Chicken, Tomato and Mushroom SaladApril 22nd, 2017 in Salads by Julia Volhina
Any time is a good time for a salad. Especially if it is a chicken salad loaded with protein, in a great combination with tomatoes and mushrooms.
This salad can be an entry on its own or a side to another dish.
I used boiled chicken for this one, however leftover rotisserie chicken or turkey will work here as well.
If you want to go lighter on calories with this recipe, use light mayo, or a combination of yogurt and mustard.
Zucchini and Chicken CasseroleOctober 22nd, 2016 in Chicken, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina
If you have an abundance of zucchini, this is definitely one recipe to try.
For me it stays somewhere on a verge between being a casserole and omelette. It has creamy texture, tons of fiber, nice amount of protein and green festive color 🙂
Zucchini and Chicken Casserole is a great choice for lunch or dinner, or even breakfast if you prepare it in advance ready for reheating.
Baked Chicken Thighs in Mustard Soy SauceMay 7th, 2016 in Chicken, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina
Chicken thighs baked in mustard and soy sauce is one of these recipes to use when you need to cook something delicious while spending minimum effort on it.
All you need to do is to whip a sauce together, cover chicken with it and stick it into the oven – cooking doesn’t get any easier than this.
Chicken thighs are juicy and easy to cook without much risk of over drying the meat, so this recipe produces very tender and juicy chicken meat with a hint of spices from curry and mustard.
Baked Chicken Rolls with Cheese and ButterFebruary 13th, 2016 in Chicken, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina
These resemble chicken kiev for the part that they are chicken rolls which are stuffed with garlicky butter. But they are much easier to make and are a bit healthier: because of no breading and no deep frying.
Chicken thin cutlets cut works perfectly for this one (if you can buy it), but whole breast can be sliced into cutlets as well, it will just be slightly more work to do to make sure slices are even and there are no holes in the chicken so stuffing doesn’t leak when cooking.
Butter and cheese stuffed chicken rolls taste great when served hot, right out the oven. Good when paired with mashed or baked potatoes. Perfect for romantic or celebratory dinner.
Prune and Walnut Stuffed Chicken SkinDecember 5th, 2015 in Chicken, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina
So here is my first attempt to make a chicken skin stuffed with ground chicken meat, walnuts, prunes and some other ingredients. I’ve got a recipe for a friend of mine and had to try.
It is a bit tricky game to get chicken out of its skin w/o damaging the skin, but I managed it (and prepared step-by-step instructions with photos along the way).
The only hiccup I had on the way was with bacon. The smoked bacon I used had very powerful and distinctive taste, and it mostly took over the taste of other ingredients. So for this recipe I suggest to use smaller amount of non-smoked bacon, or replace it with ground pork instead.
How to Skin Raw Chicken in One PieceNovember 21st, 2015 in Tips, Advices & How-to by Julia Volhina
I was working on a recipe stuffed chicken skin (it will be coming up in next post) and, after seeing how much time and effort it took me to remove the skin from a raw chicken in one piece without damaging it on the way, I decided to create a post with step-by-step instructions and pictures for others to use.
Pictures have come up not that appetizing (and for that I apologize), but at least they illustrate the process in details and are easier to follow than plain word description.
Most of the work you will be doing with a knife placed in between skin and meat slightly angled towards the meat. Work with short precise cut motions to make sure skin remains undamaged through the process. So, to get a whole raw chicken skin to use for a recipe you will need a raw chicken, sharp long knife and a tablespoon.
Hrechanyky (Ukrainian Buckwheat Fried Patties)October 10th, 2015 in Chicken, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina
There are many recipes in Ukrainian cuisine for Hrechanyky – meat and buckwheat patties.
All of them use some sort of meat (chicken, or pork, or beef, or a combination of these) which is being mixed with boiled buckwheat and some other ingredients; patties are either baked or fried, and then served either plain or with some kind of sauce. So, there are many variations.
In this recipe I used ground chicken, patties are fried and served without any sauce. Simple recipe I would say. If you are grinding chicken meat yourself, you can do it together with onion, that way there is no need to grate it.
Serve hrechanyky warm or cooled down with vegetable side or on a bread bun.
