December 3, 2013 in Entrees
I love Iron Chef Michael Symon’s “Five in Five” concept – get people in the kitchen cooking and make it ridiculously easy AND flavorful AND with minimally processed foods. Have you seen his new cookbook? It should have been named “Fab Five” because it is truly fabulous.
So, what better time to use five-minute recipes with only five ingredients than in December when time is at a premium? Never fear, food fans! We here at Apron Strings will be featuring Five-Minute Recipes for the entire month of December – with a focus on holiday recipes. Today’s recipe fits Iron Chef Symon’s concept perfectly – flavorful, easy, healthy. And this recipe goes from grocery bag to table in about five minutes.
Rotisserie chicken is one of my favorite grocery store buys. I love them. I buy a couple of them every month for use in entrees, sandwiches, late-night grab-a-bite fridge snacks. I used the thigh meat for this recipe – but use white, too, if you like.
I came up with this simple saute just throwing five of my favorite things in a saute pan. This is a fab food combo – such great flavors! And the canned beets are delicious and so very handy. You can serve this with or without a starch. I added a dash of vinegar at the end, which mingled with the sweet beet juices and added wonderful rich flavor.
