Lazy Sunday dinner
Lucky you, two posts in one day. I made this chicken recipe tonight. It's pan-seared chicken with beer-mustard sauce. You pan sear the chicken first - I did it in my cast iron skillet - then roast it in the oven. Then with the chicken fat, you make a roux and add shallots, beer, chicken stock, mustard, maple syrup, thyme... The recipe calls for oil when pan searing the chicken but I left that out.
Served it with rice and kale braised in chicken stock, balsamic vinegar and meyer lemon juice.
Really good, not that much of a pain in the ass, and enough for lunch tomorrow.
