David's Food Court--Join Us Tomorrow at 10pm ET!

Posted by David Venable QVC 1372181597.43

Hello, foodies…

David’s Food Court commences tomorrow…and I expect you all to report at 10pm ET! Truth be told, I hope you'll join us at 8pm ET for In the Kitchen with David. Then, at 10pm, our cooking competition begins between two celebrity foodies: Celebrity Makeup Artist Mally Roncal and Joan Rivers’ Right-Hand Man, David Dangle!

What are the competitors cooking? Their all-time favorite recipes. And lucky for us, they shared them in advance. Here you are:

Mally’s Magic Filipino Rice
Mally Roncal

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups cold (day old) rice
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup gluten-free soy sauce
  • 3/4 cup white vinegar
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 bag frozen baby peas
  • Pinch of granulated garlic
  • Canola oil, for frying


Directions:

  1. Break up the rice with your hands (because it's sticky!).
  2. Break the eggs into a small skillet and make a thin omlette. Set aside.
  3. Make an adobo sauce in a large stockpot with the soy sauce, vinegar, garlic cloves, and bay leaves. Add the chicken to the pot and boil until the chicken is cooked through. Turn off the heat.
  4. In a seperate saucepan, boil the peas until just cooked. Set aside.
  5. Heat the oil over medium-high heat in a deep-sided saute pan. Add the chicken to the pot and fry until golden brown.
  6. Add more oil to a large skillet or wok and fry the rice. Add the adobo sauce and sprinkle with granulated garlic.
  7. Shred the chicken and add it to the rice mixture.
  8. Chop up the egg with a spatula and add the pieces to the rice mixture.
  9. Add the peas to the rice mixture; combine the ingredients thoroughly.


Stuffed Chicken Breasts with Green Peppercorn Sauce
David Dangle

Ingredients:

Chicken:

  • 4 whole chicken breasts
  • 4 large eggs, beaten
  • 2 cups unseasoned breadcrumbs
  • 1 qt vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup flat leaf parsley, chopped (garnish)
  • Lemon wedges (garnish)


Béchamel Sauce:

  • 4 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 4 Tbsp unbleached flour
  • 2 cups cold milk
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Fresh grated nutmeg, to taste


Spinach:

  • 1 package frozen spinach leaves, thawed & squeezed dry)
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • Olive oil, for sautéing
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Pinch of nutmeg


Peppercorn Sauce:

  • 2 cups chicken or beef stock, or a combination of both
  • 2 (heaping)Tbsp green peppercorns
  • 1 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 3 Tbsp unsalted butter


Directions:

  1. To prepare the chicken, remove the skin and excess fat from the chicken and cut each breast into two halves. Pound the breasts to approximately 1/2" thickness and soak in the beaten eggs.
  2. To prepare the green peppercorn sauce, melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a medium-size saucepan. Add the peppercorns and mash about half of them with the back of a fork. Add the stock, bring the mixture to a low boil, and reduce by half.
  3. To prepare béchamel, melt the butter in a medium-size saucepan over medium high heat.  Add the flour and whisk constantly for one minute.  Add the milk all at once and whisk to combine.  Continue stirring until the sauce just begins to boil.  Lower the heat and continue cooking until the sauce thickens. Add the salt and pepper and nutmeg.  Remove the mixture from heat and stir in the cheese. Set aside to cool.
  4. To prepare the spinach, sauté the minced garlic in olive oil until aromatic (about 30 seconds). Add the chopped, prepared spinach. Sauté for a few minutes and add the nutmeg, salt, and pepper.  Set aside to cool. Combine half of the cooled béchamel with the spinach.
  5. To stuff the chicken breasts, pour half the breadcrumbs onto a sheet of aluminum foil large enough to hold four breast halves. Place the chicken on top and press to coat the bottom of the breast. Put a tablespoon of béchamel in the center of each breast. Top with a generous tablespoon of the spinach mixture and another tablespoon of béchamel. Lay the other breast half on top and coat with remaining breadcrumbs, pressing the sides to seal.
  6. Heat the oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high (about 375°F) heat. Add the stuffed breasts and fry for 2–3 minutes until golden brown. Flip the chicken and fry on the other side. Move the breasts to a baking sheet lined with paper towels. Keep the chicken warm in the oven while you make the Peppercorn Sauce.
  7. To prepare the Peppercorn Sauce, combine the flour with 1 tablespoon of softened butter. Stir the butter into the pan with the stock and peppercorns and heat until slightly thickened.
  8. Spoon some sauce onto each plate and place a stuffed breast on top. Garnish with chopped parsley and lemon wedges. Serves 4.


I can’t WAIT to taste these recipes. And, luckily, I’ll have a chance to, as will Pat Neely and Lucinda Scala Quinn! We’re all judges on the Food Court panel. You’ve seen Pat (and his wife Gina) on QVC with their cookbooks and kitchen line. And, of course, they host a little show on Food Network called Down Home with the Neely’s! You know Lucinda from QVC, too. She's been on with her spurtles and cookbook Mad Hungry Cravings. Of course, she's also the Executive Director of Food and Entertaining at Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia! WHEW! I'd better be on my best behavior.

We’ll be judging David and Mally’s dishes on taste and overall presentation. The kitchen prep starts at 9pm ET. Then, at 10pm ET, the cooking begins!! You can watch a live webcast right on QVC.com (and you’ll see what Mary, your court reporter, sees). We’ll reveal the winner close to 11pm ET.

I’m so excited for this—our first ever competition. See you tomorrow at 8pm ET!

Keep it flavorful!
—David

I just wanted to say that I hope QVC decides to continue supporting Paula Deen~{#emotions_dlg.thumbup1}

Just what we need. More David Venable. He won't be happy till QVC is all David, all the time. And now he is ripping off Iron Chef and pretending to be the Chairman. As far as I'm concerned he and Paula Dean can crawl back to the deep south where apparently the only good food in the world exists, and live out their days together eating their bacon,cheese and fatty foods.

hi David

as always so looking forward to your show, watch every Wednesday and Sunday. You are my favortie host. I know it is probably in your power to show support to Paula, because certainly keeping her in the QVC family or letting her go is a business decision, but please if there is anything you can do, your foodies would appreciate it. She does not deserve to be treated this way and I hope QVC will show there support. Thank you so much and as always I will be watching.

Please keep Paula Deen in the QVC family.

Enjoying the new show David. You could sell me anything. It is going to be hard to vote, I like Mally and David.

I do hope that QVC does continue to support Paula Deen. The entire issue has been blown way out of proportion. She deserves the support of the network and all foodie fans.

I agree.

We take everything to extremes.

Great show tonight David. You did a great job trying to promote the products the Neely's had to share. It's a shame Gina and David just could not stop talking over you. I had to turn it off. How annoying; happens every time they are on. Good luck with your new endeavor.

Please no cooking competitions--there are way too many of them already! And where is David's support for Paula? Disappointed in him.

Hi David:

Mally's recipe for Chicken Adobo brings back memories, my co-worker shared it with me at work one day who is also Filipino. Yum Yum

P.S. David have a safe vacation and comeback to us real soon

Go Team Mallie!

Great new show! I know it could not have been easy to have ITKWD and the new show on tonight, particularly with Food Network personalities as guests, and not say anything addressing the current situation with Paula Deen. I know that all the hosts have likely been given a hush order from the "higher-ups." Praying everyone's strength, discernment, and GRACE as decisions are being made. #BelieveInRepentanceAndRESTORATION

Re: Paula D.: Always remember, "FOR EVERY ACTION THERE IS A REACTION, WHETHER POSITVE OR NEGATIVE!!!" We should always be mindful of the things that we say and do!!! We should always show and speak LOVE!!! I am of African descent and was very hurt when I heard about her statements....REALLY wanting Black men and women to dress in attire from the SLAVE ERA!!!??? I had to pray really hard to ask GOD to help me to FORGIVE!!!! I'm still working on it!!! REALLY, pick up a stone and hit me in the head....!!!????That's why we have to make sure that we LOVE EVERYONE, NO MATTER THEIR WHAT RACE OR RELGION MAYBE!!! MAY GOD CONTINUE TO BLESS YOU!!!

Cheesy, and not in "the David V's good way"! No "Happy Dance" here. Poorly produced, lighted, planned and directed. Please? QVC and David, you embarrassed yourselves and your standards. Television programming is top heavy on cooking competition. Please, not QVC too? Sad to report, we seldom watch QVC anymore. This Food Court hour is an example why.

Let's cook healthy, please? Promote healthy foods, no GMO, no salt, no corn syrup. Please?

Will prepare both dishes, love chicken love rice.. LOVE PAULA DEEN!!

DAVID - Love you. Love QVC. HATE this Paula Deen nonsense! Tell QVC to KEEP her!!!!! We all make mistakes, especially 30 years ago! If she had cancer you would help her. If she were a drug addict someone would help her! I'm sure there is a perfect person somwhere in this world but I haven't had the joy to meet them. I have no doubt that all the exec's at QVC have done things in their past they are ashamed of or wish they could undo. Move on. Give her a second chance.
