It's Friday night and I didn't know what to cook. I already had in the fridge some old leftover wine, some fresh thyme, and some garlic. I decided to just go with it. I bought some chicken and some mushrooms and made a recipe so easy that I don't even need a recipe.
Dredge boneless, skinless thighs in flour (I used almond flour here) and cook in olive oil.
Mince 4 cloves of garlic and add that to the pan with some sliced mushrooms and fresh thyme (a tablespoon maybe?).
Deglaze pan with 1 cup of white wine. Reduce down a minute. Add a pat of butter.
Pour over chicken.
It's not a particularly special recipe, but goes to show you that you can easily cook dinner if you get creative with what you have in the house. It was a perfect "Casual Friday" meal.
Then there was breakfast.
I didn't eat all of those tomatoes in sherry sauce from earlier in the week and didn't know what to do with them. I had served some broccoli on the side that night as well and some of that was left over too.
I chopped the broccoli into little bits and warmed it in a pan with the tomatoes and some pancetta chunks. Two fried eggs went on top.
Eggs on tomato-broccoli hash!
I was expecting this to be a throwaway dish, but it turned out to be really delicious. Somehow all of the flavors worked really well together.
