Made a great dinner the other night with recipes from my favorite summer cookbook, THE BAREFOOT CONTESSA COOKBOOK. If you don't own it you should buy it as it is filled with fantastic recipes.
This was the first time I tried making this dish and I'm sure I'll be making it more often. It's easy, you marinate it over night, and can be served hot or cold. Here in East Hampton we have IANCONO CHICKEN FARM which has fresh chickens - when I say fresh I mean you see the son cutting off their heads. I love going there as it is something out of a time machine movie - nothing has changed (thankfully) since the 50's.
I served it with her CURRIED COUSCOUS which is also in the same cookbook. It's asparagus season and the farmstands here are brimming with them. I just rinse them, cut off ends, put in a ziplock bag with some olive oil, kosher salt, and fresh pepper then either put them under the broiler for 4 minutes or put them on my grill in a vegetable basket.
This is a quick and delicious dinner than anyone can make - so get in the kitchen and DO IT!
The sound track I listened to while cooking and while eating was an old CD box I bought a few years back: BUDDHA-BAR IV by David Visan. It has one CD for dinner and another for drinks. I sometimes enjoy choosing music that relates to the food I'm making.
