Ingredients: (serves 3)
Chicken breasts (boneless) – half kg
Spring onions – half a bunch, finely chopped
Black pepper – half teaspoon
Dry Oregano – half teaspoon (optional)
Fresh cream 2 cups
Lime juice – 1 tablespoon
Oil for frying
Salt – as per taste
Cut the chicken breast horizontally into flat but big pieces.
Rub the pieces with a pinch of salt, oregano, lime juice and black pepper and leave it for 5 minutes.
Heat oil in a fry pan. Add the finely chopped spring onions and stir for a min.
Add the chicken pieces and cover it with the lid. The spring onions will stick to the chicken.
Flip the chicken after one side is cooked and keep the lid again.
Take out the fried chicken (with the stuck spring onions).
The pan will be left with some oil and some onions. Inside the same pan, pour the fresh cream and simmer for a couple of minutes.
Add salt if necessary.
While plating, serve the chicken first and top it up with the sauce. It tastes best with pasta or a simple serving of mashed potatoes.
Warm welcome to BitesandPlaces!
My humble little blog has its own story to tell… my story… I’m gregarious being, vagabond at heart and have a monstrous appetite for food. I used to be a Human Resource professional until few years ago. To be among, with and for people was the reason I’d chosen this field.
Being in HR, I could only accomplish the ‘people’ part. I still yearned to be in those places I saw on TV and travel magazines and craved to eat all kinds of food that lulls you into coma. I didn’t want to be just a spectator anymore. I wanted to be in those pictures.
Luck smiled at me and I fell sick with an awful heart, lungs and liver disorder. Family said stay home. Rest.
Rest? Were they crazy? I grabbed this opportunity and quit my job; to pursue my passion – people, places and food.
Being on my own gave me lot of spare time for all the three.
I’m not a professional cook, but I’m mighty passionate about cooking. Although Indian, BitesandPlaces does not restrict itself to just the dishes of my country, which are toothsome beyond doubt. I’ve also tried to put together a bunch of mouth-watering and eye-pleasing recipes scattered from all parts the world. A lot of them are a tribute to my mum’s kitchen, the ones I grew up with. Few of them are a result of my experimentation and few others, borrowed from my generous friends 🙂
I religiously follow Andrew Zimmern’s favorite quote – what looks good to your eyes, EAT IT!! After all food is something that follows no boundaries, isn’t it.
Travel, I believe, is about exploring new places, meeting new people, building new relations, soaking in their culture, gorging on their cuisines, discovering their stories and of course, capturing all of these in my teeny-tiny camera.
After having been there and done that, I was inspired to share my travelogues with you, encourage you to travel and in some way find a bit of your happiness through me.
Thus BitesandPlaces was born!
Life’s a journey and people, places and food are all a part of it. So, come along with me and eat your way through this journey called Life…
I like staying connected. And it’ll be a frosting on my cake if you drop a line or two at firstname.lastname@example.org.
