Pan-Roasted Chicken/Didn't Read Whole Recipe

Made a CI pan-roasted chicken with shallots, wine, and thyme last night...my first time pan-roasting a cut-up bird. As I've done a number of times lately, got excited about recipe and failed to read it all the way through. While pan sauce was good, it didn't taste as rich as I hoped. I realized while cleaning up dishes that I forgot to stir in the 3 TBS of butter needed after taking sauce off the fire! Still pretty tasty, better for the waistline o:) I love to read in general...I just to read the recipe!!

I seem to remember forgetting an ingredient in something a few months ago. Now I read and re-read several times to make sure I've not fogotten anything. And if I recall, it was also butter at the end.

When I am making something new, particularly with a lot of steps and ingredients, I like to remeasure everything. I also group things that go in at the same time. It helps in not forgetting something, unless of course I grouped it and set it on top of the fridge.

Exactly, Frank!
Or you mise en place too early and set some of the ingredients back in the fridge.

Back in Fridge

That's exactly what happened...Recipe said to cut 3 TBS butter in three pieces and keep cold. Out of sight, out of mind.

I made a zucchini bread last year and what did I almost forget to put in? The zucchini. If it wasn't so dry without it I would have definitely forgotten it.

When you stop and think about it, forgetting an ingredient is usually no big deal really, UNLESS it's baked goods!! THEN it's a really big deal.

I once had a friend who was a programmer tell me, "It is not a bug. There are never bugs in my program. It's an undocumented feature."

As a cook, I don't make mistakes. No, no. I simply have my own take on the recipe. In this case, I'd obviously be trying to lighten it for health reasons. (It's my story and I'm sticking by it.)
