Chicken Garkoye (Roast Meat, Brasato, Garkoe, Scharkoje) | Russian Chef | Russian Cuisine

The word garkoye comes from ghar which is close to the embers.

It's kind of unbelievable but the first time I eat this was about 7 month ago)))))))) It was in a restaurant of the train "Sevastopol-Moscow", and it was really delicious.)))
In Russian cuisine garkoye can be made it with lamb, pork, beef or all kinds of meat.
  • The whole chicken breast (about 400 gr);
  • 3 big potatoes;
  • 1 big carrot;
  • 1 onion bulb;
  • 2 garlic sections;
  • 1 tablespoon sour cream;
  • 1 teaspoon parsley root;
  • 1 teaspoon celery root;
  • herbs (parsley, dill);
  • bay leaves;
  • a pot.
Cut potatoes, carrot, onion, chicken and separately fry them on a pan to the golden colour (chicken should be fried with butter)).
Then put all fried stuff in a pot, add cutted garlic, roots, salt, pepper, bay leaves, 1/2 cup water. I lost pot's cover that's why I used frozen bread dough to cover the pot.
Put the pot into the oven (middle fire) for 20 min. Then open the pot and put sour cream and cutted herbs. Cover the pot. Put back into the oven (middle fire) for 10 min.

It may be weird but garkoye is good with beer)).
