Sunshine Chicken


One-pot meals are quick and easy to cook, perfect for when time is short. The common concept shared by this type of cooking is that as one puts all the ingredients together in one vessel, there no need to worry about getting the timing just right for each particular ingredients. Particular nice, is the fact that there is only one pot to clean afterwards!

Chicken Cutlets with Facon


I made this last evening, easy to prepare and a delight to the palate!

Chicken Cutlets and Facon

(based on a recipe from Food & Wine‘s Quick from Scratch Chicken Cookbook)

TurkeyFacon

Serves 4

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lb Swiss chard, long stems removed, leaves chopped and washed well
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1/4  lb sliced Jack’s Gourmet Facon, cut into 1/4″ strips
  • onion, chopped
  • 4 chicken cutlets
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp, fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup parve substitute for sour cream *

Directions

  1. Put the Swiss chard and the water in a medium pot. In a large nonstick frying pan, cook the facon until crisp. Drain on paper towels. Pour off and reserve all but 1 tbsp of the facon fat, which should stay in the pan.
  2. Put the pan with the remaining facon fat on a moderately low heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, another 30 seconds. Add the mixture to the chard. Bring the water  to a simmer, cover and cook over low heat until the chard is wilted and tender, about 5 minutes.
  3. Meranwhile, heat 2 tbsp of the reserved facon fat in the frying pan over moderately low heat. Season the turkey cutlets with 1/4 tsp of the salt and the pepper. Cook until just done, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Remove the cutlets from the pan so as not overcook them.
  4. Remove the chard from the heat. Stir in the parve sour cream and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt. Remove the chard from the pot with a slotted spoon, leaving the sauce. Divide the chard among four plates. Top each pile of chard with a turkey cutlet. Spoon some of the sauce over the top and sprinkle with the facon.
  5. Serve with french fries

* Parve Sour Cream

Yield: 2 cups

  • 1 package soft tofu
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • Salt, to taste

Blend together well and refrigerate for about 4 hours

I washed it down with a Blue Moon White Belgian Style Beer.

Enjoy, gentle reader, enjoy; I certainly did!

Meanwhile, below is a recipe, I made last evening. CS]

  3. The sauce should be thick with much of the water evaporated to concentrate the flavor. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  4. In a separate skillet, heat remaining oil, add and cook the ground turkey, and cook until brown. Season with salt and pepper and 1/2 tsp of old bay. Cook thoroughly. Mix with marinara sauce and simmer low for an hour. Serve together with your favorite pasta or meat.
