Chicken with garlic and marjoram & mushroom dressing

Chicken with garlic and marjoram & mushroom dressing

I got some messages saying no one taught them how to cook, please help. If you don’t mind, I’ll share the “educational” recipes here. I remembered that when I started to share my recipes, one of my daughters asked me to write it like I was teaching them how to cook. Then, over time, it turned out that their Spanish, Italian and Belgian friends were visiting the website for my recipes, especially for the gluten-free and lactose-free ones. Behold automatic translation. 😁 I’m not a chef, just a mom, so don’t expect extraordinary things from me. But you can expect tricks you can use when cooking. 😊 This recipe is not only for experienced ones.

Ingredients for 4 servings

8 boneless chicken legs
3 cloves of garlic
salt according to your taste
pepper according to your taste
marjoram according to your taste
vegetables according to your taste, this time I used mushrooms
1 tbsp rice flour
2 tbsp lactose-free sour cream or yoghurt
50ml cooking cream or vegetable cream
some cooking oil


1. The first important thing they asked me was how can I roast the meat to golden-brown while it’s crumbly inside. The trick is that you must heat up the cooking oil. It must be hot, not only warm. This time I used cooking butter, and you can see in the picture how it’s boiling because it’s very hot. That’s what I put the chicken meat in. Then I salted and I peppered it.

2. It took only a few minutes, then I turned it. I also salted and peppered this side (I always use freshly ground pepper, because it’s more tasty) then I sprinkled marjoram on the top. After a few minutes, I checked if the other side cooked to golden-brown as well. Then I lowered the temperature, but only so much that it was still baking. I poured about 100ml of water under it. I chopped the garlic into small pieces and I added it. It simmered under a lid for 40 minutes.

3. In the meantime, I cooked the rice, but you can make any other side-dish. You can find the rice in my recipes. After half an hour, I put the mushroom next to it, you can use any other vegetable. After 40 minutes, I took out the finished chicken. I mixed rice flour in the still moderately cooking liquid, added the sour cream and the cooking cream. I boiled it and it’s done.

4. When served, the golden-brown-cooked meat looks very nice, and it’s a surprise that it’s crumbly inside, not dry. If you make it the other way around and you steam the spicy meat first, it is very difficult to cook the meat to the right color at the end because it can quickly become over-cooked.
