Who knew that Nancy Grace could tear it up in the courtroom and the kitchen?

All of the six episodes, which run in easily-digestible segments of five to eight minutes, will feature Grace’s simple take on comfort food classics like chicken pot pie and baked spaghetti.

Slow-Cooker Chicken Teriyaki

3 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken thighs (approximately 10 thighs)
½ cup of honey
½ cup of soy sauce (Nancy prefers low sodium)
¼ cup of rice wine vinegar
¼ teaspoon of minced garlic (or 1 garlic clove minced)
¼ teaspoon of ground pepper
½ teaspoon of ground ginger
¼ cup of brown sugar
Sesame seeds for garnish (optional)

1. Spray your slow cooker with cooking spray and place the chicken thighs in the bottom.
2. In a small bowl, whisk the soy sauce, honey, rice wine vinegar, garlic, pepper and ginger and pour the mixture evenly over the chicken thighs.
3. Cook the chicken on high for 3-4 hours or low for 4-5 or until it is cooked through and tender.
4. Remove the chicken with a slotted spoon and shred.  Place it in a bowl or back in the slow cooker.
5. Pour the sauce into a medium sauce pan.  In a small bowl, whisk together the water and cornstarch then whisk the corn starch mixture into the sauce on medium high heat. Continue to whisk and let it boil about two minutes, until the sauce starts to thicken.
6. Pour the sauce over the shredded chicken, stirring to coat it well.
7.  Serve on rice (Nancy adds a green vegetable for color and nutrition!)

Chicken Pot Pie Squares

1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
1 large potato, peeled and cubed
1 tablespoon olive oil
½ cup diced onion
1 can cream of chicken soup (Nancy uses low fat/low sodium)
½ cup milk
2 cups cooked, then cubed or shredded chicken (Nancy uses rotisserie chicken as time saver)
2 cups frozen mixed vegetables (peas, carrots, corn) thawed
½ teaspoon thyme or herb of your preference
Salt and pepper, to taste

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2. Unfold the pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface. Cut into three strips along the fold lines. Cut each strip in half crosswise to make 6 rectangles.
3. Place the rectangles on a lightly greased baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes, or until golden brown. Let cool for 10 minutes on wire rack.
4. In a medium saucepan, bring 2-3 cups of water to a boil. Add the cubed potatoes and cook until just tender, about 5 minutes; drain.
5. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add chopped onion and cook until tender, 3-5 minutes.
6. Add soup and milk and mix well.
7. Add cooked chicken, potatoes and vegetables. Stir in thyme, and salt and pepper, to taste.
8. Simmer mixture for about 5 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender.
9. Split each puff pastry rectangle into two layers so there are 12 layers in all. Spoon about 2/3 cup of the chicken mixture onto each bottom layer.
10. Top with the remaining puff pastry and serve.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
