Wonderful pie with yogurt, who does not like it! I admit that we love it, which is why today a yogurt and raisins pie has appeared on the Happy Dish Club website, among other wonderful dishes.
It is not difficult to prepare, we do not need who knows-what sophisticated ingredients, but the result, yyyeeeiiii result is DELICIOUS !!
I used thin sheets of pie (phyllo pastry), that we find in almost all supermarkets and have a very good price, yogurt with more fat, many eggs and sweetened whole composition with sugar and give it flavor with vanilla sugar and raisin, because without raisin is not yogurt pie.
These delicate Choux a la creme or you may know it like Cream Puffs I prepare them dearly, especially when I make them in miniature.

Eating Pea stew with chicken meat is among the most common and the most prepared in my kitchen, something makes me think that maybe yours too. Not surprised me because it is so simple to prepare, it is not expensive and is very good. Especially if you find fresh peas at the market because that is sweet and fresh, frozen one is not too bad too. Besides, I like to put peas and many other vegetables in it, the list below as you see I have not stingy with them, why would I do it ?! So good and give so much taste. As I had chicken meat I fry it a little in a pan, to gain color and not have blood, but you can boil the meat separately if you like. Besides the dish, salad you need for a perfect combination and if it is a little sour, meaning a beetroot salad or one of pickles the better. You can watch right here how I prepare this meal!!!
Ingredients for Pea stew with chicken meat
1 kg frozen peas
a large onion and because I had a couple of green one I added that too
a slice of celery root
1 parsley root
one bell pepper
200 grams of peeled and chopped tomatoes , tomato juice or 2 tablespoons tomato paste
one chicken breast
1 bay leaf
2-3 tablespoons oil
1 l water or broth
In a saucepan put a little bit of oil to heat, then add all the vegetables to softens, but not burn. After about 5 minutes and add the peas and fill with water or broth and let simmer. If you purchased peas that is hard to a boil, is best to boil separately until soften and after this add it over the vegetable, or you'll get bored boiling it. It happened to me a few times, I bought a hard one and even if I boil it for more than an hour or so, it still seemed hard. So you should always buy that one that you bought before. Meanwhile, in a skillet with a little hot oil, fry the chicken breasts cut into smaller pieces and seasoned well. When peas and vegetables are boiled, season with salt, pepper and add the tomatoes and roasted meat. Leave food on the fire until the sauce reduces because I do not like thicken the sauce with flour. Finally sprinkle dill. Please visit me again or watch me on Youtubechannel, or on Facebook, and if you like my recipes don’t hesitate to Subscribeand Like!!!
