I love chicken! I probably eat some three times a week.
Not only is it to cook, but recipes are illimited.
Just found the following recipe in an old cookbook of mine:
Mint & Orange Peels Chicken!
INGREDIENTS: For 4=5 people
-Chicken: 1 whole
-Butter: 100 g
-Onions: 2 large/finely chopped
-Chicken stock: 400 ml
-Chiselled (thinly cut) mint leaves: a quarter of a cup/50 ml
-Chopped coriander: a quarter of a cup/50 ml
-Chopped parsley and ciboulette (very thin leeks): 2 large tablespoons
-Orange juice: 2 oranges freshly pressed
-Grated orange skin (peel): 2 above
-Crushed walnuts: 50 g
-Salt & pepper: to taste
-In a large thick pan (le Creuset style), drop 50 g of butter and cook onions on a strong fire until they become translucent. Lower fir to medium. Add chicken stock. Add salt and pepper. Put the chicken inside the pan. Cover with lid. Simmer for an hour.
-In a frypan, on a low fire, drop the other 50 g of butter and cook gently all herbs and half of the chiselled mint.
-Pour onto the chicken with the orange juice, grated orange skin and crushed walnuts. Let simmer again for 30 minutes.
-Cut the chicken and serve hot decoarated with the other half of chiselled mint.
Best savoured with plain steamed rice or butter rice!
