CHICKEN COOKED IN CIDER

A couple of years ago my youngest son had a great holiday in Tasmania and came back with several bottles of a new cider he’d discovered – Pagan Cider.  Since then we always have a few bottles in the fridge, one of which I’m now going to use to try this chicken recipe – guess I’d better make it when he’s coming for dinner.

CREAMED CABBAGE

My husband loves cabbage so I use it in stir fries, cook it with butter and bacon and basically add it to anything I think it will go with, but I must admit I do have trouble finding interesting way to prepare it.  Found this recipe in Mum’s collection and think I’ll try it out on him, it certainly is different.

BEEF AND POTATO PAN PIE

I like the sound of this – steak, onion, mushroom and red wine topped with potato, don’t think you can go wrong with that combination.  I would suggest though that if you don’t have an ovenproof pan it would be better to transfer the meat to an casserole dish as I don’t think the potato cook all the way through under the grill.
