I was using a big cast iron 'Creuset' type casserole so opted for the oven.
I did 1.5 hrs and it needs 2, I think.
I did the whole Guisado thing - threw in carrots and 'toyota'(sp?) - lots of wine
It turned out pretty well....
I need to do the last 1/2 hour ..... it wasn't tough as dv8's sandals but could be more suave.
I think I'll stick to the goat.... more flavor , overall.
Ojama(sp?) and toyota steamed with onions and salt/pepper.... them mashed
It's pretty bland, so I added hot sauce, garlic, etc..
After Hoisin sauce, I thought about 'sweet'n sour'...so added brown sugar (not RD brown sugar)
my afterthought is maple syrup.....
that might get you close a Yam..... a sweeter potato mix.
The Brown Sugar form NoAmerica works but I think Maple Syrup will be more unique
Easy and then the actual cooking is a snap.... oven baked... no splattering of oil
My personal reason for disliking splattering is my glass top stove
the biggest error of my life...
Trumping (no penalty here, not a person) my first marriage
The smooth glass top is IMPOSSIBLE to keep clean and necessitates the scrubbing of the underside of all pans/pots/etc.
because their dirt bakes on to the burner...
Buy new if you get one of these terrible stoves
Anyway, the pre done chicken looks and smells great...
12-14 minutes in the oven if thawed... 14-16 if frozen
I did 8 cutlets....
No taste test yet but as you see from the recipe comments -- 4 stars
Life on the Great Lakes
you need to make your own fun....
For some reason, La Sirena in San Cristobal rarely has chicken cutlets (they call them scallopini), and once in a great while they have turkey cutlets, which are even better. We started buying boneless chicken breasts and using a filet knife to slice thin ( I also brought down a great Pampered Chef meat mallet/tenderizer to pound them thinner and even). I’ll give your recipe a try
I like my vegetables crisp-crunchy --- even when steamed.... not overdone.
I also like sesame flavor... so when I saw this in the NYTimes Cooking Section by Melissa Clark----
I had it last night -- excellent
Broccoli Salad with Garlic and Sesame
1 ½ teaspoons red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon kosher salt, more to taste
2 heads broccoli, 1 pound each, cut into bite-size florets
¾ cup extra virgin olive oil
4 fat garlic cloves, minced
2 teaspoons cumin seeds
2 teaspoons roasted (Asian) sesame oil
Large pinch crushed red pepper flakes.
In a large bowl, stir together the vinegar and salt. Add broccoli and toss to combine.
In a large skillet, heat olive oil until hot, but not smoking. Add garlic and cumin and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in sesame oil and pepper flakes. Pour mixture over broccoli and toss well. Let sit for at least 1 hour at room temperature, and up to 48 (chill it if you want to keep it for more than 2 hours). Adjust seasonings (it may need more salt) and serve.

I've made this over and over. I use 1/4 c olive oil. I have no idea why the recipe calls for 3/4 c, which leaves you with broccoli swimming in oil.

My friends call this recipe "Broccoli Crack". There is never any left over.
I use about 1/3 cup of olive oil and it's plenty.

So I thought many of you were prone to exaggeration as far as this recipe goes. I mean really, "broccoli crack?"
After tasting? Now I call it that... I used 1/2 cup of mixed olive and grape seed after reading notes, but otherwise followed recipe exactly. By the way, I could have used more oil which makes me think that others may not have used 2#'s broccoli AFTER trimming. 2 pounds is A LOT.

Followed Figaro's advice and used grape seed oil but used 1/3 cup and 2 teaspoons of rice wine vinegar. We love garlic and used 6 cloves. Also, a used a full tbs of cumin seeds. First I toasted them lightly then cracked them (few whacks with a pestle). With the cumin, I added whole a half tsp of whole peppercorns, lightly toasted and cracked.
Another idea I want to try is to use the mortar and pestle to grind the red pepper flakes a bit. Makes less of an impact for those not into them.
