Ramadan brings a great opportunity for families to get together; be it iftar, sehri, or taraweeh prayers.
The month brings extra joy and excitement, especially for children, who are, at times, too eager to participate with the family, often at the expense of their own well-being. But fasting can sometimes cause fatigue and dehydration. However, with a well-planned diet and some dietary changes, things can go smooth.
1 whole baguette, sliced diagonally (hot dog buns work too)
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp butter
250g boneless skinless chicken breasts, sliced into ½-inch cubes
1 tbsp paprika powder
1 tbsp dried oregano
1 tbsp dried parsley
1 small onion, diced
1 tbsp chopped garlic
½ capsicum, sliced
3-4 mushrooms, sliced
1 slice lemon juice
1 tbsp mustard sauce
1 tbsp BBQ sauce
Salt and pepper, to taste
In a pan, put 1 teaspoon of butter; place the baguette slices and dry toast, Toast the baguette slices for a few minutes until golden brown. Remove and set aside.
In another pan, on medium-high heat, add the olive oil, chopped onion, chopped garlic, and the chicken breasts. Cook the chicken until it is no longer pink, or about five minutes, then add the paprika powder, oregano, parsley, mustard and BBQ sauce and a little water.
Cover with lid for 2 minutes, then add the sliced mushrooms and capsicum, salt and black pepper and cook for additional 5 minutes.
Remove skillet from the heat and place the chicken mix on the bread. You can also add some fresh parsley or shredded mozzarella on top.
