We hope everyone had a lovely Shavuot! But we have another holiday coming up, and you probably want someone else to cook your Shabbat meal for a change. Well, here’s your chance!
I love cooking in a slow cooker. Not only does it cook your dinner for you, but slowly cooking food at a low temperature really brings out different flavors and results in tender meat that just falls off the bone. I defrosted some chicken overnight on Thursday, and on Friday morning I chopped some veggies (I guess you can do that the night before), added some flavoring and liquid, and turned the machine on. I don’t think it gets any easier.
I used to watch Jamie Oliver when he was The Naked Chef on the Food Network, but only watched his new show, Jamie at Home, once. In that episode he made game pigeon, which did not really look appetizing to me. I never tried any of his recipes, but admired his use of homegrown (or local/seasonal) ingredients. When I read this article last week, I knew I had to take a look at his new cookbook, Jamie at Home. While browsing through it at the book store, I saw a lot of unkosher recipes, and some graphic pictures of dead hanging rabbits and other animals. I did find a few recipes that looked delicious and very easy, and decided to give a chicken recipe a shot at home.
I actually got the recipe from the food network site (it’s the same as the one in the book), and changed it a bit (or a lot) to make it a little easier. Maybe I’ll try the original one next time…
