Ingredients
4 chicken thighs
2 chicken breasts with skin and backbone, halved crosswise
2 teaspoons salt, plus more to taste
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, plus more to taste
1/2 cup all purpose flour, for dredging
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 large red bell pepper, chopped
1 onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
3/4 cup dry white wine
1 ( 28-ounce) can diced tomatoes with juice
3/4 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
3 tablespoons drained capers
1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano leaves
1/4 cup coarsely chopped fresh basil leaves

Directions
Sprinkle the chicken pieces with 1 teaspoon of each salt and pepper. Dredge the chicken pieces in the flour to coat lightly.

In a large heavy saute pan, heat the oil over a medium-high flame. Add the chicken pieces to the pan and saute just until brown, about 5 minutes per side. If all the chicken does not fit in the pan, saute it in 2 batches. Transfer the chicken to a plate and set aside. Add the bell pepper, onion and garlic to the same pan and saute over medium heat until the onion is tender, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add the wine and simmer until reduced by half, about 3 minutes. Add the tomatoes with their juice, broth, capers and oregano. Return the chicken pieces to the pan and turn them to coat in the sauce. Bring the sauce to a simmer. Continue simmering over medium-low heat until the chicken is just cooked through, about 30 minutes for the breast pieces, and 20 minutes for the thighs.

Using tongs, transfer the chicken to a platter. If necessary, boil the sauce until it thickens slightly, about 3 minutes. Spoon off any excess fat from atop the sauce. Spoon the sauce over the chicken, then sprinkle with the basil and serve.

Seymour: an introduction

Filed under: General — Artflux at 12:29 pm on Sunday, September 28, 2014


Ethan Hawke’s documentary with Seymour Bernstein screening at Tiff  Toronto.  I attended this screening the day after Ethan Hawke and Seymour Bernstein made an appearance. Its an amazing film that portrays a brilliant musician, artist and teacher directed by a fairly well-known actor who’s changing his creative direction. It’s currently being screened at the New York film Festival, Seymour’s hometown so I recommend you to see it.

I went the night after the screening, so I didn’t get to see the QA withAbel Ferarra and Willim Dufoe. The film covers early gay Italy portraying the Italian gay activist filmmaker Paspolini played by Willim Dufoe.   I hadn’t heard him before, but apparently he had been quite a controversy filmmaker in Italy during his lifetime.  I photographed Abel Ferarra’s daughter playing the violin at my studio back in the day.

Loved this bizarre film.  It’s all about what goes on in my hometown and more. The sequence of  scenes keep rolling.

My downstairs neighbors of some 20 years in Soho. The film was interesting more because I knew Laurie as a friend and neighbor. I have yet to see an episode of Girls yet.

A  jacked Justin Timberlake in Friends with Benefits.  All I can say is wow.
