So pumped up by Fresh Direct Commercial on Alexandra Napoli’s Spin on 10 Garlic Clove Chicken and mesmerized with the purple potatoes! Asked my youngest son, Rich to buy me purple potatoes and brought me ‘Gabi’, a pale bluish starchy vegetable we added with our ‘ Sinigang Pompano’. Anyway, I found it at the back of my favorite grocery store. I bought 12 pieces and I only cooked 6 pieces so I have some left for my next creation. So let’s see the ingredients below.
Remember the recipe on Flavored Organic Chicken & Sauteed Spinach with Pan-fried left-over rice. You can use that recipe if you want that flavor but if you’re getting lazy, you can sautee 6 pieces of smashed garlic cloves and fry the salt/ pepper seasoned chicken until it gets brown on both sides and add few spoons of chicken broth until the broth dries up & you have a golden chicken.
few pieces of drained boneless chicken breast
6 cloves of garlic (peeled/smashed)
3 cloves of garlic (sliced)
coconut oil for frying
2 shallots (sliced)
6 pieces purple potatoes (washed/brushed)
few slices of lime
half ripe mango (sliced)
bundle of long stemmed spinach
1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
2 small packets of butter or coconut oil
1. Follow the recipe of the previous posting on Flavorful Organic Chicken or just follow the other recipe in my introduction here. Set aside.
2. Boil potatoes with its skin, covered with enough water on low simmer for 20 minutes until tender, drain the water and in the same pot, add 2 very small packets of butter or 2 tablespoons of coconut oil, mash gently and set aside.
3. In a hot wide pan, add a tablespoon or 2 of coconut oil and sautee the sliced garlic and sliced shallots and 1/4 teaspoon of red pepper flakes until caramelized, scoop some and place atop the chicken. Fold the long stemmed spinach to accommodate in the pan, stirring to combine the flavors and if getting dry, add a drizzle of balsamic vinegar and salt and pepper to taste. Sautee the spinach in 2 batches.
4. Plate while still hot, garnish with few slices of mangoes and lime.
As always, I couldn’t sleep until I made this dish and share with all of you. And I found out that Fresh Direct order for 10 Cloves Garlic Chicken is $ 22 dollars and change for 2 servings, not bad really! I am not sure if including tax. Anyway, I’ve researched and prepared the recipe according to my own preferences and it’s fun! My first time to boil Purple potatoes! Try it! And a big shout out to Alexandra Napoli whom I bumped into via Instagram! Thank you to WordPress, FB, tweeter, Instagram and Vistaprint, I received my orders so early than I expected so happy now to clean my mess in the kitchen, sleep and get ready to my 2 12 hours of my weekend work. Wish me good luck guys and gals!
