Food Thread: A Butter-Smeared Chicken In Every Pot!

ChipotleChicken.jpg

I guess there is a recipe for what I made last night, but it's just a standard roast chicken with a compound butter under the skin and smeared on the top as much as I could. I didn't do a great job of that, and you can tell by the pale spots, but it sure did taste good, so this one is a keeper.

The compound butter was four ounces of butter, four teaspoons of lemon juice, about a tablespoon of chopped chipotle peppers, and of course S&P. The butter has to be room temperature or you will make a mess and still fail, and microwaving the butter might get you a messy microwave and some melted butter, so better to just leave it on the counter for a couple of hours.

Then just use a small whisk and gently mix in the ingredients until you get a lovely smooth compound butter that would be great on anything! Put most of it under the skin of the breasts and the legs, and the rest on the skin on top.

If someone can think of a better way to do it than smearing it around with your hands, I am all ears!

Oh...400 degrees for about 45 minutes...until the probe reads 155 degrees. And I put the spatchcocked chicken on a bed of sliced onions so they could soak up all of the excess butter.

Yes...it goes wonderfully on the chicken. Or plain. It's chicken-chipotle-lemon-flavored butter...of course it's going to taste great!

planetfeeling.jpg

I believe that. But don't worry...the idea that we as a species are going to have a profound effect on this planet is stunningly arrogant and even more stunningly stupid. If we tried to destroy the earth, a few thousand years after our demise the earth would be back to doing what it does best...not giving a f*ck about us.

So eat beef and pork and chicken and lamb and all of those tasty fish from the oceans' abundance, and enjoy it with a clear conscience, knowing that in the grand scheme of things we aren't even a pimple on the earth's butt.

Oh...don't let the lunatic left hijack our language. Calling it "protein" is a way to detach our food from our society, and it is a malign influence. They want us to think that all protein is interchangeable, so that we will eat bugs and be happy.

I like making chili, although I have lots of different ways of making it. When I just want something tasty in the refrigerator I will buy ground beef and make a quick and easy pot (yes...with beans). But occasionally I will make it from chuck I cut myself into small bite-sized pieces. When I spend the time to do that I also toast good chilies, use fresh herbs where appropriate, and otherwise take it seriously as a dish.

That doesn't mean that my quick and easy version is substandard...I think it's great, and I love having a bowl of it for pretty much every meal, including breakfast. Yeah...put a fried egg on top and you have yourself a feast!

But coarse ground beef is a very rare thing, and I don't know why. Personally, I think burgers made from a coarse grind are great, and when I grind my own I never do a double grind. But quick and easy doesn't include grinding the meat, so I am stuck with what my market has to offer.

Bastards!

crispywings.jpg

Fine. Here is the obligatory Super Bowl food discussion.

I like wings sometimes. I prefer them on the dry and crispy side, mostly because I usually wear my food, and sloppy wings are a mess for normal people, so they are a catastrophe for me! But that doesn't mean I won't eat them. A good spicy Buffalo Chicken Wing is loads of fun.

Anyone making them for the big game tonight?

Speaking of which, I am rooting for the Santa Clara 49ers, because Taylor Swift is irritating and her boyfriend is a kneeling leftist.

Last week I mentioned a delightful use of sourdough starter excess...savory pancakes! And within a few moments we got these two comments, which pretty much prove the existence of HordeMindTM

Flap Meat...whatever the hell that is...just send it, Broccolini that isn't $6/bunch, garlic...lots of garlic! (and basil! My basil did not do well this year!), well-marbled hanger steaks and elk chops to: cbd dot aoshq at gmail dot com.

And don't think that the rest of you are off the hook with maple syrup and French Toast: so why don't you put maple syrup on your steaks and chops and chicken?

But the real culprits are those poor deluded souls who shake their Manhattans. These are are the same people who drink fine bourbon with coke, and probably shake red wine with ice too.

However, I will give dispensation to those who use maple syrup on Brussels Sprouts! I tried that last week and it worked nicely. I still prefer Agave, but still...

And yes, I used to demand fancy bourbon, but let's face it, $1,200 for a bottle of bourbon is just stupid, insulting, and a ghastly affront to most people's palates and wallets. I think the sweet spot is $40-$60 for excellent and interesting bottles, and bumping that to $100 gets you an incremental improvement in quality, but nothing mind-blowing. More than that and I think you are paying for hype and rarity, which may look good in your liquor cabinet, but doesn't translate to more quality in the bottle.

18 I am so tired of "Green" idiots telling us how the planet works.

I live in the middle of a crop and cattle state. To the east of us, the ground is too rocky to farm, but it still has good soil and good rain. Consequently, it is one of the premier grass-fed beef grazing areas in the world.

To the west of us, there is not enough rain for crops, unless you have good irrigation wells for your water. However, hardy grasses still survive in those tough conditions. Cattle at lower densities utilize the productivity of that land.

Neither of those prudent land uses takes one damn acre from growing crops. Ivy League educated city-slickers are morons (with a small "m").

36 The compound butter was four ounces of butter, four teaspoons of lemon juice, about a tablespoon of chopped chipotle peppers, and of course S&P.

Somewhere I have a recipe that involves taking a slice or two of bacon, some Dijon, garlic, herbs and white wine, pureeing it, then smearing it under the breast and leg skin of a spatchcocked Cornish hen. That's a winner on the grill, but works well in the oven, too.

Let that cook low for 6-7 hours. In the last hour, add frozen shrimp and frozen okra. Used Cajun seasoning and pepper. Made red beans and rice separately, seasoned with creole seasoning.

Chili is usually cooked low and slow, precisely what cheaper cuts like chuck are best for, while sirloin is a very lean meat, and does not fare well under those conditions.

Also, ranchers don't just put cattle on pastures and leave them to eat and make calves. A lot of work goes into raising them. One of my cousins had a cow-calf operation for many years. The first heifer he bought to start his herd lived for 25 years. That is very much on the long side.

I certainly liked the result better than my last martini foray with Bombay Sapphire and Noilly-Prat, but it just doesn't do it for me. I'll take a Manhattan, Sazerac, Vieux Carre, or other whiskey-based drink any day. They are much deeper and more complex.

66 I will admit to a Sandra Lee Semi Homemade meal win this week.

I tried the new Satay sauce at Trader Joe's. Knowing I needed a dinner that could "hold" for an hour (one kid eats early, one late), I tossed some chicken thighs with s&p, garlic, ginger, and onion in a crockpot for 4 hours on high and shredded it back in its juices, then kept it warm.

While it was cooking, I took some radishes, sliced uber thin and pickled them with rice wine vinegar, sugar, and salt (1/2 as much salt as sugar - not a lot of either) and tossed them in the fridge.

For dinner, I hard toasted some buns (this is wet, so you want a hard toast), put some chicken, pickled radish and a TB of the satay sauce on top. Lord almighty, was it amazing. My oldest said it might have been better if the chicken had been baked or grilled vs shredded b/c it was wet...but for a dinner anyone can eat at any time all night - a simple (and CHEAP) winner...

67 52 I used to make chili with sirloin steak, and then one day it dawned on me. Chili is usually cooked low and slow, precisely what cheaper cuts like chuck are best for, while sirloin is a very lean meat, and does not fare well under those conditions. It's one of those things where you wonder WTH took you so long to come to the right conclusion.

68 Before the Costco ready-baked, in my physical fitness days, used to buy the two-pack of the frozen Foster Farms chickens and bake from scratch. Slather w butter mixed w garlic salt and rosemary, pour a bunch inside and slow bake for a few hours (? been so long....). Save the cooked juice and boil into a few cups of Basmati rice, add a bunch of cooked edamame w sea salt....Id eat the entire bird, breasts, thighs, wings in one sitting. Was running 8 miles every other day and lifting weights back then and had hyper metabolism, couldn't get away with that today.

106 I too once disliked venison because it was way too gamey. I think you need a good cut of venison properly prepared, then it’s very tasty.

Speaking of gamey, I once had wild-caught Scottish Hare at a very expensive restaurant in Manhattan. It was a substantial add-on price to their already obscene pre fixe price. But I’d never seen it on a menu before (or since), and sometimes you gotta say “what the fuck,” so I made my move.

Holy shit it was the gameyist shit that exists on this planet. I could barely finish it. My date (a pinay used to exotic and somewhat disgusting food) took one small bite and almost spit it out.

I assume given the restaurant to was prepared right. But wow, it tasted almost rotten. And I like rabbit.

114 In 1847, someone brought some sourdough starter along with them on the Oregon Trail.

"That someone was an ancestor of Carl Griffith, who inherited the sourdough starter that his family brought to Oregon via the Oregon Trail in 1847 from their home in Missouri. There's really no telling how long the starter had been passed down prior to this point, but the starter is still alive and well today more than 175 years later.

"To keep the edible legacy of his family alive, Griffith started an online forum in the '90s, like you do, and would send anyone some dehydrated starter if they mailed him a self-addressed, stamped envelope."

We eat a lot of venison, mostly whitetails, sometimes mule deer or elk and occasionally moose. I've found it only to be gamey if it was not treated as food right after the trigger was pulled. Getting it out of the field and carefully processed and I think it's preferable to any other red meat.

It turns a tough cut into . . . Well, easier to chew I suppose. One day I will make chicken fried steak.

I paid maybe 12-16 bucks for four pounds of sirloin at Aldi's last week. Sous vide'd it then broke it down into four one pound containers then into freezer. Mixed up some brown gravy tonight and added a one pound container of beef and let it simmer for a couple of hours. Garlic, but of course.

Two plates spotless. No leftovers.

168 Last evening we had round roast rubbed with spices and cofffee grounds ( sounds weird tastes good) and served with roasted shallots and snap peas. And mashed potatoes It was a three pound roast. We had leftovers tonight and will probably get One or two more meals from it. The roast cost $20.00 so I think we're doing pretty well. If we went out the meal would have cost $20, 00. The local highly popular bar and restaurant is closed and the only time that happens is Christmas and Thanksgiving. I'm glad the workers got off the day. When we go there they are very pleasant and deserve a day off.

Posted by: Biff Pocoroba at February 11, 2024 05:47 PM (Dm8we)

171 I guess I tuned into the same roasted chicken frequency, CBD. Working the seasonings under the skin is in fact the way God intended. I've been preparing my Thanksgiving turkeys this way for a couple decades now (started at age 9, being a precocious child, don't cha know).

Friday night I mixed oregano with rosemary, chopped garlic, juice of half a lemon, and s&p. Olive oil is my usual go-to fat, and I'd think you'd have less of a mess on your hands, quite literally.

Obviously, you want to slowly work your fingers under the skin to separate it from the flesh . Then, spoon your seasoning under the skin. If it's a large bird (>5lb) , I use the back of the tablespoon over the skin to work the mixture over the breast meat. Make sure you spoon over the drums and thighs, too.

I did Friday's bird at 375, for just under an hour (it was over 6 lbs and I didn't want the skin to cook too fast) on a bed of baby carrots. Almost polished half of it off that night. Went back to it yesterday and will turn the rest into gumbo for the week. Anyway, all this to say that in re roasted chicken, olive oil > butter..

Thanks for asking! She's anemic right now, so no energy. (She's had anemia off and on for probably 10 years, so this isn't new.)

So, I saw a recipe for Game-Day Chili yesterday and i thought I would make it, but then

I noticed that it contained sweet potatoes, but then-

I noticed that chipotles en adobo did most of the heavy lifting for the spice and the recipe also called for a couple of shots of tequila just for joie de vivre of it all. So, I decided to give it a whirl. As the tasting in my brain told me all would be well.

Actually, worked out nicely. The sweet potatoes blended well with the chipotles and the adobo. A nice variation. The tequila was more in the aroma than the taste.

If I make it again though, I'll cut down on the sweet potato by half cuz two is too much and add another pound of ground beef. Probably, switch the sweet potatoes to Japanese sweet potatoes.

Eh, that's all.

Also saw a beautiful cut of picana this week that was rubbed with a chocolate/chipotle rub telling me I needed to buy it and cook it on the grill.

So, I did.

I set the WP grill to 500* for a quick 3-4 minute sear on both sides then knocked the temp down to 400* and roasted the pecan for roughly 40 minutes when the bluetooth meat thermometer read 135* out it came for a short rest and it was a perfect,a puurrrrphekt! medium rare.

Juicy and tender as could be. Just larrupin'. We served it with trollies, guac and pickled red onions.
Yum!

If you haven't tried picana before you must do so. Itmay be the best cut on the cow!

It's overpriced but once in a while is fine and your wallet won't complain too much.

For Lent, you can go full vegetarian and drop the beef for a mix of sweet potato and butternut squash - and this is the chili where cinnamon works with a ton of the chili in adobo, cumin, and chili powder...I don't tend to like chili in adobo or cinnamon as much in beef chili, but when you put the 2 with a "sweet" veg-based chili, they really work...

Picanha is delicious. I first had it at the home of my daughter's mother-in-law, who is Brazilian. She cooks it the Brazilian way, rubbed with a rock salt spice blend and cooked over an outdoor wood fire. It was unbelievable.

I can buy the meat at Costco for $6.99/pound, which for boneless beef isn't bad at all.

I had a recipe years ago that called for putting a layer of green onions and unpeeled garlic cloves under a roasting chicken. Then you spread the garlic on rolls like butter. The whole mess was delicious.

The RMBS Dad used to do that with beef. A nice layer of onions under the roast. Delish.

234 Cloves of garlic are wonderful baked or roasted. You squeeze out the clove which is a semi solid and spread it on a nice baguette or cracker.
As a bonus, people will stay away from you!

Sweet potatoes, butternut squash, onions, bell peppers, canned tomatoes, and black beans...it's actually one of the better ways to make a veg chili that isn't just someone's veg soup that they call "chili" - I've had a LOT of those at Church Lenten soup dinners, so I've now got 2 chili-tasting veg chilis (one with pumpkin/sweet potato and one with butternut squash/sweet potato) that folks love.

I think veg chili without fake meat is an art...

"The natives of Java use the fresh hides of cattle as food,—nay even esteem them a dainty beyond any other part of the animal. The first pair of buckskin breeches seen in the South Sea Islands were so little understood, that the natives stuffed them with sea-weed, and had them boiled for dinner."

323 Actually, I'm watching the golf, which is running late. Tight match, entertaining.

The foot washing commercial. Was it pro-gay or did I just read into it?

But crab and lobsters are bottom feeders too. And they are marvelous.

I'm ignoring you, CBD. Outshoot me with your own rifle, then we can talk.

Just Pro liberal and minority. Of course there's no hate directed towards conservatives.

328 I saw Wicked on Broadway after dinner at Le Bernardin. The lobster lasagna was great. Making the Wiz about racism was lame.

329 Jesus also never said sinning is ok.

He loves us. But he will not approve bad behavior. And sinners will be punished. And yes, they will be judged.

334 MiladyJo said she'd make burgers for dinner. I was going to ask when it would be ready, while she was feeding the pets, doing a load of laundry, and washing dishes... then I remembered commandment 11 from last night's ONT.

335 Hope this isn’t too late for you CBD! If you like chocolate chip cookies, try this. Chocolate chunk cookies made with discard. Seriously delicious. The sea salt and browned butter take it over the top.

Big hit with the family at our party tonight.

337 soooo...after every holiday, I cruise the markdown meat coolers for those "Once a Year" roasts/products that they stock up on, but some have not sold. If you like turkey or Ham, post holiday they can be bought for under a Dollar a lb, if you time it right. Hams in particular can be Roasted, served once, some set aside for the obligatory sammaches, the rest frozen and kept for numerous other meals, soups..
I don't care for Domestic turkey(or chicken), to used to and spoiled by gamebirds.

Christmas and New Years is the season for great Beef Roasts, rib roasts are often "Prime" rather than the choice ribeyes they have in the steak section, and after the holiday itself are often marked down to hamburger prices. I will generally get several, roast a small one, but cut the rest into steaks, some bone in, some not. Freeze them for summer grilling..
Easter is perhaps my fave...LAMB. CHEAP. They charge ridiculous prices before the Holy Day, then practically give it away after. This year the local Kroger had set out tooo much lamb for their client base...I got a 8.5lb leg, original priced at $79.99 for $23.00, about $2.70lb. Thawed and Cooked it this week,

338 finding the fresh herbs to make the garliky crust was a three store safari, but worth the effort over dried.
The house smells great while it roasts low and slow...
I expected to have more to save in the freezer for future stews, but...first carving I must have eaten 3lbs or so, then kept coming back at it for sammich after sammich over the next couple of days, some of the rarest bits from close to the bone I quickseared as my fried eggs were finishing up for a breakfast. I now find I was only able to send about 2lbs of the roughest, brownest gristliest bits, as well as the bone to freezer bags for later.
Oh, well Easter will be here soon, I'll get another.
