Turkey Pie with Grated PotatoesDecember 29th, 2012 in Main Dishes, Turkey by Julia Volhina
It took me a bit of time to master this recipe: somehow I was either getting too much potatoes (honestly I have to get myself a cooking scale for Christmass) or potatoes I used were too juicy, so it was hard to get meat stuffing in the middle of the pie without sinking it into the batter.
Apparently this issue was easy to fix with draining redundant potato and onion juices using colander (ofc getting the right amount of potatoes helped a bit too).
Using of springform pan is convenient for this recipe however, if you don’t have one, any other baking pan of similar size will work fine.
Chicken Meat Roasted with Pineapple and BananasOctober 6th, 2012 in Chicken, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina
This easy yet very tasty chicken meat roast is perfect choice for romantic or family dinner.
If you buy pre-packaged boneless skinless chicken thighs (like me) all you need to do is to arrange them in baking pan, cover with layers of pineapple chunks, bananas slices, mayo and cheese, then stick pan to the oven.
Serve hot with mashed potatoes or rice.
Parmesan Chicken with Tomato Basil SauceAugust 25th, 2012 in Chicken, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina
Chicken fried in breadcrumbs and parmesan breading, baked with tomato basil sauce is a perfect dish for the romantic dinner with mediterranean hints in taste.
You can use canned tomatoes instead of fresh to save some time and possible money, but I believe sauce prepared with fresh tomatoes tastes a way better.
Breadcrumbs are also easy to make at home by drying and then crumbling in blender couple of slices of italian bread.
Chicken and Feta Stuffed Mushroom CapsJuly 21st, 2012 in Appetizers & Snacks, Chicken by Julia Volhina
I saw these gorgeous fresh mushrooms in the store, and it seemed they were asking to be stuffed – clean, big and even sized.
I decided to stuff them with creamy chicken and feta cheese mix dressed with sour cream and a bit of fresh parsley. If this sounds like a good idea to you, try this recipe.
And by the way, it can be served as an appetizer (especially if you use bite size mushroom caps), snack or even main course.
Chicken Lasagna with Spinach and Fresh CheeseFebruary 4th, 2012 in Chicken, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina
Don’t get scared by amount of ingredients: it isn’t that complicated to cook chicken lasagna with spinach and fresh cheese at home, especially if you have noodles which doesn’t require boiling.
Of course it will take some time too cook stuffing as well white sauce, but at the end you will get whole baking pan of tasty creamy lasagna.
I used fresh spinach, but frozen will work good too, just thaw it before cooking and drain liquid before mixing with cooked chicken. Tvorog (fresh cow cheese) can be replaced with ricotta of the same weight as well.
Serve lasagna 10-15 mins after you take it from the oven; leftovers can be stored in fridge and re-heated in microwave.

Cabbage and Chicken SaladJanuary 8th, 2011 in Salads by Julia Volhina
I love cabbage. It is available in the stores whole year, and it somehow manages to preserve such important nutrient as vitamin C (and some others) till late winter. This makes cabbage a good choice of food when your body particularly needs more vitamins.
I consider this a winter salad: cabbage is available any time in the store, as well as chicken and cheese; but it will also taste great when prepared from fresh young cabbage, which is much softer and more juicier.
Additionally, I usually season this salad with dry bread cubes right before serving. I prepare them myself from leftover bread: just dice it and dry in the oven (can’t call them croutons, as they don’t have any seasoning or oil added in the process of preparation). But I guess you can use croutons from the shop instead or skip this part all together.
