  • 1 egg
  • 6 potatoes
  • 1 bulb onion
  • 1 chicken fillet
  • 150 g (5 oz) hard cheese
  • vegetable oil (for frying)
  • dairy butter (for greasing)
  • black ground pepper – to taste
  • oregano – to taste
  • salt – to taste


Cut the chicken fillet into medium pieces. Preheat vegetable oil and fry the meat until half done. Season the chicken with oregano.

Peel a bulb onion and chop it finely. Peel potatoes and grate them. Add salt and black ground pepper to the potato. Then add an egg with the onion and mix until thoroughly incorporated.

Grate the hard cheese and set aside for a while.

Grease cake pans with warmed dairy butter. Squeeze the potato mixture to get rid of the excess liquid. Arrange the potatoes in cake pans and make some holes in the center. Put the fried chicken in the holes. Place the cake pans in the oven and bake muffins for 20-30 minutes. Then top them with grated cheese and put back in the oven for 10 minutes to let the cheese melt.

Enjoy your meal!
