Chicken and rice salads with curry

I decided to prepare something new for our already boring quick menu. This dish is very quick, if you do like me – boil chicken a day before. My hubby commended. I asked him maybe the dish is so good because almost all the week we ate what we had on hand? But he assured that no and ate almost everything, leaving just a few bites for my next day lunch… You can enjoy these salads and cold, and warm.

Creamy curry dip

Till this dip I always prepared dip out of ketchup, mayonnaise and sour cream. But after I found this recipe, from now on I prepare only this dip

Smoked chicken breast and broccoli salads

When my mother on the weekend told me about the salads that she tasted at work, I was sceptical. And when she decided to prepare it for us, I was afraid (our taste is very different). But I’m glad that she did it, because we liked it a lot. It’s better to say that grown ups liked it, because my kids didn’t like onion and broccoli. Mayonnaise doesn’t make these salads healthy but for a quick dinner they were very good.

Baked chicken livers with onion and tomato sauce

From the childhood we all know that livers are very healthy to eat, but knowing doesn’t mean that you do it. One day I decided to make chicken liver pate and they were very delicious but I had some liver leftover and started to look for some new recipe. I found it in one of my favourite books and it looked very similar to the dish that my mom used to make when I was a child. So I gave it a try and me and my hubby enjoyed it a lot! Sadly but my kids didn’t understand us and didn’t eat. But anyway now this recipe is one of my favourites, because it’s so quick that for making and eating it I spend less than an hour.

Hearts and carrot stew

If the past time was a healthy recipe, now it’s the cheap one. After all, you need to have all kinds of options. I made this stew for three times because we couldn’t decided we like it or not. The second time I made it, carrots had too strong taste and we didn’t like it. So choose young, crisp and tasty carrots and everything will be fine. Our children do not eat this sort of misunderstandings , so me and my hubby enjoyed it for lunch. And the last time it was so delicious that we ate more than we should. 🙂
