Hasselbackhähnchen mit Bratkartoffeln


Hasselback-Hähnchen ist die umfangreiche und angenehme Version eines schwedischen Rezeptes, das Hasselback-Kartoffel genannt wird. Ursprünglich wurde es 1940 im Hasselback-Restaurant in Stockholm erfunden. Sie schneiden das Huhn oder die Kartoffeln wie ein Musikinstrument Akkordeon, und deshalb wurde es als Akkordeon-Hasselback-Huhn berühmt. Das Rezept schmeckt unglaublich wegen der butterigen und breiigen rostroten Kartoffeln zusammen mit dem knusprigen und köstlichen Akkordeonhähnchen oben drauf. Das Hasselback Hähnchen ist optisch ansprechend und schmackhaft im Geschmack, aber erstaunlich einfach mit wenigen Zutaten zu kochen. Beginnen wir also mit dem heutigen Rezept und lassen Sie Ihr Essen aufleuchten.

  • Switch on the flame and let the potatoes simmer for around 10 to 15 minutes or until they become tender.
  • To test potatoes if they have been cooked or not, poke each of them with a knife.
  • Once potatoes cooked, put them in a strainer and drain the water completely.
  • For a nice roasting, toss the potatoes in the strainer unless the edges rise to fur up.

Baking Process


  • Now cut these furry potatoes into big pieces and keep aside.
  • After this very important step, move to the other ingredients; first, take garlic knob and crush each clove with the knife, so they could release their flavor while cooking in the oven.
  • Cut the lemon into thin and even slices to roast with potatoes.
  • Next, take a roasting pan and put it on high flame; immediately add olive oil, thyme sprigs, potatoes, crushed garlic cloves, and lemon slices.
  • Season with salt and ground black pepper as per your taste and toss all the ingredients to ensure that each of them is coated well with oil.
  • Now remove the roasting pan from flame and place it into the preheated oven to bake for about 30 minutes at 180 centigrade.

To Make Pancetta Filling;

  • Now in a bowl, add chopped pancetta, ricotta cheese, Parmesan cheese, and nutmeg, mix well to form a mixture and set aside.

To Make Chicken;
