Recently Sandra over at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom mentioned she was cooking her Dad's Favorite Chicken, a recipe handed down from her grandmother, great grandmother for dinner one night. You can find her recipe here. As I was reading her recipe I realized that everyone's grandmother must have a similar recipe. Mine was used primarily at the end of the week to use up things from the veggie bin and such. Her recipe is made with Portuguese fries, but mine is made with either mashed potatoes, pasta or crusty fried potatoes.
END OF WEEK CHICKEN
2 LARGE skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into small bite size chunks
1 LARGE bunch green onions, THINLY sliced
1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
2 LARGE carrots, halved and sliced in half moons
1 tablespoon FRESH thyme leaves
1/4 cup chopped FRESH Italian leaf Parsley
1/2 teaspoon smokey paprika
FRESH ground sea salt and tri-color pepper, to taste
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup homemade bone broth
1 tablespoon avocado oil
1 tablespoon butter
- Melt avocado oil and butter in saute pan.
- Add carrots and saute 2-3 minutes.
- Add onions and tomatoes, cooking 2-3 minutes more until onion is translucent.
- Add in chicken, thyme, paprika, minced garlic, salt and pepper.
- Add in bone broth, reduce heat to medium low and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through. Check frequently to make sure you still have cooking liquid - add broth as necessary to keep everything moist and have a good amount of gravy.
- Serve over mashed potatoes, rice, noodles or fried potatoes.
