Cheesy stuffed giant pasta shells

It has been a seriously long while, but I am so fkng excited to say I can see the light at the end of the tunnel with the book. I can't believe it - I have been helped and supported by so many amazing people, for a 'solo' endeavour it has been a massive team effort.

Lime, Chilli and Spring Onion Chicken Drumsticks - Dish

Roast for 40 minutes or until golden and fully cooked. Cooking time will depend on the size of the drumsticks. Dressing: Whisk all the ingredients, except the spring onions, coriander and peanuts, in a bowl.

When the chicken is cooked, remove from the oven and spoon the dressing over the drumsticks. Transfer to a serving plate and spoon over the pan juices. Falafel Chicken Schnitzel - Dish. Trim the fat off the chicken.
