Week 1, Meal 3: Grilled herb chicken with sauteed spinach over wild rice and chicken sausage stuffing

The last meal of Week 1 was a gentle end to the chicken-and-apple series as it struck the balance between the hard work I put into our first night’s sweet potato/kale/chicken dish versus the relative ease of making night two’s chicken/apple/onion panini.

It was also my first encounter with wild rice which I’ve learned 1) is not rice, but grass; 2) takes about an hour to cook; 3) is nutty, delicious and filling.

Week 1, Meal 1: Grilled herb chicken with quick-braised kale over caramelized apple and sweet potato puree with sweet and sour apple reduction

Behold! Grilled herb chicken with quick-braised kale over caramelized apple and sweet potato puree with sweet and sour apple reduction.

It took me nearly four hours, mostly because I’m in a small kitchen and because I was watching football and talking to my dad during some of the time. One the plus side, Wifey Nadia and I got to spend a lot of time together.

And then she fell asleep, halfway into dinner, just after 10:10 p.m.

I didn’t have the timing down for making dishes, ran into some problems with equipment and ruined more than one component, but I’m okay with that. This is a learning process and Brian chose to start me with the final exam.

Keep reading for the recipe and directions. Remember, this recipe makes two portions. I doubled mine for leftovers. Continue reading Week 1, Meal 1: Grilled herb chicken with quick-braised kale over caramelized apple and sweet potato puree with sweet and sour apple reduction

Week 1: Chicken and apples

Update: Grab some extra chicken stock.

Chef Brian thought he’d kick off the festivities with recipes that celebrate fall flavors.

I’m a fan of Thanksgiving so I was all ears until he informed me that “pumpkin pie” isn’t a flavor.

His first menu features lots of apples paired with rosemary-and-thyme-marinated chicken breast.

It’s not pumpkin pie, but it’ll do:

Meal 1: Grilled herb chicken with quick-braised kale over caramelized apple and sweet potato puree with sweet and sour apple reduction

Meal 2: Grilled herb chicken panini with apple butter, caramelized onions and Gruyere

Meal 3: Grilled herb chicken with sauteed spinach over wild rice and chicken sausage stuffing

Our list is good for two portions of each meal. I doubled mine so I always have leftovers for the next day.

The shopping list is after the jump. Continue reading Week 1: Chicken and apples
