Chicken with Yukon Golds, And A White Pizza




By Friday, the pain medication was starting to work(a little!) and it was time to bake some chicken and roast some potatoes... Marinated chicken- thighs and bone-in breasts, in a champagne vinegar, olive oil, white pepper, and poultry seasoning for a couple of hours. Baked at 330F for 1-1/2 hrs. the skin was crispy, the chicken was tender and moist! The potatoes were smallish Yukon Golds, perfect for the same temp and time as the chicken. I used olive oil as a coating, then salted and peppered the skin. Came out creamy, with skin just starting to wrinkle! Plenty of left over chicken...
Saturday, I was feeling a little more like something different to eat, and thought the pizza I missed Friday would be tasty tonight! Home made crust, as always- but decided an Alfredo sauce based pizza sounded good! That sauce, along with Parmesan cheese, Mozzarella cheese, chopped onion,pepperoni, and chopped cooked chicken made for a really great taste mix! Ran some up to my son, who was working, and he called to rave about too..
Today's meal is undecided, but my sister-in-law gave us some home grown raspberries, which will be a dessert very soon!

Yummmmmmm. YOU know how to make a pizza! I tried home-making one. I don't think I did very well...now every time I mention pizza my boyfriend says let's just go out and get one!

buffalodick said...

Steph- I've been making my own crusts so long, I don't even have to follow a recipe! Most baking for me is not that easy!

Lea Ann said...

I really like this. Like the "one pan" meal. The marinade sounds really good. I've got some champagne vinegar in the fridge just dying to jump on some chicken. Will try this soon.

buffalodick said...

LeaAnn- I discovered this kind of vinegar years ago and love it! Not as"vinegary" as some, you really can tell what grape was used to make it.

otin said...

I never was a fan of white pizza, I have got to have my sauce! What the hell am I saying, I will eat anything!

buffalodick said...

otin- I mix it up, but today it will be a chicken spaghetti in a red sauce.. Got some fresh basil ready to be picked, which should help it along..

LiLu said...

White pizza is one of my favorites, for serious. This sounds delicious!

doggybloggy said...

I dont care whats on the pizza as long as the pizza is on my plate - but that chicken - oooh yeah looks crispy and perfect!

buffalodick said...

Lilu- I have come to enjoy it more than I used to.. Took a class on pizza making.. woman in class wearing the shortest skirt made white pizza... Subliminal influence is all I can use to explain this!
DogB- Champagne vinegar in the soak tenderizes and flavors beautifully. cooking it longer and lower is becoming my preferred method for oven roasting!

Akelamalu said...

You must be feeling better Buff you're cooking! :)

buffalodick said...

Ake- It is a sign of life in me, that's for sure!

ohn said...

Your comment on my last post cracked me up :)

How are you feeling?

Kate said...

I had a pizza (decidedly UNhomemade) last week that did not have sauce at all, but a garlic oil layer under the cheese. I thought it would be just like cheesy garlic bread or something, but it wasn't and sadly - I ate the whole thing all by myself.

buffalodick said...

ohn- Sometimes love hurts, other times it's great fun to point and laugh.. it helps! I don't know- feel me up for a while and see how it goes! I can't quit kiddin' around! Hope you have fun at all times in your life!

buffalodick said...

Kate- I'm not worried you ate the whole pizza, but no one neat as you should ever be alone, unless you wanted to be....

Pam said...

I am so in the mood for pizza. I have some frozen dough somewhere lurking in my freezer.

Jadey said...

You have made me without a doubt very hungry. And if you don't already know it I have already given myself the title of Pizza Princess so I love the description of your pizza and I am sure it tasted awesome. My 55 is up hope you are having a terrific weekend.

Marjie said...

Raspberry tarts and muffins would be first rate. That is, if you can stop yourself from eating them all before you use them.

I'll probably be suckered into making pizza again soon, but it's a lot of work when you feed the army I have around here!

buffalodick said...

Pam- Welcome! I have never had that leap of faith and used a yeast dough that has been frozen- does that work pretty good?
Jadey- Welcome! We just call mine "A Dad Pizza", which means all from scratch!
Marjie- I knew they were home grown and fresh- I found a dead fly in them!

Chris said...

You are awesome! Guess who happens to have a bag of the mini yukon golds sitting on his counter? I was wondering how I was going to cook them but you gave me an idea!

Donna-FFW said...

Gee, I am AWOL for a few days and I come to see you and you go and have a root canal.. hope you are well on the mend. They are not fun Im sure. I think that is one time pain does not equate with pleasure, well that and childbirth.

As at all times, your food sounds stellar.

Mona said...

all that looks so good! you are a genius!

buffalodick said...

Chris- finished up the chicken in chicken spaghetti concoction that hit the spot- three very different meals from 2 packs of chicken!
Donna- I leave in a 1/2 hour for the actual root canal surgery- Thursday was prep and a temp filling..

Lulda Casadaga said...

Great! It's Monday am and I'm just salivating over here looking at that pizza....damn you BD!! :D

Katherine Aucoin said...

Buff you are one amazing man! I can imagine the pain you've been experiencey and to that you've made pizza and chicken and so on...you rock!

Hope you're all taken care of today and can't wait to see what lies ahead for thraspberries!

buffalodick said...

Lulda- Pizza was a pleasant change!
Katherine- Got got back from dentist- should be numb for quite a while! Maybe soup tonight...

Kris said...

I love making pizza at home! This one looks fab! I'm trying to grow the balls to ask the pizzeria I go to for their dough. I know it's not a big deal, but sometimes I build it up in my mind that it is.

Kris said...

ps thanks for the compliment on my photo!

buffalodick said...

Kris- NYC pizza has a reputation about the water used in the local pizzas- which makes your city pizza kings! I've had plenty of Chicago style, and I like your city's version better! Photo bears a remarkable resemblance to my wife when younger, I bet you're as nice as she is too!

K said...

They both look fabulous.

buffalodick said...

K- Get geeked once in a while! Do you good, sweetheart!

Heff said...

Wondering WHEN the "white pizza" craze will faze out. I like 'em & all, but...

buffalodick said...

Heff- different is good, once in a while! I make one white to every ten red.. and that works for me!

Hit 40 said...

I have not had a root canal I have heard how awful the procedure is to endure. I am flabbergasted that you are on solid food already. I would be living on chocolate milkshakes.

Hoard the good pain pills for other special occasions!!

The Blonde Duck said...

I've never heard of an alfredo sauce based pizza. How neat!

buffalodick said...

Hit40- Pills gone, pain isn't!
BlondeD- Pretty common these days- I think you can get anything on a pizza now!

G-Man said...

I love Yukon Golds, but they are expensive little buggers..

Just telling it like it is said...

I ope your feeling better! That pizza looks marvelous..shut that is what I want for lunch..

Mona said...

Its going to be your birthday in a few minutes from now in India!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!

Casdok said...

Happy birthday!
Hope your tooth is feeling better.
That pizza sounds - delish!

JihadGene said...

You sooo hooked me with the chicken and Yukon Golds! I'm waiting to see the dessert! Or should I go to the desert? Naww, give me dessert!!! I always have trouble with those werds.

Beth said...

How is My Uncle Buff doing? thinking about you...

XOXOX

buffalodick said...

G-man- We don't eat a lot of potatoes, but when we do, it's the good stuff!
Darngirl- It's a pleasant change from the red sauced ones!
Casdok- It is starting to feel a little better, thank-you!
Gene- Dessert on hold, must know how much of my own birthday dinner I must fix for the others coming to feast on my "should be" day off!
Beth- Neat new icon.. always self-promote..it's good for business, sweetheart!

buffalodick said...

Mona- Half a world away..good news is you are first! Bad news is I am getting so old, I fart dust... Hug the dust out of me, please!

otin said...

I thought we were cooking turkey?? LMAO!

buffalodick said...

otin- Soon, but not yet!

Rachel said...

White pizza is my favorite! Just ordered it at Cheesecake Factory the other day :)

Chef E said...

I remember the first time I had BBQ chicken pizza in the mid-west for the first time, it was mind blowing, and now preferred...yours sound like something I have to try!

buffalodick said...

Rachel- I like it too! Not my most favorite, but a wonderful change, a few times a year!
ChefE- Easy-peasey! Just keep the sauce Alfredo-like, and add what makes sense to your taste buds!

Shelly W said...

Oh does this look good! Yum!

buffalodick said...

Shelly- I embellish, tell tall tales, but I never lie..Good stuff!
