Hot Jalapeno Orange Chicken

Hot Jalapeno Orange Chicken

Hot Jalapeno Orange Chicken

This recipe is a twist on a hugely popular American-Chinese dish of Orange Chicken. Originally a take on Sweet and Sour Chicken, this sauce utilises the Limited Edition Hot Jalapeño Marmalade, and really brings out the ripe heat of red jalapeño with the zest of Seville oranges. I can see why it’s so popular in the U.S., as it’s already a family favourite in our house, making it two nights in a row! Plus, if you love your jalapeño heat, tweak the recipe and add a spoonful of Hot Relish or Red Rings to the sauce.

Hot Jalapeno Marmalade Bread and Butter Pudding

Hot Jalapeno Marmalade Bread and Butter Pudding

Nutella & Marmalade Brioche

Bread and Butter Pudding

The humble bread and butter pudding has been around since the 18th century, so it has obviously had many iterations over the years. Lately I have wanted to utilise the already buttery brioche, and this marmalade was perfect to bring the bitterness needed to balance the dish. This recipe is for those who want a quick and easy pudding fix which just takes minutes to make and who love the decadent combination of bitter orange and chocolate. All supermarkets sell brioche rolls, so you most probably already have the ingredients in your kitchen.

Serves 4-6


  • 8 plain brioche rolls (or with chocolate chips)

1. Heat your oven to 350°F (180°C)

2. Grease an ovenproof dish with the butter.

3. Cut the brioche rolls in half lengthways, and lightly spread the bottom halves with the Nutella and the top halves with the marmalade.

4. To make the custard, heat the milk in a pan on a low setting until it’s almost simmering. Add the vanilla and keep stirring.

5. Meanwhile whisk the egg and caster sugar in a large bowl and add a 1/3 of the hot milk to the egg mixture and whisk.

6. Pour the egg mixture back into the pan of remaining hot milk and cook over low heat stirring continuously until the custard coats the back of a spoon. 

7. Remove from the heat and continue to stir for another minute. 

8. Arrange the brioche in the dish, pour over the custard, and sprinkle the caster sugar over the top.

9. Place in the oven for 30 minutes, until golden brown.

Lobster Tacos

Lobster Tacos

Lobster Tacos

I think we all deserve a treat at the moment, so why don’t you bring those special holiday vibes into your home with this very simple recipe for fresh and zingy lobster tacos. I know that the price of lobster can be a prohibitive factor for us, which is why it’s only an occasional treat, but we can now buy raw frozen lobster tails from most supermarkets (look for the deals) which is a real game changer. However, if you prefer, the lobster can be swapped out for prawns, and you will still have a delicious taco. We love seeing what you create at home, so please tag us in your posts on Twitter or Instagram @HaynesGourmet
