Chicken cutlets in the oven are moretasty than fried in a skillet. They are very easy to cook chicken, which today is in the refrigerator at any housewife. This is a recipe of Russian cuisine: chicken cutlets, breaded in bread crumbs and cooked in the oven, they are called "Pozharsky cutlets". These burgers are pretty interesting story.
As the memories of the German Ambassador to theRussia, inventor "Pozharsky" cutlets was Daria Evdokimovna Pozharskaya. One Russian tsar (we are talking about Alexander I) stopped while traveling in the city Ostashkovo, where he ordered a breakfast in the restaurant of a tradesman Pozharsky. The king wanted to get breakfast veal cutlets.
The owner of the restaurant, my husband Darya, was in despair becauseas I could not get high-quality veal in such a short time. At the same time, he could not disobey, and ignore the wishes of such a high guest.
Daria suggested her husband to cook cutletschicken, instead of beef, and serve the dish to the monarch, without going into details. Pozharsky saw no other exit, and reasonably decided that it is better to use fresh chicken, rather than poor quality veal.
Innkeeper brilliantly coped with his task: he cooked soft chicken cutlets, breaded in bread crumbs and white fried in butter in an oven, and gave to the king for breakfast.
The king approved the dish. He has decided to award the innkeeper for a delicious breakfast. Fearing exposure, Pozharsky decided to admit that he used for meatballs is not veal, and chicken white meat. He told the king that it was the reason for such action, and asked the Emperor not to judge him harshly.
The king was pleased with the honesty of the owner and decidedthat award was they really earned. Since that day, chicken burgers have become a part of the imperial menu, where they appeared under the name "Pozharsky cutlets". This is a royal today and we will prepare a dish.
Ingredients for "Chicken cutlets in the oven":
- 500 g chicken breast (or 500 g of finished minced chicken);
- 250 g of white wheat loaf;
- half a glass of warm milk;
- 6 tablespoons. tablespoons unsalted butter;
- half a teaspoon of salt;
- ? teaspoon black pepper;
- half a cup of breadcrumbs (or a little more if necessary);
- 1 clove of garlic (crushed);
- 2 tbsp. tablespoons vegetable oil;
- 100g mozzarella cheese (or suluguni).
Recipe "chicken cutlets in the oven":
In a small bowl, soak the bread in warm milk. Put yet it aside. Cut the cheese into separate small oblong pieces, set aside.
I prefer to make your own chicken minced chicken breast.
If you are ready to beef, it must still pass through a meat grinder, and then grind in a meat grinder previously soaked bread - just after the chicken.
For a better quality of minced meat and more tender meatballs, mince chicken and bread again.
Put the ingredients in a large bowl and add salt and pepper. If you are using chops garlic, add it to the mix, too. Hands thoroughly mix all ingredients.
Form patties. Chicken minced quite sticky. At times it becomes difficult to form the patties with your bare hands. Therefore, working with minced meat, put his hand under the bowl of water so that after each cutlet dipped his hands into the water.
Just dip your hands into the water, then grab a piece of meat the size of a tennis ball. Form a ball, put it on a piece of cheese press the cheese in the middle of the meat ball.
Somknite hand chops and make a meat "pie" with cheese inside.
Make sure that the cheese looks.
Obkatat cutlets in breadcrumbs on all sides.
Place the ready chops on a separate plate.
On medium heat, melt the butter in a frying pan. The use of vegetable oil is not mandatory. I add it only 1-2 spoons, in order to prevent the butter from burning.
As you probably know, butter has a tendency to burn quickly. Adding some vegetable oils, can be more or less in the pan to prevent scorching.
Once the butter has melted, add the vegetable oil, and begin to fry patties in a frying pan for about 3 minutes on each side (or until golden).
After frying in a skillet, place the cutletsin refractory cruet stand. Preheat the oven to 175 oC and place a container with meatballs in the oven for 15-20 minutes. This time will be enough to fully cook the chops.
After this time, remove the dish from the oven and serve burgers with your favorite side dish and salad.
