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.
The next day replace your chicken liver pate to the tray turning it upside down. 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.
Hope you will enjoy making your best chicken liver pate at home. Looking forward to receiving your comments below.

Best Chicken Liver Pate Recipe - Traditional Delicacy
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.
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.
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.
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:
Soak the brown rice in the cold water for an hour and half.
In the pot heat 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil over medium heat.
Rinse the brown rice in water.
Add 1 cup of brown rice to the pot.

Quick and Easy Chicken Breast Recipe - Lemon Makes It Refreshing
I guess, there is nothing simpler than cooking a fresh pasta sauce to serve as your main dish at dinner. If you like pasta sauces which combine meat and tomatoes you can enjoy your chicken tomato sauce tonight. I use chicken breasts to make this pasta sauce. There are two options when it comes to adding tomatoes to your sauce. The most of the year I use canned plum tomatoes, which taste great. I puree them but I don’t like to make a very smooth tomato puree for this purpose. I puree the tomatoes with a couple of shots only. As a result of that, the consistensy of the tomato puree is coarse, containing the larger pieces of tomatoes.
In the summer when there are fresh, juicy and bright red tomatoes available, I use a couple of them to make this sauce tasting differently. I peel and chop them roughly before I add them to the chicken. To peel the tomato skin easily, immerse the fresh tomatoes in the hot water for 30 seconds first. I cook the sauce for a couple of minutes more, then I remove the sauce pan from the heat, to keep the tomatoes as fresh as possible.
The main ingredients I use following my chicken tomato sauce recipe is chicken, plum tomatoes and a heavy cream. Adding the heavy cream at the end of cooking, helps to make the sauce smoother and tasting delicious. To use one clove of crushed garlic is enough, as we want just to enhance the flavour of the sauce slihtly. Also, adding the ingredients gradually, one by one, helps to improve the final taste of your sauce.
Serve your chicken tomato sauce on the nest of your favorite either dried or fresh pasta. I found it the best to serve tagliatelle with this sauce. Sprinkle the pasta with a freshly grated parmesan cheese over the top before serving. Finally drizzle with olive oil if you prefer.
I hope you’ll enjoy cooking your chicken tomato pasta sauce. I’d be more than happy if you leave me your comments below.
Chicken Tomato Sauce Recipe - Served with Your Favorite Pasta
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.

I like making this simple dish anytime. What I like about tacos the most, is that it looks nice, colourfully, it is low in fats, so healthy. Also, I like that I can make easy chicken tacos for dinner, but also anytime to make a healthy snack.
If you have enough time, prepare your chicken meat combined with spices in advance a let it rest in the fridge for one hour at least. This will help chicken to absorb all the spices and taste better once cooked.
I also make it easy with serving my tacos. I arrange all the ingredients in the separate bowls. Then I place a warm chicken, tortillas and cream next to the served vegetables. I make so called “tacos bar”. It not only looks great nad fresh, full of different colours, but everybody can help yourself to create their tacos and bring it to the table on the serving plate and enjoy with others.
There are many variantions of what to fill your tacos with. I am sharing my favorite and simple combination of chicken, green salad, spring onions and homemade tomato salsa, topped with a dollop of a sour cream.
Tomato salsa made from fresh tomatoes, cannot miss on the homemade chicken tacos. I used to make it from a cherry tomatoes and habanero peppers. But be careful. Habanero makes your salsa quite hot. You don’t have to use it all, start with a little chopped habanero, taste for intensity, add more chopped habanero peppers if needed. If you prefer making a milder tomato salsa, use jalapeno peppers.
Prepare your fresh tomato salsa. This will add a special touch to your chicken tacos.
Dice about 12 cherry tomatoes
Dice 1 shallot
Chop 1 habanero pepper
Toss all the ingredients together well
Add 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Add juice from 1/2 of lime
Season with a pinch of sea salt and freshly ground black pepper/optional/
Mix to combine

Everybody loves these crunchy chicken pieces. Especially those homemade. You can prepare chicken breasts in a variety of ways, baked in the oven including. I used to use a classical recipe for a long time, preparing fried chicken breasts coating them firstly with a flour, then beaten eggs and finally with a layer of a finely crushed bread crumbs. It was very tasty also.
Lately I have discovered how to make easy fried chicken breast, coating it with a layer of crushed cornflakes. The result is juicy chicken with a crispy crust. Also your fried chicken breast shouldn’t be greasy. I remove fried chicken breast from a frying pan to a bowl nestled with a paper towel, which absorbs all the excess oils easily.
I usually season chicken breast with a little sea salt only. Sometimes I season it with a little of freshly ground black pepper. But there are many options how to improve the taste of your fried chicken breast, if you prefer it more spicy. In this case combine your favorite spices with the crushed cornflakes before you start coating it.
To serve, I recommend a homemade mashed potatoes and a little garden salad. My favorite side dish is a fresh cucumber salad with vinegar.
How to make a simple cucumber salad with vinegar
Peel one medium cucumber
Using a food processor cut the cucumber
Remove the cucumber into the large salad bowl
Cut 1 spring onion and combine with cucumber
In the smal bowl combine 1 cup water, 1 tbsp brown sugar, 2 tbsp apple vinegar and 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Season the cucumber with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
Pour your vinegar over the cucumber and your salad is ready to serve
Place your cucumber salad into the fridge if serving later
Enjoy your easy fried chicken breast dinner!
