Chicken Jurikhois

This recipe of Chicken Jurikhois I came across at Chef's page in Sananda, a popular Bengali magazine. The snapshot of the dish looked tempting enough to turn me on for making an attempt. With a mind open to new recipes, I gave it try last night for dinner. I slightly modified the dish to suit my tastebud, but more or less I have stuck to the original recipe. The output was appetizing and both me & my hubby gobbled it with pleasure.

Ingredients:                                      Cooking time: 30-40 minutes

500 gm boneless chicken

50 gm all purpose flour

250 gm button mushroom (diced)

1 tbs lemon juice

1 tsp of oregano

1) Mix in ginger powder, salt, black pepper, paprika & all purpose flour. Toss the chicken pieces in this mixture and rub well.

2) Now heat butter with a drizzle of olive oil in a non-sticky pan. Lightly fry the chicken pieces in batches one after another and take them off the heat. Keep aside.

3) Now into the same pan fry shallots till they turn translucent. Add button mushroom & stir cook on medium heat for 2 minutes. Add chicken. Cook covered on medium heat for 10 minutes.
