Lemon Roasted Chicken, Fried Green Beans And Collards With Hard Boiled Egg
This may not look like much but it was outstanding. The chicken was roasted in a cast iron pan with wedges of lemon and tomato along with garlic and thyme. It had previously marinated in crushed pepper and olive oil for a good hour. The beans were blanched and left to soak in a mixture of buttermilk, curry powder and garlic for about four hours and then rolled in spicy flour before being fried. They were then tossed with raw garlic and cilantro. The collards were sauteed in oil with garlic and onion and left to stew for about five minutes. I then added the hard boiled egg and some garbonzo beans. The whole thing was out of this world. I got the idea for the fried beans from the 'dinner files' blog that you will see on the blogs I follow. It is a blog worth checking out . Lots of ideas for soups and the like.
