OK, OK, I’ll boast about dinner tonight.
The other day I found a broccoli recipe on Amateur Gourmet that seemed different. I love broccoli AND it’s good for us, so I was up for it. First, I prepared a version of Poulet Normande — chicken pieces dusted in cornstarch, sauteed in good oil until lightly coloured, added a chopped onion and cooked until done, then added chopped apples and a good amount of thyme, and finally cooked for another four minutes or so. I deglazed the chicken pan with apple juice, reduced it thoroughly and poured it over the chicken/apple mix. I served it with butter-drenched small boiled potatoes, and the wonderful baked broccoli and garlic tossed with lots of lemon juice and a good handful of Parmesan cheese.
Simple but tasty and balanced. A keeper.
