Cleaning Out The Icebox

Last Tuesday night it was just Aidan and I.  Being a poor Chef at Muffuletta in Park I decided to make dinner with what I had on hand and product from my patio garden.

 

 

I had one package of chicken thighs, some old green onions, mushrooms, garlic, half a red onion, and an old open bottle of white wine.  Lets get started.  First thing first turn on some music and pour a drink.  I had a couple glasses a wine during this adventure.

 

I took all the ingredients above and cut them into medium dice.  I then placed them into a oven safe baking dish.  There is some fresh basil from my garden on top as well.

 

 

 

 

 

I seared the chicken thighs in a pan with some oil until they where golden brown on the skin side.  I then placed them in the baking dish with white wine and chicken stock.  The thighs braised in the oven for 2 hours at 320 degrees.

While the chicken was cooking I made a salad of greens and cherry tomatoes from the garden.  I made a quick dressing with oil and vinegar.

Below is the finished dish!!  Off to work.  I am thinking of seared miso salmon with bacon-shrimp broth for the weekend. We will see!!
