I really enjoy Tilda rice, it has a lovely fluffiness about it that brings out the best in any meal it is served with. As well as tasting nice Tilda are also supporting the World Food Programme for the third year running. They have a Mums Helping Mums initiative which donates meals to mothers in Bangladesh. This helps give their unborn children the best start in life by helping them gain a healthy birth weight. A low birth weight can serious affect babies’ physical and cognitive development. So far Tilda has donated over one million meals and you can help them increase this number by buying Tilda Pure Basmati, Mums Helping Mums packs. These are in all major supermarkets priced from £4.49 for 1kg and the packs are specially marked.
As part of this inititive Tilda have a Mums Helping Mums Cookbook app which was a big success last year. They are in the process of updating it and have asked bloggers to come up with a family favourite recipe which might end up being included in the app. For each recipe they receive they will donate £100 to the WPF, so I had to join in. I had a think about a Family Favourite Recipe and remembered one my mum always used to make, Rosy Baked Chicken. It is chicken cooked in a pineapple based sauce and is really delicious.
The tomato sauce adds a rosy tinge to the chicken hence the name. I have no idea where the recipe originated from, it is one I scribbled in a notebook, copied from my mum. It always goes down well whenever I make it and it worth the extra time of making it the day before and leaving it overnight to marinade.
