Thanks Marc this was great.
Zippy posted this on the Dizzy Pig site and a chicken lemon pasta dinner sounded good tonight. Man cannot live with chicken alone so to satisfy another urge I whipped up a little french onion soup.

most of the raws


had to get the good cheese or I would have been beaten out of south philly :whistle:


first got the soup going by carmelizing 4 large sweet onions then added a beef stock and let it simmer for a couple hours


thats a 5 qt. DO


lookin good


6 b/s chick thighs at 400 indirect while these were cooking I got the zest and juice of 3 lemons with evoo mixture together. sorry Marc I couldn't find the green one like you had. down here they call them limes :laugh:


topped the soup with boars head provolone,, this soup was great


Then tossed the pasta and chicken. Very filling dinner

    But the chicken is healthy Randy and I only used 1 stick of butter for the onions :woohoo:
  • FlaPoolmanFlaPoolman Posts: 11,675
    Your in luck Faith that's exactly what was leftover. Amazing how much the onions cook down. You want to pick it up tomorrow?

    The soup looked amazing, and maybe simple enough for a newbie? Would you mind sharing a bit more of the recipe?

    Pat, looks great, glad to see you have all the ingredients there. By the way, I saw John's Roast Pork on the Travel Channel the other day. I caught it 1/2 way through & I'm not sure if it was a re-run or a new episode, have you seen it? If memory serves, Andrew Zimern was stuffing either a cheesesteak or roast pork sandwich into his neck
    happy in the hut
