Did anyone see The Wayne Brady Show with Wolfgang Puck as one of the guests? It was on Wednesday, 11-26-2003. They said the recipes would be at the website, but the chicken/capon recipe was NOT! It seemed to be pretty simple, but I wanted to try it for Thanksgiving. I tried Puck's website, to no avail. The recipe (from what I remember) was: Oil the capon with olive oil, season with salt and pepper. Stuff it with apples and pears. I think you put a few apples and pears in the roasting pan with the capon. You add some orange juice (????) and some pomegranite juice (I remembered that for sure) and roast/bake in the oven until done. Garnish with pomegranite seeds sprinkled over the capon. Did I miss anything?? Did anyone get the recipe? Please let me know ASAP!!! Thanks!!!
I would appreciate any QUICK Holiday ideas or recipes too! THanks!!!
I DID see the show, but missed the chicken part of Wolfgang's visit. I saw everything else and just went to Wayne Brady's site (www.waynebradyshow.com) looking for the Sweet Potatoes with Honey Butter and they weren't there either. Then I checked FoodTV's site for either the recipe you were looking for or the one I was, and neither were there. Argh!
I went to the wayne brady website also and didn't find any recipe for the chicken/capon but there were other recipes of Wolfgang's in pdf format there. HTH.
Thanks Everybody for your responses!!! It was just my husband and I for Thanksgiving and we were both really tired among other things. So we opted for our ususal standby . . . rotisserie chicken from this fresh market store near us. We cut it in half and then I "doc it up" with lemon/lime juice, Mrs. Dash (Garlic, TableBlend, Spicy, Mesquite), Italian Seasoning. Then my husband and I part ways: he likes BBQ sauce on his and I leave mine as is. Yesterday I also added Lawry's Marinade (Jerk for him, Mesquite for me). It was great as usual. I served it with my Brown/White Rice (prepare long grain brown rice and at the end add instant rice to absorb the excess water so that it has that dry, fluffy texture) and Vegetable Medley (it's red, green and yellow peppers, mushrooms and zuchinni sauteed in olive oil and herbs and probably lemon juice - Greek/Italian style) from the same place we got the chicken from. Also, tomato slices were added to the plate. Now for the experiement . . .
Today I'm going to try the Puck recipe from what I remember and it will also be a quick version using another rotissere chicken. I will come back later today with the results! In the meantime, have any of you tried pomegranite juice? Any recipes using it or the fruit? I bought some to try out in this experiement along with a few pomegranite fruits. Thanks and talk to you later!
Here's what I did (being on this board "forces" me to use measurements!!! )
Cut one rotissere chicken in half. Drizzle juice of half a lemon (or more) over each piece. Season to taste (I used Mrs. Dash Garlic, Spicy and TableBlend, Mesquite-Grilling and a little Lawry's Seasoned Salt). I peeled and cut into bite size pieces: 2 Anjou Pears, 2 Granny Smiths, and 2 McIntosh Apples. Squeezed lemon juice over the apples and pears. I added to the apples/pears 1/2 cup Tropicana Strawberry Orange Juice and 1/4 cup Pomegranate Juice and stirred and coated the mixture. I covered the bottom of a skillet with the apple mixture, placed the chicken halves on top and added another 1/4 cup or so of the Pomegranate Juice and 1 Tablespoon of Cooking Sherry. Then I "drizzled" the leftover apple mixture and juices over the top of the chicken. I cooked it on top of the range at high heat (I have an electric stove) for 15 minutes and then turned it down to a simmer until the apples were cooked, but not too soft or mushy. It was GREAT!!! My husband and I both LOVED it! I saved the pan dripping and I plan to make up some type of soup with it later. Let me know what you all think and if you try it! Also, I'm sure it will work just fine with raw chicken, just cut the apples/pears larger and maybe add the apples/pears later.
The pomegranate juice is great! I've been using it in smoothies and mixing it in with my OJ. Don't forget to let me know what you think!!!
