Chicken strogonoff

Hello,

Somedays ago I was just watching Gordon Ramsay’s recipe (click here to see) and it impressed me a lot so I reproduced it but with some differences ingredients. I bought Ras el hanout species some weeks ago and I thought about replacing the smoked paprika with this mix of species, and as long as I was not able to find sour cream (or even to know exactly what it is in Spanish) I replaced it with a yogurt. Well the results were amazing, so I am sharing with you this recipe.

Ingredients (for 2 people):

  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 2 onions
  • 2 green peppers
  • 2 garlic clove
  • 1 tablespoon Ras el hanout
  • 100 gr of mushrooms
  • ¼ litre chicken stock
  • ~ 125 ml white wine
  • 1 Yogurt (or sour cream)
  • A bunch of parsley

Let’s start cutting the chicken breasts into strips, put the strips on a bowl add a bit of salt and mix well. Now add 1 tablespoon of ras el hanout and mix again well. Ras el hanout it’s a typical mix of species from Morocco, you can find it for example in Amazon.com :). After mixing clean your hands with abundant water and soap, otherwhise your nails will be yellow for some days.

Now it’s time to cut the rest of ingredients, cut into julienne 2 onions, cut into strips two green peppers, having each strip about one finger of length, cut in 4 about 100 gr of mushrooms and laminate 2 garlic cloves. Be sure to wash well your mushrooms, because if it remains some ground it could ruin your recipe, and it would be a pity.

In a pan add enough olive oil to cover the base, before oil gets too hot add the chicken breast, stir and cook for about 5 minutes. Then remove the chicken from the pan and reserve for later. In the same pan add the onion, green pepper, mushrooms and garlic as well as a bit of salt; cook them for about 10 minutes and stir frequently. After these 10 minutes add a bit of white wine (about 125 ml) and cook  for 5 minutes more, also stirring frequently.

After these 5 minutes put back the chicken in the pan, add about ¼ litre of chicken stock, a yogurt (or sour cream) and a bunch of chopped parsley. Mix well everything and stir frequently while cooking for 25 to 40 minutes. You need to cook it until there is almost no liquid.

You can also use half chicken breast per person, and add some steamed rice.

Ingredients (for 3-4 people):

Start chopping one onion. I used cod and salmon but you can use any other fish, without spines and without skin, even use some prawns.

Peel the potatoes, cut in regular pieces and add to a pot with boling water with a bit of salt. Cook them for about 15 minutes until the are soft.

Add olive oil to a pan, when the oil is hot add chopped onion a bit of salt and move it. Add one graten carrot, and cotinue moving frequently.

When carrot and onion are well cooked, add some thyme and rosemary, the fish cut in not too small pieces, and a glass of white wine. Crush the fish with a wooden spoon and maintain cooking and moving until the wine is evaporated.

Add some salt and an egg to the already stained potatoes. Crush and mix them with a fork to form a puree.

Add the fish in an oven recipient. Over the fish distribute uniformly the puree. Grate cheese over the puree (you can use parmigiano, grana padano, old amsterdam or your favourite one).

Make some holes with a fork and put in the oven at 350º F (180º C) for 20 minutes and finally 5 minutes on the gratin position.
