Re: Whats For Supper?

Roasted chicken, plus some kind of potato dish and some kind of zucchini. I haven't decided on the sides yet, but I got a ton of zucchini in my order from my local produce co-op this week, so that will definitely have to be included somehow.  hmm

Re: Whats For Supper?

I made Char Kuey Teow last night, a Malaysian fried rice noodle dish.  Really loved the way it turned out and the fresh rice noodles were so silky!  Will be doing this again.  Not sure what's on for tonight.  A cold day here so it will be something to warm the insides.

I made One Pot Chook, which I got off a TV program (Iain Hewitson) a few years ago, but had never made. It was very good, and I realise it was a tagine, by a different name.
So very exciting! I have cooked a recipe that has been waiting for me for a few years. I have cooked a tagine! and I made a very yummy supper!

Re: Whats For Supper?

Cheers Lynnej and LMG!
Here is the recipe as I copied it down through the program!

ONE POT CHOOK
2 chicken thighs with bones, skin removed
1/2 large lemon, slice thinly, remove pips
1 cup stock
salt
1/2 tsp turmeric
1 tbsp raisins
1 sliced garlic clove
squeeze of lemon juice
2 chat potatoes, halved
3 -4 broccoli flowerets

Heat a little oil in a medium pot and add chicken, cook for a minute, turning, until sealed. Drain.
Add everything but the broccoli to the pot.
Simmer very gently for 25 minutes
Add the broccoli and cook another couple of minutes until it is tender.
Remove the chicken, potatoes and broccoli to a deep bowl. Reduce the sauce to a syrup and pour it over, adding a squeeze more lemon if necessary.

I used a medium potato instead of the two chats and beans instead of broccoli, and I left out the raisins. I only had a little bit of stock so I made it up with water and added a little bit of thyme. It is obviously a nicely flexible recipe!
A good pinch of salt is all that is needed. And I only used a little oil so I didn't drain it out.

It worked so well and was very straightforward, not many dishes! It was a big meal for me, but I managed it no problem! lol

It was the raisins that made me first think it seemed a bit Moroccan, and then I thought that maybe the turmeric was originally saffron. (Mind you it was delicious with turmeric).

It didn't need a slowcooker, thanks to the tender chicken thighs I guess!


Yum, I have got hungry for it again, just writing this! I will have to make it again soon! cool

Re: Whats For Supper?

Wow, sounds great Joy!

I am having dinner out tonight (ohh, lucky me!) at a local Indian restaurant for our girls night out. I have an obsession with curry at the moment so tonight should be fabulous. Drinks first at a local tavern and then on to some deliciousness that is delightfully spiced meat with a gorgeous sauce and fluffy jasmine rice. Oh, I soooo cannot wait!!!

Re: Whats For Supper?

OK, this guy walks into a southeast asian market, sees a package of fresh rice noodles.....
Yes, making Char Kuey Teow again tonight.  These noodles look even better than the ones I used last night and I am hooked!

Re: Whats For Supper?

Had planned on using left over shanks (from two nights ago- I always cook extra) over rice with extra veg but my son begged to take them back with him. What's a mother to do?

Instead, dahl, veg and rice.

Thanks for the recipe, Joy. Sounds delish thumbsup
