Snacks / Appetizers
Who doesn’t love munching snacks! Instead of going in for store-bought or frozen snacks, try making it on your own! All the snacks/ appetisers listed below are really yummilicious!! My favorites are chicken puffs, tandoori chicken, chicken pakoras, chicken drumstick fry, chicken 65, baked chicken nuggets and chicken wings roast.
Creamy Chicken-Vegetable Soup and Mexican Chicken tortilla Soup
Chicken Wraps / Rolls / Sandwiches
Wraps and rolls are something that always catches my fancy! They are easy to make, fills a hungry stomach and less messy too! Do u need another reason to try it? Start with the yummy Mexican chicken quesadilla, flautas, fajitas and Greek gyros. I am sure you will fall in love with them! You might also want to try an Indo-chinese twist on dosa – spring roll dosa and the Calcutta street food, kathi rolls.
You may not find many sandwich recipes here, they are soon to follow!
Side – dishes for chapathis / plain rice / pulav / fried rice / porotta/ appam / idiyappam
When I have guests, I always go in for vegetable pulav /matar pulav / veg biriyani/ fried rice and a chicken / mutton dish. I usually pair vegetable pulav with coriander chicken curry, nadan chicken curry, chicken chettinad, chicken chilly roast, Mughlai chicken qorma or Kerala style chicken kurma.
Curry leaf pepper chicken is our recent favorite, it goes really well with porotta, plain rice, pulav, chapathis etc. Chicken stew, Chicken mappas, Trissur style chicken and potato curry are the best combos for Kerala appam, kallappam and idiyappam.
Need some more? Do you have any favorites? The combos are endless and the choice is really yours!
Chicken Biriyani / Pulav/ Noodles /Fried Rice
During my first year of marriage, I used to always make Kerala chicken biriyani whenever we had guests. Slowly, I got bored of it and I needed variety ! I decided to try different biryanis. Green chicken biriyani got me hooked! It is easier to make compared to the traditional chicken biriyani and will be loved by everyone who likes the flavor of coriander leaves and mint.
Now get those chickens out of your freezers, defrost it and cook! Do let me know what you all made!
I hope this post on chicken recipes was useful to you. Happy cooking!
