Question.

  To wash or not to wash?-That is the question. Some people brush them off with a paper towel. Some people rinse them in water. How do YOU clean your mushrooms?

Do you have a messy kitchen gadget drawer that houses your measuring spoons? Well, get them out of there and hung em up!

Go to the store and get some Command Hooks, hang them on the inside of one of your kitchen cabinets..and there you have it..a little less messy drawer!

I can sure make some ugly food. But just casue it is ugly ,does not mean it was not delicious. If you look around on my blog, you will not see much food styling going on. I take the photos as they appear on my plate, little no NO EDITING, because are you really going to style your food before you eat it? no, I don’t think so. Sure, it makes for pretty pictures. But I am all about being real here. I wouldn’t want to you make something and it didn’t look as pretty as you saw it on my site. Unfair..unfair to you.
I hope you don’t mind seeing some unattractive food here..do you?

Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 4
 
A delicious but unattractive chicken dish made with the ingredients you have on hand.
Ingredients
  • ½ cup flour
  • ½ tablespoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley
  • 1½ pounds bloneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • ¼ cup white wine
  • 1 cup sour cream
Instructions
  1. Place the flour, salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder and parsley in a large gallon zip bag.
  2. Cut the chicken into strips or 1" cubes.
  3. Place the chicken in the bag with the flour and toss to coat.
  4. Melt the butter in a large sauté pan over medium heat.
  5. Once the butter is melted add the chicken and brown on both sides (the butter will begin to brown..this is perfect).
  6. Stir in the chicken stock and wine. The sauce will begin to thicken.
  7. Simmer on low for about 5 minutes or until the chicken is done.
  8. Place the sour cream in a large measuring cup or bowl.
  9. To prevent the sour cream from curdling, add some of the hot sauce into the sour cream and mix. Add enough sauce so that the sour cream is no longer cold.
  10. Add the sour cream into the sauce and stir until combined.
  11. Salt and pepper to your liking.
  12. Serve over rice if you desire.
