INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – What does food have to do with retirement planning? Surprisingly there are several similarities between having a good meal and a solid financial plan.
Joe Clark has made it his mission to teach people how cooking a good meal can bring them financial freedom. He stopped by 24-Hour News 8 to cook up a recipe and explain.
Joe Clark, CFP’s – Chicken Marsala recipe
4 chicken breasts – boneless and skinless
1/3 cup flour
½ teaspoon Kosher salt
½ teaspoon oregano
4 tablespoons olive oil
4 tablespoons butter
1 clove garlic
1 cup mushrooms (fresh, sliced, variety)
½ cup Marsala wine
Pepper to taste
Old Bay Garlic and Herb
Whipping cream – few tablespoons
Pound chicken (under wax paper) to an even thickness
Season the chicken directly on at least one side both preferably
Put the same seasonings in the flour and mix thoroughly
Dredge the chicken in the flour and make sure it is not too heavily coated – no clumps
Put oil and butter in frying pan and get it nice and hot
Place chicken in pan and reduce heat to medium – two minutes each side
Place on warming rack (I usually put in oven at 225 for 10-15 minutes as chicken may be pink in the middle to finish and I want a crisp taste)
Use the same pan – chicken juice and all – add the mushrooms, a little whipping cream and the Marsala.
Simmer until sauce is desired consistency (usually reduced in half)
Garnish with Italian parsley after putting on plate
Joe said he tends to make a polenta (cheesy) or a Fettuccine Alfredo to put near or under the meat. Mashed potatoes work well also.
