Chicken with cinnamon and paprika

Cinnamon always associates with Christmas. So when autumn comes, we all tend to bake apple pies which almost every time are seasoned with cinnamon. But this spice is used not only for sweets. With it you can really prepare very tasty and also healthy dishes. One of them – chicken with cinnamon and paprika. And even if you are not used to cinnamon in non sweet meals, I can say that in here it gives only a very mild aroma and a good pinch of bitterness and cosiness. And paprika has a lot of vitamin C, so it’s really good if you don’t want to get cold.

Chicken breast with homemade tomato sauce

Sometimes even when at home there is only a few products, you still can prepare satisfying meal. For this one you only need to buy canned tomatoes and chicken breast, other products – I guest almost everyone have at home. But I have to tell you this time you will have to spend some time preparing tomato sauce, but it’s worth that. I like it even more than store bought. But my kids don’t agree with me 🙂 But everyone has the right to choose.

Rotisserie style baked chicken

This chicken has a mild lemon taste. It is a little bit spicy and hot, but it’s not so hot because my kids skill eat it 🙂 The seasoning mixture in here is just perfect for us.

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.

Spicy chicken wings

When the weather was not so warm, we still wanted something to snack with beer. So I corrected a little bit the recipe and baked this wings in the oven. Now I think that we should repeat them, just bake this time on the grill. Anyway in the marinate used so many spices that I was afraid of them at first, but wings baked so good that even my hubby who hates caraway, couldn’t say anything bad about them 🙂

Chicken and rice stew with chanterelles

At first glance it seems that it is simple pilaf with chicken. But lemon and hot chilli sauce gives spicy taste to the dish. I prepared it already two times: first – without mushrooms, because my hubby was at home, the second – with mushrooms, because I was all alone 🙂 Both times it was delicious. Don’t know about other kids, by mine don’t like spicy dishes, so I didn’t even asked to taste 🙂
