Roast chicken thighs, stir fry and mmm.. chocolate

It was a busy weekend and with a friend over I wanted to make a nice dinner in quite a short time as we were out for most of the day. By the time we made it home I wanted to cook chicken thighs as they are quite quick and easy.

Roast chicken thighs with stir fry and mango sauce, serves 4 – oven 180C

For roasting

  • chicken thighs, 2-3 per person 
  • butternut squash, cut in to chunks

Spice mix

  • ground cumin
  • paprika powder
  • cayenne pepper
  • black pepper
  • salt
  • 1 tsp oil

Mix all the spice ingredients and cover the butternut squash and chicken. Place on an oven proof tray and bake for 30 minutes.



Whilst they are cooking prepare the sir fry

Veg stir fry 

  • Carrot, sliced
  • Mushrooms, sliced, button and shitake
  • 1 onion, cut in to wedges
  • Leek, sliced
  • Spring onion, sliced
  • Red pepper, cubed
  • Broccoli (cut in to florets and pre steamed for 5 minutes)

Add the oil to a hot wok and when it is smoking add the veg and cook, it takes about 5 minutes in total.

Mango chilli sauce 

  • 1/2 Mango cubed 
  • 1 chilli, finely chopped
  • 3 tsp light creme fraiche
  • 1 tbsp youghurt
  • salt & pepper

Mix all the ingredients and set aside until the rest is ready to serve.



A friend of mine gave me a tip on a dessert that I had never heard of before but it was so simplistic I had to try it! I melted chocolate, added some honey and mixed it with low fat yoghurt. It is just as easy as that!
