Summer is slowly fading away, the evenings are getting brisk, and that always makes me think of apples and pumpkins and butternut squash…mmmmmm. Autumn comfort food, it’s the best. This snazzy little recipe is another one adapted from Mark Bittman’s newest book, KITCHEN EXPRESS. Which I am developing a love-hate relationship with, because as I mentioned in an earlier post, it is not a collection of recipes, but more a description of quick dishes that can be assembled in 20 minutes or less. Sometimes he gives instructions on the ingredient proportions. Sometimes not.
To which I say: AAARRRGGGHHH!
Okay, I feel better now. I forgive you, Mark, because the ideas for these quick meals are so wonderful and creative. So as a service to all humankind, I am trying out my favorites and creating the Actual Recipes that go with them. This one is a sauteed chicken with an apple and sage sauce created from chicken broth, butter and a little brown sugar, served on a bed of buttered noodles. Truly ready in less than 20 minutes, and delish.
