At about 2 am last night I was watching Jacques Pepin cooking videos on Facebook. I enjoy watching him because he makes it seem so easy to make meal and that is what I love. When I saw him make this dish I knew what was for dinner! Watching him make it in less than 15 minutes I had to try it.
Verdict: So this is a semi fail for me. I ended up overcrowding the pan which steamed the chicken rather than frying it in batches as I knew I should. The chicken didn’t get that nice browned outside which helps give it more flavor. I was in a rush and didn’t think about it. Take the tip and fry the chicken in small batches if you do not have a big enough pan.
This dish was super simple and paired well with buttered egg noodles and green beans. It was simple and easy. A perfect weekday meal.
