Opa! Wait…or is that Oh, Pass the Chicken? It’s all Greek to me..Chicken / February 21, 2017
I must say canned artichokes really are easy. Which is good because they will take center stage tonight. And because I was tired, remember I said I was tired? Yes, I am TIRED… I decided that I didn’t even want to bring out a saucepan. I would bake the chicken in the oven, and recline, nearly prone, across the countertop while it cooked… Blah, blah, blah….
I’m not sure when the “happy” kicked in. Maybe it’s when I whack that first clove of garlic and it released that familiar pungent perfume. Maybe it’s when I started to cut up the kalamata olives eating one then cutting one, then eating one. For sure I got happy when I began whisking the creamy tzatziki and we’ve cranked up the music nice and loud. I think that’s when I stopped being tired and started getting danged excited.
By the time the chicken began roasting and the rosemary was gently perfuming the thinly sliced yukon potatoes sauteeing in butter, (yes, I did pull out a pan….well, it got fun!) we were laughing and forgetting about the fact that Tuesday can be a tough day. We were glad I was low on fresh ingredients. And we simply raised a fork to scavenging.
