Sweet and sour chicken

This is a favourite takeawayish recipe, perfect for kids and people trying to convert to healthier dinners. Jam packed with extra crunchy, colourful veggies that you can sneak into your family's diet. The ish factor is the sauce, a really tasty authentic sauce but with a fraction of the sugar of shop-bought 'cook in' sauces.

Friday Fried Rice

This is a great 'catch all' recipe for the end of the week where you can use up bits of veggies and leftover chicken to make a really tasty, filling meal. And as it is takeawayish, it feels like a treat on a Friday evening. Our ish factors fresh ginger, soya sauce and toasted sesame oil add ish pizazz to a recipe that can be quite bland. Aim for more veggie and meaty bits and less rice for an interesting, delish meal.

Vegan MaPo Tofu

This is a really tasty dish - and for those who claim they do not like tofu (even thought it has no taste!), try diced aubergine instead of tofu.

Soy and Ginger Sea Bass and Asian Green Parcels

These little parcels certainly know how to make an entrance. When you serve them, make sure you get your guests to open the parcels themselves, to reveal the steaming mackerel inside. You can use this method with any fish; it’s nice served with a little rice.

Sizzling, Sticky, Spicy Pork Rice

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

Fried rice is one of my favourite things and I’m constantly looking for ways to mix it up. This recipe is one of my recent additions and has quickly become a regular. It is a bit of a kitchen-sink recipe, in that you can add whatever veggies you might have lying around at the bottom of the fridge, so feel free to experiment. Whenever I’m cooking rice for dinner, I always make a little more than I need, specifically so that I have leftovers to use in recipes like this. When storing leftover cooked rice, place in an unsealed airtight container and pop in a cool place to cool quickly and completely, before sealing and transferring to the fridge. Only reheat the rice once after this.

Sally Bee's Chinese Chicken Wraps

From: Four Live

I love the convenience of wraps but all the shop bought ones are quite high in salt and fat content. Here is a dish that gives you the excitement of Chinese food and the feeling of a wrap but by using Iceberg lettuce leaves instead of the wrap, this is an everyday dish that can be enjoyed again and again.
