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.

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? Continue reading “Chicken with pomegranate”
As I already mentioned in my previous post about grilling, the weather has been a blessing in the sense that it has been possible to enjoy our meals in the shade of a huge maple tree. Although I can not help feeling pity for my garden drying up in spite of all the watering and for the raspberry bushes being full of unripe small berries, which are in danger of withering. Continue reading “Broiler thin cutlets and halloumi slices wrapped in zucchini”
Instead of chicken rolls, we decided to do turkey rolls for a change. Thin turkey cutlets are noticeably bigger than their chicken cousins, so the rolls are easier to make, not to mention that I find turkey meat a bit tastier than chicken. Continue reading “Turkey rolls filled with boletes and cream cheese”
When you send the man of the house to do some shopping on his own without any special requests, just a friendly take whatever you feel like, you can be sure that there will be smooth pork sausages, a sausage bent on a form of oval, minced meat and chicken breasts, in his basket. Continue reading “Chicken fillets in cream sauce with fennels and zucchini”
A very tasty and somewhat different delicacy to serve with rice or couscous. Orange, honey and melon bring some nice sweetness, which chili and ginger challenge with their strong flavors. Continue reading “Chicken breast in melon and orange sauce”
