The fridge was full of leftovers and we needed to make space for a huge turkey in a few days.
So I got busy ...
|Into the cast iron skillet went a cut up chicken seasoned with kosher salt, Greek seasoning, black pepper, kosher salt, thyme, and some Tony C's.|
|In the fridge, I found some leftover green beans, two baked potatoes, a hunk of onion, a box of fresh mushrooms, and of course, garlic.|
|While the seasoned chicken browned in the skillet, I cut the baked potato into chunks.|
|I chopped a few cloves of garlic and the onion too.|
The onions went into the cast iron dutch oven after I splashed it with grapeseed oil.
|Soon the mushrooms were clamoring to join the onions in the hot tub, so I tossed them in too.|
|Then the potatoes joined the tub party.|
|You know what happened next ... yup, the green beans stopped being wall flowers and joined the party.|
|Nothing gets a party going like fine, $3.00 wine from Walmart ...|
|... so I added it too.|
By this time the chicken had heard about the hot tub party next door and they crashed the scene.
|I cleaned up their mess with some of the wine and ...|
|... tossed it and the stragglers into the hot tub.|
|After everybody was in the hot tub, I sent them to the sauna, at 400 degrees F, for about 25 minutes.|
|The party turned out exactly as I hoped it would.|
Don't you love it when you "wing it" in the kitchen and the end product matches your expectation?
