CHICKEN WITH CHEESE PUFFS


CHICKEN WITH CHEESE PUFFS
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
salt, to taste
pepper, to taste
3 cups buttermilk (720 ml)
1 packet ranch seasoning
10 cups cheese puff (270 g)
oil, to fry

Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper.
Make parallel cuts in each chicken breast without slicing all of the way through. Place chicken breasts in a large bowl.
Add buttermilk and ranch seasoning mix to the bowl and stir until chicken is well-coated. Marinate in refrigerator for 4 hours, or overnight.
While chicken is marinating, place cheese puffs in a food processor or blender and pulse until finely ground. Pour into a large bowl.
Using tongs or yours hands, toss each marinated chicken breast into cheese puff powder.
Bend coated chicken breast to form a hollow circle. Use a toothpick to seal the ends together.
Heat oil to 350°F (175°C) in a large skillet or pot.
Carefully place each breast in the hot oil and cook for 4-5 minutes, or until internal temperature of chicken breast reaches 165°F (75°C).
Remove the chicken breasts and transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.
Serve with french fries, carrots, broccoli, and ranch dressing, if desired.
Enjoy!

Seal chicken both sides and place in baking dish. Fry onions and put over chicken. Mix together:
1 tin pea soup OR butternut soup
1 tub cream,
½ bottle mayonaise
1 cup mozarella
1 cup cheddar
Pour over chicken and bake 1 hour at 150°C or 30 min at 180°C. Or till chicken is soft and tender. You can put more soup in to have more gravy. Serve with rice and peas or salad.

Lizelda Hope Mitchley
Sny in dik skywe, kap met ‘n kombuis hammer plat, sit filling en kaas in, rol op, sit op bak plaat, smeer olive oil oor en bak. As dit gaar is, rasper ‘n hopie kaas op die bak plaat en plaas daar op vir ‘n paar sekondes, doen aan ander kant ook.
Bianca Binxy Hayward

Zelda Ellis

Aqeelah Slamdien
I braise 3 onions in real butter, nice and soft, then in a separate bowl I cube my chicken breast, add 4 teaspoons of tomato paste, fresh garlic and ginger and I buy butter chicken spice at my butcher, mix all well together and add to my onions in the pot, let it simmer for 20 minutes, and then add some fresh cream and danya (optional), simmer for further 10 minutes and all done, serve with white rice, roti or naan bread.
Annatjie Kotze
Ek sny in dun repies, doop in geklitste eier, rol in krummels met speserye wat ek self maak, sit die stukkies op koekrakkies in yskas vir 20 minute dat die krummels lekker vassit, dan deepfry ek dit vir paar minute in warm olie, haal uit sit op kombuis papier, bedien saam met geurige rys of aartappel skyfies, in sweet chillie doopsous, heerlik verby, probeer dit gerus, jy sal dit weer maak.
Cjr Van Niekerk
Annatjie Kotze Kan ook yskas water gebruik. Na ek die hoender so 3 ure marinade, dan dip ek dit in meel, dan die water dan terug in die meel. Gee dieselfde kors vorm as KFC se hoender, nog net die speserye wat ek aan werk. O ja en die rou stukkies in krummes vries ook goed.
Why not stuff them with something interesting and slow cook with some small potatoes and veg.
Esté Kaltwasser Fouché
As dit bors stukkies is, maak gevulde borsies.
Neeltje Viljoen
Sny oop soos koevertjie, vul met pietersielie, kaas en uie, rol spek rondom, steek vas met stokkies, doop in eier en meel, braai vinnig in diep vet en sit dan in oond vir ‘n paar minute. Heerlik sag en sappig.
Petro Tonkin
Sit in oond met spices tot lekker sag, vlok. Kap ‘n groot pak swart sampoene fyn, meng met hoender, voeg mayonaise by, net genoeg om te bind, meng gerasperde kaas by. Sit in oondbak, strooi paprika oor en bak. Heerlik met ‘n groen slaai.
Amelia Gous

Charmaine van Zyl
Chicken snitzels wat jy daai hoender filette dan maak jy dit plat en gebruik dit vir hamburgers.
Ruth Scholtz
Slaan hoender bietjie plat. Braai sampioene en spek en meng met bietjie kaas. Sit op die hoender en rol toe en steek vas met tandestokkie en braai hoender tot gaar. Eet met slaai, chips of gemengde groente.
Gerda Pienaar
Kom ek sê jou wat lekker is. My familie is mal daar oor. Jy sny hoender in stukkie soos jy stew maak. Ek gebruik gewoontlik die bors gedeelte, wat niks bene in nie. Kook dit vir so 15 min. Dan braai jy uie, green pepper, rooi peper en sampioene saam. Gooi een teelepel kerrie daar in. Braai ‘n rukkie. Gooi die hoender daar in. Braai dit saam tot hoender gaar is. Laat afkoel, gooi mayonnaise daar in. En vat geel perskes in ‘n blik sny dit daar in. Set met broodrolle. Dis baie lekker, probeer dit.

Next, add the garlic and ginger, spices, tomato paste, salt and chillies and cook for 10 minutes, adding a dash of water to prevent burning and also stirring when necessary.
Add the chicken and yoghurt marinade and cook on medium to high heat, stirring occasionally. Whatever you do, do not add water to the curry.

KFC (AS CLOSE AS YOU’LL GET TO THE ORIGINAL)


KFC (AS CLOSE AS YOU’LL GET TO THE ORIGINAL)
2 cups maize meal
1.5 cups plain flour
4 teaspoons salt
4 teaspoons white pepper
6 teaspoons ‘Maggi’ chicken stock powder (*)
Mix all ingredients well.

4 whisked eggs. In a bowl.
As many chicken pieces as you like to use up the ingredients
(*) Maggi stock powder is no longer available in South Africa. Use any available or try cream of chicken soup powder.

Equipment:
You require a steamer and deep fryer.
I used an electric frying pan filled with water, a stainless steel cake stand that fits over the rim of the pan, a lid.
The oil in the deep fryer should be fairly hot during the process of steaming.
Dip some chicken pieces into the egg covering all around.
Thereafter roll the pieces in the dry ingredients covering all around.
Place the pieces separated on the steamer grid, cover with lid and allow to steam for 20 minutes.
At this stage the batter is soft. Take tongs and transfer the chicken pieces straight into the hot oil and fry for about 4 minutes until the batter is golden brown and crispy.
Allow 5 to 10 minutes to cool and enjoy.
(If you prefer some heat you can add Chilli powder to the dry ingredients.)

Some interesting information:
Colonel Sanders had large pressure cookers modified. He could steam the battered chicken in 5 minutes.
A basket containing the chicken could be transferred from the steamer straight into the fryer without having to use tongs.
The reduced water in the steamer was used to make the gravy.
Off course, the eleven herbs and spices are merely a variety contained in the stock powder!
