Another weekend to explore my love for food, and my culinary skills. Although, this is not just another weekend, but the last weekend of 2011. So I decided to welcome the year 2012 with a special dish.

This is my own version of Italian Chicken. It is easy to make, and will not take up much of your precious new year's eve time.

So here we go.



  1. Marinade the chicken with vinegar and 1 tsp of ginger-garlic paste, and set it aside for at least half an hour.
  2. In a bowl, mix cornflour with salt and half of the Italian spices.
  3. Heat butter and 1 tbsp oil in a pan.
  4. Mix the marinaded chicken thoroughly with the cornflour mixture.
  5. Fry the chicken on medium to high heat for about 5-7 minutes.
  6. Remove it from the fire, and set it aside on a paper napkin so that the extra oil is eliminated.
  7. Heat the rest of the oil in the pan.
  8. Add the rest of the ginger-garlic paste, and fry it till slightly brown.
  9. Add the crushed tomatoes, and the tomato ketchup.
  10. Let it simmer for a few minutes.
  11. Add the onions, salt, and the rest of the Italian spices, along with the fried chicken.
  12. Add the honey.
  13. Add about a cup of water.
  14. Bring the mixture in the pan to a boil, and then simmer it until the chicken is cooked.
  15. Serve and relish.

Go ahead, try it out this new year!

Wow, Senoritaa, I could smell the aroma from afar :D Yummy! Almost like my dad's recipe but w/o flour and honey. Instead he added 1 tsp of curry powder, black pepper and sprinkle sliced jalapeno peppers.

Anyway, yours look interesting. Have to give it a try. Thanks so much, Senoritaa, for sharing this wonderful recipe.

U/A/I Up,up and away!

Happy New Year to you!

Best Wishes, Verita

I know it is delicious, I make something like this but with the Italian herbs, instead I add a ramba leaf or rampe leaf and a bunch of mint for flavor and it is yummy!

Oh is it? Then I guess I have to try your recipe. I love mint, haven't tried ramba leaf. Thanks for visiting and sharing
