Its been weeks since I have done a French Fridays with Dorie post. The thing is the recipes that the Doristas chose for September were mostly fishy or sweet. so i decided to skip them all together. I was about to skip this weeks recipe too but then changed my mind and adapted it cook Chicken Pot Roast in Port ..
this is not quite what the Doristas had scheduled for this week. The French recipe they chose is Boeuf à la mode. but since we do not eat beef, i adapted it to cook Poulet à la mode. I followed the recipe in spirit simplifying it a bit was convenience. also i added some veggies just to make it more colorful and visually appealing. the result was a great pot roast. husband, toddler and i loved it. the toddler usually does eat too much chicken but even he finished his portion of this great roast. We enjoyed it with noodles for dinner and the following day toddler and I had the leftovers for lunch along with mashed potatoes. it tasted good either way.
now my adaption of Dorie's Boeuf à la mode...
Chicken Pot Roast in Port
Adapted from Dorie Greenspan's Boeuf à la mode recipe in Around the French Table
| Preparation Time : 15 minutes Serves : 2-3|
Marination Time : Overnight
Cooking Time : 15-20 min on stovetop + 50 min in the oven
Though the recipe is a bit long, this dish is actually pretty simple to prepare and can be easily pulled off on a weeknight. And once you've tasted it you'll probably keep coming back to it over and over again.
So much for today. Since i could not post my weekly meal plan earlier this week, thought I'll include it here.
