So I put one in the pot and made some braised chicken.
This is a yummy recipe, one that somehow come over with me from Australia over 20 years ago. I lost the recipe but fortunately I remembered how to make it. My family loves it.
served with skillet corn bread
1 chicken (or pieces)
3/4 cup balsalmic vinegar
1 can tomatoes
2 bay leaves
salt & pepper
Generously smother the chicken with crushed garlic, oregano salt & pepper. Brown on both sides in a pan. Add to pot remainder ingredients, except peas. Cover & simmer approximately 3/4 hr. Take lid off and cook 10 minutes for sauce to thicken. Add peas, cook for five minutes and serve.
I usually serve this with couscous, but last night I made mashed potatoes and substituted the canned tomatoes with tomato sauce & sundried tomatoes which was also very good.
It was nice to have a fuller meal after eating this this week. Have to say it's been easier on the cooking side.
