HANDY FOOD TIP – SUBSTITUTE FOR BUTTERMILK IN RECIPES

Did you ever get ready to make a recipe that calls for buttermilk  to find that you don’t have any on hand?   Here is a handy tip on how to make a substitute for buttermilk in a recipe. Many of you probably already know this but each time I post a recipe that calls for buttermilk, I always get asked what can be substituted.

You will be able to “share” these by looking under the photo and clicking on Facebook, E-Mail, Twitter or Pinterest to share with your friends. Click on the picture of the little printer if you want to print the tip or save it

BAKED CHICKEN WITH SWEET POTATOES

Baked Chicken with Sweet Potatoes - TSLCThis Baked Chicken with Sweet Potatoes makes a wonderful main dish that your family and friends will enjoy.  The gravy just adds to this recipe and gives the chicken and potatoes an extra moistness.  This is great with my sour cream  cornbread muffins and a green vegetable such as broccoli.

4 medium sized chicken breasts (could use other chicken parts in this recipe such as thighs or legs)

3 to 4 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut in chunks

1 medium onion, chopped (I use purple onions)

1 cup chicken broth

1/4 cup orange juice

1/4 cup honey

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 tablespoons spicy brown mustard

1 teaspoon thyme

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Place the sweet potatoes and onion in a 2 to 3 quart baking dish with the chicken breasts on top.  Whisk together the chicken broth, orange juice, honey, olive oil and mustard.  Pour over the chicken and sweet potatoes.  Sprinkle on the salt and pepper.  Bake in preheated 400 degree oven covered for 35 minutes, remove cover, baste with gravy mixture and continue baking another 35 minutes or until sweet potatoes are tender and chicken is cooked.  Makes 4 large servings. (If your chicken breasts are very large they could be halved to make 8 servings.)

Note:   I take the broth from the chicken, strain, add 1 teaspoon cornstarch and bring to a boil on top of the stove stirring to keep from burning.  This will thicken in about a minute. Pour into a gravy boat or small pitcher to serve over chicken.
