Here’s a super simple and delicious dish perfect as a snack with drinks or even for dinner. Chicken Karaage… well my version anyway 😃

Take 500gm of organic, grass fed chicken thigh fillets and cut into bit sized pieces. In a large bowl mix together 2 tablespoons of coconut flour, 1/2 teaspoon each of ground ginger, smoked paprika, cracked black pepper, salt and garlic powder.

Next toss the chicken in the coconut flour mix and you’re almost done. Deep fry chicken in batches in your healthy fat of choice. I used dripping from Grassfed beef.

I served my Chicken Karaage with a Lime Hollandaise 😜 Yes, I am Hollandaise mad ATM. Use the same recipe on my earlier post ‘Eggs A La Derek‘ just substitute white vinegar with lime juice.

Garnish Hollandaise with lime zest and serve with a lime wedge to squeeze over the top.

Move over Benedict & Florentine here’s a new take on breakfast that will send your tastebuds into orbit and leave you satiated long into the day.

I start by frying a few pieces of streaky bacon til golden and crispy. Set that aside and fry a slice of leftover meatloaf in the bacon fat (always good to have slices of leftover meatloaf in the freezer). Then poach an egg or two, mash an avocado and you’re nearly there.

The last ingredient in Eggs A La Derek is some FRESH homemade Hollandaise Sauce.

Don’t be scared… It’s sooooo simple and only takes about 5-10mins to whip up.

Here’s how…

First get the kettle on to boil. Then melt 125gm of grassfed butter in the microwave. Next in a heat proof bowl that will snugly fit over the top of a saucepan place 4 organic egg yolks and 1 tablespoon of white vinegar.

Whisk the egg yolks and vinegar vigorously until they double in volume and thicken slightly.

Pour some boiling water into a saucepan over a low heat (you only want a very gentle simmer) and place the bowl on top. Be sure the water doesn’t come into direct contact with the bowl.

Keep whisking now and slowly drizzle in the melted butter. Be sure not to stop or let the egg mix get too hot… You don’t want scrambled eggs.

Continue whisking until all the butter is incorporated and the sauce has come together and thickened up. Add a touch of salt and cayenne pepper.

Voilà, Hollandaise Sauce! Remove from heat and set aside somewhere warm until ready to plate up.

My assembly goes like this… Meatloaf Slice, Bacon, Avocado, Poached Egg, Hollandaise.
