Cannibal's platter

Post by cannibal » Sat Aug 04, 2018 2:08 am

Honey spiced Chicken with orange sauce. My understanding is this is a traditional Israeli dish. Certainly influenced by mediterranean cooking and very similar to other med. dishes I have cooked in the past.
Easy peezy this one and as easy as it is a nice balanced group of flavors for a little effort.

Brown some quartered chicken (skin on) in a big gob of butter. Of course salt and pepper it first. After your first turn of the pieces sprinkle some paprika all to your taste.
Next in a bowl mix 1 or so cups of OJ, 1/4 cup of honey, 2 tablespoons of Lemon juice, a little salt, pepper, nutmeg, paprika, ginger, and my own twist a tad of cayenne pepper. Take your browned chicken throw it in a casserole dish dump your mix over it, throw some sliced onion over top of that as well as some pitted black olives. Stuff that shit in the oven at 350 covered for about 35-40 minutes.
When your chicken is done, set aside. Dump the sauce from the casserole dish in a sauce pan, thicken with corn starch. Cut some orange slices to top it off.

I served this over steamed rice, that I added orange peel, oregano, virgin olive oil, and again a bit of paprika and cayenne pepper.

Three things that made this a bang up dish of flavor:
1. I used dark meat which complimented the earthy flavor of the black olive and was balanced out nicely by the acid of the fresh orange slices. It works trust me.
2. The cayenne pepper, just a pinch or two makes for a little bit of heat and complexity that brings the whole thing to something far better than an average med dish you find in a cook book designed for white people.
3. Oregano in the rice with the orange peel just gave the whole thing a bit of flavor more. Look the Italians have known since the dawn of dago hood that Oregano and acid just works to make a nice rich biting flavor.

I was pretty pleased with how it all came out as my initial reading of it left me unimpressed as how fucking boring from the Irsraelis. But I gave it a go and certainly a easy dish I can work into the rotation when pressed for time.

this one is pretty decent on calorie count. I looked it up and its 340 calories per serving.

Save about 25 calories by removing skin, breast meat and using a small gob of butter instead of Cannibal's requisite head sized gob.
This sauce is pretty nice and one could easily get rid of the rice and use greens heavy on spinach with some romain or iceberg lettuce, and other assorted spring greens all chopped up and then sauce it with some you have let cool. That will knock off probably 80 calories. These two changes could bring you into the range of about 240 per serving.

I take very little food to work as if it's there I just eat it. Have to be very careful what I keep in the kitchen
