And another cooking club today! In this occasion, I have become a member of the “Savoury Circle” by Whole Kitchen. This is a web in Spanish, but as all of we know, recipes are kind of international, and if you don’t feel so, that’s why wordreference exists!
Now, about the circle, it is very easy to participate. Maybe it is not as forgiving as Nigella’s cookalong, but you can miss three recipes a year. For the moment, I am only in the savoury circle, but there’s sweet one that I’m sure I’ll be trying soon.
Again, don’t forget to become a member of A Cat Party Cooking Club: A Cooking Cat. You just have to fill in the form and I’ll mail you in order to tell you what to do.
And here we go! This month’s recipe: Coronation Chicken, with my particular twist…I made some mini pizzas!
Have you ever try this recipe this way? For me it was a great change to a classic!
You will need:
For the dough:
3 parts of whole wheat flour
1 1/2 parts of warm water
A pinch of salt
Fresh yeast (follow the package instructions)
1 tbsp olive oil
For the Coronation chicken:
1 diced and cooked chicken breast (I used leftovers from an already roasted chicken)
4 tbsp tomato sauce
2 tbsp masala
1/2 lime juice
2 tbsp mayonnaise
A handful of roasted almonds
2 tbsp of raisins
1 tbsp of green tomato jam
For the dough:
First of all, you need to make the pizza dough, because it takes around an hour to raise. Mix the yeast with the warm water. Make a well in the center of the flour and pour the mixture and the salt. Add the olive oil. With your hands mix and knead until it is a smooth and flexible dough. You may need more or less water depending on the type of flour, the surface in which you are kneading or even how moisturised your hands are! The first time can be messy, but once you do it on a regular basis, they are easy to do. Once you’ve been kneeding for at least 5 minutes (Though 10-15 minutes is my recommendation) make a ball and place it on a bowl that has been greased with olive oil. Push one finger in order to make a hole in the center of the ball. Cover with a tea towel and let it rest from 45 to 90 minutes.
For the chicken:
Fry the shallot and once it is done, roast the masala mix. Very quickly, pour the tomato. Cook until the tomato thickens a little. Add the chicken, the raisins and the salt. Take out from the fire. Mix the mayonnaise, lime juice and jam. Add it to the chicken.
For the pizzas:
Make little balls of dough and flatten them with your hands. You can now let them raise for 20 more minutes, but if you are in a hurry, they are going to raise on the oven a little. Put the chicken mixture (Not too much, but be sure you pour some of the sauce in order to give flavour to the dough) Bake for 15-20 minutes, and when they are cooked, turn the grill on in order to roast the chicken.
Take out of the oven and put some whole almonds above. This pizzas are delicious!You make Coronation Chicken pizzas, if you have some leftovers, you can make some sandwiches or a salad.
