Chicken with Pepper Relish

Post  justmecookin on Fri Jun 05, 2009 10:16 am

4 boned, skinned chicken breast halves (about 6 oz. each)
Salt and pepper
1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup chopped shallots
2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
1 1/2 pounds red, yellow, and/or orange bell peppers, rinsed, stemmed, seeded, and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
3 tablespoons sherry vinegar
1/4 cup chopped pitted Spanish-style green olives
1 tablespoon drained capers

Rinse chicken and pat dry. Sprinkle breast halves lightly all over with salt and pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a 10- to 12-inch nonstick frying pan over medium heat. Add chicken and cook, turning once, until browned on both sides but still slightly pink in the center of the thickest part (cut to test), about 8 minutes total. Transfer chicken to a plate.

Pour remaining 1/2 tablespoon olive oil into pan. Add shallots and garlic and stir often until fragrant but not browned, 1 to 2 minutes. Add peppers and stir frequently until slightly soft, 1 to 2 minutes. Add vinegar, olives, capers, and the chicken.

Cover, lower heat to medium-low, and cook until peppers are soft and chicken is no longer pink in the center of the thickest part (cut to test), 5 to 8 minutes longer. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Italian-American Meatballs

Post  justmecookin on Sat Jun 06, 2009 3:23 pm

Italian-American Meatballs

2 slices white sandwich bread, stale
1/2 pound ground pork
1/2 pound ground veal
1/2 pound ground beef chuck
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan
1/4 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1/2 medium onion, grated (about 1/4 cup)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 large egg, beaten
Freshly ground black pepper
1/3 cup olive oil, divided
Quick Marinara Sauce, recipe follows
1 pound cooked spaghetti or linquini

Grate the bread or pulse into crumbs in a food processor. In a small bowl toss the bread crumbs with 1/3 cup cold milk to re-hydrate.

In a large bowl, combine the bread crumbs, pork, veal, beef, Parmesan, parsley, salt, onion, garlic, and egg and mix until combined. Season the meat mixture with pepper.

Using your hands, gently form the meat mixture into 18 slightly larger than golf ball-sized balls. (Packing the meat mixture too tightly together will result in tough meatballs). Refrigerate for at least 1 hour or up to 24 hours.

Heat half the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add half of the meatballs and cook, turning occasionally, until well browned on all sides, about 6 minutes. Transfer the meatballs to a plate. Drain the oil and wipe out the skillet, return to the heat, and repeat with the remaining oil and meatballs.

Drain and wipe out the skillet again. Return all the meatballs to the skillet and pour in the marinara sauce. Bring to a boil, lower the heat, and simmer, covered, swirling the pan occasionally, until the meatballs are cooked through about 15 minutes. The cheese in the meatballs will start to melt when the meatballs are ready.

Serve immediately with the Quick Marinara Sauce and spaghetti or on sandwiches. If serving with spaghetti, toss with 1/3 of the sauce. These meatballs can be stored, covered in the refrigerator for 3 days, or frozen for up to 6 weeks. Makes 4 servings

Quick Marinara Sauce
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 medium onion, diced (about 3 tablespoons)
4 cloves garlic, sliced
3 (28-ounce) cans whole, peeled, tomatoes, roughly chopped
3 sprigs fresh thyme
1 small bunch fresh basil, leaves chopped
2 teaspoons kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper

Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Saute the onion and garlic, stirring, until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes, the herb sprigs and basil and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered for about 15 minutes or until thickened

Remove and discard the herb sprigs. Stir in the salt and season with pepper, to taste. Serve or store covered in the refrigerator for up to 3 days, or freeze for up to 2 months.

Post  justmecookin on Thu Jun 18, 2009 1:50 pm

Potato Chip Chicken

4 chicken cutlets (6- to 8-ounce), (or chicken breasts or chicken thighs with bones, if desired)
6 ounces potato chips
1 clove garlic, minced
4 tablespoons of butter
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Melt butter in a small pot. Add garlic to it and let cool slightly. Crumble potato chips in food processor by pulsing for 30 seconds, or place paper towel over chips and roll back snd forth with a rolling pin until chips resemble crumbs. Mix in black pepper. You will have 1 1/2 cups. Place crumbs on a large plate.

Cover a large baking sheet with aluminum foil. Dip one chicken cutlet onto butter garlic mixture. Place cutlet on potato chip crumbs and press down slightly to insure crumbs stick. Turn cutlet over and repeat on other side. Place on prepared baking pan. Repeat procedure for remaining 3 cutlets.

Place in preheated oven and bake for 12-15 minutes (The cooking time for breasts & thighs with bones is 30 to 40 minutes). Make sure cutlets are cooked through, still tender and that the topping is golden brown. Serves 4
