'Coxinha' - Portuguese Little Drumsticks


Very popular snack in Portugal and Brazil. Take some time for making, but very economical. Makes around 50.

Ingredients:
3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
85 g butter
2 beef cubes
salt & freshly ground black pepper
2 green onions, finely chopped
2 tbs chopped fresh parsley
700 g flour
200 g cream cheese
1 egg + 1 egg white, beaten lightly
breadcrumbs
oil for deep frying
Method:
Cut chicken breasts into 2 inch cubes, and place in a saucepan with onion, garlic, margarine, stock cubes, salt and pepper and 3 cups of water. Cook over medium heat for 30 minutes or until done. Strain solids from broth, retaining broth and solids.
Finely chop the chicken to make the filling. Add the parsley and chopped green onion to the chicken.
Measure the remaining broth into a saucepan-you will need 3 cups, so make it up with extra water, if needed. Add all the flour, and stir vigorously with a wooden spoon for 1 minute until it becomes stiff. Turn out on a working surface. Allow to cool a little, but while it is still warm, knead dough until it is smooth and no lumps of flour remain. Roll out dough to about 5mm thick and cut medium sized circles.
Place the dough in the palm of your hand, place a small cube of cream cheese and a teaspoon of the prepared filling; Fold and close the dough in the shape of a drumstick (the word Coxinha means "little drumstick" in Portuguese).
Knead scraps and re-roll, and continue cutting until all the dough is used.
Dip pastries in beaten eggs and roll in breadcrumbs.
Deep-fry for 8 minutes, or until golden and crispy. Serve hot.

  14. bila sam u Brazilu dva puta po mjesec dana. ovo je jelo u kojem sam se "gušila", obožavam coxinhas de galinha !! probaj umjesto juhe staviti pola juhe, pola mlijeka (za masu), predobro je. i brazilci ne sijeku meso, već ga trgaju prstima da bude vlaknasto - puno je bolje nego kad grizeš komadiće.pozdrav!
