Best Oven Baked Chicken – With Aromatic Stuffing

IMG_3158

 

Whole baked chicken  is a great option of making a tasty dinner. Beautiful smell spreads all around the house while your chicken is baking. There are many variations of  preparing a whole chicken in the oven. For me the best oven baked chicken is prepared by following a very simple recipe. A combination of a good quality extra virgin olive oil, red paprika and a little sea salt spread over outside and inside of whole chicken is good enough to bake a great tasting and crispy chicken.

Every time I prepare an oven baked chicken I start with making a stuffing. I store my stuffing in the fridge while preparing the chicken. It is great to serve baked chicken with a piece of aromatic stuffing on the serving plate. I make a stuffing without adding an extra meat into it. I usually bake my stuffing separately in the same baking dish with a chicken. You can stuff the inside of chicken or place a thin layer of stuffing under the chicken’s breast skin also.

 

 How  to Make a Stuffing for the Best Oven Baked Chicken

Prepare all the ingredients:

  • 6 slices of white bread
  • 1 cup whole lukewarm milk
  • 50 g  unsalted, softened butter
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 2 chopped spring onions
  • 1/4 tsp grated nutmeg

Follow my simple recipe:

  1. Cut white bread into cubes and add to the bowl.
  2. Pour milk over the bread and let soak for 15 minutes.
  3. In the large bowl combine softened butter, egg yolks and sea salt and beat until smooth.
  4. Add ground nutmeg, spring onions and soaked white bread and stir to combine well.
  5. Store in the fridge before use.

 

I usually bake a couple of small potatoes in the baking dish together with chicken and stuffing. It is the best to serve either oven baked chicken leg or breast immediately with potatoes and a piece of stuffing arranged on the serving plate.

Additionally I  serve a small fresh green leaf salad with olive oil dressing  as a side dish.

Hope you will enjoy  baking your whole chicken with stuffing at home. Looking forward to receiving your comments below. :)

Preparing a traditional chicken liver pate takes a little more time and effort , but it is worth to make it definitely. As a result of following my best chicken liver pate recipe you will enjoy a delicate, smooth and aromatic chicken liver pate.

There are three basic ingredients which cannot be missing in the process of making a traditional chicken liver pate. Cooking a chicken liver pate starts with melting the duck fat. Simmering the chicken livers slowly with Port wine helps to make them tender while all the alcohol evaporates. Finally, garlic adds a special aroma to the chicken liver pate.

Once your chicken liver pate is ready it is necessary to let it rest in the fridge. I transfer my chicken liver pate into the bread loaf usually. You can use any other glass or ceramic dish to store the chicken liver pate in the fridge. It takes a couple of hours to chill the chicken liver pate completely, so the best is to let it rest overnight.

Cut with a sharp knife into about 1 inch thick pieces and arrange on the serving plates, cutting each piece of chicken liver pate crosswise. Add a spoonful of  canned cranberries on each serving plate. Serve with a piece of crunchy fresh bread or toast if you prefer.

How To Make a Chicken Curry – Aromatic and Spicy

About How to Make a Chicken Curry

I would like to share with you my favorite recipe how to make a chicken curry. In my recipe I combine a plenty of fresh vegetables with chicken. You can make this curry using vegetables only, if you like vegetarian meals. I prefer to make a curry with chicken.

I always use a fresh chicken breasts instead of frozen. The fresh chicken tends to be much more juicy and tender. In my  chicken curry recipe I use quite a lot spices to make my chicken curry. The mixture of all the spices in combination with a coconut milk, makes the chicken curry incredibly aromatic and tasty. Either using of fresh curry leaves or a ground indian curry powder is great to add a special touch to your chicken curry.

You can make your chicken curry in the strength of your choice. In this recipe I use the whole green chilli peppers. I don’t deseed them, so my chicken curry is quite spicy in the result. And the best chicken curry should be spicy! If you prefer a milder taste, just cut your green chilli peppers lenghtwise and deseed them.

I also add potatoes and sweet potatoes to the chicken curry. Sweet potatoes add a slightly sweet taste to the chicken curry and help to balance the acidity of the tomatoes, I use to cook in the chicken curry  also. Adding the potatoes to the chicken curry helps to thicken the sauce at the end of cooking. So don’t worry if you feel like your chicken curry sauce is not thick enough.

You can substitute the fresh tomatoes for a tin of peeled plum tomatoes, if you don’t have any at the moment. I cook a chicken slowly until tender, in the smooth sauce of tomatoes and coconut milk. I don’t like to overcook the vegetables and potatoes.. I add them gradually during the cooking, because each kind of vegetables deserves a different time of cooking.

The side dish is really not necessary to serve with your chicken curry. Just in case you would prefer having a light side dish, the fluffy basmati rice is great to serve with.

Hope you will get inspired by my recipe about how to make a chicken curry  and you will enjoy cooking your dinner. :)

You can cook the whole chicken in the soup or you can separate the chicken breasts before cooking and use them for frying or making a juicy chicken steaks later.

There are many serving options of the chicken soup. Some people prefer to have the chicken soup thick, served with chicken cut into small pieces, vegetables and noodles. Chicken soup served this way can substitute your main dinner dish. But it can be served as a first course also, without meat, with carrots sliced into a little circles and noodles if you like.

I always strain the soup through the sieve to have it clear. I cut chicken and carrots and serve them in a separate bowls, so everybody can enjoy the chicken soup in the way the most preffered.

Usually, there are the egg noodles added to  the chicken soup. I cook either a noodles or I make a special soup dumplings to serve my chicken soup with.

While the soup is simmering slowly, you can make these soup dumplings simply:

  • In the bowl combine 30g softened, unsalted butter, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1 whole egg and 1 egg yolk.
  • Whisk until all the ingredients combine together well.
  • Add about 7-8 tbsp coarse flour/semolina type/ and combine until nice soft dough forms.
  • In the large pot heat a water until it starts to boil.
  • Lower the heat to medium.
  • Make a little dumplings, separating a small amounts of the dough with a teaspoon and adding them to the boiling water one by one.
  • Cook 10 minutes.
  • Drain the dumplings through the colander and remove them into the serving bowl.
  • Arrange a couple of dumplings in the soup bowl and pour a hot chicken soup over.

Serve your chicken soup hot with a little pieces of chicken, carrots and dumplings or noodles.

I hope you’ll enjoy cooking your chicken soup. Looking forward to receiving your commenst below. :)

How To Make Chicken Steak – Tender and Juicy

IMG_3112

I found cooking a chicken steak as one of the mostly frequently prepared dinners for my family. Well prepared, a simple chicken steak can become one of the most delicious dinners also.

I always make a chicken steak from the fresh chicken breasts instead of frozen. I  spread a good quality extra virgin olive oil all over the chicken, season it with a little sea salt and spices and I let it rest in the fridge for one hour at least. The chicken absorbs the olive oil and spices mixture and it helps to make the chicken juicy and improve the chicken steak’s taste.

To season the chicken I use a very mild combination of the ground spices which includes black pepper, red chilli pepper, garlic and  mustard seed. The spices in combination with olive oil add a great flavor to the chicken.

Cooking of the chicken staeks is very fast. Using of the cast iron grill pan is the best for the perfect result. I heat my cast iron grill pan on the stove until hot but not smoking. It takes about 5 minutes. I grease the grill pan with a little olive oil. I grill the chicken steaks over medium heat, 5 minutes each side. Once the cast iron grill pan heated, it keeps the same temperature, so I know that my steaks will be cooked perfectly.

A simple side dish is great to serve with your chicken steaks. I usually grill a vegetables on the same cast iron grill pan. Sometimes I grill a zucchini sliced into thin circles alone, or I make a mixture of the grilled vegetables, like a thinly sliced zucchini, red and yellow bell peppers, button mushrooms and white onions.I grease a grill pan with a little of olive oil and add vegetable gradually, as the cooking time of each of them is different. I start with paprika, then I add zuchini, mushrooms and onions finally. It is very fast to make this simple side dish and it tastes delicious in combination with chicken steak.

Serve your chicken steaks with vegetables immediately.

Hope you will find my chicken steak recipe  inspiring and you will enjoy cooking your dinner. Looking forward to receiving your comments below. :)

How to Make Chicken Burritos – Red Beans Included

IMG_3091

Making burritos is simple and the most of people enjoy burritos as a quick to prepare lunch or dinner. I usually make my burritos using a chicken breasts, cut into chunks. The most favorite combination to make a burrito filling in our family is a chicken with red beans.

I don’t make the chicken burritos too much spicy usually. Adding a cayenne red pepper makes the burritos spicy enough. Those who prefer to enjoy eating a very spicy burritos, can add the hot tomato salsa on the top of filling before wrapping up the burritos.

I like to prepare the chicken for burritos in advance. It makes chicken tasting even more delicious, once it has enough time to absorb all the spices. I combine the chicken with all the spices in the large bowl. Always use the larger bowl than the one you thought you’d need. :) I put the chicken into the fridge to let it rest for at least one hour. Also you can prepare your chicken a day before.

The rest of preparing your chicken burritos is very quick and easy. It is not necessary to overcook the chicken. I usually cook it for 5 – 7 minutes until cooked through, stirring constantly. The chicken will start to produce quite enough juices. I wait until the juices reduce slightly, before adding the red beans finally. I combine chicken with red beans, stirring for additional 1-2 minutes. Then I remove my burrito filling from the heat.

Heat your wheat tortillas slightly and arrange the chicken and red beans filling in the middle of each of them. Wrap the tortillas tightly to make burritos and serve immediately.

I hope you will enjoy making your homemade chicken burritos and you will get inspired by my simple recipe. Looking forward to receiving your comments below. :)

Quick and Easy Chicken Breast Recipe – Lemon Makes It Refreshing

IMG_3080

There are so many variations of cooking a chicken breasts on the stove! Every time I need to cook a tasty dinner and I don’t want to spend too much time in the kitchen, I follow this quick and easy chicken breast recipe.

What I like about cooking a chicken breasts, is that it never takes a long time to prepare them.  In this simple, but a  delicious dish, I combine a fresh chicken breasts with quite a large amount of white onions and green olives. Adding the ingredients one by one while cooking a chicken breasts slowly, allowes the chicken to absorp the different tastes gradually. A taste of fresh lemon adds a special refreshing touch to your dish finally.

What makes a chicken breasts tasting special following this recipe,  is using a little saffron, which adds a significant colour to the chicken also.

There is no need to make an additional side dish to serve your chicken breasts with olives and lemon. I’ve tried to serve a simple cooked brown rice. It was a great combination! Also the brown rice is a very healthy side dish, rich in minerals and vitamins.

For the best result, it is good to soak the brown rice in the cold water for half an hour before you start to cook. Soaking in the water helps the rice to soften better.

Follow the simple steps to cook the brown rice:

  1. Soak the brown rice in the cold water for an hour and half.
  2. In the pot heat 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil over medium heat.
  3. Rinse the brown rice in water.
  4. Add 1 cup of brown rice to the pot.
  5. Cover the brown rice with 2 and 1/2 cups cold water.
  6. Season with a little sea salt.
  7. Wait until it starts to boil.
  8. Lower the heat.
  9. Cook 30 minutes over a very low heat.
  10. Serve and enjoy.

I hope you will enjoy cooking your quick and easy chicken breasts dinner. I’d be more than happy to receiving your comments below. :)

Green Thai Chicken Curry Recipe

IMG_3066

Popular in Thailand, this dish can be made at home easily. It is called green for its typical colour coming from green paste, which is what we basically start to make our green thai chicken curry with. If you make your homemade green paste, don’t be surprised by its heat intensity. It is very hot indeed. Much hotter than this one ready to use you can buy in the supermarket. If you don’t want your chicken curry to be spicy too much, be careful about the amount of green paste you start to make your green chicken curry with.

When I wanted to make my chicken curry milder, I was not starting to cook it with a green paste at all. But I have picked up a couple of basic green paste ingredients, a crushed clove of garlic, chopped shallot, grated knob of ginger and two whole green chilli peppers. I combined them in the pan with a groundnut oil over medium heat. I followed the rest of the original thai green chicken recipe as usual. My chicken curry cooked this way was spicy enough and tasting delicious.

What I like about cooking this exotic dish, is a combination of the tender chicken and refreshing vegetables, all in one pan. On the top of that, the coconut milk adds a special touch to the dish and makes it really creamy. Simply delicious!

Simmering slowly in the coconut milk, makes chicken really tender. I add vegetables later, after cooking the chicken for a while, trying to not overcook them.

 

To make a homemade green curry paste you will need:

 

3 large green chillies, deseeded, chopped
4 cloves of garlic, sliced
3 shallots, chopped
2 tsp ground coriander
knob of ginger, about 2 cm, peeled, chopped
2 tbsp coriander leaves, chopped
1 tsp sea salt
lemongrass stalks, chopped/optional/
2 tbsp groundnut oil

 

Combine all the green curry paste ingredients  in  the jar of an electric blender. Blend together until smooth.

It is the best to serve your green chicken curry with steamed basmati rice.

Hope you will enjoy cooking your green chicken curry  and you will succeed in achieving the desired strength. :)

Looking forward to receiving your comments below. Enjoy your green chicken curry dinner!

Baked Whole Chicken Recipe – Spicy and Juicy

IMG_3055

I was quite surprised by the result of following this baked whole chicken recipe. It is very easy to follow and preparation time is short. But the result is incredibly juicy and aromatic chicken. The baked chicken by following my recipe should be quite spicy, so everybody who loves  spicy dishes will satisfy its taste buds by eating it definitely. :)

There is one specialty about preparing this baked chicken. It has to be cut out along the chicken’s backbone and then spread out flat in the roasting pan, left in one piece, as you can see on the picture above. There is nothing complicated about  cutting out the chicken’s backbone. Simply get yourself a long and sharp kitchen knife and lay your chicken breasts side down on a cutting board. Move your knife slowly along the chicken’s backbone and the chicken will start to open easily. Transfer your chicken to the roasting pan and press on it to flatten. Simple as that! :)

I use the cast iron round roasting pan with the deep  ridges on the bottom to bake this chicken. During the baking, the chicken produces quite a lot of juices, so the ridges on the bottom of the roasting pan help the juices to flow away easily.

Serving your baked chicken with a couple of pieces of crunchy ciabatta and a little fresh green salad would be perfect. Reserve an aromatic chicken juices to pour over the chicken before serving. I found it tasty to combine a juicy baked chicken and a green salad with a dressing made with a heavy cream.

 

Here’s my tip on how to make a simple green leaf salad with a creamy dressing.

  • Rinse green salad leafs with cold water.
  • Dry and cut salad leafs with ceramic knife into desired size.
  • Arrange salad in the large salad bowl.
  • Pour 1 cup heavy cream into the smaller bowl.
  • Add juice from 1/2 of lemon and 2 tbsp icing sugar.
  • Combine well.
  • Pour the cream dressing over your green salad.
  • Serve immediately or store in the fridge.

Hope you will enjoy baking your juicy whole chicken. I’d be more than happy to find your comments below. :)
