Chicken with apples and mushrooms

Chicken with apples and mushrooms

I marinated the chicken legs a little in soy sauce, nutmeg, curry and hot peppers. I peeled the apples and cut them into small, uneven pieces, then I put them in a pan with hot olive oil and I left them on the fire for a few minutes, I added black sesame seeds and the mushrooms cut into pieces the right size and I let them soften a little.

After the legs were marinated for about half an hour, I took them out and put them in a pan with hot oil and left them until they were browned on both sides, then I moved them in a pan with apples, mushrooms and finely chopped garlic and put them in the oven for 30 minutes.

I cut the carrots into strips and hardened them in a pan with 2 cloves of garlic, then I added over them the Chinese noodles previously cooked according to the instructions on the package.

I served the noodles with carrot slices together with the apple legs and mushrooms in the oven. A goodness!

Great appetite!

Chicken breast with mushrooms and Gorgonzola sauce

I just prepared some last week pui Gorgonzola, according to a simple and quick recipe, very similar to the recipe for chicken with cream. a pui Gorgonzola it never resembles another Gorgonzola chicken, the variations on the theme being innumerable. Here are some samples of Gorgonzola chicken seen, eaten and paid for in the last 12 months.

Each restaurant has its own version more than that, in the same place you can receive different variants of the dish, depending on which team is in the kitchen.

For Gorgonzola chicken, the starting point is the same: chicken breast and Gorgonzola sauce. The chest can be sliced, striped or cubed (the last two terms did not exist until now - I invented them ad-hoc), then you can brown on the grill or pull in the pan, marinated or not beforehand. The sauce should contain two basic ingredients: Gorgonzola cheese and unfermented liquid cream. But more important is what NOT it should contain: flour, food starch, vegetable “cream”, ingredients that you may have, without knowing, in the plate, for reasons of “optimization” of costs. Especially if the price per serving is dubiously low. Although Gorgonzola cheese has a special flavor, if you are not a cheese fan you can be easily misled (and not "misled" as I hear more and more often) with a cheaper surrogate. Especially since Gorgonzola is a protected designation of origin (PDO) product.

Also in order to optimize costs, although you ordered "chicken with Gorgonzola sauce" you may find that you have "Gorgonzola sauce with chicken" on your plate.

The introduction being made, here is a variant of pui Gorgonzola, I think one of the first I did. The quantities are for about four servings. For other Gorgonzola chicken options, click here.

What do you need?

  • 2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts (approx. 600 - 700 g)
  • 500 g mushroom mushrooms
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil.
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric (turmeric)
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground mosaic pepper.
  • 20 - 30 g butter (82% fat)
  • 150 g spicy Gorgonzola cheese
  • A handful of walnut kernels (previously fried without oil, in a pan or in the oven, then crushed, not ground)
  • 150 - 200 mL liquid cream, unfermented, with at least 30% fat,
  • ½ connection of green dill.

How do you proceed?

The chicken, well wiped with absorbent napkins (removes excess water), is cut into cubes with dimensions as close as possible, ideally the pieces should be about 1.5 - 2 cm wide. The length and height of the pieces, as well as the angle between the edges result from the definition of the cube.

Put the chicken cubes in a bowl, add the soy sauce, turmeric and pepper over them, then massage them well. Do not add salt. It is enough in soy sauce, and Gorgonzola also comes with the corresponding salt. Cover the pot and let it cool for at least 45 minutes. If you can leave it in the fridge overnight it's even better.

When you think the chicken breast has marinated enough, heat the olive oil in a high pan (or in a wok) and fry the meat over medium to high heat, turning it on all sides, until it browns properly.

Remove the browned meat and set it aside, and in the same pan and in the same oil, sauté the cleaned and thinly sliced ​​mushrooms (you don't have to wash them, just wipe them off the floor or other impurities if you wash them, they only absorb more water that you will have to remove from the basement, thus contributing to global warming).

In about 10 to 12 minutes, your mushrooms should get rid of the built-in water, possibly even browning a little.

While the mushrooms are sautéing, you have time to bury them Gorgonzola sauce. For this purpose, melt the butter over a low flame, then add the Gorgonzola cheese cut into cubes (not too big, so that it melts quickly). Stir vigorously, and when the cheese has melted, add the roasted and crushed walnuts, followed by the cream.

Bring to the boil, then add the dill. If you do not have a special scissors for greens, chop it in the classic way, with a knife, taking care of your fingers.

Over the sautéed mushrooms, put the chicken breast pieces back in the pan, add the Gorgonzola sauce and mix. You can stop here.

If you want to kiss and something next to it, ie a garnish, it is allowed. I found some ready-made potato croquettes (Lidl - French week), which I just had to throw in the fryer with hot oil at 180 ˚C, to wait until they rise to the surface (sign that they are fit for consumption drain) of the excess oil and add to the plate next to the pieces of chicken and mushrooms drowned in the cheese and cream sauce. In addition to the above combination, a glass of dry white wine (Riesling Italian & # 8211 Cramele Recaș), semi-dry white (Fetească Regală & # 8211 also from Recaș), or even rosé (Caloian de Oprișor) could go well. . The idea is to decide only for one of the exposed options.

Chicken with leeks and mushrooms & # 8211 recipe for the most delicious chicken legs with creamy mushroom and leek sauce & # 8211 is easy and quick to prepare, with simple ingredients, at anyone's fingertips.

Stir-fried chicken legs, accompanied by a delicious and creamy sauce, they can be perfect for family lunch, but also for dinner.

Fried chicken legs in the pan have a red crust, but the meat is tender and very tasty. Probably everyone knows how to make a chicken steak recipe, but when it comes with a sauce, the steak is much tastier and will be enjoyed with greater pleasure. Usually next to the meat we have the garnish. Most of the time, it is worse than potatoes or baked potatoes, but there are also situations in which we can eat it only with sauce, with a polenta.

I think of chicken ciulama, a recipe for chicken with creamy cream sauce and flour. This recipe could be accompanied by a garnish of mashed potatoes, but it would also go with pasta, rice or plain. This recipe brings a little with chicken recipe with mushrooms and sour cream, but leeks give it a special flavor.

If you want to be inspired and prepare other chicken recipes, I invite you to see my collection up close. 100 chicken recipes.

For this chicken and leek and mushroom recipe I do not recommend using chicken breast. The meat is smooth and dry. Even with sauce it remains a meat without personality.

As for the chicken legs, I chose legs in which I have meat with bone. These are better. The bone helps to cook inside, by transferring heat, it tastes good, so do not avoid this type of meat. The crust given by the skin on the thighs is crispier if you fry the chicken in a pan, so I choose this quick and very tasty method of preparation. You can use only the upper part of the thighs or only the lower part, whole or cut thighs (as I choose to use).

The cream I used to prepare chicken with leek sauce and mushrooms it is sour cream for cooking. I use fatty cream. Chicken soup is homemade soup, not cubes. You can keep the soup in the freezer for such recipes.

My chicken recipe with creamy leek sauce with mushrooms it was to my liking. I did it last week and I didn't get to take pictures of it. When I told them I forgot to take pictures of the stages, they were very nice and asked me if I didn't want to redo the recipe the next day. They told me that they like it so much that they wanted to be sure that I would redo the recipe even if I had pictures. I didn't have leeks in the house, so today I went shopping and the first thing that came to the basket was the leeks & # 8211 a small and thin one.

I now leave the list of ingredients and how to prepare for chicken with leeks and mushrooms presented step by step below.


3 whole chicken legs cut in half
300 g leek & # 8211 leafless part
250 g fresh mushrooms
4 tablespoons oil
1 tablespoon flour
200 ml of clear chicken soup
150 ml fat cooking cream
200 ml of milk
1/2 bunch of parsley
2 strands of fresh tarragon - optional
2 tablespoons brandy

For the beginning, I hardened the chicken in the well-heated oil until it browned nicely on both sides. I hardened the mushrooms cleaned very well with a special brush, then put them under a stream of water (not much because they absorb water). I cut the mushrooms into thin slices and put them in the pan next to the chicken. The water left by them also helps to cook the chicken.

When they were cooked, I quenched them with brandy (if you don't have brandy, use mulled wine or rum) and added sliced ​​leeks. I fried everything for 5 minutes, over medium heat.

I poured the soup, sour cream and milk in which I dissolved the flour beforehand and boiled it for 5 minutes, on low heat, with a lid, then I took the lid and continued cooking without the lid, stirring more often in the pan. , so that the composition does not stick to the pan.

When I finished cooking I turned off the heat and added the finely chopped greens.

I put the chicken legs with leek sauce and mushrooms on the plates and ate immediately with polenta, but you can choose to accompany the steak with sauce with a mashed potato, rice or pasta.

  • The preparation is consumed hot or warm.
  • It is recommended for lunch or dinner.
  • You can use chicken breast or wings instead of thighs.
  • Greens are optional. You can use dill if you like.
  • Depending on your tastes you can increase or decrease the quantities. You can use 350 g of leeks instead of 250 g and 150 g of mushrooms instead of 250 g.
  • The oil used can also be sunflower, flax, rapeseed, etc.
