Chicken Dinner with Beets and Salad

Photography by Angie Norwood Browne
My Family is in the middle of a remodel, so lots of rotisserie chicken, dishes you can make on one hot plate are best. You buy the chicken, toss a salad and make beets with their greens. Its the perfect easy dinner.


Beets with their greens

1 bunch of beets with greens

1 shallot chopped

olive oil

3 cloves of garlic sliced

1/2 cup chicken broth

Squeeze of lemon

Scrub beets and save greens. Boil the beets until tender, remove skins and slice. Wash, and chop saved greens. Saute shallot in olive oil until soft. Add garlic and saute for about 1 minute longer. Then add beet slices and chicken broth. At the end add the greens on top and let wilt. Add a squeeze of lemon. Salt and pepper to taste.

About anbphoto

I never thought I'd start a blog because I'm not a writer. I am a Southern Catholic girl, a commercial food Photographer and an avid gardener. I have always wanted to journal my garden; growing food (fruit, herbs and vegetables), photographing ingredients from earth to plate and sharing the recipes I love. Someone suggested that I forget about all the writing and simply share my photographs and recipes. Perfect! My blog is an exploration of home gardening and cooking, so here is a little history of me and how "Stray Cats and Blackberries" came about. Born and raised in Alabama, my love for food lies in Southern cuisine. I learned early on that life is a party revolving around friends and family sharing food and wine. Backyard Summer bbqs, black eyed peas and collard greens on New Year's Day or ham and chocolate on Easter are just a few favorite Southern traditions I love sharing. I became fascinated with gardening when my husband and I bought our first house. I am a mother, a wife and someone who appreciates the little treasures and traditions in life. My garden started as an empty parking lot behind a Mom & Pop grocery store that my husband and I bought and renovated into a photography studio. While my husband put on his carpenter pants I put on my gardening gloves. Thirteen dumpsters at three tons each and nearly three years later I had a plantable space to sew seeds. I have been a food photographer and gardener for over 20 years and love the idea of merging my passions by growing food, photographing my harvest and sharing recipes with you. Enjoy
