Some Kinda Chicken

 

This started out as a joke in our house...but has become a regular menu item. My husband never knows exactly what it will be, just that it's....

Some Kinda Chicken

 

Ingredients:

  • Chicken (I prefer de-boned chicken breasts...but you can use whatever part of the chicken you desire)
  • Foraged contents of refrigerator and cupboards
  • Imagination

That's it! As long as you have the chicken, you are all set. Of course I suppose one could make Some Kinda Pork...or maybe Some Kinda Beef....if that's all you have on hand. For simplicity of this hub, we'll just refer to it as chicken...

Step 1: Defrost the chicken. This is the most important step. You forget this one and it's all over. Might as well order a pizza or send the hubby out to McDonalds.

Step 2: Clean the chicken. Remove all the gunky parts, rinse and pat dry with a paper towel. I wouldn't recommend waving it around to air dry it. Sometimes the chicken can be a wee bit slippery and you can hit something with it...like the cat. And they don't like it very much at all. Should you accidentally hit the cat with the chicken, you'll have to perform step 2 again.

Step 3: Explore kitchen cupboards and refrigerator for things that sound good. Ideally we are looking for a combination of liquids, solids and seasonings. For example...let's say that we found some apple juice in the fridge to use as the liquid...and then in the fruit basket we find an apple that is still mostly edible for the solid. What kinda seasoning would work? Cinnamon...very good. Okay let's try another one.... Orange marmalade and white wine? Okay...that was a tricky one. I usually just grab the closest jar of green flakey stuff...could be oregano, could be parsley, might be basil....any of them will do the trick.

Okay...so now you have the basic idea.

Step 4: Assemble dish. This is not rocket science. You can be all "Hell's Kitchen" if you want...but you don't have to. Just remember meat first...and then the other stuff. Put some tin foil on the top...and plunk it in the oven.

*Note - This step assumes you have baked chicken before and know the temperature of the oven and have set it accordingly...

Step 5: Wait 45 - 50 minutes and remove the chicken from the oven. This is very important...both the waiting and the removing. Take it out too soon and you could kill somebody....too late and it's no longer some kinda chicken, but some kinda cremation.

Step 6: Eat it. Did you really have to be told this step?

Love it! I've made this dish many times. not always with chicken, though. Strangely, the name I gave it was similar. When the kids ask "What's for dinner?", I often say "some form of dead animal."

LOL!

guidebaba...Perhaps we should start an ad campaign. Ice Cream: It's whats for breakfast. :)

trish...THAT is what the cat said too! :)

KarenN...it is!! But I doubt it would pass Gordon Ramsay's inspection and he'd probably swear at me a lot.

Hugs to all of you for commenting!
