Zergut Chicken or What I Found in My Fridge

Zergut Chicken or What I Found in my Fridge
You may know that I have mentioned in the past that I am not good at cooking for myself. However because I have started a blog I feel compelled to at least try. Otherwise there really isn’t much point to this, is there?  Anyway about a week ago I raided my fridge and what you see is what I had for dinner. Not bad if I say so myself. A recent discovery of mine is Zergut Lutenica, a chunky relish. It is made in Bulgaria. I didn’t know Bulgaria made anything-but I guess they do. It is a wonderful spicy sweet, natural tomato, carrot, pepper relish. Actually, when I do impulse purchases at the grocery I always check the ingredients first. If they sound good, I figure it is a worth a try. After all, it never hurts to have a few convenience foods available. I found it at a middle eastern grocery. My guess is you might be able to find it at Trader Joe’s but we don’t have one in Denver. (Sigh)
Ignore the focus!
You could do lots of things with this. I think it would be great served with goat’s cheese and crackers. Oh, it would be a divine spread on a sandwich and yes it is good just on a spoon if you are so inclined. I decided it would make a great chicken parmesan kind of thing so this is what I did. It was quick and satisfied me and I probably will keep it in my repertoire for when my husband returns.
And speaking of husband; this is what he sent me. It seems it was American night in South Africa.  Pay particular attention to the use of the American flag. And also how they worship Coke. And please note that I think he is an even worse photographer than me. Maybe he had too much of that American Jack Daniels. And Coke.I was very happy with my Zergut Chicken. I hope he was happy with his Life
Fish, Cowboy Stew or Crumbed Chicken. Maybe he had the carved meat loaf. Or the hot dog bar. Yum. I’ll just bet he wished he had Zergut Chicken. From Bulgaria, no less.

Ignore the sausage!

Zergut Chicken  (for 1)
1 Chicken Breast
Chopped garlic from a jar (I said I raided my fridge)
Salt and Pepper
Fresh Grated Parmesan
Zergut Chopped Relish
Leftover Olive Bread
Leftover Asparagus
Take the chicken and coat it well wilth the garlic from a jar. Season it with salt and pepper. Grill it until almost done.
Brush thick sliced bread with some garlic oil from jar. Grill it, too.Watch carefully so it doesn’t burn. Bread has a tendency to do that.
Take your leftover cooked asparagus spears and reheat them on the grill. They taste better that way anyway.
Now go back to your chicken and set it in a little tinfoil. Put a good dollop of Zergut on top and sprinkle with cheese. Shut grill and let melt.
Now take your bread and top it with the chicken. Take a bite. I know you know what is coming… IT IS SO ZERGUT!!!
The Coke Shrine. Apparently they don’t like Diet Coke.
Told you!

    Never heard of Zergut – but I love hearing about new foods! I'll have to look for it. Interesting recipe. Can't compete with that meatloaf or hot dog bar, of course, and that's a compliment! Really fun post – thanks.

    Well thanks, Mr. Riffs. I'm not sure how interesting, but it worked! They didn't appear to like the marshmallows but I'll keep plugging! You are very kind. And you will like the Zergut.

    You might start a Zergut Crazy if you're not careful! 🙂 Looks like a very nice dinner for one…full of flavour I'm guessing. Thanks for the post, Cheers, Johanna.
