OMG, I did it!
I dared give you yet another chicken recipe.
Told you I was on a major chicken kick…
But hey, let me ask you. Unless you’re a vegetarian, can you really have too many chicken recipes? Is there really such a thing?
Yeah, I thought not.
This one is actually sort of an old classic in this household. For some reason, though, I hadn’t had it in a very long time.
In fact, it was my first time making it myself. Some of you might remember that I haven’t been cooking for all that long, really.
The kitchen used to be my ex’s kingdom, and this chicken dish happened to be one of his very few healthy creations.
So I guess you could say I stole it from him.
I had every reason to, though. It’s just sooooo good!
And besides, I didn’t really steal it, for he never gave me the actual recipe. He NEVER did share recipes.
I had to recreate this one from “flavor memory”.
I think I did a fairly good job!
You might find that, again, this is a strange combination, but it’s in fact extremely palatable.
Very delicate and mild in flavor, subtly sweet and slightly tangy, this is a dish that will undoubtebly please even the pickiest of eaters.
The chicken gets unbelievably moist and tasty, for it infuses in the fragrant steam of the apples and cabbage as it cooks…
Hmmmm…. Now I’m thinking that, next time, I might want to throw a few pecans into the mix.
And despite looking rather extensive to make, you will probably find that this dish comes together fairly easily… providing that you have a mandolin.
For indeed, you do need to slice everything very, very thinly. Getting the job done with a knife alone might prove to be a tad… tedious! But still, very well worth it.
You know what else I really, really like about this particular dish? You can actually prepare it the previous night and cook it the next day, or even the day after.
Just put in it the fridge after you’ve covered it with foil, and you’re all set.
Very convenient for those busy week nights!
