Twice cooked lemon hen and pasta.
Right here’s my conventional Cypriot “kota me makaronia” with a twist for the fantastic month of
Most likely my households favorite dish, particularly within the colder months.
We begin by poaching a complete hen in a big pot, to that we add the juice of three lemon’s, salt, pepper and a touch of olive oil. Prepare dinner the hen for not less than 30 minutes.
Historically, you’d serve the hen up alongside aspect the pasta with some further lemon. At present, I spiced it up (as soon as poached) and calmly pan fried it with crushed garlic, extra lemon juice and olive oil. That crispy pores and skin 🤤
It doesn’t finish there people, it’s concerning the pasta 😋
That goodness that the hen was poached in? Properly you add some pasta to it, slightly extra olive oil, one other juice of 1 lemon and let it cook dinner to al dente.
Serve it up with a few of that positive inventory, and grated Haloumi or pecorino cheese.
Take pleasure in 😊
