COOKING CHICKEN

MANGO AND CHICKEN STIR-FRY

Having mango as one of the important ingredients in a stir-fried dish gives it a very Filipino flavor.
I swears, there’s nothing like Philippine mangoes. While mangoes grow in other countries, they are never as sweet.
Years ago, a ripe sweet yellow mango was a summer treat. It is only during the summer months when they were abundant. They used to be a seasonal fruit. Today, they are grown all year round. More expensive during non-summer months though–the price doubles. And they are still sweetest during the summer. Luckily, the mango that went into my stir-fried dish was sweet.

YOU NEED…….

* breast of one chicken
* 1 tbsp. of finely minced garlic
* 1 thumb-sized piece of ginger
* 2 white onions
* some scallions
* 2 small carrots
* 1 red bell pepper
* 1 ripe mango
* 1/4 c. of light soy sauce
* 2 tbsps. of vegetable oil

HOW TO…….

—Debone the chicken breast (I use breast fillets). Cut into strips. Place in a bowl. Pour in the soy sauce and mix well. Set aside.

—Peel the ginger and slice thinly then cut into matchsticks, peel and chop the onions coarsely, peel the carrots, cut in half vertically then slice thinly. Core, seed and cut the bell pepper into wide strips.

—Cut the mangoes down the middle, avoiding the seed. Do the same with the other side. With a spoon, scoop out the meat of the mango in one piece. Do the same with the other half. Cut the meat into strips.

—Heat a wok or skillet. When hot, pour in the vegetable oil. Add to the hot oil onion, ginger, garlic, marinated chicken. Stir-fry over high heat for about 30 seconds. Cook, stirring for about two minutes. Add the carrots, bell pepper. Stir-fry for 3-4 minutes. Add the mango strips and toss a few times. Cook just until the mango strips are heated through. Serve at once, garnish with scallions on top.

 

CHICKEN-MANGOES IN YOGHURT

I will bluff just this time. Because it taste quite heavenly, the aroma…..cilantro (koriander), light sourness of the yoghurt was barely distinguished after mixing with the sweetness of the mangoes, and no sharp flavor. Smells good with cilantro (koriander) and lemon zest!
Another way of cooking chicken, this was only for a try if it fits with my family preferences, thanks God they love it.

YOU NEED…….

* 1 kg chicken (thighs and drumsticks)

The chicken pieces should be cooked slowly, over low heat for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. This might seem a lot, but it is what makes this dish so delicious. Homey, simple to prepare, and it makes you just want to mop up every drop of the sauce. Serve with bread, rice or pasta.

A hunter’s stew is a dish that can be prepared with minimal fuss. Some say that the really traditional cacciatore does not include tomatoes, uses dark meat only and the cooked dish is brown with a thick gravy-like sauce. We are PINOY so we enjoyed our chicken hunter’s stew for our lunch with rice.

CHICKEN IN SOUR CREAM WITH DILL

Aha, the magic of sour cream. And if that’s too sinful for you and you worry about clogged arteries, substitute yogurt and the result is just as good. This chicken in sour cream dish is so good that you’ll want to dip pieces of bread in the sauce until your plate is quite dry.

YOU NEED…….

YIELD: 4-6 SERVINGS
* 1 whole chicken
* 4 large potatoes, peeled and cut into wedges
* 2 carrots, peeled and cut into wedges
* 1 large white onion, peeled and cut into wedges
* 1 c. of sour cream or 250 g
* 1/2 c. of butter
* salt and pepper
* finely sliced or chopped dill

HOW TO…….

—Place the chicken in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper.

—Heat the butter in a large, wide cooking pan (I used a wok). When hot, add the chicken and fry over high heat until the edges start to brown. Don’t worry if the edges appear too brown at this point — the sour cream will take care of that so don’t sweat it unless you really burned them.

—Add the onion and continue frying until the edges of the chicken start to brown.

—Add the potatoes and carrots wedges. Fry for a minute longer.

—Pour in some water and cover, simmer for 30 minutes until chicken and potatoes are tender.

—Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with chopped dill, mix all together and pour in sour cream continue cooking for about 5 minutes.

—Serve with pasta or rice. We used to eat it with penne pasta!

Some tips:
This dish is best when cooked a day ahead. Everything is much tastier after reheating.
If sour cream is not available in the supermarket, make your own. Pour a cup of cream in a bowl and squeeze half a lemon over it. Let stand for 10 minutes before stirring and using.

 

CHICKEN AND POTATOES WITH CREAMY CHEESE SAUCE!

A simpler version of the baked creamy chicken and potatoes dish. I omitted the onion which can hasten spoiling, used heavy cream instead of skim milk and, instead of baking I simply cooked the dish on the stove top. During schooldays my 2 kids would be home for dinner every night and we would only get to sit down to dinner as a family during weekends. Beacause most of the time the dish I cooked for the lunch would be their dinner too. When they get home on weekdays around 5 until 6 pm (late afternoon).

YOU NEED…….

* 1 whole chicken, cut into serving portions
* 4 potatoes, peeled and cut into wedges
* 2 tbsps. of butter
* salt and pepper
* 1/2 c. of heavy cream or skim milk
* cheese (any kind), sliced, crumbled or grated ( I used American Toast Cheese)
* 3/4 cup of water or less

HOW TO…….

—Melt the butter in a frying pan. Cook the chicken until lightly browned, turning them over to brown both sides evenly. Add the potatoes and continue cooking until the edges of the potatoes are slightly browned as well. Season with salt and pepper. Pour in 3/4 cup of water and simmer for 20 to 25 minutes after which, most of the liquid should have evaporated.

—Pour in the heavy cream or milk and add the cheese. Cook over medium heat, uncovered, until the cheese melts.

—Stir the melted cheese into the sauce. Simmer for two minutes longer then turn off the heat. ENJOY!

 

“HALANG-HALANG” (chicken dish)

That “Halang-halang” literally translates to “anghang-anghang” spicy-spicy and chilis are an essential ingredient of the dish. There are many ways of cooking halang-halang, some with chunks of chicken or pork. Others serve it dry or as a soup. My mothers says, it depends upon the Region. Or if you are Bicolano, Ilocano, Visayan or in Tagalog Region!
So here I used chicken and “siling haba” the red ones!

Sounds a funny name, isn’t it? Halang has two meanings in the Filipino language. As an adjective, bent or twisted and a verb to block. It’s really spicy normally and beacause my family doesn’t dig of too spicy or too hot, I made it so mild as what they prefer…….but my family and I we love it!

YOU NEED…….

* 1 whole chicken
* 4 pcs. “siling haba” (red ones and mild hot)
* 1 onion, roughly cut into cubes
* 4 cloves crushed garlic, peeled
* 1 thumb-sized ginger, peeled and sliced
* a bunch of scallions
* 1-2 pcs. chayote or sayote (or more if you prefer more vegies)
* 1 can of coconut cream
* olive oil
* 3 tbsps. soy sauce
* “patis” (fish sauce)
* some mineral water, enough to cover the meat and vegetables!

HOW TO…….

—Cut the chicken into serving portion and season with soy sauce and set aside.

—Heat a pot or wok and add olive oil. Saute the onion, garlic and ginger until fragrant, then add the chicken until light brown both sides.

—Add the siling haba (red ones and mild hot) and pour in mineral water to cover and season with patis (fish sauce). Cover and bring to the boil, then turn down the heat and simmer for 30 minutes until chicken is tender.

— Add sayote, scallions and coconut cream. Cover again until sayote is done:wink:

—Serve the halang-halang hot with rice. This was our lunch today:wink:

CHICKEN-SUMMER VEGGIES with TOMATOE PASTE

Monday, start of the weekdays…school and work after weekend. Until now wala paring oras para mamalengke para sa mga bagong food stuff stock for the next whole week. Hubby had duty on weekend…me weekend is time for household works (washing clothes, kahit na ba sabihin mong washing mashine naman ang maglalaba kailangang ilagay at ilabas mo rin yon sa washing mashine…cleaning the house and that will be 3 bedrooms plus sala and kitchen, etc., etc., etc…) NOPE!

Kaya heto na naman ako maghahalungkat sa refrigerator at cupboards para sa bagong imbento nang mairaos ang pananghalian…lol…sounds like talagang naghihirap ha!
If you need to stretch your meat, cut them into smaller pieces. Add vegetables that go well with the meat and — voila! — you’ve doubled the amount of the cooked dish. It’s something I learned from my late nanay.

The summer vegetables which I used here are frozen ones which composed of leek, carrots, green peas, kholrabi (turnip cabbage), and the chicken are only few cuts left over from my hubby’s last cooking which he deep-freezed. Then I just added a broth cube (chicken) and tomatoe paste. Also a few cuts of potatoes. It looks like “afritada” or “caldereta”, but it’s not. I simply saute the whole stuff and added tomatoe paste at the end a little bit water, covered and cooked until the whole thing are cooked over medium heat. Voila! — resulta, ubos at nakatipid na naman ako :pump-;):
