So my husband and I are addicted to the Food Network. On weekend nights, when most people are watching movies, we’re likely to be getting ideas from Good Eats or Iron Chef. The other night, we were watching Ina Garten, the Barefoot Contessa, and she made this really yummy-looking, really simple meal, the centerpiece of which was chicken piccata. It basically is chicken fried in breadcrumbs with a white wine and lemon sauce over the top. With the chicken, she served buttermilk mashed potatoes and roasted onions. Yum! Hubby made the onions the other night, and they were, indeed, delish. As soon as I can get to the grocery store, I’m going to buy ingredients for the chicken.
I’m not sure how kosher it is to cut and paste recipes, so I’ll just link.
You can find recipes for the entire meal here.
And the chicken piccata is here.
Is anybody else as enamored of cooking shows as we are? What are your favorites, and which dishes have you taken from a cooking show that turned into family favorites?
