Chicken with Mustard Cream Sauce

Chicken with Mustard Cream Sauce
This delectable, tangy, strange, creamy, and bold pan sauce is one of my favorites, and I’m getting ready to tell you why. Are you ready? Here goes: It’s delectable, tangy, strange, creamy, and bold! That’s why. But really, guys. Make it for someone you love sometime soon. The Cast of Characters: boneless/skinless chicken breasts, garlic, brandy, Dijon mustard, grainy Dijon mustard, heavy cream, and (not pictured because I am chronically airheaded when it comes to taking complete Cast of Character photos) olive oil, butter, chicken broth, salt, and pepper. Cut the chicken breasts in half like this… (Nice hand, Ree. (Not.) So that you wind up with eight smaller, thinner chicken cutlets. Thoroughly salt and pepper both sides of the chicken… Then I need you to use your imagination. The reason I need you to imagine it is that I inexplicably forgot to take photos of the chicken cooking in the skillet. Don’t be like me. Reduce the heat in the skillet a bit, then throw in a bunch of minced garlic.

Here goes. *Ahem.* *Clearing my throat.* *Singing a couple of scales to warm up.* Creamy Chicken and Mushroom Skillet Summer food is fun but toward the end of the summer, I start craving winter food! So the clouds rolled in for a couple days and all my nesting instincts kicked in. I had some nice mushrooms on hand and a little bit of cream in the fridge. (A girl needs some cream now and then). I brought out the big skillet and filled the house with the smell of sautéed chicken, wine and and fresh herbs!

Mexican Shredded Chicken by Kate Heyhoe Yield: About 4 to 5 cups shredded chicken, plus broth Traditional Mexican poached chicken uses water as the sole poaching liquid, but it also uses a whole bird with white and dark meat. The dark meat gives the broth a richer flavor than white meat alone. My Favorite Meatloaf This is a recipe from my cookbook, and I’m sharing it here because I love it. I’m tired of meatloaf getting a bad rap. Tired of it, I tell you!

Chocolate Guinness Cake Chocolate Guinness Cake March 20, 2012 | By Adam Roberts | 13 Comments Here’s how you know I’m the real deal: whereas most food publications will cram an upcoming holiday down your throat in hopes that you’ll link to their page as you plan your holiday meal, I’m not so clever or strategic. I wait until the holiday’s over, when the post will no longer be relevant, and then I blog about it. This means: (1) I’m not very smart; and (2) I’m pretty authentic.

Strawberry Shortcake Cake IMPORTANT: Be sure to use a cake pan that’s at least 2 inches deep! Before baking, the batter should not fill the pan more than halfway. I was bored (read: hungry, ravenous, craving sugar) yesterday and I had a bunch of strawberries in my fridge. I also had a laundry room filled with dirty laundry, a sink full of breakfast dishes, and a major ax to grind. So I decided to bake.

Filipino Adobo Chicken In the Philippines, adobo refers to the process of stewing chicken or pork in vinegar and a soy based sauce with lots of garlic. As this simmers, your kitchen will be filled with an intoxicating sweet and sour aroma that will leave you anxious to eat. My friend Liren of Kitchen Confidante was so gracious to share her family recipe with me, which I slightly modified to reduce the fat. Bangers and Colcannon with Guinness Onion Gravy Over a half a year ago I came across a recipe for Bangers and Colcannon with Guinness Gravy on What Lolita Eats and I immediately thought that it would be a perfect recipe for St Patrick's Day. It was difficult, but I resisted making it right away, bookmarked it and waited impatiently for St Patrick's Day to arrive and it was finally time. This dish consists of pork sausages that are served on colcannon, an Irish form of mashed potatoes with bacon and sauteed cabbage mixed in, and topped with a Guinness gravy.

Crash Hot Potatoes Man, do I love Australia. First, my oldest daughter was conceived there on our honeymoon…and while we’re on the subject, have I ever shared with you that we almost named her “Sydney” as a nod to her point of origin? In the end, I chickened out, though—I thought that might be a little corny, and truth be told, I think she was actually conceived in Brisbane. But I’ll stop there. This is a family-friendly website.
