Weekend Cooking Inspiration

If you’re craving an exotic yet easy and tasty dish to whip up for the whole family then look no further than this delicious Chinese Chicken and Rice dish by Annabel Karmel.

I’ve always got my eye out for tasty new recipes to try, because as the only one with any culinary skills in the family I need all the inspiration I can get! Annabel’s recipes are always my go-to as they’re quick, simple and full of flavour – while being perfectly healthy for my little brother and I.
