1/8 Photos of Glazing Your Chicken With Jam and Balsamic - Longmeadow Farm
Andi of Longmeadow Farm's Note:
After a glumpie Sunday afternoon, where the remaining leaves precariously fell from the dormant trees, a cool mist had settled in the valley below, the world appeared to me; to have hibernated, here on the farm. I pondered what I might do to enhance the palette and stomachs of everyone who graced our table that evening. Normally, we have a casual get together, the "boys" come over, my Dad ambles over from his house, and the cattle were sleeping peacefully, all rejoicing the cool mist after the hot summer we had just completed. I decided to try something a bit different from my usual fare. Quietly tucked away in the back of the cabinet I found some apricot jam, along with the last bit of some balsamic vinegar. You and I both know, there are a sundry of chicken and balsamic ......out there. I said, "What the hay...." added some fresh thyme, let's see what happens? Melted the jam, vinegar, roast the chicken breasts, baste the jam glaze on top of chicken. What could be easier? I guess just roasting the chicken breasts with nothing, would be easier. That night we sat, enjoyed the company, the laughs from the weekend, the new calf stories, and our family. I hope you feel the same, enjoy whomever your company is, or just enjoy the quietness of alone time, where ever you are, have a good night, and replenish your palette and your soul as well.
