Thank you Google, really. This last minute lemon chicken was born from the fast skimming of Ina's, Michaels & one other site's Lemon Chicken recipes. A tad too much evoo but who's measuring ? I'll call it the Lemon Sisters! ; )

I've not posted in some time but I never stop cooking! To be honest the disconnect between my (newer) computer & blogger made it such a hassle. But now I have the blogger app! Lets see if it helps as much as I hope & suspect. : D

Sufferin' Succotash! (No, Not really...!) Carb Conscious Succotash & the revival of the Summertime Chicken Patty. A la Sylvia's Soulful!
With all the comfort foods of winter being both out of season and overplayed at our house, a request recently came in:
"Can we have Chicken Patties?"
And in our house that means, specifically, Ground Chicken Patties, "blackened" or pan fried with a generous dose of Sylvia's Soulful Seasoned Salt! But it took some time to track some down, after discovering that both my Pantry Shelf, Spice Cabinet and then even my local Grocer Shelves were devoid of the magic powder!
We usually serve this on top of crisp cool lettuce-- a perfect foil for the salt and touch of spice- though not quite heat, that the intense seasoning salt provides, and along side corn or summer squash.
However, I had a hankering for something else out of my more "distant past" (as ancient astronaut THEORISTS might believe!) ; P
Now, we are carb conscious. We eat corn off the cob as a side these days much less frequently. And one child won't eat lima beans or butter beans, the other CAN'T.
So what to make? My own version of Succotash:
Cauliflower Florets, Summer Squash, Diced Celery, a bit of Sweet Onion, dash of Dill, and just enough sweet crunchy Yellow Corn so as to be satisfying. A dash of Grapeseed oil. For body and brain.
Cold Fresh Washed Romaine, cut with a plastic knife, of course.
With all the individual needs and wants at our house, this meal is a hit all the ways I plate it!
I think next time, I'll par cook the veg elements separately to preserve color, integrity, and individual personality.
If you are inclined, a spoon of buttermilk dressing... a dash of Crystal Hot Sauce, would be most welcome on the plate, and add another layer of heat to cool contrast....
