This year, I decided that I would not make a turkey. Flat out – no turkey. It was just going to be the two of us and I actually am one of the few people on this planet who has no affinity for leftover turkey sandwiches. So I went a different route… Cornish Game Hens and a whole mess of sides!
So settle in for Thanksgiving 2010… Cornbread -Stuffed Cornish Game Hens, Corn Maque Choux, Garlicky Broccoli Rabe, Butternut Squash Mash and Cranberry Sauce.
Good lord, do I love fried.
Fried meats, fried ice cream, fried veg. If it’s fried, chances are I’m going to love it. The following is absolutely no exception. Behold, my easy-peasy, I’ve got a freezer full of chicken breasts and not much else weeknight dinner: Chicken Milanese and Escarole Salad w/ Pickled Onions!
This dinner is ridiculously easy, and even more ridiculously delicious. Started out with two skinless, boneless chicken boobs, seasoning them generously with sea salt and cracked pepper.
I never just photograph the finished product, but I was tired the day I made the following recipe and couldn’t be bothered to break out the SLR! Please enjoy this image of Chicken Makhani (or Butter Chicken).
Recipe after the jump!
Know what’s delicious? French food. I adore French cooking, partly because of the prodigious use of butter, but mostly because of all the effort and time that goes into so many of their traditional dishes.
I’ve never really attempted to make anything French that requires hours or prep and cook time, so I thought I’d give it a shot with one of my favorites… coq au vin. Got a lovely recipe from Le Creuset’s UK site and set to it…
The other day, I made my second roast chicken, ever. So far, I think the secret is to stuff butter under the skin and then religiously baste it with juices and melted butter.
It was a success, again!
Thanks to kv for taking this piccie!
