Sandy says she keeps forgetting I have this blog...and lately I am feeling the same way. I forget I have it! That's bad.....
Okay...'nuff whining....onward with the chicken. This is one of those amazing dishes that is so easy to do and yet tastes great !
It's from a little booklet called 101+ Chicken Recipes.
1/2 cup medium hot chunky taco sauce (I like Pace)
1/4 cup Dijon style mustard
2 TBSP fresh lime juice (sometimes I use lemon)
3 whole boneless skinless chicken breasts, halved (thighs would be great too)
2 TBSP butter or margarine
Combine taco sauce, mustard and lime juice in large bowl. ( I usually add some garlic, basil and rosemary, too) Add chicken, turning to coat. Cover; marinate in 'fridge at least 30 minutes.
Melt butter in large skillet over medium heat 'til foamy. Remove chicken from marinade; reserve marinade. Add chicken to skillet; cook about 10 minutes or 'til brown on both sides.
Add marinade; cook about 5 minutes or til chicken is tender and marinade glazes chicken.
Remove chicken to serving plater. Boil marinade over high heat 1 minute; pour over chicken.
Garnish with cilantro or lime slices if desired. Serve with yogurt.
::: Last time I made this I didn't bother with marinating ... too close to suppertime. Quickly browned each side of the chicken .. poured marinade mixture over chicken ... let it simmer gently for a bit.. turned off heat. Add yogurt directly to the chicken and sauce... gently turning it into sauce... let it sit for about 5 more minutes or so... and enjoy!
::: You can use regular mustard..but, don't use quite as much... do some tasting... or even dry mustard..again... taste... I've tried it all ways... still great.
Last time I had chicken thighs... and I had some fresh Rosemary on hand..so tossed in a sprig... mmmm ... so fragrant! Love fresh Rosemary...
We had it with lovely creamy mashed potatoes and some sprouts...
