Blame It On The Weather

When the weather turns coo, we’re looking for warm, comforting food and for me, it’s anything I can tuck in a slow cooker on a Sunday morning when I’m just doing stuff around the house. This past weekend, with plenty of chicken cutlets, oranges and lemons and onions, it was game on for a simple one that of course I had to tweak.

This original recipe below called for a few ingredients that I just didn’t have in the pantry, but no big deal. Left out the oregano and cumin and added a little more OJ. It turned out beautifully and since I used cutlets instead of whole breasts, didn’t take long to cook at all.

Add to the an easy roasted sweet potatoes and I have extra meals all ready to go. I’m ready to hit the fresh market again this weekend see what I can create next. What’s on your menu? Let me know and send to those pics to me at Life is so much better when it comes from Ann Kelly’s Kitchen!

At home, my food is just sort of comfort food. It’s not super fancy, but it’s certainly tasty - Anne Burrell
