    Pat’s Roasted Organic Chicken

    This is my mother’s recipe which I am publishing here for myself and everyone.  She is such a fantastic cook!  And she makes everything so easy.

    This is the recipe for the dish my step father used to make from the Craig Clairborne Cookbook.  I have adapted it slightly.   I tried it in the slow cooker, but it’s really not as good.  Plus since it only cooks 30-35 min, the stove top is fine and makes cleaning up easier. I really like the Pomi brand of tomatoes the best.  But you can use any kind of can of  chopped tomatoes.   Print Recipe Chinese Chicken Thighs with Ginger Garlic Tomato Sauce you make this on the stove top, Course Main Dish Cuisine Chinese Prep Time 15 min Cook Time 30 min Servings people Ingredients 2-3…

    Chicken Stock

    This is great to make and easy to store in the freezer.  You start with a roasted chicken that you get from the supermarket.  You feed your family with that, and save all the bones and the skin and the drippings in the container to put into your broth.  I will put in more details on how to make this later.   Print Recipe Chicken Stock Cuisine American Prep Time 30 min Cook Time 0 Servings Ingredients 1 Whole Roasted Chicken Cooked1 Yellow Onion2-3 Carrots1 rib CellerySalt and pepper, and any other herbs I eyeball this Cuisine American Prep Time 30 min Cook Time 0 Servings Ingredients 1 Whole Roasted…
