That is a classic technique right there. The nicest thing is is that the flavors marry, and create "umami". There was a Korean-Chinese place we loved to get lemon chicken from. One day we took home leftovers, reheated&ate next day. It was better, and we never ate it at the restaurant again, ordered other meals - took the lemon chix home for the morrow. Hahaha
I've found when defatting this way, hints of reseasoning are good as some are caught up in the fat and being discarded.

I & my lovely wife live currently in Texas... Both disabled, single income from SSD. I've made it finally to a team where we can talk about this and I can send folks to. Being a small team is advantageous for me right now. Looking forward to sharing and caring.

If God meant for healthy eating to be expensive, he would've made money grow on trees. Hahaha I couldn't help myself. I'm wanting to pick up a project I started before my stroke and four+ years homeless. I'll talk more later, but it's to create a picture cookbook (or series) for foods made from cheap eats, $stores, food stamps, food banks, etc. Old & new school trix, tips, techniques... Esp'ly for those to whom reading is difficult, have no clue in a kitchen, not likely to change economic situation. Elderly, illiterate high school graduates, mental&physically "other-abled", and more.

It was not a goal for profit... Except maybe selling it to corporations, denominations, etc to donate through national, state, local venues for free (Bcuz we're financially " differently-abled ".

Later 'gators!

that is great that you cook for your family. I try and de-fat every thing I can by letting the liquid off the meat get cold so the fat will raise to the top and then you can just remove it and throw all those calories away. emoticon

I do most of the cooking for my family. It's a challenge some times. My daughter is a picky eater. I still remember the day they brought three bags of potato chips home. My response was, "Really, would you bring cocaine to the home of a cocaine addict"? But I am on a budget. And I do hail from the Midwest. In other words I would rather have a dish with five simple items than the stuff some of the Chefs use. I'm looking forward to learning some new dishes.
