Kitchen Hazards....

Working in the kitchen can be dangerous, just take a look at the photos below!

I was washing dishes the other day and broke a glass and cut myself pretty good.  It hurt this time too!

This was the worst cut.

I nicked my thumb...

and on top of my hand...

My pinky kept bleeding so much!

The color of blood is so pretty though!

The three spots...

Then, I made pancakes or was it before?  I had a cup of tea too and yes, I am not fasting.

Today I was making my sister's recipe of Parisian Chicken.  I was trying to make a dish that I had the other night at Cafe Barbera that I have yet to post about.  It was so nice.  I looked on the net but couldn't find anything then remembered this recipe and made this.  I added potatoes.

It is a whole chicken with some chicken breasts (for Amal) that have been coated with flour and spices and then browned in BUTTER and then put aside and then, how about I post the recipe!!??

As I was adding the broth, I got burned by the steam.  My daughter came in just then and gave me the Flamazine.  This is a wonderful product.

I slathered all the affected areas which is basically the top of my hand.  It hurts and I am here now posting about it and Amal is making the rice for me.

I still have time to make a dessert but what???


1/4 cup flour
1/4 tsp. paprika
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
salt to taste
1 whole chicken or 6 chicken breasts
8 oz. sliced fresh mushrooms
3 Tbsp. butter
1/2 cup water + 1 cup white wine (or 3/4 cup chicken broth)
2 tsp. chicken bullion
2 tsp. parsley
1/4 tsp. Thyme

I don't use wine to cook so I used two Maggie stock cubes in a cup of boiling water.  I did not have parsley as I don't like it and put the Thyme in the stock.

Combine flour, paprika and pepper, garlic powder and salt in a plastic bag.  Add a few chicken pieces at a time and shake until well coated.  Place the chicken in a skillet with the butter to brown.  Remove from the pan and set aside.

Add remaining ingredients to the skillet.  Simmer 3 minutes.  I added the sliced potatoes at this point cut at 1/4" thick and round.  Add the chicken and simmer an additional 20 minutes.

Serve over butter noodles or rice.

I am using rice this time but like it more with noodles.

Please remember that this is a recipe using all American measurements.

Please don't hurt yourself in the kitchen!

Thanks for stopping by and let me know if you made this and liked it!

Well, I have chicken thighs thawing in the fridge, as well as some leftover white wine. Hmmmm.... what to make? LOL!

Ouch! I had several needle injuries and a nasty rotary cutter cut the other day. I have been taking aspirin for my wonky knee, so it's taken longer to quit bleeding. I need to be more careful.

Loved your feature!

Hi Jean! Make this, it is so easy and so very tasty! I'm sure it would be really nice with the wine too! My sister did not use it for my kids sake not to have had any alcohol. Bless my family for indulging me with my dietary needs (no alcohol and no pork) which is our main diet! Haha.. Anyway, question about the feature and thank you for the lovely comment there and here; did you get all the pictures? My spelling is shameful and I am waiting to see if Angela will sort it for me. No one (4 commenters) has mentioned it yet but I am anal when it comes to spelling! It was late and I guess I should have worn my glasses! Anyway, it is a thrill!

You're lucky with that glass cut, Alia. The beginning of August I did the same thing, and needed 7 stitches to close it. Healed nicely, but the nerves are still jangling if I bump it the wrong way.

CFJ: They were painful but much better now all these days later! Thank you!

Jean: How did it turn out for you? Oh, you did send me an em telling me! I'm glad you and the hubster liked it and he wants you to make it again! That is the BEST compliment!

Amu: The color of the blood is so pretty! I'm better now and it will leave a little scar though! We both got hurt around the same time! Me with my hand and you with your foot!

Kathi!!!!: I went and looked at your blog and I'm such a wuss after reading your drama! I hope you are better!
