From Denny:   Are the kids going off to college this fall and you now find yourself an empty nester?  Are you newly married and wondering how to scale down the usual recipe that is calibrated for 4 - 6 servings? Live alone but want to invite a friend over for dinner without breaking the bank?  Well, Louisiana Chef Jeremy Langlois scaled down this favorite recipe of Chicken Marsala that anyone can make into just two servings.  How's that for economy! 

Start by dredging some boneless chicken breast halves in Italian bread crumbs.  Then saute the chicken in oilve oil.  Like Chef Langlois instructs at his cooking demonstrations, "Cooking is all about managing heat.  You don't want to put your chicken into a cold pan.  To test the heat, first put a small amount of break crumbs into the oil to see if it sizzles."

After the chicken is cooked, place it on a separate plate.  Then it's time to start making the light sauce with olive oil, chopped onions, sliced shittake mushrooms and a bit of garlic.  Remember that mushrooms like to absorb the oil, so you might need to add a little more olive oil while you are cooking.  Add a bit of flour to thicken the sauce and then to finish the sauce add the marsala wine and beef broth.

When serving be sure to be generous with the sauce!  This dish can be served with a good salad, asparagus or boiled pasta on the side if you like.

Comfort Food From Louisiana: Cajun Red Beans and Rice: From Denny: Red Bean and Rice is a traditional recipe in Louisiana that was the original Wash Day food every Monday, in every household in New Orleans, rich or poor. These beans could simmer on the stove for hours, leaving time for household chores.

Living in Louisiana, sometimes I forget some people don't know how to make this simple delicious dish. It's seems when I am researching up pops something else that I just know you will want to see.

I've been thinking lately of how to get more beans into our diet by adding to traditional recipes and found some awesome recipes from the various bean grower sites that I will be featuring soon on all my food blogs. If you are not yet sold on beans as a healthy and inexpensive food, this dish would be a great introduction.
