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.
Cover the brown rice with 2 and 1/2 cups cold water.
Season with a little sea salt.

Cook 30 minutes over a very low heat.

Quick and Easy Chicken Breast Recipe - Lemon Makes It Refreshing
If you love the freshly cooked sauce full of great tasting meat, served on the top your favorite pasta, you will like the idea of making your homemade bolognese sauce to share with your family tonight.
Following the traditional recipe, the bolognese sauce should be cooked using a ground beef. I cook my own variation of the sauce. I use a ground veal meat to cook the bolognese sauce. As a result of using a veal meat, the sauce is tasting much smoother.
I always use a freshly ground veal, instead of the ready to use, packaged in the food store one. I cook the ground veal with a pureed plum tomatoes. In the summer, juicy, ripe tomatoes can substitute for the tomato puree. Peel and cut roughly the fresh tomatoes before adding them to the ground meat.
Simmering slowly, adding the ingredients gradually, one by one and seasoning slightly, is the secret of making your perfect, fresh and aromatic bolognese sauce.
Serve your bolognese sauce on the top of your favorite pasta. For me, the combination of bolognese sauce and freshly cooked spaghetti or spaghettini /the thinner ones/, sprinkled with a freshly grated parmesan cheese makes dinner perfect anytime.
I hope you’ll get inspired by my bolognese sauce recipe. I’d be more than happy if you leave me your comments below.

If you would like to enjoy a light, well balanced dish at dinner, prepare yourself a simple oven baked salmon with juicy vegetables. The combination of baked salmon fillets and fresh vegetables makes the dish delicious.
Talking about vegetables to combine with a salmon, there are many more options definitely. I found the best a mix of a cherry tomatoes, spring onions and red chilli pepper to use in this recipe. The chilli pepper adds a slight spicy touch to your dish.
I don’t like overcooked vegetables as a result of baking process. Especially cherry tomatoes tend to be ready very soon. The salmon fillets need a little more time to be done perfectly. I start with baking a salmon first and I add vegetables later. I bake my vegetables for 10 minutes. But if you don’t like the skin from cherry tomatoes being peeled away too easily, bake them a little shorter, about 4-5 minutes.
Serve your oven baked salmon fillets immediately. There is no additional side dish needed to enjoy your dinner. But if you feel like having something small with your baked salmon fillets, try a simply cooked sweet potato. In this case, start making your dinner with cooking the sweet potato in the pot of boiling water. To cook a large sweet potato until soft takes about 45 minutes. Peel the cooked sweet potato, cut into the circles and share with the rest of your family.

It makes it easier to take one of them at a time and divide in between the fish fillets.
I bake my fish fillets in the aluminium foil. To prevent the fish from getting in touch with the aluminium foil. I place a baking paper sheet on the foil first, then I arrange the fish fillets on the top. One fillet per each piece of foil covered with baking paper.
I usually bake a sea bass fillet in the foil with the vegetables. But I have tried to bake a halibut or a cod fillets this way also. All of them tasted delicious! It is important if you can yourself a fresh, boneless and skinless white fish fillets.

There are many varietes of preparing a salmon fillets in the oven. I am going to share with you the best oven baked salmon fillets recipe I have ever prepared. I stuff salmon fillets with a smoked salmon, the one, ready to use, you serve as a snack with a piece of fresh bread or a crunchy baguette, usually.
To prepare your salmon fillets ready to stuffing you need to butterfly it firstly, which simply means to cut each salmon fillet through to open it like a book. Using a sharp knife start cutting a salmon fillet through, from the right side to the left. Moving a knife slowly through the fillet it will start to open easily. There is nothing complicated about butterflying your salmon fillet at all. Once the salmon fillet is opened, arrange a small smoked salmon pieces over a one half of each salmon fillet, then fold over to enclose filling.
This dish tastes great when served on its own. A little baby greens or a rocket salad with balsamic vinegar can be a great companion for your baked salmon fillets.
I usually serve baked salmon with a homemade lemon mayonnaise.
Into the mixing bowl add 1 egg yolk and 1 tsp mustard.
Whisk with an electric mixer, then start adding a vegetable oil by drops.
When all the ingredients combine together well, forming a smooth consistency, start pouring in more oil slowly, until you have used up the rest of oil /about 1 cup/.
Season with a pinch of salt, ground black pepper/optional/ and finally pour in a lemon juice from a half of small lemon and combine.
Lemon juice will make your mayonnaise lighter and smoother. Simply delicious!
Lemon mayonnaise adds a refreshing touch to your oven baked salmon fillets.

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.
