Chinese Sweet And Sour Chicken

With fermented black beans for an umami laden twist.

I think the chinese sweet and sour chicken we know is as chinese as chicken tikka masala is indian: not at all! Despite it’s lack of authenticity, it’s still a delicioius dish. I added a special ingredient to make things more interesting and nudge it a little more back to China.

Stuffed Paprika

Note on the side: Alexa -our official recipe guinea-pig- tested the stuffed paprika and did like them. She was quite sad that the recipe would not appear on the blog until now.

Paprika Chicken

A Viennese classic made cut-friendly.

Paprika Hendl (“Hendl” is Austrian slang for chicken) is a typical Viennese dish rich in, not surprisingly, paprika, the dried and ground red bell peppers that were so popular due to the Austro-Hungarian empire. And paprika is still very popular, in certain parts of Austria you don’t have salt and pepper on the table, there is salt and paprika. Normally there are loads of fatty sour cream in this dish, making it not exactly a weightloss friendly dish, but I changed things up a little and it works beautifully. Give it a try!
