CarolCooks2 in my kitchen…Green Chicken Stirfry…

Welcome to my kitchen…due to the popularity of the Chicken and Capers I have decided that for a few weeks I will post our favourite chicken recipes…

Sustainably raised chicken is lovely white meat which is healthy for us…in these recipes, you can use any cut of the chicken which you prefer..we like all the cuts of the chicken and it does depend on the recipe but even chicken on the bone doesn’t take that long to cook and is often more flavoursome.

This recipe uses a mix of green vegetables and herbs hence the name “Green Chicken” it is quick to cook and tasty…we love garlic and chillies but feel free to reduce the garlic and the chillies to your taste…


  • 1 kilo of chicken pieces cut up fairly small.
  • 4/5 cloves of garlic
  • A piece of fresh ginger chopped finely
  • A bunch of green onions chopped
  • A handful of Coriander…
  • A handful of Mint
  • 2 bunches of spinach
  • 1/2 tsp of black pepper
  • 2/3 green chillies deseeded if you like milder heat.

Let’s cook!

Add a tbsp of ghee or oil to a pan over medium heat while it is heating crush the chillies, garlic and ginger in a pestle and mortar and add to the oil cook for about a minute stirring as we don’t want to burn the garlic add the onions and allow to sweat but not colour too much about 3-4 minutes…

Add the chicken and black pepper, stir and lower the heat until the chicken is golden in colour.


Clean and wilt the spinach for 1-2 mins and set aside.

Once the chicken is golden add the spinach and cook for a further 5-10 mins on medium heat add the coriander and mint in the last 3 mins stir to combine. Check and add salt if required.

This is quite a dry stir fry but delicious served with rice…

With our global obsession with food and recipes, it can sometimes get a little confusing with measurements and the differing names for the foods we are familiar with. This week Carol Taylor clarifies a few things for us.

I am back after a break where I have been concentrating not only on being a nanny, my son has been away working. I have also been working on my novel and my cookbook.

Writing a novel is so much easier for me than writing a cookbook…Yes I cook and I am not a bad cook…My blog I find easy to write…Not so a Cookbook.

I like the personal touch but is it too much? I don’t like pages and pages of recipes. I also find that of all the cookbooks I possess, I have only ever made a handful of the recipes from the…
