Middle Eastern Roast Chicken

(I make this a week or so before Thanksgiving for my dormmates. This one hass a bit of a lengthy process, but it so worth it ^_^)

2 teaspoons dried orange peel or freshly grated orange zest
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon ground coriander
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
1/8 teaspoon ground cardamom or cloves
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1−2 tablespoons canola or saffron oil
1 8−10 pound roasting chicken, capon or small turkey

Orange Scented Gravy
1−2 cups fat free and low sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup orange juice
3 tablespoons flour
1/3 cup Madeira (or 1/4 cup Kraft Catalina dressing with 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce)
Salt and pepper for seasoning

Set oven temperature to 325 degrees. Combine the orange peel, garlic
powder, coriander, cinnamon, salt, white pepper, cardamom and cayenne
pepper together in a small bowl. Set aside a large roasting pan fitted
with a rack. Remove the giblets from inside the chicken. Discard or
reserve for another use. Rinse the bird inside and out with cold
running water. Place on a working surface and pat dry with paper
towels. Remove any visible fat with poultry shears. Very carefully
loosen the skin from around the breast, thigh, leg and neck areas with
a spoon without tearing the skin. Season the inside cavity with about
1/3 of the spice mixture. Rub the remaining mixture under the skin as
evenly as possible. Lightly oil the outside with canola oil. Tuck the
wings under the bird and tie the legs together loosely. Place in the
roasting pan and roast for 15 minutes per pound or until the internal
temperature registers 180F degrees. Use an instant read thermometer
placed between the thigh and the body without touching bone. Remove
the bird from the oven, transfer to a carving board, cover with
aluminum foil and let rest for 20 minutes before carving.

For the gravy:

Pour the pan juices into a bowl. Let the juices settle. The fat will
float to the top. Skim off the fat with a spoon or use a turkey baster
to siphon the juices from the bottom of the bowl. Add enough chicken
broth to measure 2 1/2 cups and pour into a saucepan. Add the orange
juice and bring to a boil. Mix the flour and Madeira together to make a slurry. Slowly pour into the gravy while whisking. Cook over
medium−high heat for 5−10 minutes stirring occasionally. Season to
taste with salt and pepper.

Default The Most Delicious Chicken Recipe EVER

My I made this last Saturday for a holiday dinner party. Its complex and DELICIOUS enough to entertain with, and also quite impressive. Although its very healthy, its does NOT taste so and was very hearty, perfect for the freezing, snowy day that Saturday was. I cannot express how much my guests and I love this dish! I got this from the Julia Child cookbook, "From Julia Childs Kitchen". You may chose not to use lardons, I did, only because they add so much flavor as they suck up all the wine and cognac, but I made sure to boil the fat out 4 times first. If you are unfamiliar with this French cooking technique, Google it.

Coq Au Vin
by Julia Child

Serves 4 to 6

convert Ingredients
1/2 cup
lardons, cut into 1/4 by 1 1/2-inch strips (optional)
2 or more
olive oil
2 1/2 pounds
ready-cut frying chicken (a selection of parts, or all of one kind), thoroughly dried
1/4 cup
Cognac or Armagnac

Salt and pepper
imported bay leaf
1/4 teaspoon
dried thyme
16 to 20 small
white onions, peeled
3 tablespoons
2 cups
red wine (Burgundy, Côtes du Rhône, or Pinot Noir)
About 2 cups
brown chicken stock or beef bouillon
1 or 2 cloves
garlic, mashed or minced
About 1 tablespoon
tomato paste
3/4 pound
fresh mushrooms, trimmed, washed, and quartered

1. If you are using lardons, sauté several minutes in 2 tablespoons oil in a heavy-bottomed casserole until lightly browned; remove lardons to a side dish and leave fat in pan. (Otherwise, film pan with 1/8 inch of oil.)

2. Heat fat or oil in pan to moderately hot, add chicken, not crowding pan; turn frequently to brown nicely on all sides. Pour in the Cognac, shake pan a few seconds until bubbling hot, then ignite Cognac with a match. Let flame a minute, swirling pan by its handle to burn off alcohol; extinguish with pan cover.

3. Season chicken pieces with salt and pepper; add bay leaf and thyme. Place onions around the chicken. Cover and cook slowly 10 minutes, turning once.

4. Uncover pan and sprinkle on the flour, turning chicken and onions so flour is absorbed; cook 3 to 4 minutes more, turning once or twice.

5. Remove from heat, gradually stir and swirl in the wine and enough stock or bouillon to almost cover the chicken. Add the browned lardons, garlic, and tomato paste to the pan. Cover and simmer slowly 25 to 30 minutes, then test chicken; remove those pieces that are tender, and continue cooking the rest a few minutes longer. If onions are not quite tender, continue cooking them; then return all chicken to the pan, add mushrooms, and simmer 4 to 5 minutes. Taste carefully, and correct seasoning. Sauce should be just thick enough to coat chicken and vegetables lightly. If too thin, boil down rapidly to concentrate; if too thick, thin out with spoonfuls of bouillon.

Chicken Tikka - my family's favorite chicken recipe

This wasn't a diet recipe but I switched the thighs for breasts, and use low-fat yogurt (it uses little enough I don't know how much difference that makes diet wise but that's what we have on hand these days so that's what we use). The spices are common for Indian cooking but are available in most regular grocery stores that I've seen in the spice aisle.

1-1/2 pounds chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes
small onion
2 cloves garlic
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
2 tablespoons lemon juice
3 teaspoons ground coriander
3 teaspoons ground cumin
3 teaspoons garam masala
1/3 cup plain yogurt (or lowfat)
1 teaspoon salt

You also need wooden skewers

Soak 12 wooden skewers in water.

Put onion, ginger, garlic, juice, coriander, cumin, and garam masala in a food processor. Process until fine, like a paste. Add yogurt and salt and continue processing just until mixed up.

Thread chicken onto skewers. Put them in a large baking dish and coat the chicken on all sides with the marinade. It will get kind of pasty and will stick to the chicken when cooking so make sure all the pieces are pretty evenly coated. Cover and put in the fridge. It can be in there for just a few hours but is even better if you can get it in there the night before.

Then get the grill going or turn on the broiler and cook those yummy chicken skewers till done through, turning every so often so all the sides get browned. Again, the marinade sticks like a paste and will get cooked on it.

2 or 3 skewers makes a meal with a salad and/or some veggies on the side. Yum!

Default Easy Chicken Adobo

This is a super easy, super versatile recipe that was a big hit in our house.

Easy Chicken Adobo
  1. 1/2 tsp olive oil
  2. 24 oz chicken
  3. 3 cloves garlic (or 3 tsp minced garlic from a jar)
  4. 2/3 cup apple cider vinegar
  5. 1/3 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
  6. 1 tsp whole peppercorns or ground pepper to taste (use green or pink peppercorns if you have them, they are a little milder)
  7. 1 bay leaf

Saute chicken in oil over med-high heat in non-stick frying pan until browned. Add garlic and saute a few minutes more. Add remaining ingredients, reduce heat, cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes. Remove cover, increase heat to med-high and continue to cook until sauce is reduced (another 10-15 min), stirring occasionally. Remove bay leaf before serving.

4 servings at 210 calories each (5g fat, 9g carbs, 33g protein).

You can cut the chicken up or leave it whole. You could use chicken thighs or drumsticks instead of breasts. You could even use pork tenderloin instead of chicken. You could also add all sorts of veggies to it (I add leeks and it came out great). Carrots, onions, celery, snow peas, broccoli, cauliflower, greens, mushrooms, baby corn, red or green bell peppers, etc. would also be good in it (basically any veggie you would put in a stir fry). If the veggies take a long time to cook, add them in the beginning after browning the chicken. If the veggies cook quickly, add them at the very end, after you uncover it for the final cooking stage. The longer you cook it, the more the sauce will cook down. I cooked it until the sauce was almost completely gone, but if you like a little more sauce, stop cooking a little sooner.

I served it with wild rice, but it would also be good with brown rice or Asian noodles.

Made a great Easy Chicken Alfredo of sorts tonight. I followed the sauce recipe below with the exception of adding minced garlic. I had "real" parm cheese, and didn't grate it into the blender, but added it to the sauce afterward. Fairly low in calories compared to the original version. Whole family loved it. I steamed broccoli, cauliflower, carrots and topped it with thin slices of red bell peppers at the end. Everyone loved it. Definitely not the rich, buttery, creamy stuff you'll get at Olive Garden, but we thought it was great!.

8 ounces dry fettuccine pasta
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup cottage cheese
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder 3 teaspoons minced onion
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 cups diced, cooked chicken breast meat

1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook pasta in boiling water for 8 to 10 minutes, or until al dente; drain, and set aside. (I boiled my veggies with the pasta at the same time.)
2. In a food processor, place the milk, flour, cottage cheese, garlic powder, onion, salt and pepper, and Parmesan cheese. Blend until smooth.
3. Transfer the blended mixture to a saucepan over medium heat. Mix in the chicken, and cook until heated through. Serve hot over pasta.

This was the posted information - I didn't double check it and of course I added lots of veggies: Calories 498 (26% from fat) | Protein 41.3g | Fat 14.9g (sat 7g) | Carbohydrate 49.1g | Fiber 2.1g | Cholesterol 79mg | Iron 3mg | Sodium 634mg | Calcium 301mg

Chicken Enchiladas

2 tbsp canola oil
2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp salt and pepper
4 skinless boneless chicken breatulars cut into small bitesize strips
2 onions sliced
1 red and green pepper thinly sliced
1 jalapeno pepper minced
1 cup drained and diced tomatoes
1/2 cup shredded light cheddar or monterey jack cheese
8 large whole wheet tortillas

1/2 cup shredded light cheddar or jack cheese
1/2 sour cream

in a bowl combine 1tbsp canola oil, chili powder, cumin, oregano, salt and pepper. add chicken and coat with the mixture. ( i find letting it marinate for overnight or the day makes it extra yummy!)

Heat 1 tbsp of canola oil in pan and cook chicken.

reduce heat to medium and cook onions, red, green peppers and jalapenos until tender.. 10 minutes-ish.

Put the cooked veggies in a big bowl, add in chicken, cheese and tomatoes and mix up.

Divide amoung tortillas and roll up ( i find closing the ends of the tortillas is good to do). Place them tightly into a greased 9x13 baking dish. cover with foil and cook at 400 for about 15 minutes.
remove foil, sprinkle with topping cheese and bake for 10 more minutes or until cheese is bubbly and tortillas are crisp.
Serve with sour cream
