Ok, so I know we’ve been in September for a little more than a week now but how is that possible?!?! It feels like my birthday weekend was just last weekend – not three weeks ago! And it’s still so hot…it should still be August. However, I am glad that the holiday season is coming closer because I love, love, love cooking and baking for the holidays!!! Love it! J does not share in my excitement over various confections, but that’s ok, more for my friends and co-workers!! He does, however, love my everyday cooking and for that I am especially thankful.
I made this chicken dish for the first time a couple of months back, but of course didn’t get a picture of it. I finally got around to making it again, and it was too good for me to not share with you all, so I made sure I got a picture this time!!
I will have to say this is the one and only dish I have ever used pimentos in, and I really like them in the sauce! The chicken gets nice and crisp on the outside but stays moist inside, and the sauce is creamy, but light. Not a heavy sauce at all. And of course the basil adds a refreshing flavor to it all.
I’ve been busy, busy working on menu plans and baking plans so keep an eye out for some delicious treats starting in a couple of weeks!! In the mean time, get your hiney in the kitchen and make this chicken!!
