Tonight was chicken salsa. Melt lots of butter in a heavy wok. OK, a frying pan will do. We had a mix of cheap chicken drumsticks and thighs. Fry the chicken a bit to get it started but don't try to cook it through. When it's brown on the surface scoop it out and stick it in a bowl. The salsa sauce got a bit improvised. We used a red pepper, two cloves of garlic and an onion, all finely chopped. Add as much cumin as you like. We like lots. Some cayenne pepper was needed as we are out of chillies. Salt and pepper too. Ingredients got fried for a few minutes before pouring in a can of tomatoes. Once it's back to boiling put the chicken back in, turn the heat down, put a lid on and simmer for 20 minutes so the chicken cooks through. And takes up the flavour.
You can eat it just like that, but we like to lift the chicken out once it's had its time and let it cool a bit. We turn up the heat to reduce the sauce until it's really thick and tasty. Pour it over the chicken. There should be enough butter in the sauce that eating it with a spoon is still the only way to finish it. Use a bowl, not a plate!
If you have any fresh coriander chop some leaves over it as you dish up. We're out. It was great without.
I think we're a bit low on carbs as there was no time for added veg. Might have chips later.
