Easy Yugoslavian Chicken Recipe
The World Expo back in 1986 was a special time for me. I visited the pavillions of many different countries. However, my origin of (the former) Yugoslavia was very special. While I had expected to see quite of bit of their culture, I never expected to pick up a very meaningful find. It was cookbook of Yugoslav dishes.
Since I was born and raised in America, I had never known the delicacies the Yugoslavs enjoyed. While I have tried only a few recipes due to difficulty in translation from metric to the more common cups, tablespoons and teaspoons, I have found one that I thoroughly enjoy. A bit rich, but entirely decadent and very simple, it is called Chicken and Walnuts.
It is prepared with the following ingredients.
Servings : 4-6
Preparation Time : 30 Min.
Cooking Time : 50 Min.
Difficulty Level : Average
- 1 kg (2.2 lbs) of Chicken
- 1 dl (.2 pint) Water
- Salt, pepper, sprig of parsley
- 500 g (19 oz) Shelled walnuts
- 40 g (1.5 oz) Butter
- 20 g (.75 oz) Flour
- 50 g (2 oz) Finely grated garlic
- Salt and pepper the cleaned chicken.
- Place in an oven proof dish.
- Add a little water and cover.
- Roast in the over for 50 minutes.
- Cut the chicken into 8 pieces and arrange on a heatproof dish.
- Brown butter and flour and add ground walnuts, grated garlic, and the gravy from the chicken.
- Cook the sauce well and pour it over the chicken.
- Put the dish in the n for 5 to 10 minutes and serve hot.
- There was no oven temperature listed, so I believe 350 degree is safe.
I would suggest serving a small amount at first with a salad, as the walnuts make this a very rich dish.
