First off, I must say that it is SNOWING IN DALLAS! Yes SNOW in Texas. When I walked outside in the wee hours in the morning to go to bootcamp, I was greeted with a blanket of white snow/ snow pellets on my car:
Ok, so it’s not a lot of snow, but enough that I had to use my handy dandy snow/ice scraper. That was the best $2 ever spent! And around the area of Dallas, there’s enough freezing rain/ snow that there are road closures, school delays, and airport delays/ cancellations. Texas just doesn’t know what to do! But back to your regularly scheduled program for the day…
So I made this awesome chicken this weekend. It is a healthy dish that is full of flavor, and comes together super quick! Behold:
Sauteed Chicken in a Roasted Red Pepper & Wine Sauce
Confession: I came up with this recipe because I wanted to cook with wine. I wanted to cook with wine, so I could drink the wine. Yes, that is the only way that I will open a bottle by myself; so I don’t drink the whole thing.
Glad to have that out in the open.
But this really couldn’t be any easier. And you can get your frustrations out by pounding the chicken. It really helps with any built up aggression you might have.
This chicken couldn’t be any easier. Pound out some chicken, throw it in the pan, and wait about 15 minutes until it’s done and you have dinner on the table. And don’t forget about a glass of wine! Pinot grigio was my choice. Bon appetit!
