K-N memorial Ranch Roasted Chicken

This wonderful dish does take time but little effort. It is plain meal of unexpected goodness. We dedicate this to two ancient Egyptians joined together in love. 

Slow roasting chicken in buttermilk ranch dressing with vegetables may seem different to you. Yet this combination yields a beautiful golden brown feast.

8 pieces chicken thighs and/or legs (bone-in, skin-on)
2 tablespoons olive oil + ½ stick melted butter
1 tsp salt + ½ tsp white pepper
1 tsp garlic powder + 1 tsp onion powder
½ lbs fresh Brussels Sprouts
½ lbs baby carrots
1½ cups buttermilk ranch dressing – must include buttermilk

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees and spray a 10 x 14 pan*.

Melt ½ stick butter in the pan by placing it the oven as it warms.

Add chicken, olive oil, salt, garlic, onion powder and pepper to a large bowl and roll each piece to coat.

Arrange chicken pieces evenly in pan and bake at 325 degrees for 45 minutes.

NOTE: slave found this was too crowded so added a second pan and redistributed.

Meanwhile, rinse the Brussels sprouts and cut them lengthwise in half. Slice the baby carrots so they are about 1 inch long.

At the end of the first 45 minutes: Remove pan(s) from oven. Drain any excessive liquid. (some chicken have lots of saltwater injected)
Arrange the sprouts cut side down and the carrots evenly around chicken pieces. Don't flip the chicken, just let them do their thing.

Return pan(s) to oven and continue cooking for another 30 minutes.

Remove again from the oven. Brush the dressing evenly over
the chicken pieces.

Return to oven and continue cooking for a last 30 minutes.

At that time: Check chicken for temperature. Thighs should be 160 Degrees.

Just so you don't get lost during this, cut & paste this simple chart so you can mark through each step!

325 degrees – Chicken only – bake 45 minutes
325 degrees – Add vegetables – bake 30 minutes
325 degrees – Baste with dressing – bake 30 minutes
    ~1hour and 45 minutes total cook time~

Arrange chicken on a serving platter to serve. Use a strong spatula after the vegetables are done to get all of that golden goodness!

Note if you use boneless-skinless chicken: skip the first 45 minutes of cooking.

Yes this low slow cooking will give you a golden brown succulent meal.

We have always been here!

The rich cultural history of homosexuals goes back to the origins of mankind.

Yet somewhere along the way, (about 1100AD), it became very popular to vilify this minority. Since that time a systemic effort has been made to erase or hide this history. Even the mention of it was cut out of Anglo -European teachings. A redacted version was spread by the Roman Catholic Church around the world.

Now with the advent of the internet, LGBT and questioning youth do not have to go through the intense loneliness that slave when through growing up in the Fifties. More gay history is discovered everyday. It is incumbent on us to share and teach this, to preserve it. The future is never guaranteed. Who knows when another purge will happen.

Although rock art in Sicily from the 97th century BC depicts phallic male figures of male homosexuals enjoying intercourse: Khnumhotep (pronunciation: xaˈnaːmaw-ˈħatpew) and Niankhkhnum (pronunciation: nij-daˌnax-xaˈnaːmaw) are officially considered as the first male couple in history.

They were ancient Egyptian royal servants. They shared the title of Overseer of the Manicurists in the Palace of King Nyuserre Ini, during the 25th century BC. The two were buried together at Saqqara.

Their joint tomb was discovered by archaeologists in 1964 and initially presented a puzzle to scholars. Were the men - depicted nose to nose in a close embrace - relatives or “close friends”?

We don't know much about these figures, yet we can piece together things! Yep they were gay. Immediately we are contradicted by various “experts”. Separating their “knowledge” from their personal or religious viewpoints is difficult. So the site has become known as the Tomb of the Brothers.

In some hieroglyphs, Niankhkhnum and Khnumhotep's names are strung together in a word play that means "joined in life and joined in death."

In the ancient Egyptian myths there is a story of a homosexual liaison between the gods Horus and Seth, producing a male pregnancy that shocked the other gods.

Not many people of that era got tombs built in their honor as they were very expensive, so these guys must have be very popular.

Today most researchers use the term “same-sex desire” rather than homosexual or gay.

There is so much we never learn in school. Remember the rich history of homosexuality that has systematically hidden for so long. In a few weeks the season of “Pride” will be here. Can we take a few minutes to learn where we came from?
