The wife left this morning( Monday) to her granny's funeral (God bless her soul) in Ontario and I am left to babysit Bentley and Baily,,,http://www.pbase.com/tgdusty/puppy ....... so much for having a nice family day LOL.....
Anyway ,after editing the photos for the previous post I figured that eventually one needs some nutrition
Pulled a couple of pork medallions and a half chicken from the freezer,,,, really not to much inspiration there but what the heck, food is food and one has to eat,,turns out it was a great meal
Here is the recipe:
1-1/2 chicken deboned and flattened skin side down
In a food processor add the following ingredients and pule until you have a smooth mixture
6-oz of pork loin cubed
2-slices of bacon
2-oz of coffee cream
1-.25 teaspoon of salt
crushed black pepper
Keep in mind that you can spice it up a bit with some hot pepper (smoked chippolte in adobe would be ideal)
Place the mixture in the center of the stretched chicken and roll,tie it with butchers twine ,sear on all sides in a hot pan, (the removed bones can be used to set the chicken roll on when placed in the oven and left on the pan to make the gravy) season the outside with salt and pepper and place in a 350 oven for 45 to 50 minutes or until the thermometer registers 165 F. remove from oven and let rest.
In the mean time add chopped dates to the pan the chicken was roasting deglaze the pan with .5 cup of white wine, reduce till half,add1 cup of chicken stock and bring to boil .In a small bowl add .5 table spoon of flour to 3 table spoons of water and mix well and mix into the stock,bring to boil and simmer 6/8 minutes to cook the flour ,season with salt and pepper
