Another night of “what to cook” for dinner…?
Well, searching through Gordon Ramsay’s Fast Food cookbook, and I find:
Baked Chicken with eggplant, zucchini and tomato ragout…well, I don’t have half of the items needed…so I will just wing it.
Saute the chicken, seasoned with coarse salt and pepper (I used rib-bone in chicken breasts) in olive oil. Remove from pan, set aside.
Chopped the onions, garlic, and rosemary (fresh). Cook until the onions are translucent. Add 1 can of diced tomatoes, and 2 glasses of white wine. Simmer and reduce by half.
Add chicken back into the sauce and simmer for 30 minutes. Then add 1 cup of heavy cream, and 1/2 block of cream cheese (mix together so it won’t curdle when placed in the hot sauce). Simmer for 15-20 minutes more and serve over rice.
I also, cooked carrots…just simmered sweet. Yum.
Recipe below. Enjoy!
