Baked zucchini with chicken legs and tomatoes

Sprinkle a heat-resistant dish with a little olive oil, put the onions and 2 chopped garlic cloves, chicken legs washed and wiped with a towel, paprika, chopped tomatoes, wine and fill with water. Place a slice of tomato on each leg. Place the dish covered with aluminum foil in the oven for 30-40 minutes.

Meanwhile, peel the zucchini and cut them into fairly thick slices, add white flour and fry in oil (just brown a little). Remove on paper towels to remove excess oil. This is the secret of firm pumpkins (they become a little crispy after frying).

When the meat is ready, add the fried zucchini to the bowl, pour the broth and bake for a few more minutes to mix the flavors (not covered with foil).

At the end, season with salt, pepper and sprinkle with chopped parsley and green garlic, mixed with crushed garlic (optionally, as your stomach resists).

Baked pumpkin meatballs

Hello, I also have a question, if possible, because I am not clear about one thing. From what I understand, we only make meatballs from the zucchini peel, and we don't put the zucchini in it, do we !? Thank you! : *


I am happy to ask because it is a good opportunity to emphasize an important detail for the success of the recipe. Use the thickly sliced ​​zucchini peel (ie with a part of its core) given on the large grater. I wish you success in execution and good appetite! If you have any more questions, I will be happy to answer them!


I also have a question, if you don't mind: what is this dish called in Greek?
I look forward to your reply.
Thanks !


Thank you for the question! They are called "Kolokithokeftedes" from "kolokithia" which means "pumpkin" and from "keftedes" which means of course "meatballs". If you still want the Greek names and other recipes, please ask me, I would be very pleased to answer you! I wish you a nice day!


I can use Italian or English


Yes, you can use Google translate, I have made the test and it works. Have a nice day!


i am from Italy hello. Can you help me translate? / rardor


Baked pumpkin pies

It is a more dietary version of pumpkin meatballs, without custard, but just as tasty. I recommend it to lovers of light foods for digestion, but also for calories!
1 kg of pumpkin, thick bark
1 o
50 gr of baked cheese
1-2 tablespoons flour
1 small onion or 2 chopped green onions
2 tablespoons olive oil
½ attack cut to the dill
1 teaspoon baking powder
salt, pepper, oregano as preferred
2-3 mint leaves created (optional) chopped
Spam the pumpkin and cut the stems. We cut the thick slices of bark, put them on the grill and put them in a bowl. We can also give the bark of scallops without cleaning the pumpkins, but being careful not to get too much into their core. Add salt, rub and then let it drain for 15-20 minutes. Squeeze well, leave for another 10 minutes and squeeze again. Repeat until no more liquid is released. Then we add all the other ingredients, but without adding salt because they are already salty. Then knead the mixture to homogenize and shape it into sandwiches and lightly crushed (see photo). We put them in a tray that I greased with oil and put them in the preheated oven at 190 oC. We leave you approx. 25 minutes until they are golden and return them on the other side for another 10 minutes until they take on color, without letting them cook too much.
And something else
& # 8211 It is practical to sprinkle on the tray a baking paper that we grease and put on top of the chickpeas. We get rid of washing and washing the tray.
& # 8211 With the same composition we can make french fries, if we shape them into balls, we roll them in flour and fry them.

Tips from Gina Bradea

  • If do not fast, you can au gratin them a little: sprinkle grated cheese, parmesan or other fatty cheese, matured on top.
  • If keep fasting, prepare a simple pilaf or some cooked pasta separately, place it on the plate and put the vegetables in the oven on top. Mmmm, the look and taste are divine! You can also prepare something like this for guests.
  • They can be served in the hallway: place them on the table, at the beginning, next to other plates and bowls with various dishes. Being so brightly colored, they will attract attention and everyone will serve. Even twice, when they discover how tasty they are.
