Faux Le Creuset, Here I Come!


My favorite - slow cooked chicken & veggies with wild rice. Uncle Ben's wild rice.
Here's my new faux Le Creuset dutch oven. It's not enameled. It's just, well, metal. And stinky when I seasoned it. Oh, well. What can you do?
Chop carrots, potatoes and garlic. I like to make carrots pretty. Now. Generally I'm a pretty careless veggie chopper, but not anymore!
Marinade for chicken. Well, let's just say it isn't rocket science. Soy sauce & Italian dressing. Yep, that's it!
And Grey Poupon for a kick. That's all. Bimmer Man likes soy sauce. Kikkoman, I don't think he can live without it! And I can't live without mustard so this makes both of us happy.
Whisk all together and dump the mixture over chicken & veggies in the dutch oven. Put in a preheated 350 degree oven for about an hour. Remember to chop the veggies smaller so everything cooks in the same amount of time too.
And voila! Chicken with veggies & Uncle Ben's Wild Rice.
Marinade
1/2 cup Italian dressing
2 - 3 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons grainy mustard
3 tablespoons olive oil
Salt & Pepper to taste
Mix all together with a whisk, pour over chicken, vegetables, etc... Use for whatever, especially when grilling, baking, slow cooking in a crockpot OR in a faux Le Creuset dutch oven.
Enjoy!
