Pick up some boneless chicken breasts from new Saturday pastured poultry vendor Donald Keller of Bayou Farms this weekend for this Chicken & Shrimp Clemenceau. Or pick up a whole bird to roast. Here are some great cooking tips for pastured poultry, shared by one of our great chicken farmers. He recommends cooking it at a lower temperature for a shorter period of time than conventional or free-range chicken: 300 degrees for 1 1/2-2 hours, or to 150-160 degrees internal temperature for whole birds.
Fry potatoes in oil until browned (or blanch potatoes, drain, and then brown in butter). Transfer potatoes to a dish and set aside.
Melt one stick of butter in a large skillet. Add chicken strips and brown lightly. Transfer chicken to a dish and set aside.
Melt remaining half-stick of butter (if needed) in the same pan. Add mushrooms and sauté until they release their juices. Add shrimp and sauté for 2 to 3 minutes or until pink. Reduce heat, add garlic, and cook for 2 to 3 minutes.
Return chicken to pan, then add potatoes and peas; heat thoroughly. Sprinkle with parsley, paprika, salt, and pepper.
