My lunch

Since I'm hungry and procrastinating, and I know you're all so interested, today's lunch.

Leftovers of Leftovers.

Shabbos lunch/dinner was chicken marinated in fresh rosemary and lemon juice. We had quite a bit of the juices (lemony and scented with the herb), so I saved those. I also had about half a chicken plus two cups of roasted potatoes, the juices and my chicken stock. So, last night, while I cooked sanj's lentil stew, I made chicken hash.

I diced a spanish onion finely and sauted it with margarine (a deliberate choice) until soft, and added all of the juices, which had gelatinized nicely. Plus, some of the rosemary leaves were still there. While that liquified and cooked down, I chopped up the potatoes and then skinned, boned and chopped up the chicken. I could have done it a bit finer, maybe using my mezzaluna, but I didn't bother. I added them to the pan, along with a cup or so of chicken stock, and some freshly ground pepper. I cooked that until the chicken and potatoes were hot and infused with the juices and stock, and it still wet but not swimming. This would have been served with steamed broccoli except we wanted to watch West Wing, so it ended up being eaten seriatum - a bowl of hash followed by a bowl of broccoli.

There was enough leftover for my lunch, with the addition of leftover spinach kugel.
