It's that time of the week again ... French Fridays with Dorie. For anyone new around here, we (the members of an online cooking group) are cooking our way through Dorie Greenspan's new cookbook, Around My French Table.
I have to admit, when I saw this week's recipe, I intended on skipping it. I'm not into cooking meat and pork didn't sound appealing in the least bit. I thought I'd rather spend my time & resources trying a different new recipe that might be more interesting for my family & me. BUT Hubby saw the recipe and got excited about it, so we decided to team-up and give it a whirl. We made ours with chicken breast instead of pork and I made Hubby do all the cutting and cooking of the meat.
We went to 2 different grocery stores and couldn't find some of the ingredients so we improvised a little bit. I wished that some of the flavors were a little stronger, but overall everyone really enjoyed this recipe. We decided to serve ours on top of rice instead of egg noodles and I'm glad we made that choice cause the rice soaked up some of the juices and that was my favorite part!
