Strange Eats: Recipe: Summer in Winter Chicken

in #food3 years ago

This isn't the most pretty dish I've made so far but I guarantee that it still tastes amazing! This is a dish I made a long time ago successfully. So, I wanted to recapture that dish. However, I wanted to make it extra rich so I threw in a bunch of extra cheese and called it a day.

The idea behind this dish is that it is meant to heat you up on a cooling day. It was a bit redundant to have that purpose in a tropical country but I guess it is the thought that counts.

Ingredients

  • 2 Chicken Breast
  • 2 Chicken Thigh
  • 3 tbsp Pesto (Pine Nuts, Basil, Parmesan, Garlic, Olive Oil. Blended together)
  • 2 tbsp Mascarpone
  • A sprinkle of Mozarella Cheese
  • 3 tbsp of Creme Fraiche
  • Butter/Olive Oil
  • 200g Cherry Tomatoes
  • Basil Leaves

Instructions

  1. Heat the olive oil/butter in a large pan. Marinate your chicken with salt and pepper. Halve your cherry tomatoes.
  2. Place your chicken in the pan and cook thoroughly. This should take 10-15 minutes for each side depending on how cooked you like your chicken. To test how cooked your chicken is, make a small incision where the meat is at its deepest. White means it is cooked, pink or red means it is not cooked yet. You wouldn't want to overcook it as the texture would be terrible and you wouldn't want to undercook it because... salmonella.
  3. Throw in the cherry tomatoes and stir. Let it cook until softened.
  4. Reduce the heat. Add the pesto, mascarpone, creme fraiche and mozzarella. Stir until it becomes a sauce.
  5. Sprinkle in some basil leaves and stir.
  6. Serve with rice, garlic bread or mashed potatoes.

Amazing dish there and I have all the ingredients!! well except Mascarpone

I would like to suggest that you check out this person and see how she writes her recipes @thegalavantgirl

Thanks for swinging by! You don't have to put mascarpone :) I will look into her recipes!

This looks delicious. I might have to try to make it for my wife sometime. I think I would add garlic and onions to it though. We put those two things in everything. Thanks for sharing this great recipe.

The pesto already contains garlic so be sure not to accidentally overdose!

Good point. I hadn't thought about that. 😀

The food that doesn't look good, but tastes great is the best, at least you are sure no-one will steal it from you ;)

Chicken cooked in this way is so juicy, tender and flavourful, well infused with pesto and cheese.

That looks fine, I like this dish to be full of sauce, so I can have a big scoop of sauce, pour it over a big bowl of rice and down it, pronto :-)

I learnt a while ago to chose the taste over the look when it came to food. I have had some amazing dishes that did not look appealing but the taste was fabulous. Thank you for sharing the recipe!
