The best recipes are the ones that require minimal preparation, are high on core flavours and pair well with most dishes. Creamy oregano chicken is a simple no-fuss recipe that marvelously intermingles the very characteristics of the basal ingredients that go into the dish. The succulent chicken pieces coated with rich and fragrant cream sauce guarantee that once you dig into the dish you will be left asking for more.
The oregano and mustard impart a wonderful earthy flavour to the sauce which is light on the palate. It’s a great dish for weekend dinners and parties especially for people who are constantly on the run as the recipe itself calls for just a few ingredients that almost always tend to be there on our kitchen shelves and can be rustled up in a matter of few minutes. In case you feel the dish is slightly heavy you can balance it out by replacing cream with mayonnaise and adding a few roasted veggies into the sauce.
Here Is A Recipe To Make The Heavenly Creamy Oregano Chicken:
2 pounds chicken breasts
1 tspn Oregano (dried)
1 tspn mustard powder
1/2 tspn garlic powder
1/4th tspn white pepper powder
1 cup fresh cream
1/2 cup chicken stock
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Salt as per taste
Heat some olive oil in a frying pan and shallow fry whole chicken breasts on both sides until tender. Transfer the cooked chicken breasts on tissue paper to absorb any excess oil.
Chop the cooked chicken into bite sized chunks and keep aside. Reserve the oil left in the frying pan for making the sauce.
To make the sauce stir a cup of fresh cream with salt, garlic powder, pepper powder and mustard powder in a bowl and add it to the pan which was used to fry chicken pieces.
Cook the sauce over low heat for 3 to 4 minutes and keep stirring in between. Add chicken stock to loosen the consistency of the sauce.
Now add cooked chicken pieces into the gravy and cook for another five minutes. Garnish with grated parmesan cheese and serve hot with pasta, steamed rice or any bread of your choice.
