Thai stir-fried Turkey mince with Coriander, Ginger, Chilli & Lime Pasties

Try staying that when you’ve had a drink of swevern!


A £1 pack of Gluten fee Puff Pastry
An Egg, whiskered for an Egg wash


(1) Use a large bowl to cut circles in Pastry.
(2) Ram as much filling in as you think you can get away with, then add more – Pastry is kind of stretchy!
(3) Fold over and stout at yourself for being greedy. Stretch the pastry to finally meet up at the sides
(4) Preheat the oven to 180c.
(5) Brush your Egg wash over the outsides of the pasty.
(6) Pop in the over on a parchment covered tray for 30 to 40 minutes until the pastry is browned. I washed from last night….
(7) Remove from the oven and cool on a cooling rack.

I’m going to freeze these for working fodder when I’m out. But they would be great just as they are hot with chips, peas, brown sauce (Tomato is also available). You know….

Effectively from a few left over bits & bobs at a cost of £1.20 or so for the Pastry and an Egg, I’ve got three hearty lunches which in York would easily cost £4.95 each (The Cxxxxxx Bakery - I love the look of the pasties, but I can’t justify paying anywhere near that cost, even as a treat)

Air Fryer Chicken Parmigiano Bake recipe, low cost home cooked meals

If we owned a trumpet we’d be making a dreadful racket at the moment. We’re calling this a total Air Fryer success!!!!


2 Chicken Breasts
Parma Ham to cover the Chicken
1 Tbsp of Olive Oil
1 Onion, finely chopped
2 Clove of Garlic, minced
2 Tbsp of  Tomato Puree
500g of Passata
100ml of Chicken Stock
¼ Tsp of Sugar
125g of Mozzerella Ball, torn into pieces
40g of Grated Italian Style Cheese
1 Tsp of Mixed Herbs
Salt & Pepper to season


(1) Season the Chicken with Salt and Pepper and wrap in Parma Ham length ways.
(2) Place the Breasts on a rack over Parchment paper and cook at 180c for 20 minutes in the Air Fryer.
(3) In a frying pan with a little Oil fry the Onions until softened.
(4) Add the Garlic and Tomato Puree & cook for a further minute or so.
(5) Pour in the Passata and Stock, season with Salt & Pepper.
(6) Add the Sugar and bring to the boil.
(7) Reduce the heat and allow to simmer for 4 to 5 minutes.
(8) Pour half of the sauce into a roasting tin and place the Chicken on top.
(9) Cover with the remaining sauce.
(10) Arrange the Mozzerella on top and sprinkle over the Italian Style Grated Cheese & Mixed Herbs.
(11) Allow to rest for 5 minutes and then return to the Air Fryer for a further 8 minutes or until the sauce is bubbling and the Cheese has melted.

We have quite a bit of sauce in a tub in the fridge which we’ll use up today. The quantity of sauce would suit 4 Chicken Breasts. But, well you know there’s only the two of us…..
