So today I have made a really cool tasty Brazilian dish It's called Galinhada ! It includes 6 chicken breasts, cut into chunks
2 cubes of chicken bouillon, diluted in 1/2 cup water
Juice of one lemon
5 tablespoons oil
2 scallions, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, pressed
2 cups rice, washed and drained
2 tomatoes, peeled, cored and diced
1 green pepper, deseeded and diced
4 tablespoons peas
A few saffron threads
1 tablespoon parsley, finely chopped
1 tablespoon cilantro, finely chopped
To make it I
Mix the chicken, chicken bouillon, parsley, cilantro and lemon juice. Marinate for 2 hours.
In a large pot, heat oil and brown the chicken pieces and the marinade for 3 minutes at high heat, stirring constantly.
Add onion and garlic and cook for 5 minutes over high heat, stirring constantly.
Add the rice, saffron, tomatoes, peppers, and peas. Mix well and cover with 3 cups of boiling water.
Stir well and cook covered for 15 minutes over low/medium heat, stirring gently so that the rice does not stick to the bottom of the pot.
Add a little boiling water during cooking if necessary.
That's a really good dinner idea that was inspired by Brazil! I hope you give it a try! I chose to do a Dinner or lunch food item because i felt like it would be something vary fun to learn how to make.
Pao de Queijo: 1/2 cup olive oil or butter, 1/3 cup water 1/3 cup milk or soy milk, 1 teaspoon salt, 2 cups tapioca flour, 2 teaspoons minced garlic ,2/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Pour olive oil, water, milk, and salt into a large saucepan, and place over high heat. When the mixture comes to a boil, remove from heat immediately, and stir in tapioca flour and garlic until smooth. Set aside to rest for 10 to 15 minutes.
Stir the cheese and egg into the tapioca mixture until well combined, the mixture will be chunky like cottage cheese. Drop rounded, 1/4 cup-sized balls of the mixture onto an ungreased baking sheet.
Bake in preheated oven until the tops are lightly browned, 15 to 20 minutes.
