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.

Kalakutienos kotletai su kopūstais

Turkey meatballs with cabbage

Kids-friendly recipe but also very good for adults. I made it for several times and every time all family loved it.

Kalėdiniai meduoliai

Christmas gingerbreads

Yeah, I know… Christmas was last year. But I want to remember this recipe for the future. It’s exclusive because one of the ingredients is sour cream. I didn’t decorate them, because these cookies were for my kids to eat before sleep. And from other side, why I need to decorate them? These cookies are delicious all by them self.

Migdoliniai vištienos piršteliai

Almond chicken fingers

These chicken fingers are very good. A lot of spices are used in the recipe, but the combination is perfect. Only cayenne pepper you should add according to your taste. When I prepare this chicken to my children, I add only half of it, but in the original it is used twice as much. Fingers are prepared very quickly, and the most exciting thing that it doesn’t need time to marinate, and later you don’t have to stand near the pan. For your health – it’s only for the good. We ate this chicken already many times, sometimes just as fast food – with some sauce and pickles or oven ​​fried potatoes. This time we had it for dinner with some vegetable stew, ordinary enough, but still everything was good and we liked it.

I wanted something new, not usual to us. So I prepared this chicken and I’m happy about that. At first the process looked very difficult and long, but in one hour everything was finished and we could enjoy the meal.
