Also, someone from my training class was kind enough to let me hitch a ride across town home, so thankful for that! Alls well that ends well, guess that’s how the story goes 😉
Dinner tonight was a bit of a different recipe that I decided to try out, it had been calling my name for a few months now (yea, I know, there’s just so many out there!)
I ended up making some changes to Mrs. Ray’s original Pan Fried Pork with Blueberries to come up with this one:
Yes, you read that correctly haha. I told you it was a lil’ different! But in such a good way 🙂
Here was the starting team:
- chicken tenderloins
- 1 tblsp + 1tsp EVOO (so Rachel 😉 )
- onion, chopped
- 1.5 cups chicken broth
- 1/4 cup flour
- 1.5 cups frozen blueberries
- 1 tblsp butter (Icelandic!)
Got started by sauteing the onion for a few minutes in 1 tsp EVOO, adding some salt & pepper of course.
Then added the chicken broth and blueberries, bringing it up to a boil.
After that I turned the heat down to medium and let it simmer away until it reduced by about half…. guess what else snuck it’s way in there!
Plus a lil’ squirt of agave to sweeten things up 😛 After it had reduced, I added the butter
The color was just gorgeous, and check out the sheen that the hint of butter added to finish the sauce!
While this was going on I also prepped up the chicken, so easy and made the nicest “crust” on the outside — never tried this basic method before but I see so many ideas already a’brewin’!!
Dip chicken in the flour that has been seasoned with S&P
Coated it up and added to a hot pan with 1 tblsp EVOO, turning to flip as it cooked through.
Once this was dunzo it was time to serve!
Oh folks, that Rachael Ray knows what she is talkin’ about 😉 This recipe was so different, so easy and so good…. !
But wait, that’s not all folks…. we’re missing some veggies here 😛
The pecans & apples were a fabulous combo – loved loved loved this salad!
