Have you ever had a situation where you had very little protein and you needed to stretch it out so it’d be enough for everyone?
Well that’s what happened yesterday.
I had gotten carried away with work and when I looked up, it was well passed 12:00 in the afternoon and my siblings were talking about how hungry they were. I looked in the fridge and it was all rock hard protein except for a quarter chicken breast, a thigh and a drumstick. With time barely on my side, I decided I’d stretch it, be quick and make it super delicious!
Chicken as stated above, cubed
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 large onion, chopped
1 full medium green bell pepper, chopped
2 teaspoons chicken spice
1 tablespoon flour
2 cups buttermilk or a buttermilk substitute (recipe here)
Salt as desired.
Place a sauce pan on the stove in high heat.
Add 1 tablespoon of butter to the pan and when it starts to sear, toss chicken and salt to taste stirring frequently until it discolors (not brown!). About 3-5 minutes.
Take off heat and place in a separate bowl.
Using the same pan, add a tablespoon of butter and when it melts, toss in onions and green peppers. Stir continuously until onions brown slightly.
Toss in spices, stirring continuously until aromas are released, about 30 seconds to 1 minute.
Add flour and mix quickly and then finally ad chicken and buttermilk and salt to taste simultaneously and mix well, let it simmer stirring often until sauce thickens.
Serve immediately. Preferably with rice.
The chicken was soft and moist while the sauce was thick, creamy and oh so delicious.
