Superbowl Chicken

4 Feb

As I am writing this blog-message, I am starting to recognize that lately I have been eating a lot of comfort food. Maybe I should feature some nice healthy recipes again.. But first! These amazing chicken wings covered in Parmesan cheese found online by my fidanzato. The taste is awesome, different and they are really easy to make, you don’t need to fry them! You just need the oven. Aside that this is more easy, it feels a bit more healthy too 😉

Ingredients

Chicken: 1,5 kg. of chicken wings, 3 liters of water, 3 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar, 1 tablespoon of time, oregano and rosemary, 1 leave of laurel, 2 tablespoons of salt. Marinade: 1,5 base of garlic, 2 teaspoons of fresh black pepper, 1 teaspoon of white pepper, a few flakes of pepperoncini, 2 tablespoons of olive oil, half hand of breadcrumbs, handful of grated Parmesan cheese.

Preparation

For this recipe you can take large or small chicken wings, however small chicken wings will taste a bit better I think, because they can be covered better by the marinade and seasoning. Take the 3 liters of water and add the seasoning written under ‘chicken’. Heat it until the water cooks and add the chicken wings. Wait again until the water temperature rises to boiling temperature and let the wings cook for 15 minutes. After they are cooked, let them dry on a dish for 15 minutes. They need to dry this long, because they need to be dry when you cover them with marinade.

Meanwhile, preheat the oven on 225 degrees and make the marinade with the garlic, black and white pepper, olive oil and flakes of pepperoncini (how many as you like). If the wings are dry, cover them with marinade. Then, add the breadcrumbs and cover the wings. After this, add the grated Parmesan cheese and cover the wings. Put the wings on the griddle and leave the skin part facing upwards. Add some extra Parmesan if you like and put them in the oven for 10-15 minutes. The wings need to become brown and crunchy. Buon appetito!

Chicken With Chickpeas

9 Okt

When you are stewing something and the pans are simmering on the fire, it feels like you are really cooking something! Especially on rainy Sundays in fall, a stew is something to make you feel good. However it is still 25 degrees in Rome, I had to try this Jamie Oliver recipe out with a new found love of mine, chickpeas!

Ingredients

4 medium chicken filets, a couple of basil leaves. Marinade: 4 toes of garlic, one handful of fresh parsley, the juice and grater of 1 lemon, salt and pepper, and tablespoon of olive oil (extra vierge). Chickpea stew: olive oil, onion , 4 toes of garlic, 1/2 teaspoon of (smoked) pepper powder, 1 jar of grilled peppers in olive oil (280 g.), 8 red and yellow tomatoes without seeds, 1 can of chickpeas (400 g.), white or red wine vinegar, 1 or 2 red peppers without seeds.

Preparation

Cook the garlic toes for about 8 minutes until they are soft. Put them in a bowl and mash them with a fork. Mix the garlic with the parsley, juice and grater of a lemon, salt and pepper and olive oil. Marinate the chicken with this mix and put it in the fridge for 2 hours. If you would like to use chicken legs and chicken filets, just as Jamie Oliver does, be sure to put the marinade between the meat and the skin of the chicken legs.

If you are ready, heat up the oven until 200 degrees. Take a large pan with some olive oil in it and let it simmer on medium fire. Put the onion, chopped garlic and pepper powder in the pan and let it on the fire for about 10 minutes until it is soft but not darkened. Then, put the grilled peppers with the olive oil from the jar in the pan, with the chopped tomatoes and the chickpeas together with some vinegar, chopped pepper, salt and pepper. Stir it a little and when the stew cooks, leave it on the fire for about 30 minutes.

Take the chicken filets and grill them in a grill pan for 10 minutes, until they are brown and tasteful. Put them in the oven until the stew is ready. Serve the chicken on the stew in a nice dish.
