I would like to present three recipes, two of them quick to do, the 3rd one is a bit time consuming but very rewarding.
1. Chicken goulash.
It is a soup and with chicken it is done in about 30 minutes, while a regular goulash takes over an hour if made of beef.
- head of red onion
- 1 big chicken breast
- paprika powder
- some garlic
- bit of oil
- few potatoes
- chilli flakes
- 3-4 bay leaves
Fine dice the onion, the smaller the better and cook it on the oil until its kinda glassy looking. Pull it off the fire (this is very important) and
put about a soup spoon of paprika powder on it. Mix it with the onion while still off the hob. This is important because the paprika is so fine it
will burn quickly. Put the diced chicken breast, mix it up then put water on it staright away. Not much, just to cover the chicken. Salt, crushed
black pepper, garlic, chilli, bay leaf, can go in right away. Stir. Put the diced carrots, parsnip and potato in. Fill the dish with water about an
inch over the mix. Cook for about 30 minutes. When the carrots are soft or al dente, depens on how you like it, taste the soup, put more salt pepper
etc if needed, cook it for 2 more minutes and its pretty much done.
Mushroom, spinach tortellini.
Done in 30 minutes
- one bagof Spinach stuffed tortellini
- 8-10 white mushroom
- half head of a big red onion
- bit of oil
- 100g chorizo
- some bacon
- cooking cream
- grated mozzarella cheese one bag (150g)
- salt, crushed black pepper, garlic
Put the tortellini in boiling water and cook it done. Drain it and put it away for now. While the tortellini is boiling, chop the onion fine, slice
the chorizo, dice the bacon, wash and slice the shrooms.
Put some oil into your pan and put the bacon and chorizo right in. When they start sweating the fat out, put the diced onion in. Stir it until the
onion get glassy. I found uncooked onion giving a lot of acid after eating so its important to cook them well but not burn them. Put the sliced
mushrooms in, salt pepper garlic. The salt will push some liquid out of the mushrooms, enough so it will not burn, but just in case I always pour a
bit of beer on it too. ( I am usually drinking beer while cooking anyway) Slowly cook it until there is only a little bit of liquid left. By this time
everything should be soft. Put the tortellini on top and stir. Now you gotta be quick for the next 5 minutes... Pour the cooking (2dl) cream on it and
let it boil once while continously stir. Put the bag of grated cheese on it and stir like crazy. When the cheese all melted together with everything,
your dish is done.
No name chicken dish
About 45min to one hour, depends how drunk you are
- 2x nice sized chicken breasts
- 4-5 potatoes
- lotsa garlic
- head of red onion
- some oil, salt black crushed pepper
- american yellow mustard
Peal the taters and dice them about 1.5cm to 1.5 cm qubes, then put them in water and cook them till ALMOST soft.
While the potatoes cooking, use a frying pan, oil, bacon on it. When the fat comes out of the bacon, put the onion on and make it well you guessed
right, glassy. Put the diced chicken breast on, salt, pepper, garlic. Cook it until the chicken is soft. Dont forget a sip of beer on it, it will help
to get some liquid on so your dish will not burn. Put a table spoon of mustard on it and stir.
When your potatoes are almost soft, drain it and deep fry them. This will be amazing believe me, cooked poatatoes fried after is the best! Once fried
mix them with your meat.
