Coxinha De Galinha (mock Chicken Legs) Recipe! #tipit #brazilianrecipes
Food & Drink
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
Oil to fry
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 :)
