One Chicken. Two Dinners. Maybe Three.

The weather yesterday was awful! Cold and damp. It rained like crazy in afternoon. Luckily I went to my sister Lenore's house before work to pick up her cookies for the Reunion Tea tomorrow. On the way home I stopped at the store to pick up a couple of things and got a roasting chicken for last night's dinner. I was thinking of doing the Bundt Pan Chicken or Julia Child's recipe. But it was Friday and I was working from home and I was not sure how busy the day would be. I decided to set it and forget it. Yeah, that Slow Cooker Lemon Pepper Chicken is so damn easy. And delicious. I made mashed potatoes because the gravy required them. The photos? Funny but they did not come out good at all. But the ones of Archie, the chicken cat, were purrfect.

Of course, there was leftover chicken. I had planned for that to happen. Today was super busy. I knew I would not want to cook dinner. So we had Caesar Salad with Chicken! For the dressing, I use a variation of the Lidia Bastianich recipe.
Caesar Salad Dressing-
Using an Immersion Blender mix 2 Tbsp Red Wine Vinegar, 2 Tbsp Fresh Lemon Juice and 1/3 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Add one Hard Boiled Egg Yolk, 1 Tbsp Dijon Mustard, 1/2 Tsp. Worcestershire Sauce and Salt and Pepper to taste. Blend until smooth.

And I have enough chicken to put in the freezer for yes a third dinner! And the bones have been frozen for upcoming broth.
