My friend Elizabeth is a really good cook. So I figure when she says that something would be her death row meal~ the meal she would choose to eat for her last meal if she were on death row~ I figure I'd better try it. I've made this recipe a couple of times now and it's not hard to make but it does have a few steps. I noticed on Emeril's recipe that it said that prep time was 30 minutes. HA! Not hardly!!! It took me half of that time to peel 4 heads of garlic and mince half of it. And my house was smelling SO garlicky while it was cooking... but I'm telling you! This is so good. Beyond good. There are no words.My son's friend was over last night and said he wasn't hungry because he'd already eaten, but he agreed to try a bite. He ended up having 3 helpings! Maybe that's why this recipe makes such a huge batch. This is also one of those recipes that gets better the next day. It's lemony, chickeny, herby, goodness.
This is the chicken when it came out of the oven. I used the chicken and the sauce but pulled out the lemons and a bunch of the garlic cloves.
You mix this with the herb sauce that's simmering and the TWO pounds of pasta and magic happens.

Elizabeth says that this is the one recipe she tries to follow exactly. It was painful for me but I did the same. At least up until the end. I just don't think he has enough parmesan in it. So I doubled the amount of parmesan cheese. If adding more parmesan cheese is wrong I don't wanna be right!
So what's on our agenda for this week? Well.. low carb diet for one! I feel like the world's biggest cheater after this meal. This week hold record setting temperatures for us. 104 today and 110 on Wednesday. So, it'll be a good week to stay in and start packing clothes with the kids. Plus, as I mentioned before... IT'S SHARK WEEK!!! YAY!!!
I'm a wife and mom! That about sums me up! I am blessed to be married to my best friend for 28 years now. I have 2 great kids that are grown! My hobbies include: Cooking, photography, gardening, reading, painting, and pottery, and feathering my nest!
