Beyond chicken soup for the sore throat .... chicken mince in ketchup & cheese



I made this dish last night for K. Thought it's worth sharing given its the season of sore throats.

It was fairly late and we were a dish short for dinner. I didn't want to order in. Remembered that there was a pack of chicken mince in the freezer. Thawed it in the micro. The rest of the dish took about ten minutes. Here's the recipe:

  • Heat a couple of tablespoons of oil in a nonstick saucepan
  • Once the onions turn translucent, add the chicken mince (250 g)
  • Then add 2 tablespoons of ketchup, which gives the dish a sweetish taste, and same salt
  • Keep patting the meat with a ladle and toss it so that it cooks quickly
  • Once the meat is cooed (turns white from pink) add 2 slices of slim cheese and let this melt. This will add a nice creamish texture which soothes a sore and petulant throat
  • I topped it with some finely chopped bell peppers/ capsicum and the dish was done
Tasted pretty good. As my lunch mate at Fort MumbaiCentral's  dad apparently says, 'cheese ...ketchup ... it has to taste good'. Well it worked for K too and I kept a bit aside for a breakfast filler.
