How to make juicy baked chicken breasts

1. Chicken curry meatball recipe

meatloaf-chicken-curry

When we buy the breasts, we ask the butcher to chop them for us in the machine. In a deep plate, mix the chicken with the breadcrumbs, the egg and a tablespoon of curry powder. With a fork we mix well. Besides, soak the breadcrumbs with a good drizzle of coconut milk saving the rest for later. When the crumb is very moist, add it to the minced chicken meat and mix well.

We carefully form balls and pass them through flour. We fry them in extra virgin olive oil and leave them in a low-walled casserole. In the same oil where we have fried the meatballs, we poach the very chopped onion with the carrot that we will also have cut into small pieces.

While they are being done, we cut the lemmongrass in detail until we get almost a paste. Add the green pepper and the lemmongrass, letting it cook for a few minutes. Add the other tablespoon of curry powder and the raisins, followed by a glass of chicken broth.

Once it reaches a boil, add the rest of the coconut milk and let cook the whole for 20 minutes until the meatballs are very tender. We taste and rectify the salt and serve hot.

  • Ingredients: 1 rack of pork (700g), 50ml of oil, 50g of honey, 2 tablespoons of curry, 1 lemon, salt and pepper
  • Elaboration: We start by separating the ribs from the rack. Then we season the ribs and brown them in the pressure cooker with a little oil. On the other hand, we prepare the sauce by mixing the oil, honey, curry and lemon juice. When the ribs have browned, add the curry sauce, add a splash of water (about 50ml), stir well and close the pot at maximum power. From the moment it starts to whistle and we lower the heat, we count five minutes and we have our ribs ready.

3. Chicken wings curry

1366 2000 3
  • Ingredients: 6 Chicken wings, Sunflower oil, Ground curry, Onion, Red pepper, Provencal herbs
  • Elaboration: To make this appetizer, I have calculated three servings per person. As from each wing we get two, with six wings it will be enough for 12 portions that we get for 4 people. Our first task, -if the pollero has not done it to us- will be to divide each wing into the two fleshy pieces. Once we have the twelve portions, we prepare the marinade by mixing the oil with the curry in a bowl. On the other hand we crush a piece of red pepper and half an onion so that they are hardly noticeable and once mixed, we add a tablespoon of the vegetable mixture to the bowl. We stir well and when the marinade has a fine texture, we put the wings and stir them until they are well smeared, leaving them in the fridge until we are going to cook them, better from one day to the next. In a dish suitable for the oven, distribute the wings and bake them at 190º C for an hour, turning every 15 minutes so that they are done evenly and varnishing with more marinade if necessary. They have to be well toasted, almost crunchy.

4. Chicken curry burgers

1366 2000
  • Ingredients: For hamburgers, 2-3 chicken breasts (600 gr approximately), 2 tablespoons of curry powder, 1 tablespoon of old mustard, 1 tablespoon of heavy cream, a pinch of salt, In addition, lettuce, arugula, tomato and hamburger buns
  • Elaboration: We start by mincing the meat with a knife. First we make some strips with the chicken breasts and then we cut them perpendicular so that everything is very small. We take the opportunity to clean of fats and webs so that it is a very clean meat in cubes. In a bowl we mix the minced chicken meat with the curry and mustard, being generous with the spices. Then we add a little liquid cream and stir until all the ingredients are well integrated. If necessary we add a little more cream, but avoiding that the mixture is liquid since we are looking for a dough that is compact. As these hamburgers could not be formed by hand without soaking ourselves a lot, we put a little extra virgin olive oil in the pan or grill and on it we put the round plate to plate and inside it we form the hamburger by adding 4 tablespoons of our dough. With the fire on, squash a little to form and wait a minute before removing the ring and repeat the operation to form all the hamburgers. They should be high, approximately 1.5 cm so that they can be turned over easily afterwards and do not break. After 3 minutes on one side, we do the other for another 2 minutes and they will be ready to serve. It is not advisable to put melted cheese or other typical complements of traditional hamburgers to appreciate the flavor of the curry. With a few slices of tomato and some lettuce or arugula leaves will be enough.

This will make it easier for them to get crispy when grilling later. We booked. Meanwhile, we prepare the spiced oil to roast the potatoes, mixing the ingredients with the olive oil. In the oven preheated to 200ºC, we place a dish without anything, for 3 minutes. Using oven mitts, we take out the source and pour the oil and spices mixture into it. Immediately, add the potatoes, stirring well so that all the potatoes are impregnated. We now add our homemade curry powders, mix and return the source to the oven, where we will roast the potatoes for about 20 minutes, until they are well done.
