Stacked & Stuffed Chicken Breast with  Roast Butternut and Cauliflower Broccoli Rice

One thing I’ve discovered about myself is that I do not believe in boring food. For the why? There are literally so many ways to make anything and I just might be on a mission to explore them all. My latest adventure was with this chicken and mixed vegetable dish

here’s what you will need :

  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 4 small onions
  • 100g cheddar cheese
  • 1 bell pepper
  • kebab sticks
  • 2 large spinach leaves
  • 2 tbsp minced garlic
  • salt & pepper
  • chicken spice
  • 2tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 large butternut
  • 1 head of brocolli
  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp cardamon

here’s how you make it :


  1. Chop onion, spinach. pepper, cheddar to create the stuffing.
  2. You can start stacking your chicken breasts , placing a layer of stuffing in between each layer. Pierce the sticks through your stack to keep it all together. You can preheat the oven at this point.
  3. Combine your butternut, garlic, sugar, cinnamon, cardamon and honey.
  4. Place chicken stacks and butternut on baking tray and place into the oven to bake for 45 mins at 220 degrees.

5. Steam your broccoli and cauliflower until desired tenderness

6. Heat EVOO in a pan and toss in your chopped onion, minced garlic and steamed cauliflower and broccoli. Flash fry the combination and add salt and pepper to taste.

7. Once the chicken and butternut are ready you can start plating : )

Shutdown Hashbrown

Shutdown Hashbrown

Picture this, you wake up one morning, the nation is in crisis and there has been a call out for a stay away. The country has quite literally shut down and you didn’t do a grocery run that week so you are now forced to use your imagination with the little that is there. Earlier this week I got creative with one of my favourite vegetables, butternut. I truly enjoy how versatile this veg is so expect to see a lot of butternut based dishes on this blog! Im happy to share with you what I appropriately dubbed, The Shutdown Hashbrown. Enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚

perfect for breakfast or great alternate in your weekly meal prep

here’s what you will need :

  • 1 medium sized Butternut
  • 1 red Onion
  • 1/2 cup Mushroom
  • 1 Green / Red/ Yellow Pepper
  • 1 tsp minced Garlic
  • Salt & Pepper
  • pinch of Cumin
  • pinch of Cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp EVOO ( extra virgin olive oil )
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 shredded chicken breast ( optional)

here’s how you make it :

chop, dice and shred all your ingredients. don’t be afraid to have fun with your additions!

What I love about this dish is how simple it it is to make! You quite literally mix everything together and you are ready for the next part ๐Ÿ™‚ Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix it all up until you can see the mixture is ready to be made into patties

Heat up your EVOO in a pan, grab a tablespoon and get ready to scoop up your mixture to place in the pan so you can fry them up. Once cooked through, place them on parchment paper to drain any excess oil out and you are ready to serve!

alternatively, the hashbrown also works perfectly as a stir fry! Add feta & its yum o’clock!
