Harissachicken with cauliflower couscous

Harissa has become a more frequent thing in our kitchen. This north African chilipaste you can make yourself, however, we buy it in a jar at the supermarket, as we find that plenty good. Chilipaste may sound a bit on the hot side, but it actually is perfectly spiced when used in a marinade, as in this recipe.

Chicken with ajvarsauce

Ajvar is a pepper-based condiment made principally from red bell peppers. It may also contain garlic, eggplant and chili peppers. Ajvar originates in Serbian cuisine and was therefore long known as “Serbian salad” or “Serbian vegetable caviar”.

Fajitas party!

My son Martin is a huge fajitas fan, and through the years we have made fajitas on a regular basis. Not only is it delicious, but also very healthy! Lots of vegetables and chicken, and for the low-carbers, just elminate the tortilla.

Chicken “en papillote”

I have made this dish so many times, and every time I have the same reaction; how can something so good and delicious be so easy to make. It takes appr 5 minutes to assemble, and for the rest it cooks it self in the oven. When serving this to guests, I leave the paperbag on the plate, so that each and every one can have the pleasure of opening the package, and get that first aroma straight up their nose 🙂

Chicken Diable

“Diable” is the French word for “devil”, and when this word is used in connection with food, that usually means Dijon mustard is involved.

This is a good weekday dish, as it is relatively fast to make, and tastes excellent. I usually make it with whole grain mustard, because I like how the grains kind of “decorates” the sauce.
