Subject: RE: BS: Recipes - what are we eating?
I invented a new chicken dish yesterday.
Save the grease from cooking breakfast pork sausage. Chill it, and the burned bits will sink to the bottom. Don't use them.
Cut chicken thighs in half, warm up on low power in the wave. (They brown better when warm.)
Cut up and saute an onion in some of the sausage grease
Remove the onions, set aside in a pretty bowl
Brown the chicken thighs on one side.
Meanwhile, use salad shooter to slice up carrots and celery
when the chicken is browned on one side, turn it over and start browning that side.
put the carrots and celery in a ring around the meat
put lid on, simmer till meat is tender, maybe 30 minutes more
(I find I have to cook chicken much longer than recipes say.)
Remember those onions? Shortly before it's time to eat, stir 1 tsp sage into the onions, then return them to the skillet to heat through.
You'll notice there is no salt. The DH doesn't like it. Let diners salt it themselves at the dinner table.
Remove the food with a slotted spoon (so fat drains off) and serve. This was GOOD.
