But today, when I was cooking an Italian dish, I decided I wanted some olive oil, balsamic and bread as an appetizer. A favourite dish — one I usually enjoy with chicken pasta. I always cook the chicken in oil and garlic, sizzling the mashed garlic in some heat before adding the chicken.
This is where inspiration struck.
I decided to drain the heated olive oil along with some lightly fried garlic into a bowl. Adding the balsamic, I had a savoury heated combo that’s nothing short of remarkable. Adding some extra cold oil to the pan gets it ready for chicken.
A real delight.
