With Oakley going to his dad’s tonight and Harlow having a sleep I thought it would be nice to try a new recipe for a romantic meal with my man.
I really fancied Chicken,bacon In a creamy mushroom sauce, I’ve tried cooking this before and it didn’t go to plan but I found a lovely simple recipe and gave it a go.
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 20 minutes
2 free-range chicken breasts
15g (½oz) butter
250g (9oz) mushrooms, sliced
2 garlic cloves, crushed
100ml (4fl oz) white wine
100ml (4fl oz) double cream
2tbsp chopped parsley leaves
steamed new potatoes and kale, to serve
1 Heat the oven to 180 C, 160 C, 350 F, gas 4. Heat the oil in a frying pan, season the chicken and fry for 2 minutes on either side. Place on a baking sheet in the oven for 20 minutes, or until cooked through.
2 Melt the butter in the frying pan, turn up the heat and add mushrooms and seasoning. Fry until browned slightly, then add the garlic and wine and bubble until the alcohol smell has burnt off. Reduce the heat and stir in the cream, simmering until the sauce has thickened slightly.
3 Stir the parsley through the sauce and serve poured over the cooked, sliced chicken breasts, with the new potatoes and green beans on the side.
Have a fab evening all 😘
