A lovely and very easy chicken dish

Post  EarthsAngel on Sun Feb 07, 2010 7:02 am

Ingredients:

I pkt of crackers (I used the flavoured ones....caraway and cayenne pepper)
2 cups grated cheese
Bunch spring onions (chopped fine)
1 cup melted butter
salt and pepper
6 chicken breasts (fillets)
3 onions
4 carrots grated
I pint of white sauce
1 tsp thyme
i tsp minced garlic
2 cups chicken stock

Method:

Put crackers into a food processor and whiz until fine, mix with grated cheese and chopped spring onion. Mix with melted butter and line the bottom of ramekin dishes, press down with knuckles and put in the fridge to set firm.

Cook onions until soft and translucent, add grated carrots, then add chopped chicken, cook for about 20 mins. Add stock, garlic and thyme. Allow to cook for a further 20 mins then add the white sauce.

Spoon the chicken mixture into the ramekins and top with remaining cracker and cheese mix. Bake at 180c for 15 mins or until golden brown.

I often make a large batch and freeze before baking, very handy when you don't feel like cooking.

Method:

Boil potatoes until soft, mash them when done, add cheddar cheese, a little butter, salt and pepper. Put aside.

Cook leeks gently in butter until soft (10 Min's) add 2 TBLS flour and cook gently for a few Min's, slowly add milk to make a thickish sauce. Simmer for 5 Min's.

Cut fish into bite size pieces.Put fish in an oven proof baking dish, sprinkle with salt, pepper and lemon juice. (fish spice if you have it)leave for a few minuets to absorb seasoning. mix sauce mixture with the fish, allow to cool, when cool put mashed cheesy potatoes on top, smooth and then run a fork over the potatoes to make a pattern, add some grated cheese on top and cook for 30 Min's @180c. Serve with veg of your choice.

2 onions, chopped
6 leeks, washed and sliced
250 gram smokey bacon
Approx. 6 large potatoes
1 litre chicken stock
Approx 1 litre milk

Gently cook onion and leeks in a little butter, when soft add potatoes (cut into little blocks) cook for about 20 Min's then added chopped bacon, cook for a further 10 Min's. Add chicken stock and simmer for an hour, allow the stock to reduce.

French Onion Soup

Post  EarthsAngel on Wed Feb 10, 2010 1:00 am

Ingredients
8 onions, sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/3 cup butter
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
8 cups beef stock (Oxo is best)
1/2 cup Brandy
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1 bay leaf
Salt and pepper
1 loaf French bread
2 cups grated Gruyere

Directions
Saute onions and garlic in butter over low heat until tender and golden yellow. Sprinkle flour over onions, cook a few minutes more, browning the flour well. Add stock and brandy and bring to a boil, add thyme and bay leaf. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer gently for 20 minutes or so. Add salt and pepper, to taste.

Meanwhile, slice French bread into 3/4-inch slices and butter both sides. Toast slices on grill until golden brown. Ladle soup into an ovenproof bowl, add toasted bread and cover with cheese. Place ovenproof bowl on a baking sheet lined with tin foil. Bake at 350 degrees F or 5 minutes under a hot grill.

This soup tastes much better if made a day or two in advance.

Guinness Beef Stew Recipe

Post  EarthsAngel on Wed Feb 10, 2010 1:37 am

Ingredients:

1 tablespoon of olive oil
1 tablespoon of butter
1 kg / 2 lbs of beef rump steak
2 large carrots
12 red shallots or small pickling onions
4 cloves of garlic
¼ cup of flour
1 tablespoon of tomato paste
2 cups of good Irish Guinness
1 cup of beef stock
1 bouquet garni or 2 bay leaves
freshly milled black pepper
1 tablespoon brown sugar
½ cup of chopped prunes (optional)
freshly chopped parsley
salt to taste
Peel the carrots and slice them thickly. Peel the 12 shallots and garlic cloves, crush the garlic and prepare a bouquet garni. Trim the steak and cut into small 2 cm / ½ inch cubes. Heat the oil and butter in a large saucepan, add the shallots and carrots, sauté until slightly brown on all sides and transfer to a dish. In the same saucepan brown the meat, adding the garlic once the meat is nicely browned on all sides. Add the tomato paste and flour to the saucepan and stir through. Cook on a low heat for around ½ a minute, being careful not to burn the flour. Slowly stir in the beef stock and Guinness, a little at a time. The stew will thicken as you do this. Add the bouquet garni and bring the stew to the boil. Return the onions and carrots to the saucepan and simmer for 1 hour, stirring occasionally to prevent any catching. Chop the prunes in half and add them to the stew. Continue to simmer for 15 to 20 minutes until the meat is tender and the carrots are cooked. Remove and discard the bouquet garni, add salt and freshly milled black pepper to taste and sprinkle with some fresh parsley. Serve with fresh crusty bread or accompanied with seasonal vegetables and a good mound of Colcannon.

(Serves 4 to 6)

Chicken Casserole Recipe

Post  EarthsAngel on Wed Feb 10, 2010 1:43 am

Ingredients:

1.5 kg / 3½ lb of chicken pieces (drums and thighs)
4 tablespoons of flour
salt and pepper
1 tablespoon of mustard powder
30 grams / 1 oz of butter
1 tablespoon of olive oil
2 cups of good quality white wine or chicken stock
1 cup of water
12 small pickling onions
12 baby potatoes
2 to 3 full size carrots or 12 small baby carrots
150 grams / 5 oz button mushrooms
150 grams / 5 oz of young green beans
4 to 6 cloves of garlic
4 bay leaves
2 teaspoons of dried tarragon or a few fresh sprigs
½ cup of cream
1 teaspoon of cornflour

Method:

It is important to use quality wine or stock in this recipe as using inferior ingredients will detract from the flavour of the casserole. Preheat the oven to 160°C, 320°F or gas mark 3. Combine the flour, some salt and pepper and the mustard powder in a clean plastic bag. Shake the chicken pieces in the bag to coat, remove from the bag and shake off any excess. Heat the oil and butter in a large heavy based saucepan or frying pan. Add the coated chicken pieces and sauté, turning occasionally until golden on all sides. Be careful not to burn the chicken. Remove the chicken pieces and set aside. In the same pan heat the water and wine or stock until boiling rapidly. Reduce slightly and remove from the heat. Peel the onions, potatoes and carrots. If using large carrots, cut into sections around the same size as the baby potatoes. Peel and crush the garlic and rinse the mushrooms and beans. Do not peel the mushrooms as most of their flavour will be lost in the peelings.

Select a large casserole dish with a tight fitting lid or line a poorly fitting lid with foil, shiny side in. This helps to retain moisture and heat. Layer the chicken pieces and vegetables (excluding the beans), bay leaves and crushed garlic in the casserole. Sprinkle over the tarragon and some more salt and pepper. Pour over the heated liquid and cover. Bake for 1 hour. Mix the cream with the cornflour and stir through the chicken, also adding the beans. Continue baking for another 30 minutes or so until the chicken and vegetables are very tender and the sauce has thickened.

(Serves 4 to 6)

A really tasty stew ideally served with rice and fresh crusty bread.

2 teaspoons of cooking oil
750 grams / 26 oz of beef stewing steak
2 large onions, or several small pickling onions
1 clove of garlic crushed
1 carrot
2 tablespoons of flour
250 gram / 9 oz tin of peeled tomatoes, or several fresh tomatoes
¾ cup of red wine
1 cup of beef stock
1 tablespoon of tomato paste
A dash of tabasco sauce
2 teaspoons of soy sauce
1 bay leaf
125 grams / 4½ oz of button mushrooms (optional)
1 green pepper

Method:

Trim and chop the stewing steak into small cubes. Chop each onion into 8 wedges or peel the small pickling onions and leave whole. Peel and slice the carrot into rounds. Chop the green pepper into chunks and the mushrooms into quarters if they are large, otherwise leave them whole. Heat the oil in a large saucepan and sauté the meat, stirring frequently until brown on all sides. Add the onions, garlic and carrot to the saucepan and sweat (cook without browning). Add the flour and stir through to cover the vegetables and meat. Stir in the tomatoes, wine, stock, tomato sauce, Tabasco sauce, soy sauce and bay leaf. Mix thoroughly and bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 1½ hours until the meat is tender. Add the green pepper and mushrooms and simmer for another 10 to 15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

This recipe can also be made in a pressure cooker: follow the recipe and pressure cook for ¾ of a hour. Add the mushrooms and capsicum towards the end and simmer with the lid off for 10 to 15 minutes.

(Serves 6)

Beef and Potato Stew

Post  EarthsAngel on Thu Feb 11, 2010 11:45 pm

Dolly, will post some nice slow cooker recipe for you x These can be cooked in the oven or on the hob, but slow cooker is best.

INGREDIENTS
2 lbs. stew beef
1/4 c. flour
1 tsp. paprika
4 lg. carrots
3 lg. potatoes
1 c. condensed beef broth
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/3 c. soy sauce
1 lg. onion
1 can tomato sauce (8 oz.)

DIRECTIONS
Layer potatoes, then carrots. Top with meat; sprinkle meat with soy sauce, salt, paprika, pepper & flour. Spread with chopped onions. Combine beef broth & tomato sauce & pour overall. Cover & cook on low 7 - 8 hrs. or high 4 - 5 hrs. NOTES: Instead of sprinkling the meat with soy sauce, salt, paprika, pepper & flour as the recipes says, I mix those all together in a small bowl. This prevents the flour from becoming clumpy. I add about 1/4 cup barbecue sauce to the top, before putting the cover on. I use whatever variety of sauce that I have on hand. I don't usually buy the "regular" flavor of any brand, but instead have hickory, brown sugar or garlic and onion flavors. The BBQ sauce adds an extra "kick" to the meat and gravy. For the beef broth, since I don't usually keep that on hand, I dissolve 2 beef (OxO) cube into 1 cup boiling water.
