Chicken Elbows and Turnips

“Chicken elbows and turnips”, sounds so southern 🙂  There were nice turnips in the market, including golden or yellow turnips.  Looked great to me!

I sauteed some shallots in butter before browning the turnips and adding bay leaf and  chicken broth to simmer for 10 minutes.

Of course I made my chicken wings in the usually way; salt, pepper, garlic powder, flour and baked in butter.

Turnips with Shallots

1 glob of butter

2 shallots, thinly sliced

2 tbsp olive oil

6 turnips (2 golden and 4 regular), peeled and cut into medium dice

Salt and pepper

1 bay leaf

1/4 cup chicken broth


Saute the shallots in the butter until very soft and slightly browned.  Remove from the skillet and set aside.  Wipe out the skillet with a paper towel.

Heat the olive oil in the same skillet, add the turnips, salt and pepper, then saute until the turnips are soft and slightly brown.  Add the bay leaf, sauteed shallots and chicken broth.  Bring to a boil, cover and simmer for 10 minutes.  Sprinkle with parsley.

    Delicious! Do you have a chicken stall in the market that separates all the different parts like they do in Spain?
