Chicken Thighs with Lemon & Prosecco

Standard

FullSizeRender

These were great and very easy to make!

Ingredients:

1 pkg. boneless, skinless chicken thighs

1/2 c. flour

1 leek, thinly sliced

1/3 cup julienned sun dried tomatoes

4 garlic cloves, minced

1 lemon, sliced

1/4 c. prosecco

1/4 c. chicken broth

3 T. butter

Fresh parsley

Directions:

Heat some oil in a Dutch oven. Combine salt, pepper, and flour in a Ziploc bag big enough to hold the chicken. Add the chicken and mix well.

Shake off the excess flour from the chicken before placing them in the dutch oven. Cook for a few minutes. Add the leek and flip the chicken. Add the tomatoes and garlic and cook for a few more minutes. Add the lemon slices.

Add the prosecco and stir to scrape up the browned bits on the bottom. Stir in the broth, increase the heat to high and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until the liquid has reduced by about half.

Reduce the heat to low. Stir in the butter until melted. Sprinkle with parsley and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Standard

fullsizerender

This was definitely a crowd pleaser, and best of all, it’s a one-dish meal! I even used Tru Roots Ancient Grains pasta, to make it even healthier!

Ingredients:

12 oz. Tru Roots Ancient Grains penne pasta, cooked

1 onion, finely chopped

3 Italian sausages, casing removed and chopped

1 small radicchio, thinly sliced

1/2 c. Prosecco

1 t. curry powder

2 T. heavy whipping cream

1 t. chopped parsley

Freshly grated parmesan cheese

Salt & pepper

Butter and oil

Directions:

Boil the pasta in salted water until cooked al dente.

While the pasta is cooking, heat the oil and butter in a frying pan.

Add the onions and cook until translucent.

Add the sausage, breaking it up with a potato masher until cooked through.

Add the radicchio and cook until wilted.

Season with salt, pepper and curry. Simmer for a few minutes. Stir in the cream and mix.

Remove the pasta from the water with a slotted spoon and add it to the sauce pan.

Add the parsley and mix it altogether.

Pour the pasta in a casserole dish. Sprinkle the parmesan cheese on top.

Cook in the broiler until brown and crunchy.
