Enchanted Chicken

Try this dish for a romantic Valentines Dinner! A simple skillet of chicken thighs cooked on the stove top and allowed to simmer in a fortified wine!
The best romantic dinner should be smaller courses, this lets you spend time together. Keep the portions down to size, you don't want him falling asleep do you?

You could start with a cup of tomato bisque soup, a small portion of asparagus, maybe some rice. 2 thighs with mushrooms and this luscious sauce! Then perhaps skewer a chunk of pineapple, a chocolate candy, and a cube of cheese onto tooth picks arraigned around a warm pool of caramel to be hand fed to each other piece by piece. Get the picture? Or just fix some green beans to balance this rich sauce.


½ cup all-purpose flour
4 chicken thighs
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 tablespoons butter
8 oz. sliced fresh mushrooms
a 187 ml bottle of Sauvignon Blanc
2Tbs Triple Sec Orange
½ cup heavy cream
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
½ cup cornstarch

Rinse the mushrooms and let drain.

Remove chicken from package, rinse and pat dry. Coat well with cornstarch and let sit on counter for 30 – 45 minutes.

Shake off.

In a shallow bowl put the flour. Dredge the chicken shaking to remove any excess.

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until very hot but not smoking. Add
1 tablespoon of the butter and cook the chicken thighs until golden brown on both sides, about 8 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and set aside.

Add 1 tablespoon of the remaining butter to the pan and add the mushrooms. Cook, stirring frequently, until mushrooms are golden brown around the edges and have given off their liquid. (about 5 minutes)
Add the wine and Triple Sec. Bring to a boil, scraping to remove any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. When reduced by half, add the heavy cream and cook for 3 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened slightly.

Lower the heat to medium and return the thighs to the pan. Cover and continue to cook until they are cooked through and the sauce has thickened, about 6 – 10 minutes. Swirl in the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter, add salt and pepper, to taste.

Serve on a platter with love.
