  • Just A Chicken Dish

    HEY! don't turn your nose up with chicken! it is perfectly good food (if you prepare it properly) and very cheap too! hahahaha

    CHICKEN STEW WITH CREAM & MUSHROOM SAUCE

    (this dish may taste better when the weather is turning to cool)

    Ingredients:

    * whole chicken, washed & let dried
    * all purpose flour (to dust the chicken pieces with)
    * paprika (amount to your liking)
    * salt & pepper to taste
    * heavy cream or half 'n half (1 - 2 cups)
    * dry white wine (Rhine or Chardonay works well)
    * button mushroom (amount to your generocity)
    * yellow onion (1 or 2 heads)
    * Italian seasonings or French Fine Herbs or just thyme + oregano

    Preparation:

    * with a pair of kitchen shears (scissors) and a knife one can cut QUIETLY a whole chicken (= at the joints and across the flesh) into 12 pieces (= 4 pieces of breast meat + 2 thighs + 2 drumsticks + 2 wings + 2 back bones). Do it often enough and you can finish the task in 20 seconds.

    * use a paper bag from your good supermarket, cut it open wide, lay it out on the counter, and place the chicken pieces on it;

    season the chicken pieces generously and both sides with salt, pepper, paprika, Spices (herbs) and then with AP flour. Shake off the excess flour.

    On a heavy bottom skillet, place a piece of chicken fat + some butter + olive oil; bring to medium high heat and brown the chicken pieces;

    Place the browned chicken into a casserol, add a cup of chicken broth (made with chicken neck, wing tips, celery, onion) or just hot water; add white wine (1 - 2 cups), add all left spices left on the paper bad into the casserol;

    then into a 350F oven with a lid on for 45 minutes;

    back to the 325F oven for about 15 minutes;
