Tortilla with Chicken and Avocado salsa/Tortilja s piletinom i avokado salsom

Last week it was all about baking flatbreads, pita breads, tortillas…I am fast food lovers but not a kind to be addicted to the Mc, Dc, Nc….I just love it homemade and more healthy…..and this time I baked with black whole grain flour. I was worried if breads are going to be dry because I did not mix any white flour, but it was perfectly soft for two days (it did not manage to wait any longer :)). The secret is to cover them straight after baking with aluminum foil. I was thinking to make scampi but at the end I decided to bake chicken breast with honey and sesame, salad and sprouts, aromatic and fresh avocado-mango salsa with fresh ginger.

Do not be afraid with so much chili and ginger in my recipe, how spicy and aromatic is going to be is your decision. Just to mention, if you are using Habanero pepper, be careful, it is very hot. At the beginning put little bit in salsa, let it rest for one hour to release spiciness. Taste and add some more if it is not spicy enough for you. At the end, it is the most important to reach taste balance that suit you.

Tortilla

200g black whole grain flour

110-125 ml lukewarm water

½ pack of dried yeast

Salt and coarse ground pepper

30 g butter

Ground chili

Mix all ingredients and knead dough. Let it rise in a warm place. Make 4-6 balls (depends on how big tortillas would like to have) and roll out with rolling pin very thin circle.

Pita bread

200g black whole grain flour

110-125 ml lukewarm water

½ pack of dried yeast

1 tbsp sugar

Salt, coarse ground pepper

Ground ginger and cumin

Mix all ingredients together and knead dough. Let it rise at the warm place. Make 4-6 balls (depends of how big pita bread you want to make) and roll out circle, but not very thin (you are supposed to cut baked pita bread in half in order to fill it with chicken and salsa). Bake it on a hot frying pan without fat until it gets nice color.

-Croatian version-

Zadnjih tjedan dana sam u pečenju lepinja, pita kruha i tortilja…nekako mi je fast food kriza i rekoh bolje da ja to po domaći nego da pravim promet u Mc, Dc i Nc….pa sam se upustila u avanturu tortilja i pita kruha od crnog punozrnog brašna. Malo me brinulo hoće li tortilja i pita kruh biti presuhi i lomljivi jer nisam htjela miješati punozrno crno brašno s bijelim, ali eksperiment se isplatio. Bile su izvrsne i mekane čak i slijedeći dan. Tajna je u prekrivanju svježe pečenih tortilja i pita s alu folijom. Za punjenje sam se dvoumila između škampi i piletine, ali sam se sjetila svoje omiljene kombinacije sezama i meda koji izvrsno idu uz piletinu pa je odluka bila laka, a uz salatu i klice točku na i stavila je osvježavajuća i aromatična salsa od avokada i manga sa svježim đumbirom. Neka vas ne uplaši korištenje čilija i đumbira na više mjesta, ljutinu i aromatičnost određujete sami, dodajte po okusu. Uz napomenu da pažljivo koristite Habanero papriku jer je jako ljuta. Nasjeckajte prvo malu količinu u saslu i pustite sat vremena da odstoji, pustit će ljutinu i tada po okusu eventualno dodajte još. Bitno je na kraju da dobijete balans okusa koji vama odgovara.

Tortilja

200g crnog, punozrnog brašna

110-125 ml mlake vode

Pola vrećice praška za pecivo

Sol i krupno mljeveni papar

30 g otopljenog maslaca

Mljeveni čili

Od navedenih sastojaka umijesiti tijesto i ostaviti na toplom da se udvostruči. Oblikovati 4-6 kuglica (ovisno o željenoj veličini tortilje) te razvaljati u tanki krug. Peći na vrućoj tavi bez masnoće. Čim su pečene premazati s malo maslinovog ulja i prekriti aluminijskom folijom da ostanu mekane.

Pita brot

200g crnog punozrnog brašna

110-125 ml mlake vode

½ pakiranja suhog kvasca

Malo šećera

Jušna žlica maslinovog ulja

Sol, krupno mljeveni papar

Mljeveni đumbir i kumin

Sve sastojke sjediniti i umijesiti tijesto. Ostaviti da se diže na toplome mjestu. Formirati 4-6 kuglica (ovisno koju veličinu lepinje želite dobiti) te valjkom razvaljati u krug, ali ne pretakno kako bi se lepinja mogla nakon pečenja prerezati i puniti nadjevom. Peći na vrućoj tavi bez masnoće. Pečene lepinje premazati s malo maslinovog ulja i preklopiti aluminijskom folijom kako bi ostale mekane.

Avocado-Mango salsa

Avocado

½ Manga

2 rajčice

Svježi čili

Ribani svježi đumbir

Svježiđumbir sitno naribati. Vlasac sitno narezati. Sve sastojke sjediniti i začiniti sa soli, paprom, sokom i koricom limete i maslinovim uljem.

Marinada za piletinu:

Med, limeta, mljeveni čili, maslinovo ulje, sol, papar, mljeveni đumbir, worcherster umak

Sve sastojke sjediniti i marinirati 300g na srednje velike komade narezana pileća prsa. Nakon mariniranja, piletinu staviti u cjedilo da se višak marinade ocijedi te ispeći u tavi na ulju (pola maslinovog pola suncokretovog ulja). Čim je pečeno uvaljati u umak od meda, limete, mljevenog đumbira i mljevenog čilija te uvaljati u tostirane sezam sjemenke.
