Sunday 19 April
Poor Holt was not feeling well, so Barbara went on a Kroger mission to get him something easy on the stomach for tonight's dinner. After long rummaging, she managed to find a package of Tyson chicken thighs that were uninjected with fake broth or chemicals.
She chopped up three or four portobello mushrooms and seared and browned them with some garlic and shallot, till they gave up their juices and could be removed and set aside.
In the same pan, she browned the chicken on both sides and then braised on low heat in chicken broth, with a sprinkling of rosemary. When it was done, she added a big glugg of heavy cream to boil and thicken, and tossed the mushrooms back in the pan to rewarm.
Tasty, yet soothing.
