Hoisin Chicken/Turkey Wraps/Rolls Ingredients 200g cooked strips of turkey or chicken, 4 tbsp hoisin sauce, 2 flour tortillas, ¼ cucumber cut into strips, 4 spring onions cut into fine strips. Method 1. Heat the grill to high. 2. Mix the turkey or chicken with half of the sauce so it’s coated, then lay it out in an ovenproof dish and grill until it’s sizzling. 3. Warm the tortillas under the grill, but not for too long or they’ll burn. 4. Spread the rest of the sauce onto the warmed tortillas, then place the turkey or chicken, cucumber and spring onions on top. Wrap it up, but it in half and enjoy while it’s still warm. Sweet & Sour Chicken Ingredients 2 chicken breasts cut into chunks, 1 finely chopped onion, 1 small deseeded and chopped red pepper, 1 crushed garlic clove, 1 tbsp vinegar, 5 tbsps tomato ketchup, 2 tbsps sugar, small tin pineapple pieces, 1 tsp oil.

Friends Of Buckshaw Village Lancashire County Council have advised of their intention to close Euxton Lane overnight at the railway bridge across a couple of weekends in February, to allow for the removal of vegetation and for the installation of new hazard warning signage. The closure will run from 10pm to 6am on both the 17th to 18th February and the 24th to 25th February. Follow us on www.facebook.com/buckshawfriends
