"Fried Chicken" & "Egg Sandwich with Olive & Tomato sauce"

The magical journey of Harry Potter came to a close with the 7th book and yesterday with the first day first show I witnessed the end of a magical celluloid journey. I am so hungover that I have been youtubing HP since then. So instead of an outfit post I am gonna share a couple of easy recipes today. Plus all my pants are currently at the tailor's for altering!
The 1st one is a very common fried chicken recipe
  • standard sized chicken breasts
  • salt,pepper and lime juice(I used a concentrated lime juice available at markets) for marination
  • crushed biscuit for coating (I used standard Marie biscuits)
  • oregano for garnish
 Marinate the chicken and refrigerate for 15 minutes. Heat some oil(so that the butter doesn't get burnt) and butter in a pan (this is not a healthy recipe so use ample amounts of butter following in the footsteps of Nigella Lawson, my goddess!). Coat the chicken pieces with the crushed biscuit and fry the chicken till each side is cooked. The biscuit will give it a yummy crunch and you make it through to the juicy interior. Sprinkle with oregano and serve!

Now the Egg sandwich with olive and tomato sauce is a healthy & light yet tasty.

  • one medium sized peeled and chopped tomato
  • 3-4 olives chopped
  • half a cup water
  • one egg poached
  • one very thin slice of smoked pork
  • white bread
  • salt
  • pepper,cheese(optional)
Boil down the chopped tomato and olives with salt (& pepper) in the water till it is dried up. This takes about 10-12 minutes on high heat. The sauce is ready. Adding a thin layer of butter makes sure the bread on which you will place this sauce does not go soggy, however you can skip using butter. Add the pork slice,sauce and poached egg on top of one another and add a few shavings of cheese if you want. Your sandwich is ready.
This sauce can be used as a time saving pasta sauce for those nights you are too tired to cook up a storm but want something that still satisfies the taste buds.
