Dang it! The Creamy Dill Sauce that I had made to accompany the fish got forgotten and remained in the fridge.

Beautiful dish

So, over here I was lamenting the loss of a vinegar chicken recipe  .  My mom happened to read it and sent me an email saying "is this it?".  I had sent her the recipe years ago and she kept it.  Sigh.  Always ask your mom....she's like my own personal backup/cloud.

 

So very happy to have the recipe again.  It hit the spot last night.

It would be good with pork!

 

 

Vinegar Chicken

 

1 free-range chicken or fryer, 3 1/2 to 4 pounds, cut into 8 pieces, rinsed and patted dry 
2 teaspoons salt 
3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 
8 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into small pieces 
1 tablespoon vegetable oil 
6 cloves garlic, unpeeled 
1 cup good-quality white wine vinegar 
2 tomatoes, peeled, seeded and chopped, about 1 cup 
2 cups chicken stock 
2 tablespoons creme fraiche or heavy cream 
Chopped parsley, garnish

Season the chicken evenly on both sides with the salt and pepper. 
In a large Dutch oven, melt 2 tablespoons of the butter with the oil over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and garlic cloves and cook until the chicken is well browned, turning once, about 8 to 10 minutes per side. Add the vinegar and stir to loosen any browned bits on the bottom of the pan. Add the tomatoes, cover the pot and reduce the heat to medium. Cook until the chicken is tender, about 25 minutes. Transfer the chicken pieces to a warmed platter and cover to keep warm. 

Add the chicken stock to the pot and bring to a boil, scraping any browned bits that cling to the sides or bottom of the pan. Cook until the sauce is reduced by 1/3 in volume, about 10 minutes. Strain the sauce through a fine sieve and return to the pan, discarding the solids. Reduce the heat to low. Add the remaining butter, a piece at a time, whisking constantly until all the butter has been added and the sauce is smooth and thick. Do not allow the sauce to boil and remove from the heat as necessary to prevent from breaking. Add the creme fraiche and whisk to combine. Adjust the seasoning to taste. 

Ladle the sauce over the chicken and garnish with the parsley.

 

****Note--I don't strain the sauce.  I like it chunky.

I am a meat eater by heart, but if I could get all that imaginative food you dish out on a daily basis @shain, I doubt I would miss much ...

 

Fantastic !

Chicken yakitori with a cucumber salad.  Even though I made this myself I will go out on a limb and say this chicken was fantastic. On the other hand I am afraid to go back into my kitchen.  The cleanup will be a beast as I did it in a grill pan.:o

It's not the prettiest plate of food I've ever made, but it tasted good. Chicken thighs with cabbage and potatoes. The thighs were sous-vided from frozen at 165 F for 2 hours, 10 minutes, and then crisped in a carbon steel pan.

@Daily cooking, enjoyed the video.  Even showed it to Moe.   I think I will have to give this a try.  Thank you.

 

I wasn't hungry last night so it was a good night to make Moe and Matt a salad. They both love salads and I would be happy if I never ate a salad.

Mediterranean Tomato salad. I used at least 8 different varieties of tomatoes from our garden. Red, brown, black, yellow, orange, cherry, plum, etc.... with red onion, Kalamata olives, feta cheese, oregano, salt, pepper, toasted pistachios, with a lemon, olive oil and garlic vinaigrette .

Thai yellow curry, with soft tofu, mushrooms, peas and a fried egg (sorry, no pic of the yolk action).

Today is my son's name day or "saint", as per Catalan tradition. For my wife this equals his birthday, so we had presents, extra quality time and a nice dinner out ...

Tonight thus "Gyu-Kaku", Japanese-Korean barbeque with plenty of choices, including my sons (current) favorite chicken wings.

He was a happy camper (in a slightly awkward pose) and all of us enjoyed the fantastic view of HK islands skyline (and the food, of course) ...

Well, some of the items might have been for sharing - "sharing is caring" - and truth to be told the free-flow of Sapporo draft was also not primarily geared towards him. But he got his chicken wings 😉

I also had this view, with light show, at Quarterdeck (only went there for oysters, bubbly and lobsters).
