The Chicken Curry That Put My Broken Family Back Together Again via Food52

June 1st, 2020 Comments off

My strongest childhood memories are not from my own childhood. They belong to my father. I think of them often—children picking mangoes straight off the tree, chickens running free around the house, men measuring their wealth by the cows they own, and a village taking care of its many, many children—but I think of them most when I braise chicken in curry.

The chicken curry itself is a recipe passed down by my father. Each time he’d prepare it, and we’d sit down to eat as a family, the stories would flow. It became how we understood where he came from: not just through his stories, but in the ritual of eating in the same traditions.

Coronavirus Kitchen – One Pot Chicken Marsala

March 21st, 2020 Comments off

Tonight’s dinner was my own ”cheater” version of chicken marsala – one of Rosanne’s favorite dishes.

My version is a bit of a hodgepodge without a recipe but here my take.

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tbls Olive Oil
  • 2 tsp corn starch
  • 1 lb chicken breast
  • 1 cup milk or 1/2 cup half-n-half
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 1 cup Marsala Wine (or more to taste)
  • 1 tsp oregano or majorum
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • 1 lb spaghetti or other pasta
  • 2 tsp butter

Directions:

Heat olive oil in large pan with lid
Season chicken with salt and paper.
Dredge in corn starch and shake off excess
Fry chicken breast until mostly cooked through
Add onions and garlic
Saute onions and garlic
When lightly browned add spaghetti to pan
Add chicken stock, oregano, parsley, stock, marsala wine, milk, butter
Add more stock or water to cover spaghetti, if needed
Season with salt and pepper as desired
Cover with lid and bring to boil, then set heat to low
Simmer until spaghetti is almost cooked through
Remove lid, raise heat to medium and reduce sauce to consistency of your choice
Serve

Might as well make the best of being stuck at home.
Joseph whipped up a batch of his Japanese-style curry for us all.

We visited my sister in Palm Springs this weekend, and she took us to this amazing place out at Trilogy. 
Since it is the summer, the place was empty and we got personalized attention as well as this wonderful food. All of us kept commenting on the food well into the evening.

More people at our table than usual

These days it is usually just Rosanne and me at the dining room table or occasionally 2 friends for dinner. Back in December, though, we hosted 6 members of our Sicilian family and the dining room was almost standing room only. 

This was their first day in town, so we greeted them with the quintessential LA meal of In-n-Out. 😀

Every other meal at home, though, looked more like our Italian meals when visiting them. They might have experienced the US and LA when we went out, but evenings cocooned them in a sense of normal home life.
