Coxinha De Galinha (mock Chicken Legs) Recipe! #tipit #brazilianrecipes

posted in Food & Drink > Recipes
  • Ingredients

    1 large chicken, about 3 pounds
    1 bay leaf
    1 medium onion
    1 tsp salt
    1 clove minced garlic
    1 chipped tomato (without skin or seeds)
    1 tbsp chopped parsley
    5 large potatoes
    1 egg beaten
    2 1/2 cups of flour
    Bread crumbs
    Oil to fry

  • Directions

    Cook the chicken with the chopped onion, garlic, salt and parsley and bay leaf. When tender, remove from broth and either add water or boil down to 1 cup. Save 1 tbsp chopped onion to use later.

    Peel the potatoes and boil until tender. Mash the potatoes. Beat the egg and add to the potatoes. Add 1/2 cup of the chicken broth to the mashed potato mixture and salt to taste. Add 2-3 cups of flour. It should look like bread dough. Set aside.

  • Remove the chicken from the bones and skin and cut the chicken meat into small pieces. Thicken the other 1/2 cup chicken broth with a little flour. Add the cut up chicken to make the filling.

    Make the dough into small circles about 2 inches by 2 inch in diameter. Place a spoon full of filling on the circle and close and shape to look like a chicken leg. Roll in bread crumbs and deep fry. Insert decorated tooth pick into narrow end.

  • Original recipe can be found on the cooking book A Taste Of Brazil by Gary Neeleman and Rose Neeleman :)
