It has been approximately 47 million billion years since I cooked anything, but this is the first recipe we made in our new (temporary, sigh) kitchen. Simple and delicious. Yay for fresh corn.
Also, I am in love with "Dinner: A Love Story." Best blog (and now book) ever. We altered this based on what we had on hand, but I think it was pretty true to the original.
1 package spicy Italian chicken sausages [recipe calls for chorizo]
2 formerly frozen chicken breasts, thawed
1 medium onion, chopped
red pepper flakes (optional)
5 ears of corn, cut off the cob [if someone has a good, neat, easy way to do this, let me know. i made a giant mess.]
2 cups grape tomatoes [recipe has you halve them; we just threw them in the pot]
In a Dutch oven or large pot, brown sausage in olive oil over medium
heat until crispy. Remove.
Raise heat to medium-high and brown chicken
(in batches if necessary) on both sides until mostly cooked through.
Remove. Turn down heat to medium-low, add onion, salt, pepper, pepper
flakes, and a little more oil if necessary. Stir until slightly wilted.
Add corn and tomatoes and stir until vegetables release their juices.
Nestle chicken and sausage back in the vegetables, cover and simmer
another 5-10 minutes until chicken is cooked through. [Here's where we added the extra broth, which the recipe didn't call for -- there just wasn't enough liquid to keep cooking anything or qualify as "stew," probably because we hadn't cut the tomatoes.]
Serve with basil
and crusty bread in bowls, or separate into individual components for
the kid who doesn’t like things “mixed” and serve on a plate.
