Today’s Menu: Leftover Chicken and Dumplings and Cornbread

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Partly sunny and 74 degrees outside today, 80 degree weather and dry on the way! I had to stick close to the phone and house. We are having trouble with our phone and cable TV and I had to wait around for the repairman to call and arrive. It was finally dry enough for them to mow our grass, and it needs it! It’s been so wet out that you couldn’t mow it. Did a few things around the house. For Dinner tonight its Leftover Chicken and Dumplings! No way these leftovers were going to go to waste! Mom makes the best Chicken and Dumplings there is! I have many an old room mate through the years that will back that up. I left the original post from yesterday for recipe and intsruction. Take care all!

My Mom is making her Chicken and Dumplings for Dinner Tonight! She used Bisquick Heart Smart Mix for the Dumplings and Tyson Split Chicken Breasts for the Chicken. She first made the Dumplings using a recipe found on Bisquick Boxes. Made those and set them aside until ready to use. My Grandmother and Mom both have used this same recipe since it came out on the Bisquick boxes.

 

For the Chicken. She boiled the Chicken Breasts in a pot until they were done adding more water to them twice. After the Chicken was cooked she removed them from the pot and roughly shredded it. Returned it to the pot of Broth or Stew and added the Dumplings, reducing the heat. Cooked the two together uncovered for 10 minutes and then another 12 minutes covered until they were done.

As I said these Dumplings just melt in your mouth! Just incredible flavor with the Chicken being moist and adding it’s flavor. Plus that incredible and thick broth that’s created while its all cooking is the thing that ties it all together! I can’t have these often, having Diabetes 2, but once in a while is just fine! It’s hard to resist these pillowy Dumplings of goodness!

 

As the Chicken and Dumplings were cooking I made the Cornbread. I made a small Cast iron Skillet of Cornbread. As always I used Martha White Corn Meal Mix, something I think I could eat everymeal. I like a nice fresh and hot slice with Butter on it. When I make this I just make it by the instructions on the package but I only use half the ingredients because I use a small cast iron skillet to make it. I use Egg Beaters and Extra Virgin Oil instead of Eggs and Vegetable Oil the recipe calls for. Bake at 450 degrees for about 25 minutes and you have some golden brown piping hot Cornbread! If you use a small cast iron skillet just cut the recipe in half and it comes out just right for the skillet size. What a dinner tonight! For Dessert/Snack a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels and a Sprite Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Chicken and Dumplings and Cornbread

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Scrambled a couple of Eggs, heated up a couple of Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, toasted a Thomas Light 100% Whole Grain English Muffin that I topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Rain showers on and off and 64 degrees outside. I got out my mask and gloves and headed off to Home Depot. I was going to buy a battery weed trimmer but they were already sold out. I’ll try again some time. Did a few things around the house. Anyway a real Dinner treat tonight! My Mom is making her melt-in-your mouth Chicken and Dumplings and some Cast Iron Skillet Cornbread.

One of America’s Favorites – Chicken and Dumplings

Chicken and dumplings

Chicken and dumplings is a soup that consists of a chicken cooked in water, with the resulting chicken broth being used to cook the dumplings by boiling. A dumpling—in this context—is a biscuit dough, which is a mixture of flour, shortening, and liquid (water, milk, buttermilk, or chicken stock). The dumplings are either rolled out flat, dropped or formed into a ball.

It is a popular comfort food dish, commonly found in the Southern and Midwestern United States, that is also attributed to being a French Canadian meal that originated during the Great Depression. Some sources say that chicken and dumplings originated in the Southern United States during antebellum era and was considered a mainstay during harsh economic times. One of the earliest versions of the recipe was cornmeal dumplings cooked with turnip greens. Chicken and dumplings as a dish is prepared with a combination of simmered chicken meat, broth produced by simmering the chicken, multiple dumplings, and salt and pepper for seasoning. Sometimes finely chopped vegetables, such as carrots and celery, are added to the broth, and herbs such as dill, parsley, thyme, or chives are added to the dumpling dough.

Various commercial preparations of chicken and dumplings are available, including canned and frozen versions of the prepared dish. Frozen raw dumplings, typically very flat strips about 1×4 inches, can be cooked in any broth. The consistency of the prepared dish, whether homemade or purchased, varies from a thin soup to a very thick casserole-like consistency, easily eaten with a fork. Thicker preparations are made by gently simmering the dumplings longer and/or adding flour or another thickening agent directly to the broth. Flour tortillas or canned biscuits, rolled thin on a floured surface, cut into strips, are a quick and easy substitute for homemade dough. Butter may be added to the recipe for added richness. Since chicken meat would become dry and tough if it is boiled long enough to cook the dumplings and thicken the broth, the chicken or parts are removed from the broth before adding the dumplings. While the dumplings are cooking, the meat is separated from the bones. When the dumplings are done and the broth seasoned and thickened, the chicken is returned to the broth. The dish is then ready to be served, but may be kept on low heat so as to not further cook the chicken.

Variations

Chicken and dumplings with vegetables

A variant known as “chicken and pastry” or simply “chicken pastry” features wide, flat noodles rolled from biscuit dough. Where such a distinction is made, it is sometimes considered a different dish from “chicken and dumplings”, which is known for small balls of dough rather than flat strips. In the Appalachian region of the United States, this preparation is called chicken and slicks. The Pennsylvania Dutch version is called bott boi. Chicken and dumpling soup is another variation, and is very popular in the Midwest.

Bott boi
Pennsylvania Dutch bott boi is a soup popular in central and southeastern Pennsylvania, also called chicken and dumplings in the American south. Bearing no resemblance to the baked dish known elsewhere as pot pie (itself known within Pennsylvania as “meat pies”), bott boi consists of large square noodles and a meat such as chicken, ham, or beef simmered in stock. Other common ingredients include potatoes, carrots, or celery. Saffron may also be added as a flavoring, particularly in Pennsylvanian restaurants catering to a niche market among the Pennsylvania Dutch farming communities.

Created to use up leftovers, Pennsylvania Dutch pot pie developed from the more widespread baked variety. Its characteristic noodles were added as a staple of the Pennsylvania Dutch and English diets. The ease of preparing it in large quantities has made it popular for fundraisers, community dinners, and other large-scale preparations.

Preparation
Bott boi is a soup of thick square-cut dough boiled in chicken broth. (Turkey or other poultry can be substituted for the chicken.) Potatoes and various vegetables may be added, and the broth can also be seasoned with saffron. The simple dough is made from flour and eggs, with a little water or milk.

 

One of America’s Favorites – Booyah (stew)

January 13, 2020 at 6:02 AM | Posted in One of America's Favorites | 4 Comments

American-style booyah stew

Booyah (also spelled booya, bouja, boulyaw, or bouyou) is a thick stew, believed to have originated in Belgium, and made throughout the Upper Midwestern United States. Booyah can require up to two days and multiple cooks to prepare; it is cooked in specially designed “booyah kettles” and usually meant to serve hundreds or even thousands of people. The name can also refer to a social event surrounding the meal.

In cooking booyah, one makes a base or broth derived from meat bones, to which vegetables are added. Beef, chicken, and pork are popular varieties of meat for booyah (with all three often in the same kettle), with vegetables such as carrots, peas, onion, and potatoes also in the mix. A wide variety of seasonings are used, sometimes lowered into the kettle in a cheesecloth bag. Typical large-scale booyah kettles can hold more than 50 US gallons and are made from steel or cast iron to withstand direct heat and the hours (or days) of cooking.

The term “booyah” may be a variant of “bouillon”. It is thought to have derived from the French language words for “boil” (bouillir) and “broth” (bouillon). The spelling with an H has been attributed to phonetic spelling by Wallonian immigrants from Belgium. The Dictionary of American Regional English attributes the term to French Canadian immigrants; others attribute it to a derivation from the Provençal seafood dish bouillabaisse.

An article in the Green Bay Press-Gazette on October 29, 1976, speculating on the origin of the spelling and related fundraiser event, reads:

Booyah seasoned with peas, granulated vegetables and chicken

Lester (Rentmeester) relates recollections of his schoolteacher father, Andrew, probably the “pioneer” of the word “booyah” . “At the old Finger Road School where he taught, funds were always in short supply,” he recalls. “So my father hit on the idea of a community picnic to raise money for the school. He went around to parents and neighbors, gathering up beef and chickens for the traditional Belgian soup that would be the main dish at the benefit affair. And he also went down to the office of the old Green Bay Gazette, looking for publicity.” The writer handling the news of the benefit picnic, so the story goes, asked what would be served. “Bouillon—we will have bouillon,” came the reply, with the word pronounced properly in French. “The young reporter wrote it down as he heard it,” Rentmeester relates. “It came out ‘booyah’ in the paper. It was booyah the first time it was served at Holy Martyrs of Gorcum Church—an affair my father also originated–and that’s what people have called it ever since.”

A November 19, 2015, Press-Gazette article repeats Rentmeester’s claim but also suggests that the dish “could have erupted as a tradition in multiple places at once”. The article notes that there are several variations on the name “booyah” around the Upper Midwest that “appear to be attempts to phonetically manage the hard-to-spell word ‘bouillon’, and they all are pronounced roughly the same”.

Booyah is still made in northern and northeastern Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula at county fairs, VFW gatherings, at booyah cooking contests, and in smaller amounts at private gatherings. In a 2018 article in the Post Crescent, Booyah was reportedly sold at church and other non-profit fundraisers for $20 (U.S. dollar) per gallon. The Green Bay Booyah baseball team was named after the stew.

Wild Idea Buffalo Recipe of the Week – Steak Au Poivre

November 6, 2019 at 6:02 AM | Posted in Wild Idea Buffalo | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

This week’s Wild Idea Buffalo Recipe of the Week is Steak Au Poivre. This week’s recipe uses the Wild Idea 5 oz. Top Sirloin Steaks along with Peppercorns, Unsalted Butter, Cognac, Organic Beef Broth, Cream, and Salt. You can find this recipe or purchase the Wild Idea Top Sirloin Steaks along with all the other Wild Idea Products at the Wild Idea Buffalo website. So Enjoy and Make 2019 Healthy One! http://wildideabuffalo.com/

Steak Au Poivre

This classic is timeless in taste and in elegance, and perhaps one of the all time greatest preparations that ever happened to a steak. Any fine cut steak will work, but my cooking time in this recipe is based on Wild Idea Buffalo’s 5 oz. Top Sirloin. Adjust your cooking time based on the size of your steak. I also use more cognac than broth as I prefer the richness and the aromas of the cognac, this too can be adjusted to your liking.

Ingredients:
2 – 5 oz. Top Sirloin Steaks (or other fine cut steaks)Steak Au Poivre
2 – tablespoons peppercorns, crushed
2 – tablespoons unsalted butter
½ – cup cognac
1/3 – cup buffalo broth or organic beef broth
3 – tablespoons cream
salt

Preparation:
1) Rinse steaks and pat dry.
2) Place peppercorns on a small plate and press the steaks into the peppercorns on both sides. Cover and set aside for one hour at room temperature.
3) Preheat the oven to 220°.
4) In a heavy saucepan or skillet over medium high heat, melt 1 tablespoon of the butter. Add the steaks immediately and sear each side for two minutes.
5) Using a tong, before removing the steaks from the pan, pick the steaks up one at a time and carefully sear the sides of the steak, while holding the steak with the tongs. About one minute per steak.
6) Remove the pan from the heat and transfer the seared steaks onto an ovenproof plate and cover with foil. Place the steaks in the preheated oven and shut the oven off.
7) Return the pan to medium high heat and melt the remaining tablespoon of butter and any remaining peppercorns from the plate. Do not let the butter brown.
8) Add the cognac in two batches to keep flame reasonable. The pan will ignite impressively, but then will quickly subside. Keep the pan lid close at hand to subdue should you need, or remove the pan from the heat and add the cognac to eliminate any flare-ups. Allow the cognac to reduce down to about half, stirring occasionalWild Idealy to scrape up the brown bits from the bottom of the pan.
9) Stir in the broth and continue to cook, reducing down to ¼ cup, or until sauce starts to thicken.
10) Whisk in the cream and a pinch of salt and allow the cream to slightly caramelize to a rich cognac color, whisking occasionally. This will take about 3 minutes. Remove sauce from heat.
11) To serve, place the steaks on plates and sprinkle with salt. Spoon the sauce over the steaks. Accompany with any kind of potatoes and vegetable of your liking.

Making homemade stock………..

Skimming is a Must. As the stock comes to its initial boil, use a slotted spoon to remove the foam that floats to the top. That’s excess protein, fat and bits of bone. This step ensures a clear, clean stock with a more intense, concentrated flavor.
