One member of our household wouldn’t eat it.
BUT as luck would have it our Grandchildren, love chicken, so I am always trying
to find something new.
Once again among my morning emails, I found this recipe on a Martha Stewart site.
Chicken, Orange, Balsamic, sounds pretty good to me
Actually this is a Gluten Free Meal, for those who are interested
For 4 people
3-4 Chicken Breasts depending on the size of the breast
Coarse salt and ground pepper
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 large peeled orange, cut into 8 wedges
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
Preheat oven to 200C
Season chicken with sea salt and pepper.
In a large ovenproof skillet, heat oil over medium-high.
Add chicken, skin side down, and cook until golden and crisp,
About 7 minutes.
Return chicken, skin side up, to skillet and transfer to oven.
Bake until cooked through, 10 minutes.
Transfer chicken to a plate.
Return skillet to stove and over medium heat
Add vinegar and orange wedges.
until orange begins to soften, about 2 minutes.
Remove from heat and stir in butter.
To serve, return chicken to skillet and toss with orange and sauce.
Just to heat through before serving
Potatoes, Green Beans, Olive Oil, Sea Salt and Pepper
Garlic and Zest of a Lemon
For the Crushed Potatoes
Peel and cut in chunks as many potatoes as you need
In this case 4 large ones
Cook till tender in boiling salted water
Crush with a masher
Keep it rustic
Add 1-2 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil and some freshly ground black pepper
Mix and place in a lightly oiled gratin dish
Should be crispy on top and lightly golden
Top and tail the beans
Blanch in salted boiling water for just 2 mins
Drain and run under cold water to cool
Put aside till you need them
In another pan add 1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cloves of garlic peeled and crushed with a little sea salt
Zest of 1 lemon
Heat gently over medium heat, don't brown the garlic, it will get bitter
Add cooked green beans
Toss over medium heat till they are heated through
It was so popular,
There wasn't anything left
