Subject: RE: BS: Recipes - what are we eating?
Here's one, but it has raw egg in it. I would never eat raw egg.
Last night I made a delicious easy dinner.


1 Tbsp veg oil
one half of a rotisserie chicken from the deli
pasta for two people, cooked (penne pasta is good)
one-half of a can of sliced black olives, drained
1/4 to 1/2 cup yellow onion, chopped
olive oil
pinch of oregano - to taste

Amounts are approximate and can vary acc. to your taste.

Heat the veg oil in a large skillet, saute the onion till tender. You could even brown it if you'd like. Meanwhile, remove the meat from the half of a chicken and cut it into bite-size pieces. Kitchen shears are helpful here. Be sure to include the skin, which is flavorful.

When the onions are done, add the chicken and pasta and heat through. Just before eating, add the olives and oregano. Splash on some olive oil to taste so the batch is not too dry and stir gently. Serve.
This recipe is based on a favorite of mine from a restaurant now out of business. The original included some kind of mild, smooth cheese which acted as a binder, but I don't know what kind of cheese it was. It's good without it, anyhow.

I read somewhere that you shouldn't heat olive oil too high, so that's why I use veg oil for the onion.
