chicken breast with gluten and lactose free brown sauce6

I couldn’t think of a better name than that. 😀 🙈I’ve been making it every couple of weeks for months at the request of my little family. I have no idea where the inspiration came from, it just did. Since several people asked for the recipe, I finally measured everything out today. Since I didn’t have much time to cook, I made our lunch today in the pressure cooker. 😊 For those who don’t have such a machine, you can cook it on the stove in a wok in the same way, but of course it takes longer to cook. The soy sauce must be gluten free!!!

Ingredients for 3 people

3 whole chicken breasts
1 tablespoon of lactose-free liquid butter
3 tbsp slightly hot gluten-free sambal
3 heaped tablespoons brown sugar
3 tablespoons gluten free soy sauce!!! you have to be very careful to make it gluten free!!!
3 tablespoons of gluten free ketchup
1 teaspoon of garlic powder
pepper to taste
salt to taste

Preparation

I have an Aigostar pressure cooker, but I’ve seen it under other names. It’s a great little appliance and often when I’m short of time, I just put it into work, like now. It makes very tasty meals in a short time. I have now set it to cook for the first time, as if I was using a hob. I put butter in the bottom of the pan and cooked both sides of the chicken breasts until red.

When the meat was nice and red, I put the sugar in the machine first and then the other ingredients. I pulled one of the meats aside to mix it all thoroughly and get a thick sauce. I also cooked both sides in the sauce for 1-1 minute.

I closed it, set it on the meat program, 15 minutes, as you can see. Since I had already cooked the chicken breasts in the machine, it reached the cooking temperature quickly, and was done in about 20 minutes total (pre-heating included).

Meanwhile, the potatoes were cooking in the airfryer. That way I could serve the delicious, flavorful, crumbly meat to my family 30 minutes later, doing other things while it was cooking. 😊 I served the meal with a hot, rich sauce. 😋 Sometimes I take the meat apart and put it with some sauce in a giant hot gluten-free bun. Try it, it’s delicious that way too. 😋

There is not always time to cook or spend a lot of time in the kitchen. It’s good to have a recipe that you can prepare in advance and store in the fridge to bake the next day. This dish took me 15 minutes to put together, and then I could do my business while it was baking.

Ingredients:

rice for 4 persons
1 small purple onion
1 small Chinese kale
400 g minced meat
salt to taste
pepper to taste
garlic powder to taste
lactose-free sour yoghurt or sour cream to taste

Preparation

To start, you need three pots. In the first one, put the rice to cook.

In the second, sauté the purple onion in butter until translucent.

In the third, put water to boil with a teaspoon of salt.

I cut off the end of the kale and separated the leaves.

After the onion was cooked, I mixed the minced meat with the herbs and cooked it until the meat was white.

No need to cook the rice and the meat fully, because they will still be roasting in the oven.

When the water has boiled, I cooked the cabbage leaves for 2-3 minutes, making sure that the thick white part is under the water.

I coated a fireproof dish with olive oil.

I used the cabbage leaves to line the bottom of the baking dish so that it overhangs the edge of the dish (you’ll need to fold this back over the minced meat at the end).

I spread the rice evenly on top, then came the minced meat.

I folded the rest of the cabbage over the minced meat. I spread the top generously with sour cream. I baked it in a preheated oven at 210 degrees for 30 minutes, at the end I baked it on a higher heat for 5 minutes to brown the sour cream and the cabbage on top.

It’s best when hot, when you take it out of the oven.😋 But then it’s hard to serve it nicely, because it tends to fall apart when you put it on the plate. If possible, wait 15 minutes before cutting it. You can also serve it with lactose-free sour yoghurt or sour cream on the plate.

Gluten-free Hungarian stuffed peppers

Gluten-free Hungarian stuffed peppers17

Stuffed peppers are an indispensable part of Hungarian cuisine. Many of us would like to believe that we have been preparing it for hundreds of years, depending on the region, and putting it on the table for the family’s enjoyment. We are wrong: this Hungarian dish, which is considered traditional, is of Serbian/Aryan origin according to legend, but they are said to have learned it from the Turks. The dish known as stuffed peppers or tomato meatballs, which is barely 100 years old, is the result of their wild marriage.
And of course it is a favorite of our family, especially my husband’s. 💕
I indicated that it’s gluten-free because it needs flour and the ingredients have to be very selective to make sure everything is gluten-free (bouillon cubes, tomato puree).

Ingredients for 4 people

200 g rice

For tomato sauce:
400 g concentrated tomatoes
olive oil
4 tablespoons gluten-free flour
50 grams chopped leeks
1 teaspoon salt
1 liter of power soup

For stuffed peppers:
300 g minced meat
4 larger peppers
olive oil
50 g chopped leeks
2 cloves of garlic
1 teaspoon salt
black pepper
2 eggs

Preparation

I prepared the rice first, I cooked it halfway and then rinsed it.

Since I didn’t have broth, I had to make it at the beginning, because I was going to add more of it during cooking.

I heated the oil and fried the flour in it. I added half the power soup, cooked it for a few minutes, then came the tomato puree, leeks and salt. I lowered the heat and cooked for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile I prepared the peppers. I washed them, cut off the stems and cut out the center.

I took a pan that was just a bit bigger than needed for the peppers, to have some space for any left-over stuffing.  It’s important that the pan isn’t much bigger, otherwise the sauce won’t cover the peppers when cooking.

I lightly fried the leeks for the stuffed peppers in olive oil. I put it on the cooled rice with the other ingredients. I mixed it thoroughly. The original recipe has pork in it, but we are allergic to it, so I made it with chicken breast, which is why the meat doesn’t show up as much in the rice.

I stuffed the peppers. It’s important to fill the peppers all the way through, because if you leave the end empty, it’s not pretty when you serve it, it will collapse. You shouldn’t overfill either, because the half-cooked rice will swell and that will cause the pepper to crack. I left out some filling, formed them into dumplings and put them between the peppers.
In the meantime, I made the tomato sauce and poured it on top. If it’s too thick, you’ll need to dilute it with some more power soup. After boiling, I put a lid on it and reduced the temperature so it was just slightly boiling. You have to be careful not to burn it, but don’t stir it, otherwise the stuffed peppers will fall apart. You can loosen them by joggling the pan while they cook. Occasionally top up the sauce by adding more left-over power soup, so the tomato sauce always covers the stuffed peppers and dumplings.

There are regions where they do not serve any side-dish. Some serve it with freshly baked bread. In my country, I was taught, boiled potatoes must be prepared as a side dish, and the potatoes are cut into strict lengths. 😀

After 30-40 minutes, the stuffed peppers were ready. I served them with lots of sauce and potatoes. Some people eat the peppers, others just the stuffing. My kitchen was filled with an old, familiar smell, like in the old days in the village when my grandmother used to make them. 💗
