Previous Saturday I had just woken up, when Cookies was going out to work and by his sophisticated goodbye I heard: what are we eating today WOMAN? just lovely, when you wake up groggy after a Friday night marathon of Danny Trejo movies 0_o Unfortunately I shouldn’t repeat my answer, but you can simply imagine, it was in polish and really rude. And of course, I heard the bastards evil laugh on the stairs. I snuggled back to my pillow and tried to catch another 15 min but Sam The Lab had another idea for my morning, He came to my bed, climbed on and stuck his cold nose on the base of my neck and poked me, like saying walk me mommieeee or more likely feed meee mommieee. I had to get up and just start my day at 7am on Saturday… After I dealt with Mr Dog, I went to the freezer to check what do I have, and well, there was a lot of stuff but I didn’t feel inspired. Either way I had to go to the store for my favourite hot dogs, so I decided I will get the inspiration there. Thankfully it was still early so the store wasn’t too crowded and my favourite lady was working the counter, so I could procrastinate as much as I felt like. She even tried to help but I didn’t feel like baked chicken or pork loin cutlets. Felt like something we didn’t eat for long. Then she said it: Chicken has other parts too, you know, not only breasts… BINGO in that split second I knew what I will make, chix legs stewed in a creamy sauce… on rice (didn’t feel like peeling pots o_o), and mizeria…
- whole chix legs - 3
- 18% sour cream - 200ml
- tarragon - to taste
- chili - to taste
- salt, pepper - to taste
- chives - to taste
Split legs in the joint, clean. In the big skillet heat like hmmmz, 2-3 tbsp of oil. Put the chix in. Brown fast on high from each side. Pour water or bouillon, enough to cover the meat, keep on high, until the liquid starts boiling. Turn the heat down. Add some hot liquid to sour cream and stir good, this way you will avoid the “cheese” that cream can change into. Add spices and stir all, making sure all goodies from the bottom are loose. Cook until chicken is done and liquid creamy. If it doesn’t cream, you can stir in a 1-2 tbsp flour.
Serve on rice or pots or even groats of any kind, sprinkled with fresh chives and with fresh salad. I served accompanied by english cucumber salad with greek yogurt, (in Poland we call this salad mizeria.)
Until next time, take care of yourself and each other 0_o
P.S. Cookies thoughts: Well, at least it wasn't GRILLED CHIX again :) w/ Couscous with Tomatoes, so its already a +1 meal. HAHA, either way, Magda Cooks… it just right.
