This week, while the rest of the French Fridays with Dorie cooks have been making mashed potato pancakes (which sound delicious by the way) I have been home recovering from minor surgery and cooking very little of anything. Therefore, I will have to catch up with the rest of the group later in the month. Instead, today I am posting a FFwD recipe which I made a couple of weeks ago, another one which I missed the first time around, Cinnamon-Crunch Chicken.
The holidays are here and that means that the grocery stores are laden with all manner of Christmas treats, which in Germany, include spekulatius cookies. And, while I have encountered these crunchy little cinnamon cookies before, it would never in a million years have occurred to me to serve them with chicken! Leave it to Dorie.
Her VERY simple recipe calls for minimal ingredients and almost no effort. Quick sautéed chicken is served with a sauce made of creme fraiche and spekulatius cookies. No kidding. And you know what? It’s surprisingly tasty. Really!
But I kind of already knew that it was going to be good because all my fellow FFwD cooks had already told me that it would be, and they are usually right. They also warned me not to expect any crunch, and they were right about that too. So now I am looking forward to reading what they have to say about those potato pancakes. Sometimes I wish that I could always do the recipes a week or so behind everyone else.
