Chicken ragout with kohlrabi

by | Sep 2, 2022 | Meat dishes

Chicken ragout with kohlrabi was an old Hungarian recipe that had been forgotten over the past 100 years. It was published for the first time in a cookbook written by Ágnes Zilahy in 1891. In the original recipe every part of the chicken was cooked, not only thighs or breasts, and the dish was only seasoned with salt, pepper and parsley. I make the ragout with chicken thigh fillets and more herbs.

Hungarian cottage cheese

This is what Hungarian túró looks like

You often ask me what kind of cottage cheese (or curd cheese or farmer's cheese - call it what you want) I use in the recipes. In Hungary the store-bought cottage cheese is dry and crumbly as you can see in the picture. So if a recipe calls for túró, I mean this type. If you can't obtain túró, you can try to make your own from whole milk. Click on the link below.

Metric system vs cup

In Hungary metric units are in use, all the recipes on this website are based on this system, so a kitchen scale is necessary. Since I’m not familiar with cup as a measurement unit, I convert grams to cups by using an online converter. The values in brackets, therefore, are only approximate volumes, so, please, double-check them before you start cooking.
