Wee Bear surprised me with this delicious chicken in wine sauce, on our very first Valentines Day dinner at his home nearly 20 years ago. He decorated with flowers, GIANT balloons and served on his finest china. He served this sumptuous dish with a mix of white and wild rice and grilled crostini. With his sister Kathy, standing by the phone for guidance, he took on this challenge, to impress his honey with his kitchen prowess. It was so cute and I was very impressed, when I arrived at his home, to smell of this amazing chicken baking in the oven. The recipe came from Wee Bear's Mother Pat, who was an accomplished cook and baker.
It tastes so rich and divine that you'd never suspect it's so economical and quick to prepare! The final dish is velvety and fragrant with wine.
This quickly became a family fave and one of my go to dishes. It is elegant enough to serve at a dinner party and everyone we serve it to, loves it!
