Stuffed Chicken and Wine Pairings
Experimental? Well, I hadn't made it before, and it was not made from a recipe per sey.
I had 2 chicken breasts thawing, when I also took out a bag of ham to thaw (intending the ham to be for lunch sandwiches....from my Honey Baked Christmas Ham). Nosing around in the fridge and noticed I had some swiss cheese. So.....placed sliced ham, cheese and spicy brown mustard between the 2 chicken breasts. Couldn't find appropriate string to tie, and all my toothpicks were plastic. Hum......how to keep together to cook it as stuffed chicken? More nosing around in the fridge and came up with a pastry shell. Pillsbury intended for baked brie. Sooooooo, wrapped the pastry the chicken and sealed it. Was gorgeous. Cooked covered wtih foil and meat probe. Chicken tasted wonderful, and the pastry got nicely golden brown. It was a big hit! Should have taken a picture before we sliced and placed on our plates.
Soooo my wip continues with wine pairings, though the stuffed chicken is now a FO, lol.
AND work continues on Sea and Sand. *posting a bit early, will hop over for linky's tomorrow
Looking for more yarn news? (check out my pay it forward post on a new blog), cause as some point.....that will be a work in progress.
