Remember my First Cooking Adventure?

Remember my first cooking adventure a month or so ago?  Yeah, so I tried that recipe again.  This time I used about 1/3 cup more chicken broth.  It looked like I used more onions and I used 2 extra cloves of garlic.  It was so much better.  I guess I need a lot more sauce than the recipe usually calls for.  It was extremely flavorful, I think that there’s way that I could make it even better but basically I’m ecstatic because I did something right.

The chicken breasts I got was kind of too big so I cut them in half.  When it’s thinner it makes it easier to eat and I think it seasons it a little bit better.  Unfortunately mine was a little bit frozen so I had to make sure that it thawed most of the way.

I did do one oppsie it said to brown the chicken but i cooked it almost fully.  But because you have to put it into the chicken broth it didn’t dry out too badly.  I looked at my skillet filled with broth and turned to Samm, “I don’t know if this is going to reduce, I used a third cup more.”  And she told me, “well that’s why there’s so much.”  But it was so much better this time.  I didn’t take pictures, I was far too busy eating.

I'm a picky foodie in training. I can't stop talking about food, so writing about it seems like a normal transition. There are so many foods I don't like, and that's a bit of a problem. I don't really know how to cook but I love to bake. So I'm on a culinary journey and I want to invite everyone to join me.
