Carne de pui / Chicken

Piept de pui thai / Thai chicken breast

Va spuneam zilele trecute ca va voi povesti mai multe in legatura cu vacanta mea in Belgia. Ei bine, toata lumea stie ca Bruxelles este un oras cosmopolit. Poate din acest motiv imi si place atat de mult. Imi plac oamenii, culturile lor si imi place sa cunosc obiceiurile lor culinare.
Am profitat de aceasta ocazie si mi-am cumparat tot felul de mirodenii, sosuri, dar si produse culinare inedite (pentru mine cel putin).
Dintre aceste produse fac parte si cateva borcanase cu amestecuri pentru sosuri Thai. Am descoperit ca se gaseau si la noi in tara motiv pentru care m-am decis sa gatesc ceva usor si rapid si sa postez reteta.

I was telling you few days ago that I will write more about my holiday in Belgium. Well, everybody knows that Brussels is a cosmopolitan town. Maybe that’s why I love this city so much.  I love people, their cultures and I like to know their culinary habits.
It was a good occasion for me to buy all kinds of spices, sauces, mixes but also some new products (at least for me).

I bought some jars with mixes for Thai sauces. I discovered that I could have found these mixes also in my country so I decided to cook a fast recipe and to post the result.


– 2 lingurite de Kaffir lime leaves (amestec de frunze tocate de limes)
– 2 lingurite de curry verde
– 3 linguri de ulei de masline
– 500 g piept de pui
– 1 piersica mare
– 1 mandarina
– 2 cepe
– 1 ardei mare kapia
– sare
– 150 ml apa

Intr-un bol se amesteca uleiul cu condimentele. Se taie carnea cubulete si se pune impreuna cu uleiul si condimentele si se amesteca. Se pun la frigider pentru 20 minute.
Intre timp se spala, curata si se taie ceapa, mandarina, piersica si ardeiul.
Amestecul de condimente, carne si ulei se pune intr-un wok si se calesc 3-4 minute. Se adauga pe rand ceapa, mandarina, piersica si ardeiul si se inabusesc. Se adauga apoi apa si se lasa cca 15-20 minute pana cand vom obtine un sos.
Se serveste cu orez basmati sau noodles din faina de orez.

– 2 teaspoons of Kaffir lime leaves
– 2 teaspoons of green curry
– 3 spoons of olive oil
– 500 g chicken breast
– 1 big peach
– 1 mandarin orange
– 2 onions
– 1 big paprika
– salt
– 150 ml water
We put the oil and the condiments into a bowl and we mix them. We cut the meat in small pieces and we put it into the bowl and we mix them with the condiments and the oil. We put the recipient into the fridge for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile we wash, peel and cut the onion, the mandarin orange, the peach and paprika.
We put the meat with oil and condiments into a wok and we’ll fry it for 3-4 minutes. After that we’ll add in order the onion, the mandarin orange, the peach and finally, the paprika. We’ll fry them for few minutes and we’ll add the water and let them boil for 15-20 minutes. We will obtain a nice flavored sauce.

We serve this dish with basmati rice or with rice noodles.

Data viitoare am sa indraznesc mai mult. Deocamdata mancarea noastra Thai este pe terminate si se pare ca a avut mult succes.

Next time I will dare to combine more ingredients. For now our Thai food is almost gone and it seems that it had a great success.
