Ok, first we started out with about three glasses of merlot. Alright, well, I mean not as part of the recipe but you know to bring my stress level down. Cooking is an arch nemesis of mine. When I was married, I was not the cook in the household.
I found the following recipe on Pinterest…
So I started with the chicken, the sauce from scratch, and I made some minute rice on the side to serve it over.
Woo! The house smelled amazing! —– I was really worried that the sauce was not going to thicken up like it was supposed to.
And once it was complete – it was delicious! I think next time I will try a breaded chicken – but I wanted to try a healthier option this go around since I am trying to be good! It was actually very good even when I had to improvise with dark brown sugar instead of light brown sugar and I didn’t have any ginger.
This made two full, heaping, meals for me – one is in a container to go to work with me tomorrow. 🙂 I am pretty proud of myself since I am generally not much of cook at all.
So… that only used 1.5lbs of chicken……….. I have 3.5lbs left to cook tonight before it goes bad. Back to Pinterest. Cheers!
