Life right now is a tipping onto the busy side with a 20 page paper due in a couple weeks along wth a couple cakes I need to make, blog work, and other every day home stuff that needs to be taken care of, like errands and getting dinner on the table.
Now, I do most of the cooking around here, and probably for a good reason, but it gets pretty darn tiring to spend a day in the kitchen only to come home and spend the evening in there, too. I appreciate a good frozen pizza, but I can't live off the stuff forever, so quick, simple meals are always a very welcome sight.
This recipe for Chicken in a Creamy Chive Sauce is not only mouthwateringly delicious, but it's quick and easy. You can serve with a side of mashed potatoes or rice with a nice steamed vegetable on the side, like broccoli.
What you'll need:
Fold plastic wrap over chicken breast (to avoid splatters) and flatten with a heavy rolling pin or mallet to approximately 1 cm thickness. Season lightly with salt and pepper, and coat with flour. Heat a frying pan and add a tablespoon of oil. Brown your chicken breast, and remove from pan.
Add another tablespoon of oil, and add diced shallots. Sweat shallots 1-2 minutes until translucent. Sprinkle 1 tbsp flour into the pan and stir. Cook for approximately 1 minute. While stirring, add white wine and chicken stock, mixing the flour into the liquid until smooth. Bring mixture to a boil. Return chicken to the pan, reduce heat, and simmer approximately 6-10 minutes, until chicken is finished cooking.
Stir in sour cream and mustard until smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste and stir in chives at the end.
And there you have it! A quick chicken dinner with sour cream and chives. Serve with a side of buttery mashed potatoes or fluffy rice and some steamed broccoli for a balanced meal.
