Sloooooow Cooking, my way

I rarely buy and cook chicken. It's just not one of my favorites. Today I made and exception. Not sure what inspired me, perhaps a series of BBQ specials on the food network.

This was a very simple recipe as you will see from the ingredients with explosive flavor. The secret here was the very very slow cooking. I think these babies cooked for more than three hours over very low heat.  A lid was used for most of the cooking time.  The lid ensured that the meat remained tender at all times and cooked by steam.  Just look at how the meat is falling off the bone.

Slow Cooked Chicken

The garlic in this dish caramelized, but did not go bitter as it was not allowed to burn.   No BBQ sauce needed here.

Add more fluids if necessary . This dish is not supposed to fry. Fluids are allowed to reduce completely in the final phase of cooking.


4 Chicken breasts with bone
Garlic 10 cloves , slightly crushed
2 cups of water
splash of white wine

Served with seasoned cucumber slices and crisp white wine.

My Calabria

Yesterday , was one of those days where I just needed to recoup from a very intense stretch consulting work. Longer days than usual, and lots of New York Metro pressure than I would like on a daily basis. So,  with the weatherman telling me that we would have some fairly nice outlooks for this weekend,  I decided to spend less time playing with my computers. My plans included included resuming and catching up with some of my blogging.. You've seen some of that already . But my highlight for the day  was for me and my Queen to head down to Chinatown in NYC.  Our plans: do some food shopping , correction some "window" food shopping and course,  just take in as much we could of the Chinatown scene. Given that Little Italy is also right next door to Chinatown, we would stop there too. If you do not know, Manhattan's Chinatown  nowadays contently fuses with it's Italian neighbors.  Great combo, isn't it ? I sure do think so.

The plan worked out. So do read on.

Paella Experimentation

There are times that I love to experiment just to kill away the boredom. And I get to play the culinary Guinea Pig. Yummy

Here are some plays on Paella

This was made with Brown Rice, Very different way to cook.  Grouper Filet , who would have thought, was made part of the recipe.
