Sunny’s Lemon Curry Chicken

sunnys-lemon-curry-chickenSuper delicious! I prepared the sauce as described. I used skinless chicken legs, and I coated them with egg and breadcrumbs (as we don’t corn flakes for breakfast) and I mixed the remaining egg with breadcrumbs and I pressed this over the legs. As a light crust was formed I turned the chicken and I brushed it with the sauce. It turned out crunchy and super tasty. Next time I will double the the sauce fir more liquid

Ingredients:

SAUCE MAY BE DOUBLED
1/2 cup sugar
4 tablespoons lemon juice
1 1/2 teaspoons curry powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 egg, beaten
1 cup corn flake crumbs
1 chicken (cut up) or 1 assorted chicken piece, your choice

Guacamole Cream & Olive Salsa

 

guacamole-cream-olive-salsa

This is a really great guacamole which I prepared two month ago and I forgot to report
I scaled the recipe down to one small black avocado and I used one green chili as well as frozen cilantro (I always have on hand in the freezer). I opted for green olives in brine. The red onion are great for this recipe as they are sweeter than the yellow one which I usually get.
It’s very easy to be preached and it even tastes better if you let it sit for a few hours in the fridge before serving! Thanks a lot for this recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 2 avocados (pitted)
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice (plus wedges for serving)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup green olives, chopped (pitted, may use mix of black & green olives)
  • 4 ounces red onions (chopped, 1/2 onion, approx 1 cup or use desired amt)
  • 1/2 jalapeño pepper (seeded & finely chopped)
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro (chopped)

Herbed Chicken Paillards

herbed-chicken-paillards-1

This is the kind of food I really enjoy very much!
The winter is approaching and I was lucky that I could find all the herbs (except the thyme) in my garden. The marjoram is drying and I will see this only next spring again, but I found some more protected sprigs which I could use.
The long marinating enhanced the herbs flavor and gave the dish the last warm rays of the season. Thanks a lot for this great recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh thyme
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons minced fresh rosemary
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons minced fresh sage
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
  • 3/4 teaspoon minced fresh marjoram
  • 3/4 teaspoon minced fresh savory
  • Ground allspice, 1 pinch
  • Ground red pepper, 1 pinch
  • 4 (1 1/3 pound) boneless skinless chicken breast halves
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • Garnish
  • Lemon wedges

Smoked Salmon and Avocado Sushi

Smoked-Salmon-and--Avocado-Sushi-1

How good and beautiful!

We all (8 of us) appreciated these very much and we enjoyed our Japanese dinner with these sushi rolls.

I loved the idea to use smoked salmon as this is naturally preserved and safe!  I could make 12 slices from each roll for a total of 48 bites!

Really a great recipe and a real keeper!

Ingredients:

  • 300 grams dry rice (sushi glutinous white rice, 1 1/2 cups dry)
  • 1/4 cup vinegar (rice or white wine vinegar)
  • 2 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 avocado, whole (large), skin and seed removed, thinly sliced
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 11 grams nori seaweed (4 sheets @ 2.75 gm each)
  • 80 grams smoked salmon (4 large slices)
  • Fresh chives (1 bunch)
  • Sweet soy sauce (kecap manis), to serve

Procedure:

  1. Wash the rice with enough water until the water comes out clear.
  2. Bring water and rice to boil. Let simmer covered until the water is adorbed (this takes about 12 minutes).
  3. In a small bowl combine vinegar ans sugar. Add this to the rice, stir, cover and let sit for about 15 minutes.
  4. Turn rice on a plate to cool completely down if you need to prepare the sushi soon. Make 4 portions.
  5. Prepare the avocado and drizzle with lemon or lime juice to prevent browning. Will make 4 portions!
  6. Cover your sushi mat with plastic foil, place the nori on it and spread the rice over the sheet (let one border free to close the roll). Place the salmon, chives and the first portion of avocado.
  7. Fold the bottom and roll it tightly using the mat helping yourself with the foil.
  8. Close the border with little flour and a few mashed rice corns (natural glue).
  9. I cut this without removing the foil making 12 sliced from each roll.
  10. Serve with soy sauce, wasabi paste and pickled ginger.
