''Sure to Please'' Chicken Cacciatore

''Sure to Please'' Chicken Cacciatore

May 12, 2009

I like to prepare dishes for guests that allow me to enjoy their company. In order to do this, I select dishes that can be prepared before the guests arrive and are already cooking while we are enjoying their company. My "Sure to Please" Chicken Cacciatore is a prime example of this. Over time I have made several adjustments to enhance the flavour while at the same time using healthy alternatives (eg. skinless chicken thighs and breasts; I saute ingredients in extra virgin olive oil instead of butter). Because this dish has an Italian flare, so do all the other dishes that I serve before, during and after this meal. I serve an antipasta tray as an appetizer, and toasted garlic bread, a tossed green salad with an oil and vinaigrette dressing, whole wheat spaghetti, and the same wine that is in the cacciatore. For dessert I serve Tiramisu (also made ahead). As a result, most of my work is complete before company arrives. I have shared this recipe with women who say they do not cook and I have received rave reviews from all of them - their guests loved it so much that one man ate the leftovers for breakfast the next morning. I like to make this dish in the summer, when I can use fresh produce from my vegetable garden or from the local farmer's market. My inspiration for this recipe is that I love to cook and entertain. This recipe is full of flavour, easy to prepare and tastes like you were in the kitchen all day (what a bonus!).

Pair up these two Ontario products for a spectacular rolled and barbecued roast. Buy a few of each mushroom - button, cremini, shiitake (use caps only) and oyster - for the stuffing. Wrapping the roast in bacon imparts smoky flavour and keeps the meat moist. It would be hard to deny that bacon makes everything taste better.

Portuguese piri-piri sauces and dry spice rubs are rife with heat and zesty flavour. While piri-piri is made from a variety of ingredients, it's the fiery chili and fresh citrus that really stand out. These kabobs make everything sizzle.

Mixed Mushroom Risotto with Lentils

Mixed Mushroom Risotto with Lentils

May 12, 2009

This recipe is done in a pressure cooker (I use a 6 quart Fagor) with a triple-ply base. I am always trying different recipes in the pressure cooker. Risotto is one of my favourites. I use it as the main dish with the addition of lentils. With or without lentils, I serve it as a side to roasted salmon with wilted spinach. I specify arborio rice but use Carnaroli or Vialone Nano, if you can find either, for the best results. Green lentils are used since they hold their shape in a pressure cooker. Romano cheese is my personal preference over parmesan.

A traditional fermented Korean side dish, kimchi is a sweet and spicy combination of sliced cabbage, other vegetables and seasonings. About a day after jarring the kimchi, you will begin to see bubbles in the liquid; this is a sign that the fermentation process is working.
