6 Ingredients Or Less (Page 2)
La Dolce Vita: Parmesan Chicken Nuggets
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 cup dried bread crumbs
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1-1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes
1. Place butter in a shallow bowl. Combine the bread crumbs, cheese and salt in another shallow bowl. Dip chicken in butter, then roll in crumbs.
2. Place in a single layer on two 15x10x1-in. baking pans. Bake at 375° for 15-18 minutes or until no longer pink, turning once. Serve with marinara sauce if desired.
PS. Freeze option: Cool chicken nuggets. Freeze in freezer containers. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Place on a baking sheet and reheat in a preheated 375° oven 7-12 minutes or until heated through.
La Dolce Vita: Basic Biscuits (Makes a lot of Biscuits)
500 grams Butter softened to room temperature
395 grams Condensed Milk Sweetened
1 cup Sugar
5 cups Self Raising Flour
Preheat oven 180 degrees.
Cream together the softened butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
Add the condensed milk and sifted self raising flour, mix to form dough.
Add the flavors of your choice (see below) and either cook right away or freeze!
If you are cooking the biscuits right away: Roll into teaspoon sized balls and press down with a fork (dip the fork in flour first so it doesn't stick).
Place on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Bake in oven for 10-15 minutes until golden brown.
Note: For a less 'floury' biscuit - substitute half a cup of flour for 1/2 cup of custard powder.
If you wish to use cookie cutters, add more plain flour to make the dough stiffer.
To Freeze the Dough:
After adding the flavor of your choice, roll the dough into a 20cm 'log' about 4cm or so thick.
Place the cookie dough log onto a sheet of baking paper and roll up.
Twist the ends to seal, use a marker to note the flavor, and place on a flat surface in the freezer for up to four months.
When you want fresh biscuits, preheat the oven to 180 degrees, remove the frozen log from the freezer and whilst still frozen, unwrap and cut into 4mm slices or 'coins'.
Place the frozen dough pieces onto the baking tray and cook as directed

La Dolce Vita: Dear Seri, know that you're a busy lady but really looking forward to your "one country seven plate buffet. I haven't seen the show but your recipes will be like a show to me and will contribute as far as possible. Been to a few places.
seri8888: Hello dear tertia, I am happy to share and to learn recipes from you and others. Sorry the show is an Australian cooking program, and
as far as I know will not be showing in South Africa or any other countries yet.
So, is there any country you would like to look into first ( Italy, India, Lebanon, Vietnam, France, Greece, Venezuela, China, Cameroon and Australia)? You can also add a few recipes from any country not on the list but I try to stick on the list just for myself to make it easier for me.
10.5 oz Skin-on red snapper fish fillet, scaled and pin boned
3 count Avocados (170g / 6oz each)
1 tsp Sea salt
0.5 tsp Pepper
3 count Stalks fresh lemongrass (25g / 0.85 oz each)
10 count Clover garlic
2 tbsp fresh cilantro, finely chopped
2 tbsp Fresh spring onion, finely chopped
2 count Fresh green chillies, thinly sliced (5g / 0.17oz each)
1 count Fresh red chili (5g / 0.17oz each)
1 tbsp Olive oil to pan sear
Marinating fish fillet: Season the fish fillet with salt and pepper. Add crushed chillies and lemongrass stalks. Set it aside.
Making the guacamole: Scoop out 3 ripe avocados. Add chopped chilli, garlic, fresh lime juice and season with salt and pepper. Blend the mixture together until everything is nicely combined. Then, add chopped cilantro and green onion and blend again until smooth.
Pan-searing fish fillet: Heat the pan with some olive oil on medium heat. Add the fish fillet in the pan, skin side down and sear for about 3.5 minutes. Turn over the fillet and sear for another 3 minutes. Make sure the skin side is crispy and the flesh side is opaque. When the fish is almost done, add crushed lemongrass and chilies in the pan and fry until fragrant.
Plating: Scoop out some guacamole on a plate. Place the fish fillet on top and garnished with fried lemongrass, chillies, sliced kumquat, sliced starfruit, and some cilantro.

Fry dice onion till a bit brown add tomato puree and mince garlic
Add mince meat wait till cooked, stirring a few time

Ingredients for 4 people or 4 meals
8 pieces of dark meat chicken (Thighs and Drumsticks)
3 Celery Stalks cut into 1/4 inch pieces
300g mushrooms cubed (Portobello mushrooms preferably)
2 small shallots sliced
2 medium onions cut into 1/8ths
2 sprigs fresh rosemary (optional)
800g crushed tomatoes
extra virgin oil to cover the bottom of the pot
flour for dredging
salt and black pepper
Season the chicken with salt and black pepper. Dredge all the pieces of chicken with flour. Set aside
In a large Dutch Oven brown the chicken in the oil 2-3 minutes on each side. Set aside on a paper towel lined plate
In the remaining oil, add the rosemary sprig and saute about 2 minutes
Add the celery and onions and saute until the edges begin to brown, about 3-5 minutes.
Add the chicken back to the pot.
Add the tomatoes. Bring to a boil and simmer.
Salt to taste. Cover and simmer about 5 minutes for the mushrooms to soften. Uncover until sauce is reduced and chicken is tender about 15 mins.
Remove the rosemary sprig and serve.
*Tip- add salad as side dish to add more vegetables in diet
This dish can also be serve with pasta or any one of the other carbohydrates such as rice, potatoes (boil, bake, mashed, chips/fry), bread -the usual white slice but I always prefer the taste of wholemeal or ciabatta, baguette, flatbread either Italian piadina, pita, lebanese even Indian like chapati or pratha.
