    I made Thai Chicken Stew with Potato-Chive Dumplings this weekend. it was awesome.

    from foodandwine.com:

    ingredients
    1/2 pound baking potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
    2 tablespoons canola oil
    1 pound skinless, boneless chicken thighs, cut into 1-inch pieces
    1 large onion, finely chopped
    1 large jalapeño—halved, seeded and thinly sliced
    1/4 cup Asian fish sauce
    3 cups chicken stock or low-sodium broth
    2 tablespoons all-purpose flour, plus more for rolling
    1 large egg yolk
    2 tablespoons minced chives
    Salt
    1 pound baby bok choy, cut into 1-inch pieces
    1 tablespoon cornstarch dissolved in 1 tablespoon water
    2 tablespoons shredded basil leaves
    Lime wedges, for serving



    directions
    Put the potatoes in a medium saucepan and cover with hot water. Cook over high heat until tender, about 12 minutes.

    Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large, heavy casserole. Add the chicken and cook over high heat until lightly browned, 4 minutes. Add the onion and jalapeño and cook, stirring, until the onion is softened, 4 minutes. Add 3 tablespoons of the fish sauce and the stock and bring to a boil. Cover and cook over moderate heat until the chicken is just cooked through, about 10 minutes.

    Using a slotted spoon, transfer the potatoes to a ricer and press into a bowl. (Alternatively, mash the potatoes.) Reserve the potato water. Add the 2 tablespoons of flour, egg yolk, chives and 1/2 teaspoon of salt to the potatoes and stir until a stiff dough forms. Turn the dough out onto a heavily floured board and divide it in half. Roll each piece into a 1/2-inch-thick rope. Cut the ropes into 1-inch pieces.

    Add the bok choy to the stew and cook until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Add the cornstarch mixture and cook, stirring, until thickened, 1 minute.

    Return the potato water to a boil and add the dumplings. Cook over high heat until they rise to the surface, then simmer for 2 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to the chicken stew. Add the basil and the remaining 1 tablespoon of fish sauce and simmer the stew for 2 to 3 minutes. Serve with lime wedges.

    Favorite thing to make for me is sauteed shrimp in garlic and olive oil, over angel hair pasta. I make a light sauce of white wine, roma tomatoes, fresh basil, and fresh italian parsley. Simple, but tasty!

    My favorite thing is to cut up fresh asparagus and portobello mushrooms and place them in a skillet over medium heat with some olive oil for 10 or so minutes. It's sooooo good. The asparagus turns out tender yet crisp. And makes your pee smell funny to boot!

    I make a kick ass tortilla soup that everyone can customize based on their likes/dislikes. I'll find the recipe at home and post it.

    i love throwing dinner parties but i do not like cooking. i always wrangle my friend into cooking and i do the logistics and make dessert because baking = love.

    our last menu (we had to scale down and go not so fancy because of budget constraints):
    bruschetta

    pan-fried prosciutto-wrapped chicken with risotto (saffron, parmiggiano reggiano, vegetables, yumminess) and green beans

    chocolate pavlova with raspberries

    Caitlin, I make a twist on chicken cordon bleu that's really easy. Don't use ham, though.

    I flatten chicken breasts, salt and pepper both sides, with a bit of olive oil. Then put swiss cheese and fresh sage in the middle, and wrap it up, and tie it with butcher's twine. Then, I sear it in a frying pan, then put in the oven for about 15-20 minutes.
    I make a light sauce with chicken broth, s&p, white wine, and lemon juice. Once the chicken is done, just drizzle on the sauce. Very tasty!

    Boneless skinless chicken breasts
    Or
    Chicken on the bone (qtrs, split breast, etc…)

    Boneless skinless chicken breasts
    -Grill in pan until done
    -Cut or shred

    Chicken on the bone- More work
    -Bring pot of water to boil
    -Throw in chicken, add in chiles, seasoning etc...
    -Pull chicken out after 20 min or so (I check temp of chicken and color)
    -Get two forks and start pulling chicken off of bone, it will fall off and shred really easily

    I like to warm up (on stove) a can or two of Las Palmas Green Chile Enchilada sauce, and put the shredded/cut chicken into it. It makes the time in the oven a lot less.

    Depending on time, either pre shredded Monterey cheese or a large block of Monterey cheese. If a block, cut into smaller blocks about the size and length of a finger or two.

    Next step, corn or flour tortillas

    Corn,
    Fry in oil for about 30 sec, golden brown and slightly crispy

    Flour,
    Warm in you want, it not ready to go

    Fill tortilla of your choice with chicken in green chile enchilada sauce, and put in cheese. Roll tortilla and put in a casserole pan, continue until full. Pour enough green chile sauce to cover tortillas, and cover in cheese. Put in oven for 15-20 until cheese is completely melted, and enjoy.
