Pyrex - Lazy Girl's Chicken

For whatever reason, I was a bit slow going today.  I cook everyday, and some days it feels like a real chore. Today, the thought of anything that required too much prep and cleanup was making me roll my eyes.  So I decided to do one of the easiest things I make that comes out great and we both really enjoy.  While I was in the middle of making this, I had a Pyrex moment and grabbed my camera.  I'm not one to look up and follow recipes, too much work.  So I'll even tell you how I make it because it is way too simple!

I cooked a lasagna pan full of frozen chicken wings on 375 for 1 hour.  While that was cooking I poured about 1.5 cups of heavy cream into a small pot and thoroughly mixed in a spoonful of ready to use curry paste.  I heated that on low while the chicken cooked.

After one hour of baking, I transferred the chicken from the lasagna pan into a 2 quart (024) Pyrex dish.

I poured the cream sauce over the chicken...

...covered the chicken and put it back in the oven at 275 degrees.

I let it bake 1 hour and stirred it to make sure the chicken was all coated.



Put it back in the oven. Turned it down to 250 degrees and got ready to go thrifting. Left it in the oven for 2 hours while I was out shopping. Here it is after 2 hours in the oven.

 
Came home and removed all the bones with a couple forks and garnished with chopped green onions.

 
So this took 4 hours.  But the chicken is actually cooked after the first hour.  These long slow additional hours ensure the chicken will come off the bones. We had this chicken over steamed broccoli.


Another variation is to use Hawaiian barbeque sauce!!  I don't know the brand, we buy it at the Asian market--oh my gosh it's so good!

Forecast is calling for snow--not good.  Possible icy roads and snow isn't conducive to thrifting, especially when you have the type vehicle that doesn't take kindly to those conditions.  Hubby called late afternoon and said "be ready".  He said we might not be able to thrift for a couple days or so depending what happens with the weather.  So we did.  Fast and furious.  If I can't got out tomorrow, I have plenty of Pyrex finds to clean to keep me busy.  Oh I can't wait for Monday's Pyrex Collective III post!!!
