I started by cooking a couple of strips of Bacon for breakfast and then used the fat to start the cooking of the Chicken Thighs (skin on and bone in)
Next I gathered the veggies with an eye to aromatics. 1) Olive Oil, 2) Parsley, 3) Carrots, 4) Onions, 5) Celery, 6) Baby Portobello Mushrooms, 7) Dried Apricots, 8) Mediterranean Olives, and 9) Capers
Assemble in skillet with some Chicken Stock, too. Season with: minced with Garlic, Oregano, Thyme, Rosemary, Salt and Pepper. Cover and slow roast on stovetop (2-3 hours)
Served with couscous prepared with diced Zucchini and Broccoli.
I was born on a bitterly cold end of January night in the year 1961. It was seven years to the day after the birth of Oprah Winfrey, and one year before the death of Robert Frost on that same day. Cool associations both.
I was the first child of older parents (my mother was 42). I love the color yellow. I am single, and fascinated with life.
