Chicken with Apple Cream Sauce

Once again, the University of Latverian Victors are denied their rightful path to glory through the March Madness tournament. Just because they're Doombots. Just because your laughable houses of academia cannot cobble together their own squads of competitive automota.

Observe that The Accursed Richards shrinks from the challenge. If one truly possessed the towering intellect he claims -- if one were truly a Fantastic Mister -- he would provide a local university with the means to field a team against the Victors. But, lo, he shrinks from this opportunity. And why? Because even one as dim as Richards is smart enough to see the futility. THE VICTORS WOULD EAT HIS LUNCH. AND THAT OF THE ALLIGATORS OF FLORIDA.

Have your games, fools. Doom's attention is elsewhere. The frost fades from our glorious mountains. The time of the gardening is upon us. Let us once more gouge the earth and rip from it our nourishment. Fetch Doom's sun hat. No, the one with the yellow birds.

Speaking of nourishment, Doom bequeaths this simple concoction unto you.

CHICKEN WITH APPLE CREAM SAUCE

Ration your vittles thusly.

Four boneless chicken breasts or equivalent mix of boneless parts
1 tablespoon cooking oil (olive or vegetable)
1 cup apple juice
1 tablespoon crushed rosemary
1 tablespoon lemon juice
salt and pepper
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
1 tablespoon dries parsley

Doom commands you to:

Brown the chicken on each side for five minutes in medium hot oil. 

Combine apple juice, lemon juice, rosemary, and dashes of salt and pepper (Doom prefers lots of black pepper, but you can always add more later). Pour over chicken. Cover and simmer ten minutes. Remove chicken.

Combine starch and cream in a cup or bowl and pour into juice. Raise temperature slightly to boil for two minutes. Stir continuously. Simmer again for ten minutes to thicken. Stir occasionally.

Add chicken to mixture and simmer until sauce is thickened to your liking. Add parsley to mixture and spoon over chicken.

Rice goes well with the chicken and provides a good medium for the sauce.

Doom commands you to savor.
