✔ chicken fillet – 3 pcs.
✔ salt – 2 tbsp.
✔ olive oil – 2 tbsp.
✔ garlic – 1 head
✔ pepper, paprika – to taste.
We start making pastrami by washing the chicken fillets and putting them in containers. Pour the water so that it covers the whole fillet with a small reserve. Pour salt into water and stir so that the salt dissolves a little and spreads evenly over the container. Leave it to marinate in the fridge for two hours.
Dry the salted fillet with paper towels.
Now we make small but deep cuts in the chicken and insert the garlic. Then we sprinkle the future pastrami with spices and butter.
We smear everything evenly so that the chicken is completely covered with spices. You can mix the oil and spices in a separate container and then smear the fillet. Place the chicken on a baking tray covered in foil.
We put it in a preheated oven, up to 200-220 degrees. We bake at this temperature for about 15 minutes. Then we turn the oven off, but don’t open it! We leave the dish for the night, or 6-8 hours, in a closed oven. In this cooking mode, the pastrami will bake exactly inside, but will remain juicy enough.
In the morning, or after the necessary time, you will be pleased with a delicate breast, which you can eat alone or with a side dish.
Bon appetit! Don’t starve 😋
