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.

Veal Rolls with Pear

March 15th, 2014 in Beef, Main Dish Recipes by Julia Volhina

I saw veal rolls with pear meal in some TV show once and wanted to try it ever since.

The combination of ingredients in this recipe is unusual, veal is pretty expensive and somewhat hard to find here in US. This is probably the reason why I got to this recipe only now.

I used veal scallopini here, because they are already sliced, and it is easier to pick meat pieces of right amount and size. But you can also use whole piece of veal meat and slice it yourself. As for the pear, use ripe fragrant pear for better results.

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.

Meat Stew with Beer, Mushrooms and Vegetables

August 17th, 2013 in Beef, Main Dish Recipes, Pork by Julia Volhina

Meat stewed with mushrooms and vegetables in beer. It works good for dinner, left overs can be reheated for lunch. Boiled potato side dishes will go good with such meat.

I used beef for this recipe, but it will work good with either pork or beef. Tomato paste or canned tomatoes can be used instead of fresh tomatoes.

Amount of beer to use for this recipe will depend on the size of the pot you use, it should be enough to cover meat completely while cooking.

Salmon in Mustard, Lemon Juice and Soy Sauce Marinade

July 27th, 2013 in Fish, Main Dish Recipes by Julia Volhina

This is very easy way to cook salmon, you just need to put marinade together, pour it over salmon and then cook salmon together with marinade.

I used portion salmon fillets for this recipe (6oz each), but salmon steaks or a whole salmon fish will work here as well. For cooking whole fish increase marinating time for couple of hours or even do it overnight, and bake it instead of frying.

Fresh vegetables or boiled potato are good side dishes for salmon cooked this way.

Veal Rolls with Feta Cheese, Garlic and Olives

April 20th, 2013 in Beef, Main Dish Recipes by Julia Volhina

This recipe is not so budgety, prices for veal in US are somewhat high, but I like veal meat: it is lean and tender.

To reduce cost a bit, another part of veal can be substituted for scallopini here, pieces should be sliced thin, beef will do too but may need to be cooked longer to be tender.

Use any kind of white wine you like, it can be also served later with the course.
