Unfortunately, we recently had
to move. Actually, it wasn't such a bad thing.
We moved from the Western side of Pennsylvania
-- home to in-bred morons (it's too close to
West Virginia for comfort) and the single most
obese populus of any Top 20 city.
Our new home is just outside Philadelphia,
so we get to experience all the hostile folks
who're too tired to frighten people up in NYC!
Frankly, that's a welcome change as far as I'm
Moving brings out some pretty
innovative culinary attempts, and the following
is no exception. I love pork and beans, or "hot
dog casserole" (slice dogs and fry them
with some onions, add some beans, mustard, ketchup,
and brown sugar, and bake). Because of what
was in the fridge and how tired we were, the
following Hobo Chicken recipe evolved.
1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp garlic salt
1 tsp. chili powder
1 can baked beans
6 slices bread
1/2 stick margarine
Cube chicken and sprinkle with
salt and chili pepper. Heat pan and add oil.
Add spiced chicken to hot pan. Brown chicken
and drain excess fat. Add can of beans and quartered
tomato. Simmer uncovered for 2 minutes. Cover
and simmer for 3 minutes.
Remove pan from heat. Butter bread
and serve Hobo Chicken in bowls with buttered
bread on the side. Makes 6 servings.
