Chicken and rice salads with curry


Author: Aušra

Date:

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.

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 🙂

Lemon chicken

Chicken is quite often prepared for lunch or dinner at our house, so it’s not surprise that I try to find new recipes with it. Till now I haven’t tried chicken with lemon. But this recipe is with mild lemon taste and is not very sour, so all my family enjoy it.

Chicken breast with curry and lemon peel

This dinner was very delicious and quick and it reminded me the spring when almost every meal was with a huge bowl of salads and a little bit meat for satiety. I baked chicken on electric grill and it was done in 10 minutes. It gave just enough time to chop my salads. I just love to have recipes that are appreciated by my family and at the same time are very quick.

Satisfying cheese and ham salads

Everyone was happy to eat them 🙂 Of course – it doesn’t contain onion or garlic, which my children don’t like. I did only a half of portion, but after a few minutes my hubby rolled up the sleeves and made these salads again just all by him self because it’s hard to narrate how he liked them 🙂 A lot of products have a strong taste, so I recommend you to substitute some mayonnaise with sour cream or natural yoghurt. And I say that you can have these salads in a blink 🙂

Chicken and zucchini pie

I can say that this is almost the same as Zucchini pie with tuna just tuna changed to chicken. Also I can say that I found out it only after a few times I baked this pie. Their taste are very different. They both are favourites in our family. Just now I bake with chicken more, because my kids don”t eat tuna, but pie with the chicken eats one of my kids.
