    strip chicken meet from the leftover chicken and add to pot .

    Cube and dice , carrots , parsnips etc and add to pot .

    slowly bring to the boil over the next few hours , stirring ocasionally and adding salt to taste - each time you take the lid off to stir it will fill the kitchen with a lovely aroma making everyone hungry .

    After a evenings boiling turn the hob off , leave it to cool over night and soak up the flavours .

    Eveningstar's Spanish Chicken Stew

    Feeds four

    1 tablespoon oil
    150g chorizo - chopped into little cubes
    1 onion - finely chopped)
    1 teaspoon paprika (more to taste if required)
    2 teaspoons spanish paella herb mix (if you can get it but not essential)
    bag spinach leaves - chopped
    400g tin chopped tomatoes
    1 tablespoon sundried tomato paste
    1 400g tin chopped tomatoes
    1 400g tin chickpeas
    Cooked chicken shredded
    salt and pepper

    Heat the oil in a pan (I always use a wok) and when warm add the chorizo.
    Heat until the oil starts coming out of the chorizo and then add the onion.
    Turn heat down and cook for 15 mins without colouring the onions. Keep adding water if it looks like it's catching.
    Then add the paprika and paella herb mix if using and cook for one minute.
    Add spinach, tomatoes, tomato paste, chickpeas and enough stock to cover everything, bring to boil and then simmer for 30 mins.
    If you're making it at home, it's nice to take a third of the mixture out and puree it in a blender before returning to the pan to thicken the sauce a bit but not essential for the van!
    Add the chicken, add more stock and more paprika if it needs it, add salt and pepper and heat through.
    Serve with rice and grated cheese (manchego to be authentic but anything will do).

    Marowak's Piri Piri Chicken Lovers Recipe

    I first made this for our 1 year anniversary and it then became a bit of a tradition so every new years eve I make this.
    You will need:

    4 Chicken Breasts
    2 Red Chillis
    1 Red Pepper
    3 tbsp Red Wine Vinegar
    4 tbsp Olive Oil

    Then some salad leaves to go with it - I also like it with some new spuds.
    Most of this is made pre camping but you can bring the marinaded chicken with you.

    So to make it
    Halve and seed the chillis and peppers. Chop chilli finely and Pepper Rough.
    Put into a food processor with the oil and vinegar and whizz it up. />
    Then slash the chicken breasts and put in a bowl - pour over 3/4s of the whizzed up delights. Its best to leave this to marinade over night in a fridge.

    Then to cook it - you put it in a frying pan (griddle one is best) and cook for about 8 mins - turn it a few times.

    Once its cooked put onto the bed of salads and then pour the rest of the marinade over the chicken and salad.

    sit back and enjoy your dinner.

    Jen W's Balsamic Chicken

    Chicken (I prefer chicken thighs for flavour)
    balsamic vinegar
    olive oil
    sea salt
    red pepper/chilli flakes

    Combine equal amounts of oil & vinegar with chopped garlic (to taste), and a grind of sea salt and a sprinkling of chilli flakes in a plastic bag. Marinade chicken (at least 30 mins but can leave overnight if you don't mind purple chicken

    Cook chicken (if at home oven grill but will work on a bbq) and serve with grilled or roasted veggies (at home we cook the chicken on a grill over the veg so that the marinade drips into the veg - if in the van put a splash of vinegar in with your veg when you griddle them)

    Birdy's Chicken Tagine

    This idea came into my head an is ideal for lunch or dinner. But bare in mind it takes about 1 1/2 hours to do.


    For 4 people:

    Slice 4 chicken breasts and add previously fried 2 onions, 2 sliced yellow peppers, a couple of slices of lemons and a good squeeze of both halves, a tin of morning apricots and the juice, vegetable stock made up to 500ml plus another 150ml water. 5 tea spoon of ground ginger and 5 tea spoons of ground cinnamon. Cover and leave to fester on a medium heat to condense the liquid and bit and infuse fr about 40 mins.

    Do what you have to with the packet couscous but while this is doing why it should, remove cover off the tagine and turn up the heat.

    Once the couscous is ready serve like in the picture with a ring of spinach leaves.

    Bertiebot's Chicken, aubergine and pea pilaf

    Here is a dead easy, one pan recipe for chicken, aubergine and pea pilaff. Bit of a family favourite.

    1 1/2 tb sunflower oil
    1 small onion chopped
    1 aubergine cut into 1.5 pieces
    6 chicken thigh fillets, cubed
    2 tbs mild curry paste
    250g long grain rice
    500 ml chicken stock
    150g frozen peas
    3 tbs chopped coriander

    Heat 1 tbs oil in the pan and saute the onion and aubergine till golden, about 8 mins. Set the vegetables aside and add remaining oil with the chicken to the pan, season and fry for 5 mins until browned. Return the onion and aubergine to the pan.
    Add the curry paste and rice, stir for 1 minute, then add the stock. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to a slow simmer. Cover and cook for 10 mins, then add the peas and cook, covered for a further 5 mins. Take off the heat and set aside for 5 mins, then stir in the coriander and serve.

    Tastes better when cooked in a camper too!
