  1. A knock off "Chicken Curry". Quick and easy. It does taste better with b/s chicken breasts, one of the few recipes that does. Saute two chicken breasts cut into thirds, about 3 minutes on each side. In a medium bowl, mix together 1/3 cup Mango Chutney, 1 cup milk, 1 tsp. cumin, 2 tsp curry powder, 1/2 tsp tumeric powder and 2 Tsp. grainy musard, whisk. Pour over sauteed chicken, turn to low and let simmer for about 10-15 minutes on low heat. Serve over rice.

    Everyone raves about this one.

      Chicken Curry...that is a wonderful not especially like a lot of curry powder...this hits the spot.

      Thanks for also posting the great link...I loved those thin potatoes...I will have to wait on getting a mandolin though...the thinness is the secret in that recipe.

      Well, 2 more great dishes added to my folder.

        Your very welcome. The Chicken Curry is a great dish and so easy too. And I agree, the mandolin made the potatoes a success. :)

    2. Leftover purple sprouting brocolli, warmed through in a frying pan with garlic and on to toasted good bread, drizzled with olive oil. A fab brushetta.

      1. My favourite vegetable thing has gotta be asparagus tossed in EVOO, S&P, and lemon juice, then put under the broiler until done to lightly-browned, crisp-tipped perfection.

        I also like to poach eggs in salsa and serve on tortillas (homemade if I have an extra 10 mins.). I'll generally pierce the yolk right before setting on the table, so it oozes out and silkens up things lickety-split.

          We like to boil the asparagus for 4 or 5 min, then toss with salt, pepper, olive oil, and some parmesan cheese, love it!

          1. My hard cider-braised pork chops. Season and dredge two bone-in pork chops in a little flour (with maybe a dash of cinnamon), brown them on both sides in a little oil in a Dutch oven, then add a bottle of your favorite hard cider (I prefer Magner's). Add a diced onion, a couple minced cloves of garlic, whatever herbs you have on hand (rosemary, thyme, sage, and marjoram are the best), maybe a few whole cloves, and a bay leaf, put the top on and stick it in a 275-300 degree oven, turning the chops over occasionally, until they are fork-tender. Sometimes I'll pour in a little milk halfway through cooking.

            Serve with egg noodles, polenta, mashed potatoes, or any starch you want. Delicious, easy, and low labor. Mmmm, I can't wait!

              Pork Chops...that sounds absolutely divine...I am copying your recipe to my recipes folder...Yes, I want some NOW. Thanks for a great flavor combo.

              Please pass the potatoes.
