A bit ago I got two cat-sized zucchinis for free. The person who I got them from did ask if I even have any use for such large zucchinis, but I assured him that I am sure I’ll use them one way or another. I had no idea that cat-sized truly meant cat-sized – if not even bigger. Length almost half a meter and the thickest part 36 cm around. Even the smaller one of the two weighed over 2 kilograms. I have never before seen this big zucchini. Nonetheless, they were very firm and delicious. continue reading
Few weeks ago I published a recipe for tuna salad in my blog. Now in turn I made a quite similar salad from chicken. As I earlier said in the case of tuna salad, this kind of filling, easy-to-make and eaten cold salad fits very well together with warm summer days. Continue reading “Chicken salad”
It is easy to make a tasty meal from chicken and rice, whatever the method is to prepare it.
Chili pepper simmered with onion gives some extra kick for rice. Not very spicy, but enough to make it taste a bit different. And everyone can use as much chili as they want. Continue reading “Chili pilaf and chicken breasts”
With the keywords “sweet and spicy chicken” we ended up on a website called Taste of Home and this recipe. And of course we had to make it right away, because the whole family just loves hot and spicy food (nowadays I consider myself also a friend of it). Continue reading “Sweet and spicy chicken”
When you are very busy and you still should find time to make something to eat.
When it’s hard to figure, what to make for food just today.
When your budget is tight.
When you’re not in a mood to stand beside the stove, not even 30 minutes.
When you’re so hungry you can’t wait too long for food.
Then make this kind of chicken sauce – ready in the same time as the rice is cooked. Continue reading “Yellow chicken sauce”
I do not find anything wise to say about chicken at the moment. So much though, that surprisingly persistently in one’s mind has lived the idea that chicken has to be eaten with rice – not f. ex. with pasta or potatoes. Continue reading “Baked chicken and vegetables”
The differences between various sauces is usually very slight, but it can still be quite remarkable. Just adding or changing one or two ingredients means a lot for the final result. So, though I sometimes feel like I am repeating myself with all my pasta sauces, they are still different each in their own way. Continue reading “Pasta sauce with chicken and pork loin slices”
Chicken is the third most common bird in Finland. There is over 10 million broilers and layer hens in Finland. Most of them live in large commercial chicken houses, where there is very little space for each chicken, and definitely not much to do for them. They have to spend most of their lives without seeing daylight or having the opportunity to peck anything but maybe their fellow chickens. Continue reading “Sesame seed coated chicken wings and teriyaki sauce”
For many years, chicken legs has been a food that we’ve made whenever we have been short on money, or when we haven’t had any idea on what to cook, or when we wanted to have a nice dinner with minimal effort. Continue reading “Oven baked chicken legs”
I bought pomegranates just to take some photos of them. The photos have been taken and they are now waiting for a future project. But when that was done I had to find some other use for the fruits other than modeling for my pictures. Pomegranate seeds are well suited for all kinds of salads, but how about proper meals?
