How was your weekend? I hope you had nice weather and got to indulge in some great food and libations. My weekends are full of cooking, photography, videography and family. It just does not seem like there are enough hours in a day. I wish I could just slow down time altogether .
Spring is rolling in here kind of slow this year. We had an unseasonably warm winter and then we got popped with some pretty cool weather here in the last few weeks. It has put the kibosh on the blooms of the Bradford Pear trees, Forsythia bushes and some of the daffodils. The positive side of this is that maybe every ones allergies will not be as bad including my son.
So this past weekend I created a new recipe…..or at least a new recipe by my standards. You are going to love this Easy Creamy Chicken Mushroom Asparagus Skillet. Lightly browned chicken breasts are topped with golden mushrooms, tender-crisp cooked asparagus, sun dried tomatoes and drizzled with a creamy white wine sauce. Oh mercy…I am making myself hungry.
This beautiful recipe can made in less than thirty minutes making it easy enough for a weeknight meal and fancy enough for company. You can serve over a bed of angel hair pasta or white rice. Easy Creamy Chicken Mushroom Asparagus Skillet pairs wonderfully with a dry crisp white wine like a Sauvignon Blanc or a Pinot Grigio.
So if you are having company over this weekend, just want to score brownie points with your significant other, or you just appreciate darn good food than get the ingredients on the grocery list. For goodness sake don’t leave the grocery list on the counter like I have done numerous times.
