SIMPLE AND EASY ARE USUALLY THE WAY WE ROLL…
I don’t think this is the exception, but maybe just a little bit more involved. Don’t immediately write this post off as something you think you cannot make! TRY IT and you will be pleasantly surprised at your accomplishments.
I don’t know what it is like in your house, but chicken is a struggle in this house. I think you will agree chicken is usually reserved for baking, roasting or frying.
Today, thanks to some inspiration from an article from Christopher Kimballs Milk Street, we are going to go with a tried and true method of poaching. This will give you a wonderful moist piece of chicken.
Why this recipe?
It’s simple, we were in the produce isle AND THAT’S WHEN THE INSPIRATION HIT….(Remember we have said before, you never know when the inspiration will hit). We have never done this combination of foods before, but were looking around at the produce and thinking of ways we could put things together. And there you have it, that is how our idea for a Beet and Radish Puree was born…
As for the dumplings, that hit Roger this morning over coffee.
I guess we may be weird in some ways, but our minds think about food quite often. Not just that we want to eat, but what can we create from new ingredients to liven up the usual foods.
Let us know what inspirations you have had with your menu ideas. We would love to hear from you.
