I like cooking different dishes. Tonight’s dinner was chicken quarters, potato wedges, and broccoli with cheese sauce. The chicken quarters had been bought on sale a while ago.
I threw a few pieces into each freezer bag and mixed up various marinades and threw them in. This was essentially oil, lemon juice, garlic and salt I think. Can’t quite remember…
Anyway I pulled them out of the freezer yesterday and had them in the frig but they weren’t totally thawed so I used the microwave to finish thawing. I laid them skin side up in a baking dish and started them at 350, planning on an hour’s cooking time.
However, I then decided to try some potato wedges that needed to be baked at 400. The potatoes were scrubbed and cut into fourths length-wise, then dipped in melted butter , then rolled in a mixture of bread crumbs, grated Parmesan cheese (about 1/2 cup each), paprika (1/2 tsp), and garlic powder (1/2 tsp). Laid them in a single layer in a baking dish. They needed about 35 minutes so when the chicken had been baking a half an hour, I turned up the oven and added the potato wedges.
The broccoli was fresh. I generally just "steam" it in the microwave. It stays nice and green that way and doesn’t get mushy. I cut it into chunks and put in a covered dish with a few table-spoons of water and microwaved about 3 minutes. I made up a cheese sauce and poured that into the broccoli, then covered with the leftover bread crumbs from the chicken and baked it for the final 15 minutes with everything else.
The girls pronounced everything but the broccoli "3 stars", especially the potatoes. The broccoli they happily ate when I mentioned the delicious chocolate ice cream we had for desert and pronounced it "not too bad."
Спасибо, Людмила! Жаль, что нет фото этого великолепия:)). Будем смотреть на него в своих тарелках, когда опробуем Ваш рецепт.
