Dinner for the weary

October 15, 2010 Leave a comment

Beloved has been a bit moany these past days. I understand coz he is new to his job, barely 3 months into it. His previous job was in the construction industry, now in the health sector–how far is that??

Anyway, to make him feel better, I promised I would cook him a good dinner tonight—-Chicken with white wine and rasher!

You must have:
2 part boned chicken breasts(washed&dried)
1 cup chopped leek
1 up celery sticks
1 cup carrot sticks
1/2 cup chopped rasher
1 bay leaf
4 cubes of butter
2 cups chicken broth
1 glass of white wine
a dash of olive oil
a spoonfull of flour

I’m so sorry i dont normally measure my ingredients–i go by feel and if I do measure I use cups. And I am sorry I dont have pictures but I promise I will post one on my next post. I am new on wordpress and I hate reading instructions so I am still ‘feeling’ things here.

1. Fry the chicken breasts till slightly browned. Set aside.
2. Put the chopped rasher on the hot pan that was used to fry the chicken–fry the rasher till it is slightly crunchy.
3.Add the chopped leek and the butter cubes. Stir to prevent it from burning.
4. Add in bay leaf and celery sticks, followed by the carrot sticks. Keep cooking for 5 minutes—remember, medium fire!!!
5. After the vegetable sticks are wilted, add in a spoonfull of flour and continue cooking for 2 more minutes.
6. Add the wine and chicken broth and bring it to a boil. Once it boils, put it to slow fire and let it simmer for 45minutes to 55 minutes–or till meat is tender. Adjust seasoning and voila!! A hearty chicken with rasher and vegetable sticks!

Easy peasy lemony squeezy! It can be served with rice or mashed potato. I prefer the rice—it’s my cpmfort food during the cold winter days!!

I think I am stuck on my college self coz all the foods i tend to cook are easy and should I say— A Lazy Chef Cousine!! 😛 I might consider changing my blog title! Happy eating!!

Beloved loved loved loved it. And he is asking for Lasagne tomorro! Eeeek!! And not the jarred ones—everthing must be from scratch– the bolognese sauce and even th eroux sauce!! argh!!
