This week, I made my favorite Chicken Curry dish in the slowcooker instead of on top of the stove. It came out really good. There ended up being too much sauce, but that’s not really a problem, now is it? I will definitely make in in the slowcooker again.
I’ve made fried chicken a couple of times now this summer, after a break from making it of about 17 years. lol Of course, the family loves it! I used thin cut boneless skinnless chicken breast, but next time, I will probably cut them myself instead of paying extra for it. The cream gravy is the best! It really is an easy dish to make, just a little time consuming. Using the thin cut chicken speeds up the process. Of course, you have to have mashed potatoes to go with the gravy!The first time I made this, this summer, I had the kids peel the potatoes. I made extra, and put half in the freezer. It sure was nice to just pull the mashed potatoes out of the freezer, instead of making them again!
I don’t make pork that often, but my husband picked some out at the store. These were boneless, so they took less cooking time. I served them with oven fried potatoes, peas and carrots, and homemade applesauce.
I just love my cast iron skillet. I use it all the time. I actually have 5 cast iron skillets, but I use this big 12 inch one the most. I can get a nice brown on my fried chicken and pork in this skillet without using a lot of oil.
