Three Simple Recipes :-)

I cooked three simple super easy recipes yesterday with a FB friend :-) It was so much fun. I just wanted to share the recipes with you all.... They are on my FB Group: Ansam's Kitchen.

1. Almost Mashed Potato Salad
2 medium sized potatoes - cubed and left in salted water for a while
1 large celery stick - sliced
1 scallion (spring onions) bulb - chopped
4 table spoons ranch dressing

Bring water to boil, add potatoes on medium heat until cooked
In a bowl mix all of the ingredients, mashing the potatoes a little

2. Stuffed Mushrooms
8 Giant Holland mushrooms - Stems removed and chopped (only stems)
18 small hotdogs (the really small ones or 6 regular sized) - chopped
Pasta sauce
Mozzarella cheese
2 limes - juiced

In an oven tray place the mushrooms, stuff them with the hotdogs and chopped stems. Cover with tomato pasta sauce and cheese. Drizzle with olive oil and place in the oven until its cooked and cheese fully melted (170C for 30 mins)

3. Spicy Chicken with Sun-dried Toamtoes
4 chicken breast cut into smaller pieces
Mixed spices (pepper, salt, garlic, citrus)
1 lime juice
1/3 cup balsamic
Sun-dried tomatoes
4 tbs olive oil (two for marinade and 2 for frying)
1/4 onion - chopped

In a bowl mix balsamic, oil, spices, lime, and chicken. Let it marinate in the fridge. In a frying pan heat some olive oil and add onion until caramelized. Add the chicken but do not fully cook it (like for a minute) then remove from stove, and place it in an oven tray. Add the marinade and cook in the oven (170 - 40 mins) adding the sun dried tomato after 30 minutes.


PS: I know... I know, PICTURE QUALITY IS BAD :-( I was told by my friend to wait till after the elections for that cameras now are expensive... So I shall wait and see :-S
