|CHICKEN BASQUAISE or FAJITA?|
The idea of liver anything is not exciting to me. I'm up for trying new foods, however, liver is not in the family plan. I grew up eating liver and onions on many Friday nights like some of my friends grew up eating fish on Fridays...Mother taught us that liver is necessary weekly for healthy iron levels in women and growing children...but my iron is great and I don't eat liver, so it has become an unnecessary food and has also become a bit repulsive...and that included chicken liver!
There, that said, I've chosen a make-up recipe...regretfully, I've missed quite a few during the past year. I looked at the write-up for Chicken Basquaise and it said, "Make me." I need to cook dinner for 3 or 4 of my men who will be at home tonight, and this recipe looks inviting.
Somehow what began as a French dinner turned to a Spanish dinner. Does that ever happen to you? As I gathered the ingredients, which are all standard items in my kitchen, I had the thought to turn this dish into fajitas. With onions, peppers, chiles, chicken, and cilantro for a garnish this list begs to be tucked into a warm tortilla with a daube of sour cream, a little cheese, and slices of avocado...and there you have it, delicious fajitas.
Dorie suggests white rice, for serving, but a tortilla is just as good.
I'll visit your blogs to view your chicken livers with pickled onions, but I'll be enjoying AZ style Chicken Basquaise tonight.
Hope you all have a great week!
