#Wwchickenrecipes #Italianchickenrecipes #Weightwatcherschickenscampi #Weightwatchersmealsdinner #Weightwatcherspasta #Italianchickenscampi #Crispychickenrecipes #Chinesefriedchicken #Cookingrecipes #Chinesefood #Yummyfood #Easychineserecipes



Ingredients

  • Fried chicken
  • 10 ounces boneless skinless chicken thighs cut into cubes
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1/3 cup cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • Honey garlic sauce
  • 1 tbsp canola oil
  • 3 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp ginger finely chopped
  • 5 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds optional
  • 1 tbsp green onions optional

Instructions

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the cubed chicken thighs, eggs, 2 tablespoons of cornstarch, and soy sauce. Mix well and set aside.
  2. To make the sauce, combine the soy sauce, water, honey, and brown sugar in a bowl and mix well. In a pan, heat the canola oil at medium high heat and cook ginger and garlic until fragrant and soft. Pour the soy sauce mixture and let cook by stirring occasionally. While the sauce is slowly cooking, mix cornstarch and water in a small bowl to make a slurry. Slowly add the cornstarch slurry into the pan while constantly stirring the pan. Cook over medium heat until sauce thickens. Add sesame oil and mix well.
  3. To make the fried chicken, whisk together the all-purpose flour and the rest of the cornstarch and add them into the bowl of prepared chicken. Combine well. Heat about 2 inches of frying oil at 375 degrees Fahrenheit and fry the chicken in batches. Fry for about 3 minutes and remove from oil. Place chicken on drying rack for about 5 minutes. Fry the chicken another time for another 2 minutes or until golden brown and crispy. Remove from oil and drain off excess oil.
  4. Add the fried chicken into the pan with the cooked sauce and mix well. Top with sesame seeds and green onions.

Creamy Honey Mustard Chicken With Crispy Bacon EDIT PAN




Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 3 level tablespoons whole grain mustard
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons minced garlic, (or 3-4 cloves crushed garlic)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt to season
  • 5 skinless and boneless chicken breasts (or chicken thighs)
  • 1/2 cup diced bacon, trimmed of rind and fat (I used 4 small bacon rashers)
  • 1/3 cup cream (light or reduced fat) *SEE NOTES FOR SUBSTITUTION OPTIONS
  • 1 cup milk (skim, 2% or full fat - almond milk may be used for a dairy free option)
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch (corn flour) mixed with 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley


Instructions

  1. In a large, shallow dish, combine the honey, mustard, garlic, oil and salt to taste (not too much salt if serving with bacon as the bacon will add a salty flavour when served). Coat chicken evenly in the sauce. Set aside.
  2. Heat a nonstick pan (or skillet) over medium heat. Fry bacon until crispy; transfer to a plate. To the same pan, sear chicken fillets on each side in the oil left over from the bacon until just beginning to brown (about 3 minutes per side -- not completely cooked through as we will finish them in the sauce).
  3. Add any remaining honey mustard sauce into the pan along with the cream and milk. Bring to a simmer while stirring occasionally to mix the favours through the sauce (about 3 minutes), until the chicken is cooked through. Transfer the chicken to a warm plate.
  4. Pour the cornstarch mixture into the centre of the pan, mixing it through the sauce until it thickens. Place chicken back into the pan; coat with the sauce. Top with the bacon and garnish with parsley.
  5. Serve over steamed / roasted vegetables for lower cal options. Also great with pasta, rice or mashed potatoes!

Homemade Baklava

#Baklavarecipegreek #Greekfoodrecipes #Greekrecipesauthentic #Baklavarecipepistachio #Baklavarecipetraditional #Baklavarecipeeasy #Turkishrecipes #Greekfoodrecipes #Greekrecipesauthentic #Mushroomsalad #Baklavarecipepistachio #Baklavarecipetraditional 



Ingredients

  • FOR THE SUGAR SYRUP:
  • 1 ¼ cups granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup water
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 3 large strips lemon zest removed in large strips with vegetable peeler
  • 1 medium cinnamon stick
  • 5 whole cloves
  • 1/8 teaspoon table salt
  • FOR THE NUT FILLING:
  • 8 ounces blanched slivered almonds
  • 4 ounces walnuts
  • 1 ¼ teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoons ground cloves
  • 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon table salt
  • EVERYTHING ELSE:
  • 1 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 1 pound frozen phyllo thawed

Instructions

  1. MAKE THE SUGAR SYRUP:
  2. Combine syrup ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a full boil over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally to ensure that sugar dissolves. Transfer to 2-cup measuring cup and set aside to cool while making and baking baklava; when syrup is cool, discard spices and lemon zest. (Cooled syrup can be refrigerated in an airtight container up to 4 days.)
  3. MAKE THE NUT FILLING:
  4. Pulse almonds in a food processor until very finely chopped, about twenty 1-second pulses; transfer to a medium bowl. Pulse walnuts in food processor until very finely chopped, about fifteen 1-second pulses; transfer to bowl with almonds and toss to combine. Measure out 1 tablespoon nuts and set aside for garnish. Add cinnamon, cloves, sugar, and salt; toss well to combine.
  5. ASSEMBLE:
  6. Brush 13 x 9-inch traditional (not nonstick) baking pan with butter. Adjust oven rack to lower-middle position and heat oven to 300 degrees. Unwrap and unfold phyllo on large cutting board; carefully smooth with hands to flatten. Using the baking pan as a guide, cut sheets crosswise with chef’s knife, yielding two roughly evenly sized stacks of phyllo (one may be narrower than other). Cover with plastic wrap, then damp kitchen towel to prevent drying.
  7. Place one phyllo sheet (from the wider stack) in bottom of baking pan and brush until completely coated with butter. Repeat with 7 more phyllo sheets (from the wider stack), brushing each with butter.
  8. Evenly distribute about 1 cup nuts over phyllo. Cover nuts with phyllo sheet (from the narrower stack) and dab with melted butter (phyllo will slip if butter is brushed on). Repeat with 5 more phyllo sheets (from the narrower stack), staggering sheets slightly if necessary to cover nuts, and brushing each with butter. Repeat layering with additional 1 cup nuts, 6 sheets phyllo, and remaining 1 cup nuts. Finish with 8 to 10 sheets phyllo (from the wider stack), using nicest and most intact sheets for uppermost layers and brushing each except final sheet with butter.
  9. Use palms of hands to compress layers, working from the center outward to press out any air pockets. Spoon 4 tablespoons of melted butter on the top layer and brush to cover all surfaces. Use a bread knife or any other serrated knife with a pointed tip in a gentle sawing motion to cut the baklava into diamonds, rotating the pan as necessary to complete the cuts. (Cut on the bias into eighths on both diagonals.)
  10. BAKE AND FINISH:
  11. Bake until golden and crisped, about 1.5 hours, rotating the baking pan halfway through baking. The top should be golden brown. Immediately after removing the baklava from the oven, pour cooled syrup over cut lines until about 2 tablespoons remain (syrup will sizzle when it hits hot pan); drizzle remaining syrup over the surface. Garnish center of each piece with a pinch of reserved ground nuts. Cool to room temperature on a wire rack, about 3 hours, then cover with foil and let stand at least 8 hours before serving. (Once cooled, baklava can be served, but flavor and texture improve if left to stand at least 8 hours. Baklava can be wrapped tightly in foil and kept at room temperature up to 10 days.)
