Chicken, Apple, Sage Patties – revisited

chicken patties

These patties a delicious.  I made these a few years ago and decided to revisit the recipe.  Last time I suggested a cranberry sauce/chutney to go with it.  This time around, I sear the patties then topped it with store bought “apple, onion, maple, bacon jam” and then baked it in the oven at 350F for about 15-20 mins.  The jam caramelized and created an oogey-gooey sweet and savory sauce. YUM!


Original recipe from Martha Stewart.


Homemade Fig Butter

This is the first post in a series of recipes where I will be using fig butter.  You can buy it, but the jar have a lot of added sugar, so I make it! Just get a mixture of dry (8oz tub) and fresh figs (frozen from Trader Joes, about 6-9 in a bag) and cover it with water, 1/4 cup of honey and 2 slices of orange peel and a cup of cranberry juice.  Cook to death and then blend in a food processor ! Whaalaa ! You have fig IMG_0988 IMG_0989 IMG_0990butter !
