Pasta with chicken breast and mushrooms

Ingredients

mushroompasta.jpg

  • 700 grams chicken breast, diced
  • 500 grams pasta of your choice
  • 2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 200- 250 grams baby portobello mushrooms, sliced
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 large green onions, chopped
  • 2 tsp salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tsp oregano
  • 2 tsp dried basil (one tsp of salt, pepper, oregano and basil used when frying the chicken meat and making the sauce)
  • 4-5 Tbsp. flour
  • 7-9dl milk depending on how much sauce you want, if you add 9dl add extra 1 tsp salt, pepper, oregano and basil
  • 50-70 grams shredded parmesan cheese
  • handful of fresh parsley, chopped, plus extra for garnish

Directions

  1. Add butter and one clove of garlic to a hot pan, add chicken meat and fry until fully cooked. Add salt, pepper, oregano and basil (1 tsp of each) to the meat. Tip: If you fry the meat on a higher heat after it is fully cooked, it will get crunchy edges which is really good for the end result.
  2. Cook pasta in salty water according to recipe or package directions. Make the sauce while the pasta cooks.
  3. In a large saucepan, heat olive oil over medium heat.
  4. Add mushrooms to oil and sauté until mushrooms have reduced in size, about 4 minutes. If the mushrooms soak up all the olive oil, add another teaspoon.
  5. Add garlic, green onions, salt and pepper to mushrooms and stir to combine. Cook until garlic is fragrant and mushrooms have released some additional liquid, about one minute.
  6. Add flour to saucepan and stir to incorporate all ingredients. Let cook for 30 seconds or so.
  7. Add 1dl of the milk and stir to break up any lumps of the mushroom and flour mixture. The milk will thicken fairly quickly; that’s okay. Add the milk little by little and stir to incorporate all ingredients.
  8. Bring sauce to a simmer and cook until milk has thickened, about 5 minutes.
  9. Add salt, pepper, oregano and basil (1 tsp of each, 2 tsp if you added a full 9dl of milk).
  10. Remove sauce from heat and stir in parmesan cheese. If you can, shred your own cheese – pre-shredded cheese has additives in it that make it more difficult for the cheese to melt smoothly. Stir in the chopped parsley.
  11. Garnish with extra parmesan and parsley and serve immediately.

Chicken wings/drumsticks

Ingredients

  • ~1.8kg Chicken wings and/or drumsticks
  • A handful of salt
  • Grill spice
  • Cumin
  • Butter
  • Side dish ingredients of your choice (potatoes or rice recommended)

Directions

  1. Prepare your side dish
  2. Preheat oven to 200°C
  3. Wash the chicken pieces with water and pluck any leftover feathers
  4. If you want sauce for your side dish, put the chicken pieces in a deeper pan(should be able to cover the pan with a top part), if not you can make them on baking paper and a shallow pan
  5. Salt the chicken a bit
  6. Add some grill spice or your favorite spice on the chicken. Also add some cumin
  7. Slice butter into small slices and put it on top of the chicken pieces
  8. If you're using a deep pan to get sauce, pour half a cup of water into the pan
  9. Bake at 200°C for about 45 minutes
  10. Take the top part of the pan off
  11. (If you're lazy just bake it for longer ignoring this part) Bake for about 8 minutes(using grill mode if your oven has it) to make the chicken golden. After 8 minutes turn the chicken parts the other way around and leave it in for another 8 minutes
  12. If you're using a deep pan to get sauce, after the pan has cooled down, pour about half of the leftover water/sauce from the pan onto your side dish

Pizza

This recipe is for 2 to 5 pizzas. Keep that in mind.

Ingredients - Dough

  • 0.4L water
  • 50g dry yeast
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons crystal sugar
  • 0.1L cooking oil
  • 550g fine flour

  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons crystal sugar

Ingredients - Second layer of the topping

  • Depends on what you want. Can be bacon, mushrooms, cheese,…..
  • 500g of cheese

Directions - Dough

  1. Mix dry ingredients first. Not yeast, YEAST GOES IN AT STEP 4.
  2. Add water to the mix, stir.
  3. Add oil to the mix and stir until well combined.
  4. If the dough is a little too wet, add more flour. After both wet and dry ingredients are added, add yeast. Break the yeast apart in small pieces and knead it into the dough.
  5. After the mixture is ready, leave the dough in the bowl and put the bowl in the oven to rise (with appropriate oven mode), or if you don't have a fancy oven, leave the bowl on a counter with a kitchen towel on top, keeping the air inside. Let it rise until it's about twice the size.

Directions - Base Topping

  1. Add all dry ingredients first, and mix them up.
  2. Add one wet ingredient at a time, mix after each ingredient is added.
  3. The topping should be ready to use right after preparing it.
  4. Roll out the dough on a baking paper (keep in mind it will rise to twice the size in the oven).
  5. Smear the topping over the dough. You can either smear it all over or you can leave a little space all around the sides and you can fold the edges, which gives you a nice, crunchy crust.
  6. Add the rest of the topping ingredients to the pizza.
  7. Bake at 240°C for 7-15 minutes, depending on the thickness of the dough.

Side dishes

Rice

Potatoes

  • 3-4 tablespoons cooking(sunflower) oil
  • 3-4 teaspoons herb spices

1. Preheat the oven to 225C.

  1. Wash the potatoes. Peeling the potatoes is a matter of preference, but they might become mushy and not so crispy if you peel them.
