What's cooking Friday 4/29/16?

Not sure at this point. Today is DD's birthday so we may go out for dinner. Have to wait and see if she wants to go out or if she will request dinner at home (then I will make a market run).

I just took a pork chop out of the freezer - hopefully I'll be able to grill it, but the wind is coming up already so it might be stovetop. Loaded up salad on the side.

TJ's cod baked with a topping of butter and cracker crumbs, a salad for sure, maybe steamed broccoli.

I just got a Fagor pressure cooker, and my first meal will be chicken and chickpea masala, recipe from Seriouseats.

Easy Pressure Cooker Chicken and Chickpea Masala | Serious Eats

The instructions on the web page say to add the chickpeas along with the chicken, but the recipe says to add the chickpeas after the chicken is done. I've got a couple of hours to decide which one I'll go with. I'm leaning toward adding them after the chicken is done, as they are already cooked.

I don't see where it says to add the chick peas with the chicken. Follow the recipe and add the chick peas after cooking. Canned chick peas are already cooked.

DH is out playing golf with friends and will probably go to dinner with them afterward, so I'm on my own tonight. I'm thinking I'll make a big salad with leftover grilled chicken and homemade croutons from bread I made the other day.

I canned some tomatillo salsa last night and had a bit left, so I might snack on some tortilla chips and salsa.

Oops - my bad. Here's the link for the instructions with pictures, where is says to add the chickpeas with the chicken.

I'm thinking the chickpeas might have more flavor if added with the chicken, but might come out a little over cooked.

I'll see how close to the picture it looks when done. I rarely get anything to look as good as the food porn.

Hummm, I think that the chick peas would add more favor if added with the chicken. That's the way I'd do it. So what if they're a little mushy.

The recipe looks delicious. Makes me want to buy a pressure cooker.

I have some chicky thighs marinating in Goya and Sriracha. I was wanting to grill, but with a chilly wind I think I'll have to convection roast them. Roasted asparagus for both of us and Tater Tots for the SC.
