Chicken-pot = yummy!

Checkout my latest post over at Makes me wanna holler ... A very delicious recipe for a one pot chicken dish is included. Enjoy!

________________________

As the temperatures cool I start to looking forward to more hearty "warming" dishes. My favorite this year is what my partner and I have dubbed, Chicken Pot -- or the most delicious, One-Pot braised chicken dish that you will enjoy this Fall. Check out the recipe below...












Ingredients:


4-6 pieces of Chicken (white or dark meat based on your preference)
1 onion quartered
1 pint mushrooms quartered
1 small bag baby carrots
1 small bag red potatoes quartered
32oz Chicken Stock
1 tsb Thyme
1 tsb minced Garlic
1 small bunch Parsley chopped
1 Bay leaf


Directions:


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Season chicken with White Spice
  • Add a few swirls of Garlic Oil to your Dutch oven or braising pot and bring to a high heat
  • Brown all your chicken pieces on both sides. Remove and place to the side.
  • Add additional Garlic oil to your pot, add onions and carrots-- allow to cook until fragrant
  • Add potatoes and mushrooms to the pot, mix well and season lightly with White spice, Thyme and Parsley.
  • Add the chicken back to the pot along with the bay leaf and cover with Chicken stock.
  • Cover your pot and place in the oven for 30-45 minutes or until vegetables are tender and stock has cooked down significantly.
  • Taste stock and season with White Spice again if necessary and remove the bay leaf
  • Enjoy over rice or quinoa.

Yummy sides!

Hello foodie friends!

Geez!! I haven't posted here in almost a year! I feel like I have been to Mars and back and had a million different things going on. Nevertheless... I apologize for my absence-- hopefully you forgive me! 

Anywho, I have posted over at Makes me Wanna Holler recently, so I thought I would post it here as well. Especially since it is one of my favorite months... November, also known as, Turkey month! It's colder outside, and Thanksgiving is on the way, so I am always looking for tasty sides to with whatever I have on the menu. 

So here it is... enjoy!

Let's talk again soon!

Do you ever stare into your refrigerator and wonder,
“What in the world am I going to make with the _____ tonight?” 
Doesn't matter if the protein is chicken, fish, beef or pork I am always looking for new side dishes to spice up our weekly meals. There are so many different fruits and veggies occupying the produce aisles, trying some new side dishes can change your whole meal. 


Here are a few that I have started adding to our rotation...
Roasted Carrots (Food Network)
Ratatouille (Martha Stewart)
