Celery is braised in a mild chicken broth. A simple but flavorful side dish I often serve with spicier grilled or roasted meats.
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 1 bunch celery, cleaned and cut into 4 inch pieces
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
- 1 cube chicken bouillon
- 1 cup boiling water
- 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
Arrange the celery in a single layer on the bottom of a large skillet. Season with salt and pepper. Dot with butter. Dissolve the bouillon cube in boiling water, and pour over the celery.
Cover pan, and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low, and simmer for 30 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley before serving.
