Just notice I haven’t written about the magic being created in the kitchen in awhile.
The other night a friend joined us for dinner so I wanted to make something requiring a bit more effort and was seasonally appropriate. I do LOVE comfort food, especially in the winter. We have about 20 cookbooks and most I’ve never opened so decided to grab “Barfoot Contessa– Family Style.” Turned right to ‘Chicken Stew with biscuits’. How can you say ‘no’ to anything with biscuits….?
Preparing the ‘stew’ (onions, oil, flour, carrots, peas, chicken) took the longest. I forgot that I needed to first cook the chicken (4 splits) then remove from bone before adding into the stew.
Basically, it is a giant chicken pot pie, dumped on a cookie sheet with a dozen biscuits on top.
Anyway, about 2.5 hrs later, my creation nearly mirrored this picture (from the book). The family and friend enjoyed it and I too thought was very flavorful and would definitely cook it again.
Did I mention Will LOVES biscuits. He is a good ‘southern’ (southern China that is).
Now, I have no idea the calorie and fat count (LOTS of butter) but I’ll worry about that another day.
