It's been waaaay too long since I've written any blog posts. Life has been happening. The cooking goes on.
Made a great recipe last week - had to share, especially after my MIL requested the recipe from me TWICE!
Chicken Pieces (enough to feed the fam)
1/2 large onion chopped
3-5 carrots, chopped
3 stalks celery, chopped
2 cups chicken stock (or 2 cups water and 1 bouillon cube)
Oil for the pan
Heat oil in a large dutch oven - brown chicken pieces until nicely browned. Remove from pan. Saute vegetables in a little more oil until onion is a bit browned and the other veggies are softened a bit. Either remove the veggies or just continue on. Add in ~3Tbsp flour and mix in well to the veggies until all the oil is soaked into the flour and the pot is rather dry. Then add in the 2 cups of chicken stock (or bouillon and water) whisking as you go to break up lumps until it's a nice smooth sauce. Add in salt & pepper and any other seasonings now and mix well. Add the vegetables and chicken back in and simmer on the stove - or in a 350 degree oven - until the chicken is done.
Serve over rice or mashed potatoes would be tasty too.
Feeds 4-6 depending on how much chicken was cooked.
