  5. Dried chili pepper 2 pieces (or to taste)

  8. Pepper optional
  • Main ingredients: Onion, Carrot, Tomato, Chicken
  • Portion4-5


Frying pan, kitchen knife, spatula, cutting board, knife for cleaning vegetables, disposable paper towels, blender.

Cooking chicken drumsticks in tomato sauce:

Step 1: fry the onions.

Put the pan to heat by pouring vegetable oil into it. Meanwhile, peel the onion from the husk and crumble it into thin half rings, and then drop everything into the hot oil. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally.

Step 2: add the carrots.

While the onion is fried, peel the carrots from the skin, rinse it and cut into thin circles. You can grate if you have time or if you like better.
Throw the prepared carrots in the pan to the onion and continue to fry everything until soft.

Step 3: add the chicken.

Chicken legs should be completely thawed and thoroughly washed. After washing, dry them from moisture and place in a hot pan over vegetables.

Fry a little drumstick on both sides so that they change color and in some places are covered with a golden brown.
Watch the fire, it should not be too strong (otherwise everything will burn) or too weak (nothing will be fried).

Step 4: add the tomatoes.

Grind canned tomatoes in your own juice with a blender, add finely chopped chili peppers, salt and ground pepper to taste. Pour the resulting sauce into a pan for chicken and vegetables. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer over medium-low heat for 10-15 minutes, that is, until the chicken is ready.
Important: if you want to make the tomato sauce thick, add a little wheat flour, previously diluted in hot water.

Step 5: serve chicken drumsticks in tomato sauce.

Serve chicken drumsticks in tomato sauce as soon as remove the pan from the heat. Of course, in which case they can be warmed up, but it seems to me that right after cooking they are most delicious. As a side dish, everything is the same as usual: rice, potatoes, mashed potatoes, buckwheat, pasta. Hearty, simple, no frills!
Enjoy your meal!

Recipe Tips:

- Instead of canned tomatoes, you can use tomato paste or natural tomato juice with pulp. And be careful in this case with salt, you must definitely check how salty the juice or pasta is.
