To continue chicken main recipes for my protein diet, I combined the breaded chicken with black pepper sauce.
The sauce I prepared is a Lidl from the shelf product. I thought I would try it with chicken breast. The sauce had a fairly nice flavour, I didn’t have to add anything. It was mildly pungent and made the chicken’s flavour better.
I had green leaf salad: iceberg with baby Spinach and a glass of gewurtztraminer.
Fitness chicken breast. If you marinate the fillets in flavoured oil it will be more tenderer.
2 chicken breast fillets
Oil to marinate
Herbs like provance herb mix
Oil to fry
2 tbsp Chopped onion
1 tbsp Ginger paste
1 tbsp capers, chopped
100 ml white wine
1 cube chicken stock
400 ml water
100 ml double cream
Crushed black pepper
Marinate the fillets in oil flavoured with provance herb mix for overnight.
First fry the fillets on a little oil on both sides and remove and keep warm.
Add the onion and ginger, and capers to the remaining oil, fry stirring.
Add the white wine. Then add water and chicken stock cube. Simmer, then put back the chicken fillets. Season with crushed black pepper.
Add one tablespoon herb butter. Simmer for 5-10 minutes, then add sour cream or double cream. Simmer for a few minutes and serve.
A side dish can be
Potato with butter and parsley
I visited the Regency Park Hotel for dinner.
Among the main courses I liked
Pan fried salmon with lemon and dill sauce
Confit duck leg
I chose the salmon this time.
It was served with parsley potatoes and steamed mixed vegetables and lemon sauce.
The say e was lemony which I liked, the salmon was served without skin, and the veggies were a little hard to bite.
The way I like it.
I had Australian chardonnay with this meal.
It was a very tasty dinner.
This salmon may go well with steamed asparagus, green beans as well.
