CHICKEN EMPANADA

Ingredients

Filling
• 1 1/2 lb boneless chicken breast, cut into cubes
• 1 piece medium-sized onion, minced
• 1 tbsp garlic, minced
• 1 cup potato, diced
• 1 cup carrot, diced
• 1 cup green peas
• 1/4 cup raisins
• 1/2 tsp salt
• 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
• 1 tsp sugar
• 1/2 piece chicken cube
• 2 tbsp cooking oil

Dough
• 3 cups flour
• 4 tbsp sugar
• 6 tbsp water, cold
• 1 piece raw egg
• 1 cup butter, cold
• 1/2 tsp baking powder
• 1/2 tsp salt

Cooking Procedure

Make the Filing by pouring the cooking oil in a pan and then allow it to heat-up. Once the oil is hot, sauté the garlic and onions.  Add the chicken breast then cook until color turns light brown (about 5 minutes). Add water and chicken cube then simmer for 10 minutes. Put-in carrots and potatoes and simmer for 5 minutes. Add the green peas, raisins, and sugar then simmer for another 5 minutes. Sprinkle salt and pepper. Turn off the heat, drain the excess liquid, and set aside.

Make the dough by combining the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl starting with the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Mix well using a wire whisk. Cut the butter into small thin pieces place in the mixing bowl with the dry ingredients.(the butter should be cold and solid before doing this).  Add water gradually and mix all the ingredients thoroughly until dough is formed. You may use a pastry blender to ease the process. Divide the dough into individual pieces by grabbing a piece from the whole mixture and rolling it in your hand until a spherical shape is formed. Do this until all the dough is consumed. Set aside in a cool place for at least 20 minutes. Flatten the spherical dough py pressing it with your palm against a flat surface. Use a rolling pin to flatten it fully while creating a round shape.

Arrange about a quarter to half a cup of filling (the chicken that you cooked in the first few steps) at the middle of the flattened dough. Fold the dough so that opposite ends meet (you should have formed half moon shaped dough) then press the edges and seal. (refer to the video for the technique). After all the fillings are consumed, crack the egg and separate the white from the yolk. Beat the egg white lightly and mix a little water. Glaze the crust by brushing the egg wash. Put a wax paper on top of a baking tray or grease the baking tray then arranged the sealed dough’s. Pre-heat oven at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 minutes. Bake the sealed dough’s for 25 minutes at the same temperature. Remove from the oven. Serve hot. Share and Enjoy!

BUSINESS IDEA WELL THOUGHT OFF

The idea just came in few days ago, selling add-ons accessories of motorcycles and motorbikes online. I had wanted to put up an online business the past few years but I had been having a hard time deciding on to what kind of products I would sell. There are a lot of factors that I consider that is why I’ve had a hard time. Selling add-ons accessories of motorcycles and motorbikes is the one idea that had passed to my criteria and I would discuss those on a different entry. I am just so happy that I get to start an online business and be happy with my decision because it is an idea well thought off.

Halo halo is a refreshing Filipino dish especially created for hot climates. It can be served after meals like a traditional dessert, or as a delicious treat in the middle of a long, hot summer afternoon. The eclectic combination of fruits makes halo halo great fun for a summer get-together.

Halo halo

Ingredients:

  • Vanilla ice cream

Prepare the strawberry gelatin as directed on the box, but cut the amount of water in half. Refrigerate the gelatin until it sets up.

Use a melon baller to prepare the honeydew melon, cantaloupe and papaya, and put it into a cooler or punch bowl. Stir in the shredded coconut.

Cut the strawberry gelatin into squares the size of dice, and add it to the fruit mixture along with the tapioca and banana.

Place the ice cream in a large bowl and smooth it into a thick paste with a large spoon, a potato masher or your bare hands. Scoop large spoonfuls of the ice cream into the fruit mixture, and put crushed ice over the top.

GRADUATING COUSINS

I have a couple of cousins that will graduate this year. I am really happy and excited for them. This is one proof that time really flies fast. I still remember when I used to baby sit them now they are all grown up and will be facing the real world of adulthood. I can’t help but be proud. I decided to give them gifts on their graduation. They love headphones so I would probably give them beats by dre studio. I know they will be ecstatic about this gift because we are all a fan of this headphone brand. I hope that my gift would give them a good luck facing the real world of adulthood.
