Chicken Porridge is an Albanian traditional recipe, from the birthplace of Grandma Xheni. She has inherited this recipe from her own grandmother and always prepares it with love and nostalgia. It is a pretty simple recipe to be prepared. The key for its success is to find a high quality fresh chicken (like the one in the photo). Here I go with the recipe:
Ingredients: / Ingredientes:
- 1 fresh chicken / 1 pollo fresco
- 2 soup spoons of durum wheat flour / 2 cucharadas soperas de harina de trigo duro
- some nuts / algunas nueces
- 1 garlic cockroach / 1 cucaracha de ajo
- 50 gr unsalted butter / 50 gr de mantequilla sin sal
- Salt, white pepper. / Sal, pimienta blanca.

Preparation: / Preparación:
Divide the chicken in portions (see the photo above) and put them in a pan with the unsalted butter. Fry the chicken on all sides and as soon as the chicken juice is evaporated, add cold water until the chicken in fully covered; regulate with salt and white pepper. Allow for the preparation to simmer until the chicken is soften. Remove from fire and leave aside covered.
Meanwhile, in a non-sticky pan add the durum wheat flour and fry it in moderate heat, by stirring continuously, until the wheat will turn into gold color.

Remove the pan from the fire and slowly pour on it the chicken broth, until it reaches the right thickness (juicy enough to be considered a consistent soup). Put the pan back to moderate fire and add suppressed garlic and thick-cankered nuts.
As soon as the preparation come to boil, pour it an a baking-pan. Add the chicken portions and put it on pre-heated oven for 40 minutes at 250.

The preparation is ready as soon as the chicken is roasted on the surface. This particular recipe does not require to turn the meat on the other side.
Grandma Xheni’s Recipe for Chicken Porridge should be served immediately not to allow to create the unpleasant layer, that preparations with wheat flour tend to create. You may serve this dish in soup plates or soup bowls, serving one portion of chicken with the porridge aside.
