Hilopites are a traditional comfort food in Greece. There is nothing better on a cold day or after a long day at the beach than a nice bowl of hilopites. These are also a favorite go-to dish for kids.

HiloppitesChicken with Square Noodles Recipe Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs. chicken
  • 3/4 cup margarine
  • 1 kilo Tomatoes
  • 1lb, 10oz. noodles. These are special square “hilopites” noodles found in Greek markets
  • Salt
  • Pepper

Directions:

Clean, singe and wash the chickens well. Cut each in 4 portions and season eighth salt and pepper.

Wash the tomatoes and strain them through the colander.

Melt the butter in a large pot.

Sauté a few chicken pieces at a time, on all sides, in the hot butter or margarine.

Add 1/3 of the tomato paste, 1 cup of warm water and let all simmer over a medium fire for one and a quarter hour.

Meanwhile, set the oven at 250 degrees.

When their cooking time is completed, remove the chickens from their pot and set on a platter.

Pour the sauce in the pot into a baking dish.

Add the rest of the tomato paste and 2 or 3 cups of warm water. Put this in the oven to cook for 15 minutes.

Next add the noodles, stirring occasionally with a fork, and let them bake in a medium oven for 20 minutes.

Stir again, lay the chicken pieces in the baking dish with the noodles and let the meal cook for a few minutes more until the noodles are completely done.

Serve the meal with grated parmesan cheese.

It is especially tasty in the summer, served with fresh tomatoes.
