Braised Crispy Chicken Thighs with Spring Onions, Baby Gem and Peas

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

True comfort food in a matter of minutes; that's what this dish is all about. Crispy chicken in a white wine sauce with wonderful braised greens and a pop of zesty citrus freshness; it really doesn't get better than that for a speedy midweek supper.

Orange Polenta Cake with Honey and Rosewater Syrup

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

This fragrant and moist cake is not only visually beautiful, it also has the most delicious spiced sweet orange and honey flavour. The cake can be made gluten-free as long as you use a gluten-free baking powder.

Jerk Chicken with Mango Salsa

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

If you've never had Jerk chicken before and were wondering what all the fuss was about, well, you are in for a treat. The spicy and earthy marinade produces the most delicious tender chicken you will ever have. Served with a cooling and sweet mango salsa, this is one of my ultimate summer dishes.

Raspberry Goddess Pie

This slightly unusual rough and ready pie uses crème fraîche and raspberries as its filling and makes a wonderful summer-time dessert.

Beer Batter Fish with Pea Mash and Rosti Potato Cakes

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

This has to be one of my absolute favourite dinners. It's basically fish and chips, but with a great twist, using crispy rosti potato cakes instead of the more laborious chip. I shallow fry my goujons rather than using a deep fat fryer, with oil I keep in a bottle specifically for this purpose. When you're done and the oil is cold, just fill the bottle up to use again next time.

Summer Berry and Pistachio Pavlova Stack Cake

An epic, fruity summer dessert, which can easily be prepared ahead of time and assembled just before you are ready to serve.

Butterflied Rosemary Chicken with Romesco Sauce and Simple Steamed Greens

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

Romesco is a fantastic Spanish pepper and nut sauce or salsa, which is a wonderful addition to grilled meat or fish. There are many variations, but essentially you are looking for a sweet, spiky, smoky relish. It's a super accompaniment to my butterflied chicken breasts and steamed greens.

Kedgeree

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

This wonderful spiced rice and egg dish from colonial India makes for a rather different breakfast. Keep an eye out for undyed smoked haddock - many fishmongers and supermarkets now stock it and the flavour is far superior.

Sole Meunière

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

Fish is often forgotten as the ultimate fast food. It is an incredibly quick cooking ingredient and I would normally wax lyrically about just how healthy it is, too. But not in this recipe. No, this recipe is all about the nutty golden brown butter that forms the sauce alongside the tang of lemon juice and the salty hit from the capers. It's a bit of an all-in recipe and if you're going to make it, serve it with some steamed veggies for a delicious dinner.
