Spaghetti Squash with Chicken and Mushrooms

November 8th, 2014 in Chicken, Main Dish Recipes by Julia Volhina

Fall is a perfect time to cook some squash. Spaghetti squash.

This recipe features spaghetti squash stewed with chicken and mushrooms in sour cream sauce. Prepared like this, this dish doesn’t require a side.

Stewed spaghetti squash will work great for dunner or lunch. Leftovers can be easily reheated in microwave.

Chicken and Buckwheat Casserole

July 5th, 2014 in Chicken, Main Dish Recipes by Julia Volhina

I know that buckwheat isn’t something people in this part of the world eat. But I like it, and it is very nutritious to say the least.

I also was so pleased to find roasted version of it in stock of local Whole Foods (which I either didn’t pay attention to before, or they kind of decided to be adventures and try it), so I decided to publish an interesting recipe using buckwheat this week.

Cooking buckwheat in the same pan with chicken, onions, garlics and sour cream gives it nice taste (and makes one pot less to clean, yay!). You can serve casserole as soon as it is ready, storing it leftovers in fridge and then reheating them makes a nice lunch too.

I used boneless skinless chicken thighs for this recipe, but any boneless chicken meat will work just fine.

Mushroom and Carrots Stuffed Chicken Casserole

May 31st, 2014 in Chicken, Main Dish Recipes by Julia Volhina

This is somewhat unusual dish to cook: mushroom and carrot stuffing baked inside of chicken meat “crust”.

But I assure you, it is totally worth cooking, for romantic dinner for example. Leftovers can be easily warmed up in microwave.

By the way, juices and removing casserole from the dish are a bit easier to handle if you use springform, but casserole dish would work too.

Chicken Rolls with Oranges

January 18th, 2014 in Chicken, Main Dish Recipes by Julia Volhina

This is interesting recipe for a holiday or romantic dinner: tender chicken rolls stuffed with oranges.

Small orange segments are easier to wrap, so try to find small oranges. It is also important that oranges are not bitter and don’t have seeds.

Chicken rolls stuffed with oranges taste great when paired with potato side(s), for example with mashed potatoes.

Chicken with Mustard, Honey and Curry

November 16th, 2013 in Chicken, Main Dish Recipes by Julia Volhina

Unusual combination of ingredients which produces interesting taste results: chicken pieces roasted under sauce made of mixture of melted butter, mustard, honey and curry.

This recipe is good choice for romantic or family dinner, leftovers can be reheated and served for lunch.

You can use chicken thighs (like I did), or drums, or a whole chicken sliced into portion pieces. Please note that drums will require less time for cooking.

Whole Roasted Chicken with Mayo and Garlic

November 2nd, 2013 in Chicken, Main Dish Recipes by Julia Volhina

Whole chicken smeared with mayo and garlic mix and roasted in an oven bag is probably the easiest way to cook a whole chicken.

Oven bag can be replaced by cooking foil, just cover baking pan with chicken in it with one or two layers.

When checking if chicken is cooked through use meat thermometer (around 160F-170F), or go by clear juices produced when you pierce chicken around thigh, or just by time – around 1.5h at 350F.

Chicken Kiev Cutlets

August 31st, 2013 in Chicken, Main Dish Recipes by Julia Volhina

This is one of recipes of ukrainian cuisine, after all it is named after capital of Ukraine – Kiev / Kyiv, but it is pretty popular through rest of former USSR countries.

Chicken Kiev is no ordinary recipe, but definitely one worth time spent: tender chicken meat folded around herb butter, covered in breadcrumbs and egg batter and cooked.

The trick is to fold meat and coat cutlets in batter in a way that herb butter doesn’t leak through holes while deep frying.
