mmm-yoso!!! is this blog. Just a diary of food that we eat. By "we", I mean Kirk and ed(from Yuma) and sometimes Miz Ducky and sometimes Omar and even sometimes me, Cathy. Today, another meal made at home with food on sale.
Hello again. It is Friday and time to get another recipe. This one is *so* easy and *so* inexpensive and *so* good.
Chicken is on sale for 69¢/lb at Vons (with your club card), This 6 pounder was ~$4. Lemons are not on sale, but I bought one anyhow. One whole stick of butter. About 1/4 cup of dried tarragon, (1/2 cup fresh) which was 30¢ when bought by the pound at Henry's.
Melt the butter, squeeze a whole lemon into the butter, put the tarragon in and let the flavors sort of meld-without letting the butter get cold again...
Pour it over the chicken and bake.
I heat the oven to 450° until I put the bird in, then turn it to 350° and bake 20 minutes per pound. (Inner temp should be 185°)
Photo when it was almost done...
Sorry, I apparently started eating and stopped taking photos.
Broccoli is on sale 50¢/lb at Henry's this week.
Broccoli, olive oil, kosher salt (not as salty)
Spread out thinly on baking sheet, even the small leaves and stems...try to have everything cut pretty thin/small.
You'll hear the sizzle of the oil. The florets will burn and be nicely crisp.
Cathy's BLT Chicken
1 each: Chicken, stick butter, lemon
1/4 C dried tarragon (or 1/2 C chopped fresh)
Melt butter, add juice of lemon, add tarragon. Let flavors meld (about 5 minutes) while heating oven to 450°.
Pour melted mix over chicken, put into oven, lower temperature to 350°.
Cook 20 minutes per pound, until internal temperature (taken at thickest part of breast, not touching the bone) is 185°, or until juices run clear.
BROCCOLI SIDE DISH
Finely chop broccoli into florets, stems can be sliced finely also. Put into bowl.
Pour olive oil over broccoli, put about 1 T Kosher salt and mix.
Place all, spread flat, onto baking sheet. Put into oven about 10 minutes before the chicken should be done. When broccoli starts to brown and oil sizzle, remove.
