Kibbeh

Hello Readers and Happy Monday,

Today I would like to talk about a traditional middle eastern “croquette” called Kibbeh. It is a hearty dish packed with flavor, and pretty healthy not too mention very satisfying. This was made for a client who wanted to try something out of their comfort zone, nutrient dense and healthy!

Kibbeh is made with bulgur a common wheat variant used in countries like Pakistan, Armenia, India, Cyprus and more along the middle east and Mediterranean basin. The bulgur is soaked in water than combined with onions and warm spices such as cinnamon, cumin, clove, nutmeg and salt and pepper; finally choice of ground meat that is blended into a paste in a food processor. All the ingredients are mixed together formed into mini footballs and baked for 20 mins. Served with cherry tomato, arugula and tzatziki sauce.

If you know anyone who wants their meal prep to include international dishes that may be a little different I would Love to chat with them!

Thanks for reading and until next time, Cheers!

Chicken Piccata

Recently I have had many orders of the classic chicken piccata. This dish is lemony and bright, perfect for bringing to a party or for dinner. It is pretty fast and can be done in about an hour. I decided to share the recipe with you!


Here is a finished chicken piccata for a recent meal prep customer.

MEP

  • Chicken breast
  • Flour
  • Salt/pepper
  • Lemons
  • White wine
  • Capers
  • Parsley
  • Olive oil
  • Butter
  • Chicken stock

MOP

  1. Zest and cut lemons.
  2. Slice chicken breast into thin pieces or save some time and buy already sliced chicken cutlets.
  3. Season chicken with salt and pepper both sides
  4. Pour 1 cup of flour into a bowl and season flour with salt and pepper
  5. In a sauté pan pour about 1 tbsp on olive oil and a half tbsp (1/2tbsp) of butter. Turn heat to medium high.
  6. Take the sliced chicken breast and coat both sides in flour.
  7. Once the butter is melted and the oil butter mixture is hot (about 2 to 3 min) place chicken in the pan and cook for 4 mins on each side flipping only once.
