This is a simple and an easy to follow recipe for stewing some chicken meat. Do you like to eat chicken meat? I do, especially after I personally cook it. One of my favorite ways to cook chicken is by stewing it, but first there will be a boiling process for removing some unwanted extra fat and for juicier and more tender feel and taste. I’ve recently decided to cook some food for my family and I, and I like to cook it so there would be enough for at least two days. I just don’t have time for cooking every day. At the same time I like to cook and/or yummy food :)
If you want to know the Nutrients and Health Benefits of Chicken meat then go to This Link. At the same time, if you want to know the Nutrients and Health Benefits of Quinoa which is what I cooked with this meat, then go follow This Link.
The Formula for making Quinoa is easy, just like rice, one cup of Quinoa with two cups of water and with some salt and herbs for better taste. In other words 1 Cup of Quinoa = 2 Cups of Water, or 4 Cups of Quinoa = 8 Cups of Water. Close the lid with all that mixed together in one pot. Bring all of that to boil and let it simmer for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes open the lid and move the quinoa to see the water at the bottom of the pot. If there is still some water left then stir it all and let it be for a minute or two without the lid so all extra water evaporates. You’ll may want to add about half a stick of Organic butter and mix it all together again so it doesn’t stick too much when it cools down. Also, taste it at this point and add salt if it needs it, but don’t over salt it.
Anyway, back to the Chicken meat recipe. It is up to you if you want to include some vegetables in it or not, but an onion and garlic is A MUST. I believe that garlic and onions make all kinds of meats taste better, juicier, and more tender. In my opinion and according to some people, onions make hard-to-chew meat become easy-to-chew meat. So, I think we can begin with the steps and the recipe for Chicken Meat.
– If you got boneless chicken meat, then you can immediately begin cutting the meat into small squares of about 1/2 inches by 1/2 inches or about 3/4 by 3/4 of an inch. If your chicken meat has bones, then I recommend to get rid of them now, so it’s easier and cleaner to eat it later. If your chicken meat is frozen, then I recommend unfreezing it about half way and then cutting it up. When the meat is partially frozen you can cut it into straighter pieces. Cut off any and all unwanted parts or fat from chicken at this point, because then the boiling process will be cleaner.
- Fill the pot with water. Depending on how much meat you want to make, you’ll need to diced yourself how much water you need. I’d say make sure that all of the meat floats freely in water, a little extra water won’t hurt.
- Put the meat in water, some salt, pepper, and herbs for better taste. Put it on the stove and bring it to boil.
- Get rid of all the dirty foam and fat that comes up when it begins to boil.
- Lower the heat and let it slowly boil for 30 minutes.
- While the meat is boiling, let’s get our vegetables ready. You can use fresh and/or frozen vegetables. I really recommend one whole onion and one whole garlic bulb. Clean them and chop them into very very small pieces. Other vegetables are optional, but would be beneficial for health. You could add Bell Peppers, Celery, Carrots, Mushrooms, Cabbage, Broccoli, Green Beans, Peas, and/or Corn. Chop it all up but NOT as small as the onions and garlic. Make sure that there is same or less amount of vegetables than there is meat.
- After 30 minutes of boiling your vegetables should be all clean, chopped up, and ready to use. Get the meat out of that dirty boiling water (I usually put it in the same dish with the chopped up vegetables which were waiting to be used). You can even pour some of that boiled water into that dish with meat and vegetables, but NOT much, like up to a quarter of an inch from the bottom of that dish.
- Pour the rest of unwanted water out, clean the pot, and reuse by putting all meat, vegetables, and water (which is pretty much broth at this point) into this cleaned pot. Also, you can add like half of a cup of your favorite sauce into that mix. I recommend my favorite Sweet Chilli Sauce, I use it with all or most of meats that I cook. Frying or Stewing, this Sauce is the Best in my opinion. Sometimes I use it on some of my foods, like dumplings or macaroni. It has some sugar in it, but I believe most of it evaporates while cooking and then you are left with this spicy and sweet taste. The Ingredients of this Sauce are in the following order: Sugar, Water, Pickled Red Chilli, Vinegar, Garlic, Salt, Stabilizer: Xanthan Gum. So, if you want it, then Click Here or on the Image of this Red Sauce. As you can see I decided to provide you with its Nutrition Facts too. These images are exact representation of what I buy locally, but if you buy this one through me on Amazon, then you’ll throw a few cents or bucks into my pocket too ;)
- Anyway, after you got your clean boiled meat, some vegetables, and sauce into that clean pot, you need to bring it to boil and simmer it or in other words stew it for 15 minutes with a closed lid. Makes sure to close the lid all the way.
