Homemade Japanese Curry Rice (Kare Raisu)

Curry comes in multiple forms, not just from Thailand and India. This curry is Japanese and a bit sweeter than its cousins. The author suggests that you use your own spice blend instead of a store bought one to control the taste and give it a richer flavor, even toasting them a bit to bring out those aromatics. This will build even more when fried in oil before adding to the stew, a delicious combo of chicken, onion, carrots, potatoes and garnished with sweet apples to give it texture and more sweetness.

Key Takeaways:

  • Japanese curry is a very popular comfort food in Japan.
  • You need a spice grinder and a dutch oven to make this recipe.
  • You need a good amount of ingredients in order to make the curry.

“This recipe captures a classic Japanese curry, complete with juicy pieces of chicken, tender nubbins of carrot, sweet peas, and silky chunks of potato, but it’s seasoned with a homemade spice blend that’s way better than what comes out of a tin.”

Rich and Flavorful Chicken Soup

Bone broth is one of the hottest healthy dishes you can make and it is incredibly easy. This recipe starts with a fresh chicken instead of using parts of an already roasted chicken. This allows you the opportunity to poach the breasts without drying them out by roasting. The important part is to watch the temperature. It needs to finish around 150 degrees Fahrenheit to ensure the chicken is cooked and has enough time to impart all that flavor to the broth.

Key Takeaways:

  • This recipe explains to the reader how to make a simple traditional chicken soup.
  • The first key to this recipe is to cold-poach the chicken, then remove it until the end. This preserves the texture.
  • A second key is the use of stock, which creates a deep flavor.

“Chicken soup is exactly what you need whether to soothe a cold or just to warm your bones.”

Skillet Chicken Cordon Bleu

Making chicken cordon bleu is normally a time-intensive process. Breading, stuffing, baking. All of that takes the time that could be used elsewhere in the kitchen, house, family or even work. This shortcut takes a lot of the fun out of cutting into the creamy, cheesy pocket, but still gives you all the taste. The secret is to layer the ham and cheese on the chicken, like an open-faced grilled cheese. The chicken is cooked in a skillet, the ham and cheese are added, and then it is served that way.

Key Takeaways:

  • Chicken Cordon Bleu is a timeless dish that people will enjoy eating. Breaded chicken breast is cooked in a skillet to the perfect texture.
  • Remember to top the chicken breast with ham and cheese as well. That will complete the recipe and get it tasting good for guests.
  • Be sure to heat the skillet and cook using the right technique too. That will heat the meat and prevent cool spots from spoiling the dish.

Cranberry Trifle

Trifles are a traditional layered dessert made with alternating layers of fruit, cream, and cake. This one takes that normal recipe but adds cranberry to give it a bit of tang and a new take on the traditional berry versions you would often see.

Instead of cream, they are using whipped mascarpone, a cream cheese like Italian dish, often used in tiramisu.

Roasted Strawberries

Roasting strawberries is probably not something you think about. It is a quick thing to do with underripe fruit or those late winter strawberries that you get from the hothouse that may not be the best. Roasting, like it does for vegetables, helps caramelize the sugars in the fruit. It will make the strawberries sweeter and add some complex flavors to any dish. This recipe uses more than just the fruit to roast them, adding in vanilla, lemon, and sugar to help the caramelization and add extra flavor to a finished dish.

Key Takeaways:

  • Roasting caramelizes fruits and vegetables, bringing out natural sugars and intensifying flavor
  • You can roast things alone or as a quick dish to help perk up the flavor
  • Using sugar and lemon helps to give it extra bite and more sugar to caramelize

“Roasting intensifies the strawberry flavor and tenderizes firm, under-ripe fruit.”
