Have you seen my recent post on the new Haloodies cooked chicken range? Here are couple of ideas on how we used some of the products.
Cajun Chicken baguettes
Ready sliced chicken breast was just asking to be used in a sandwich! I made these healthy, super-filling baguettes for lunch the other day - Hubby and I liked them so much, that I made them again the following day (although we already used the pack of Cajun Chicken Breast slices, so I put Chargrilled Chicken Mini Fillets in instead).
For 2 baguettes:
- pack of Haloodies Sliced Cajun Chicken Breast
- 1 mini gem lettuce
- 1 tomato
- 8-10 cucumber slices
- 1 ripe avocado
Cut the baguettes open, careful not to cut right through. Spread a little bit of mayonnaise on one half, cover with lettuce, sliced tomato and cucumber. Place chicken slices on top (you can warm them up in the oven a little bit, or just use them cold). Mash the avocado and spread on the other half of the baguette. Season with some salt and pepper if needed - I just added a few olives for myself, and sliced jalapenos for Hubby. Carefully close the baguettes (they ended up quite full!) and enjoy.
Southern Fried Chicken wraps
The Southern Fried Chicken from Haloodies is definitely something for the fans of spice. It reminds me of the chicken we sometimes get in one of the town's fast foods, so I chose to use it in wraps.
For 2 wraps:
- pack of Haloodies Southern Fried Chicken Mini Fillets
- tortilla wraps
- 1 mini gem lettuce
- 1 small onion
- 1/3 red pepper
- 1/2 yellow pepper
- 1/2 tsp ground coriander
- 1/2 tsp paprika
- 1/4 tsp chilli powder
- mayonnaise or your other preferred sauce
Slice the onion and both peppers. Heat up a little bit of oil or butter in a frying pan, add the onion and caramelise slightly. Once it starts softening, add the spices and sliced peppers. Cook together until the peppers are soft - unless you prefer a slight crunch to them. Place the lettuce over about 1/3 of the tortilla. Warm up the chicken per instructions on the packet, place on top of the lettuce, and drizzle with your choice of sauce - I went for the mayo to balance the heat a little bit. Add cooked vegetables, and carefully roll the wraps.
I found the Southern Fried chicken a little too spicy for Adam, so here's an option for the younger Haloodies - use the Battered Chicken Bites instead. I also skipped the onions and peppers, knowing that Mr Fussy would just keep spitting them out ;)
