I think most of the readers here know how much I do like Acme Bake Shop breads! I just think they take great pride in producing an awesome product: Rye, Ciabatta, Baguettes, Sourdough and Potato to name a few. Here is breakfast that we fixed this morning using sourdough and potato bread with bacon and sauteed mushrooms, on the side. Enjoy!
This was a really good dinner. It took about an hour to make. The ingredients were as local as possible. Here is the photo of the dinner and a recipe. Enjoy!
Here is the recipe. Enjoy!
Olive Garden Chicken Marsala Recipe
Recipe Adapted By: Bob Young
4 Chicken Breasts, boneless & skinless
½ c Flour
Sea Salt to taste
Cracked Pepper to taste
3 T fresh Oregano, chopped
4 T Olive Oil
4 T Butter
3 c fresh Button Mushrooms, sliced
1¼ c Marsala wine
1. Pound chicken breasts between sheets of plastic wrap until about ¼” thickness.
2. Combine flour, salt, pepper and oregano in a mixing bowl. Dredge chicken pieces in the flour, shaking off any excess.
3. Heat oil and butter in a skillet over medium heat. Cook chicken breasts on medium heat for about 4 minutes on the first side, until lightly browned. Turn breasts over to cook other side, then add mushrooms to skillet. Cook breasts about 4 more minutes, until both sides are lightly browned. Continue to stir mushrooms. Add Marsala wine around chicken pieces.
4. Cover and simmer for about 15 minutes.
5. Transfer to serving plate. Serve over lightly buttered or olive oil pasta with some diced parsley. This will go well with a Chianti. We had a 2001 Tiziano Chianti Reserva that was ready to be served and went well with the dinner.
Yup, it’s Saturday and time to stop at the market. We needed some fresh vegetables and eggs. And I always stop at Rollingstone Chevre (see the link in the sidebar) and talk to Karen for a moment or two. My other routine is to stop in at Acme Bake Shop booth and get some their fresh baked sourdough. And Soraya said, “Bob. You must try this Potato Bread.” Now, Soraya has never misled us …. never. So I accepted her challenge and bought a loaf, and a loaf of sourdough also. Robin and I don’t normally eat white bread, but the Potato Bread is really good. Here are some photos of the bread this morning after I took it home and sliced it. Enjoy!
I did pick up some fresh vegetables. Turnips, garlic, beets, herbed goat cheese and fresh eggs. So it was not just a “bread run”, although my shopping bag looked that way. A good time at the market. I will hate to see it close later this fall.
