Try out that penut chicken recipe... only beat penut butter with heavy cream and only add a small amount of oil. See how that turns out. Mix in some sugar snap peas and julienned carrots and some diced onion.. toward when the chicken is almost done. Should be pretty good
(dice the chicken... it's near impossible to cook a whole chicken breast in a wok.. too hot)

Actually I have another recipe for a curry stew that I used for chicken breast or chicken tenderloin
4 tbsp oil
4 tbsp curry powder
1 large onion diced
2 large chicken breasts or 1 lb chicken tenderloins cube cut
2 large carrots round cut
3 potatoes cubed cut
1 tsp salt (or salt to your taste)
2 c water (you may need to add water in periodically because it will steam out)
Place oil, curry powder and onion in a medium (1 1/2 qt) pot on medium heat. Stir until curry and oil are blended and onions are semi-clear. Add in chicken, veggies and water and let simmer until all is cooked down. Potatoes will break down and add starch to the stew to thicken... remember to stir it occasionally. You can serve with rice or eat it all by itself, our family eats a lot of rice.

When you are using a wok, add oil first and roll wok to coat. The center has the highest heat, so when you are cooking move your cooked portions toward the sides and place whatever you are adding next in the center and then incorporate the rest in. Happy cooking!

Sweet Ham Salad
Left over baked ham.
One or two red peppers, (depending on amount of ham left).
One or two chopped pickles, (also depending on the amount of ham left).
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Chop up your ham leftovers to a size of a quarter.
In an iron skillet heat the ham up until it starts to sizzle.
Blast it with the Balsamic Vinegar.
*CAUTION Keep your nose away from the hot vinegar fumes! (It stings like hell)
Stir occasionally to ensure evenness of balsamic caramelizing.
If you can't smell vinegar anymore, take out a piece and taste test it.
In a food processor start Chopping (DO NOT puree) up your ham and mayonnaise.
Drop in your red pepper.
Drop in your chopped pickles.
Drizzle in some extra virgin olive oil.
Add dashes of pepper.
Taste test it. Adjust ingredients to taste.
Serve over black or dark rye with lettuce and a tall frosty beverage.

New England Clambake!
3 dozen steamer clams (more if you’d like)
3 dozen fresh mussels
6 live lobsters
18 small red or white potatoes
6 ears of corn (in the husk)
6 medium onions
3 lemons (cut into wedges)
One or two sticks (quarter pound) of melted butter
If you live near the beach some seaweed or rockweed
12 pieces of 18” x 36” cheesecloth
12 pieces of heavy duty aluminum foil
6 metal nutcrackers and small fish forks
Wash the clams, mussels and potatoes thoroughly. Peel the onions (not the potatoes) and remove the silk from the top of the ears of corn. Don’t remove the husks or the corn will get dried out when it cooks.
Lay out two pieces of foil with two pieces of the cheesecloth on top. Wrap this around 1 lobster, 3 potatoes, 6 clams, 6 mussels, 1 ear of corn, 1 onion and some seaweed or rockweed — if you were able to find it — add a cup of water to the package. Make sure to tie the cloth over the food and seal the foil well. This can be done without the cheesecloth if you can’t find any, but the food tends to get dark in spots and the lobster is dryer without the cloth to hold the moisture.
Make six of these packages and place them on a barbecue grill about 4 inches from the heat. Cover the grill with the hood or with large pieces of foil tucked in around the edges of the grill.
Let the packages steam for 1 hour flipping them every 15 minutes. If the potatoes are done, it’s a good indication that the lobster and the rest of the package is ready for your feast.
Open the packages and serve them with the lemon wedges and melted butter... you’ll need the nut crackers and fish forks to get the lobsters out of the shell...

After a lobster feast, save the bodies and shells for lobster bisque. Pick out body meat and set aside. Be sure to discard small sac behind head of lobster. Use only shells and membranes from the body.
Combine in a large kettle: 1-2 bay leaves Water to cover 1 tsp. dill seed
Simmer for about 1 hour to extract all the flavor from the shells. Pour all through a fine strainer. Discard the shells. Reserve the lobster stock. Cook together until onion is yellow: 1 tsp. chopped onion 1 sprig parsley
Add, cook and stir 5 minutes lobster meat, the more the better! Stir in 2 tablespoons flour and 1/4 teaspoon mustard. Add and simmer 20 minutes 2 cups lobster stock. Discard parsley, add and heat to boiling 2 cups light cream or milk and salt and pepper.

I'm still trying to figure out what pluck (liver heart and lights) are and what the wind pipe has to do with any of it.

How about beef brisket then?
Beef Brisket Rub enough for a 5-6 pound brisket
1 Tbsp Kosher Salt
2 Tsp Black Pepper
1.5 Tsp Brown Sugar
1.5 Tsp Garlic Salt
1.5 Tsp Onion Powder
1 Tsp Cumin
1 Tsp Oregano
3 Tbsp Chili Powder (optional)
1 Tsp Cayenne (optional)
1 Cup Distilled White Vinegar
1 Cup Beer (light beer)
1 Tbsp Garlic Salt
1 Tbsp Brown Sugar
1 Tsp Black Pepper
1 Tsp Red Pepper Flakes
Sprinkle with the rub, and into the smoker at 225 for several hours. Every hour or so while replenshing the soaked hickory chips mop the sauce onto the meat. Once the internal temperature reaches 165 take the brisket out and wrap it in aluminum foil, then back into the smoker for another 2-3 hours until internal temp reaches 190. Your total cook time will vary, but plan for at least 6 hours. If you like a BBQ Sauce, the juices that accumulate inside the foil mixed with any storebought BBQ sauce is phenominal.
