Cooking and Multitasking

I love to cook and try new recipes. The other day I planned to try chicken with feta sauce. I was following the directions and had added the chicken.

I got distracted by the TV show I was watching.

When I looked back at the directions, I read creole poached chicken, which said to start with sauteing onions, carrots, and green peppers, then add the chicken.

“Oh no,” I thought I’d misread the recipe by adding the chicken too soon.

I started a new pan for the saute and planned to add the already cooking chicken to it.

After I’d started the saute, I realized I was reading two separate recipes. I considered saving the saute, but thought, “What the heck,” and made both recipes.

Both turned out to be good choices.
