My Own


You want a quick, easy and simple recipe for chicken meat? Here is one that I¬†make when I feel like and it is so tasty. It doesn’t need much labour and sweat in the kitchen, just a nice aroma floating in the house and outside. I recommend you close the doors and windows. ūüėČ So here it is:

Fried chicken breasts

Ingredients:

  • 2¬†skinless¬†chicken breasts, cut into 5-10 cm pieces
  • salt
  • pepper
  • white wine (optional)
  • butter (80-82% fat, unsalted preferably)
  • oregano (or any other spice you like, optional too)

Method:

  • Season the chicken with salt, pepper and spices.
  • Heat in a medium pan about 2 tbsp of butter and a little splash of wine. When it is sizzling, add the chicken, cook stirring until golden brown, 2-3 minutes on each side. Repeat the action until you finish all the pieces and don’t forget to add more butter and wine when it is finished in the pan, in the process.
  • Serve warm with boiled¬† or mashed potatoes with mint or any spice you prefer and a nice glass of white wine. I admit I don’t know much about wine so you can recommend me a special one that you think goes very well with this dish.

Bon appetite!

Puiul meu


De atatea¬†ori¬†am scris¬†retete¬†ale altora. Ma gandesc¬†sa scriu¬†si ceva¬†ce fac eu. Nu stiu¬†cat este, poate, o reteta¬†straina, stiu¬†doar¬†ca atunci¬†cand¬†vreau¬†sa mananc¬†piept¬†de pui, ma gandesc¬†sa il gatesc¬†asa, simplu¬†si repede. Ti-am spus¬†ca nu prea¬†imi¬†place sa stau¬†in bucatarie¬†si daca¬†tot stau, sa o fac cu placere. Si am o mare placere¬†sa gatesc¬†puiul¬†astfel. Ca side dish la acest¬†fel¬†de mancare¬†merge orice, dar cel mai¬†bine¬†se potriveste¬†piure-ul¬†sau¬†cartofii¬†fierti¬†cu unt¬†si verdeata¬†(menta¬†sau¬†patrunjel¬†si marar, sau¬†oregano, etc, dupa¬†cum iti¬†place). Sa iti¬†povestesc¬†cum prepar¬†eu carnea¬†de pui¬†si daca¬†pana¬†la sfarsit¬†nu ti se face pofta¬†si nu te repezi¬†la bucatarie¬†sa faci¬†si tu, inseamna¬†ca nu ai citit¬†cu atentie¬†;)… sau¬†nu iti¬†place puiul¬†in general. Ce imi¬†place mie¬†la aceasta¬†reteta, este¬†ca se poate¬†consuma¬†si rece. De multe¬†ori¬†mi s-a intamplat¬†sa revin¬†dupa¬†ce am mancat¬†si sa mai¬†fur bucati¬†din farfurie. Delicios. Sa nu uit¬†de mirosul¬†din bucatarie¬†cand¬†prajesc¬†puiul. Ador¬†sa il prepar¬†asa. O alternativa¬†simpla¬†si rapida. Si sa iti¬†mai¬†spun ceva. Daca¬†vrei, poti¬†face o salata¬†rapida, cu de toate¬†si la sfarsit¬†sa adaugi¬†si bucatile¬†fierbinti¬†de pui¬†si bingo! Tocmai¬†ti-ai facut un fel de salata¬†Cezar¬†proprie. ūüôā Uite¬†un secret: atunci¬†cand¬†prajesti¬†astfel¬†puiul, sa stii¬†ca pare mult mai¬†mult¬†si te saturi¬†mai¬†repede¬†tot mancand¬†bucatelele¬†decat¬†daca¬†ai avea¬†in fata¬†un intreg¬†piept¬†de pui¬†prajit. Asa ca daca¬†tii¬†cumva¬†si cura de slabire, ajuta.

Piept de pui la tigaie

Ingrediente:

  • 2 piepti¬†de pui¬†dezosati, fara¬†piele
  • sare
  • piper
  • oregano (sau¬†orice¬†alta¬†mirodenie¬†care iti place, optional)
  • unt¬†(80-82% grasime)
  • vin alb¬†(optional)

Preparare:

  • Taie¬†pieptii¬†de pui¬†in bucati¬†de cca¬†5-10 cm, asezoneaza-i¬†cu sare, piper si condimente. Condimentele¬†pot lipsi, sa stii¬†ca puiul¬†este¬†foarte¬†gustos¬†si fara, in cazul¬†in care il vrei¬†simplu.
  • Intr-o¬†tigaie¬†¬†pune¬†2 lingurite¬†de unt¬†din acela¬†gustos¬†sa se topeasca. Atunci¬†cand¬†untul¬†s-a topit¬†, adauga¬†si putin¬†vin alb (doar¬†daca¬†vrei, se poate¬†si fara¬†vin), apoi¬†lasa¬†sa se incinga¬†totul. Adauga¬†bucatile¬†de pui, pe rand.¬†In functie¬†de marimea¬†tigaii, vei¬†pune¬†de mai¬†multe¬†ori.¬†¬†Lasa-le¬†sa se rumeneasca¬†bine¬†cca¬†2-3 minute pe o parte si intoarce-le¬†si pe partea¬†cealalta¬†inca¬†2-3 minute. In acest¬†moment miroase¬†incantator¬†in bucatarie, aromele¬†de unt¬†si vin si carne prajita¬†te imbratiseaza¬†puternic. Dar mai¬†asteapta¬†putin. Continua pana¬†cand¬†termini tot puiul, adaugand¬†din cand¬†in cand¬†cate¬†o lingurita¬†de unt¬†si putin¬†vin, pentru¬†ca ele¬†se mai¬†termina¬†deoarece¬†patrund¬†in carne si nu vrei¬†ca tigaia¬†si¬†carnea¬†sa se arda.
  • Pune bucatile¬†de carne intr-un¬†bol cu capac, pe masura¬†ce se prajesc, ca sa raman¬†calde. La final, serveste-le¬†cum doresti. Eu stiu¬†ca ma servesc¬†dinainte¬†de a ma aseza¬†la masa, atat¬†sunt de gustoase. Dar nu mult, pentru¬†ca merg¬†foarte¬†bine¬†intr-o¬†farfurie¬†cu piure¬†si salata¬†si un pahar de vin alb.

Pofta buna!
