This recipe for green chicken is one I have had and made a few times and I am not sure who gave me the recipe … got it initially written on a scrap of paper and the ingredients were vague to say the very least…But it was tasty and I didn’t think it would be…
My version of Green chicken with spinach.
- 1 kilo of chicken pieces cut up fairly small.
- 4/5 cloves of garlic
- A piece of fresh ginger chopped finely
- A bunch of green onions chopped
- Handful of Coriander
- Handful of Mint
- 2 bunches of spinach
- 1/2 tsp of black pepper
- 2/3 green chillies
Add a tbsp of ghee or oil to a pan while it is heating crush the chillies and the ginger in a pestle and mortar and add to the oil cook for about a minute stirring as we don’t want to burn the garlic add the onions and allow to sweat but not colour too much about 3-4 minutes..Add the chicken and pepper, stir and lower the heat until the chicken is golden in colour.
Clean and wilt the spinach the spinach for 1-2 mins and set aside.
Once the chicken is golden add the spinach and cook for a further 10-15 mins add the coriander and mint in the last 3 mins stir to combine. Check and add salt if required.
Serve with flatbread or steamed rice and pickle.
I hope you enjoy this chicken as much as we did it is now a family favourite
My flatbread recipe:
- 1/4 cup milk.
- 1/2 cup water.
- 2 cups flour.
- 1 tbsp Baking Powder.
- 2 tbsp oil
- 1/2 tsp salt.
Sift dry ingredients together. Add liquids and mix thoroughly…I used my food processor and it took literally 2 mins…. if that and formed a ball. If it is too sticky add little more flour. Divide into 8 pieces. Flatten with the heel of the hand and roll out very thin.
My first attempt at this was not good and I didn’t roll mine out thin enough to start with but having made this recipe a few times I am getting good …I even add some chopped garlic and coriander which is really nice and next Time I may stuff them …I will let you know how they turn out…
Heat pan and cook 2/3 minutes each side turn over with tongs or fish slice and done…
So easy to make I make enough for what I need plus enough to freeze for the next time I make a curry…
