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.

Dessert with halva for lazy people

I can’t decide – I became lazy or just too tired to do anything. So still living and looking for quick and easy food. This lazy cake is not very sweet, so peope with sweet tooth maybe should add some sugar. But we liked it a lot – it’s not too sweet (as I mentioned 🙂 ), moist and creamy consistency.

Chicken, marinated in a sweet chilli sauce

We love chicken, but it’s very hard to find good chicken marinade to bake it on the grill. And know I know that it’s not the fault of the recipes, it’s because we a lot of time overbake it. The last time we baked chicken on the grill I was walking around the grill and watched that no one overbaked it 🙂 I looked strange, but… what can we do if we want to taste food good 🙂

Chicken in the cream and paprika sauce

One more easy and simple, as a lot of others, chicken dishes. I decided to try something new, because I”m a little bit tired to prepare chicken in a cream sauce and all the time overeat. This recipe is a little bit similar, just new seasons gives the new taste. And really don’t remember, we overate or didn’t 🙂

Vištiena, marinuota jogurte

Chicken, marinated in yoghurt

I looked for good chicken marinate for a long time. And when i finally tried this, I knew that this is what I was looking for. First time we baked on the grill chicken chunks on skewers and it was delicious. The next time I prepared chicken roasts and I think I over baked and the meat was a little bit too dry. But I know what I did wrong and the next time I will do everything good 🙂 And for sure I will prepare this marinate more than one more time.
