From My Kitchen: Creole Poached Chicken

When it comes to cooking, I absolutely love the fall and winter time. Soups, stews, roasts, all that good stuff is not only delicious, but also so much fun to cook. So get ready for me to shower you with awesome recipes, starting with this Creole dish that packs a bit of heat. It’s super healthy too!

What you’ll need:

  • 1 – 1 1/2 pounds of chicken breast
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup chopped bell pepper (you picks the color)
  • 1/2 cup chopped carrots
  • 2 cups canned stewed tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tsp ground thyme
  • 1//8 tsp red pepper
  • salt and pepper to taste

In a large skillet, heat oil, add onion, peppers and carrots. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, about 5 minutes. Stir in chicken, thyme, red pepper, then add salt and black pepper to taste. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low. Poach, partially covered, for 10 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through. (Cut the chicken into whatever shape you prefer, I chose large cubes).

Remove chicken and set aside, keep warm. Simmer the sauce for another 5 minutes. Plate the chicken on top of rice, then spoon sauce on top.

Bon Appétit!

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
