Healthy, easy & delicious for the whole family !
Behold, the planets have been aligned and I'm back ! Recently our church hosted a conference for married couples and of course my beloved husband and I attended the event without hesitation. I mean how could we say no to the opportunity of learning and improving our marriage !
AND having a great time with the greatest ,,comedian,, on the topic, Mark Gungor !!!!!!
YES he is a pastor, with a very humble heart ( besides those sparkly outfits ). But I believe anyone who listened to him knows that he could easily switch the career. Cuz he's the one who'll make you cheer !!!!!
We had such a good fellowship and time, just be aware that after the conference you might need some ICE packs for your jaws. Cuz you are really gonna laugh your way to a better marriage !!! That being said I also found out a big truth about myself !!! Shocking, ha ! I guess we are never to old for those. I found out that my roots do not come from my home land only. You guys I came from Perfect Country as well !!! And if you ask yourself what's the connection with my Chicken Pate recipe I will gladly explain it to you. You see I kinda had this blog post ready to go a year ago, like many others. But people from Perfect Country, often prepare more in advance...much more than they should ! Everything has to be perfect, the photos, every written detail and on and on ! And most of all it's the planets, yes, they have to be aligned, period.
So with the historic and epic moment of 2017 Total Solar Eclipse, I pounded everything , and decided that the time is now and my Chicken Pate recipe shall be revealed !!!
The chicken pate brings so many memories. Back in the days this used to be a whole year round snack. My favorite time was in the summer, when the pate was accompanied by the fresh home grown tomatoes and peppers. My family used to buy it from the local store but we also had a a home made version with pork liver.
One day I craved this creamy chicken pate but had no idea of the international food stores, at that time and this is how I got creative in the kitchen. I believe that simple means beautiful, and also apply this concept often while in the kitchen.
My first chicken pate had exactly the same ingredients as the recipe below. The recipe is simple and flexible after everyone's taste ! Basically you can add more or less of any of the ingredients. You can also add different spices or fresh herbs for a more robust aroma ! You can enjoy it on bread, toast even as a dip with chips. As far as time consumption, this a perishable food and is nothing I can add because in our house it never lasts more than one day !
My toddlers absolutely love the pate, and we all know how picky they can be !!!
2 cups boiled chicken breast (1 medium chicken breast raw)
3 Tbsp salted butter room temperature
1/2 cup chicken stock
All the ingredients are very simple and easy to be found in every kitchen ! For the preparation of the chicken breast there are two options:
Option 1 : Boil the chicken breast in a medium pot filled with cold water and a pinch of salt.
Option 2 : Boil the chicken breast in a medium pot adding 2 carrots, 1 small onion, 1 parsnip root and a pinch of salt. Which will give you a light chicken stock ;) perfect for a noddle soup later on or needed ingredient for the recipe !
Once all the ingredients are at room temperature, add them to a kitchen blender/ chopper. Also if the pate is to dry feel free to add more chicken stock/ warm water.
And voila , the chicken pate is ready to enjoy !!! I hope y'all give it a try and enjoy it as much as our family does !
