Recipe of the week #1

Here, in our recipe section, we bring to you our favourite recipes for using up leftover foods. Forage, corporate scavenge, bin-dive; do what-ever it takes to get the ingredients, here’s what you can do with them.

Cheats Chicken Casserole


  • One vegetable stock cube
  • One x-large glass of white wine
  • One tin of vegetable soup (any you can get hold of will do, but lentil and vegetable is particularly good)
  • 2 chopped chicken breasts
  • One small white onion
  • One small red onion
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic
  • Whatever vegetables you can get your hands on/ have left over: carrots, green beans, leaks, broccoli, courgette; anything/everything you want
  • A few handfuls of coriander (or parsley if that’s all you can get hold of)
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and Pepper

 What to do:

  1. Heat a little oil in a big casserole dish (you can do this on the hob).
  2. Heat the onion and vegetables for a few minutes until soft.
  3. Add the garlic and chicken. Cook for another minute, until the chicken is lightly browned.
  4. Dissolve the vegetable stock cube in one small cup of boiling water.
  5. Add the soup, vegetable stock, wine, salt, pepper and chopped coriander to the casserole.
  6. Cook in the oven on about 180’ for an hour or so, stirring occasionally.
  7. Serve with mashed potato/jacket potato/rice/pasta/bread or eat alone as a soup.
  8. Put what’s left in the fridge and you’ve got an easy, tasty, healthy meal to heat up for the rest of the week.
