Tuesday night and the world's greatest chicken

Last night we had a decent band rehearsal, much better than the previous week. Afterward, our ABC group met at Jason's house. That's where we go these days. We used to meet at Cavoni's in Hillsdale, until they got a new waitress who was habitually rude to us. Then we switched to The Hunt Club in Hillsdale, but their prices were too high and the food wasn't always worth it. Since Jason LOVES to cook and does an excellent job at it, he offered to host ABC group for us if we just chipped in a few bucks to help offset the cost of things. We've tried this arrangement for a couple months now, and it's worked out really well. His cooking is much better than The Hunt Club. Plus we can be our old rowdy raunchy uncensored selves without having to worry about who might be casting glances of disapproval at us in public.
Last night Jason made some of the most delicious oven-roasted chicken I have ever had in my entire life. It was juicy and tender and extremely flavorful, loaded with garlic and herbs. Truly amazing. If I was a chicken, I would have been honored to sacrifice my life so someone could make me that delicious.
There were also side dishes like rice and cornbread and a Mexican casserole. Yum. I wanted to shove a few fistfuls in my pocket to eat on the way home, but worried that my pocket lint might somehow detract from the flavor.
Morgian knows I love hot spicy things so she brought me a present: A bag of "Flamin' Hot" potato chips. Wasn't that sweet? Thank you, Morgian!! I will blog about their consumption in a couple days!

How many migrant workers go into a Mexican Casserole?

Jason said...

*bows* Thanks for the compliments, Janna.

As for Mo's input... the answer depends on how many beans each has eaten...

the recipe girl...did you get the recipe?

Travis said...

I was sitting here wondering how oveR-roasted chicken could be juicy and flavorful.

Then I realized you had actually typed oveN-roasted.

Janna said...

Morgen: see Jason's answer.

Jason: But what KIND of beans?

Katherine: I don't think he uses recipes. He just sort of puts things together on the spot, using some freakishly excellent culinary talent we all wish we had.

Travis: Ahh. Yes. Important difference.

Mr. Fabulous said...

Rowdy? Raunchy?

You're band people. How bad can you be?

Janna said...

Mr. Fab: Ohhh, you'd be surprised.

Wayne said...

Home cooking is almost always better than dining out!
Jason's great!

Janna said...

Wayne: Jason is indeed great!

Jason said...

"Can you feel the love tonight..."

Wow. I feel like a blog hero or something. :P

Katherine: No recipes. But I can tell ya what I did if you are interested. Email me at u_phonium@yahoo.com if you are interested.

Fab: What did one lesbian vampire say to the other? ...... See you next month.
What is the difference between a truck load of dead babies and a truck load of bowling balls? .... You can't use a pitch fork on bowling balls.
Shall I continue?

Janna said...

Jason: Just IMAGINE how much more I would compliment you if you made that risotto for me sometime in the near future....

Jason said...

Right on. Chicken-mushroom risotto the week after Thanksgiving, then? Or are you one of the ones that doesn't like the fungus? I don't remember...

Janna said...

Jason: Fungus is yummy. Risotto is one of the most amazing creations known to humankind... especially when it has enough cheese to almost make it illegal.
I'm thinking maybe a tablespoon of rice, with about four pounds of cheese melted in.
Sound about right?

katherine. said...

cool...thanks...on my way

Jason said...

It does sound about right. It DOES take about an hour of TLC to make it particularly yummy.

Janna said...

Katherine: You won't regret it!

Jason: Mmmmmmmmm.......
