Life at Chez V - Quick and Delicious - Sauted Chicken


Sauted Chicken with Balsamic Citrus Sauce

This week has sort of been a whirlwind, both literally and figuratively.  For weeks like this I love having a stash of quick and easy recipes on hand to make weeknight meals less chaotic.


This sauted chicken is just such a recipe.  It comes together quickly with little prep and calls for ingredients that I always have on hand.  More importantly, it is really delicious.  Chicken is on heavy rotation at Chez V and can get quite boring.  So when I land on a delicious one it goes into the ‘Staples’ file of my recipe folder.





This recipe comes from The Joy of Cooking – which is such a great cooking tome.  I tend to forget what a great resource this cookbook is.  Whenever I am in a cooking rut, I pick it up and discover so many new ways to prepare stuff.   I love that it gives variations on the same recipe.  Helps to prevent burnout on our 'Staples' recipes.








I paired this with fresh peas and rice pilaf for a quick and delicious meal.  Enjoy and Happy Weekend!

kisses,  mrs. V

K - Don't tell anybody but I usually use 2% milk in place of the heavy cream to cut out some fat. Still quite tasty.

Good luck with the upcoming birth - try not to fret too much. I was sort of a basket case right after. The hormone thing is nuts more than the physical. For a brief moment I may or may not have wanted someone to come and pick up the alien that invaded my life - my type A world was thrown for a loop. But I worked it out. You are ahead of the game both mentally and physically. Love reading your blog.
