GeekFood #10: “Aussie Speedies!”


Tonight’s recipe comes from Josh in Australia. This stuff is amazing! Totally worth your kitchen time. The whole family was down with this one and we can’t recommend it enough. Here are the P’s and Q’s.

Chicken breast
Pita/Mountain bread (ie, the circles of bread used in a wrap?)
Capsicums (I’m not sure if that’s what you call them… peppers maybe? They come in red yellow and green)
Chili powder
Chili sauce

Ok, here’s the important bit, prep… I’ll write it out in the order I do it, because it’s the one that gets it going easily.

Bring a flat frying pan to heat, then add oil. Have cut up your potatoes – this can vary from 1 – 5 or more depending on the quantity – then add the potatoes to the pan. While they’re frying – make sure to toss them while they’re in the oil – cut up the onion, capsicums – preferably two kinds – and then add them to the pan. In this order, because the potatoes take longer to cook than they do. Bring them close to fully cooked, before turning them out in to a bowl for a little bit.

While you’ve cooked the onion, etc, have cut up your breast piece of chicken in to very small cubes. Add some more oil to the pan, let it heat, then throw in a whole heap of chili powder. Swirl it round, then throw in the chicken. Make sure the heat is up, and sear the chicken, making sure it turns white on all sides, before adding back in to the pan the veggies from before.

That won’t take long to finish cooking, so have your circles of pita bread laid out on plates. Spread a generous (or appropriate amount) of chili sauce over it like you would tomato sauce on a pizza base. The sauce can vary depending on how hot you want it, what I want to make mine perfect is something thick and extremely hot. Then simply turn the contents of the pan out on to the bread, making a sizeable row of it in the middle of the bread, so that you will be able to wrap it up afterwards.

There it is! Let us know what you think! And send your recipe ideas to us! GeekFood at Gmail dot com. 🙂
