Need Something Fancy for Dinner? These Stuffed Chicken Paillards will Make You Say, “”Oui!” And Your Husband Say, “Whoa…”Chicken / January 30, 2016
There are times that my cooking stays within the boundaries of the room. And then, there are days where I take over the house. Take last Thursday for example when my husband walked through the door to find his tool box pilfered and me on the floor pounding the holy bejeezus out of my chicken breasts with his huge rubber mallet.
“I wondered who had gotten into my tools..” He quipped, visibly shaken that I had violated the tower of Black and Decker and taken something from the holy of holies.
“I needed something big to make these paillards!” I chirped in, wiping my brow and looking up from my prone position to see more than just a bit of fear on his face. I needed flat chicken breasts, sweetie. See?…” And then he ran out of the room.
I didn’t mean to terrify him; or did I?
Well, anyway. If you’re longing for a beautiful dish for dinner, along with something physical to help you feel powerful, this is your recipe. And the wonderful part is you can serve it hot with creamed sweet potatoes and cheesy rice luxuriously covered with a white wine lemon butter sauce, or cold the next day as a fancy lunch drizzled with a quick honey mustard sauce.
With either choice, you can see that this doubles as way to keep your husband in line and slightly afraid of what you might do next when he’s not looking. Yeah, you’re welcome.
