With this in mind, I came across this meme at Kristina's Favorites, and thought perhaps this was just the thing to prompt me a bit further, and perhaps allow me to add some new recipes to the repertoire that I could
So, as *my* first participation, I thought I'd share one of my recipes that I just made again for the first time in a long time...Mediterranean-Style Chicken. I've had this recipe in my box for years, so I'm not really sure just where it came from, but it's one we keep going back to, when I think to look through my files!
1-2 lbs. skinless chicken pieces
1 tblsp. olive oil
1 (14 oz.) can tomatoes, cut up
1/4 c. dry, red wine
1 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. dried basil
1 bay leaf
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tblsp. water
2 tsp. cornstarch
sliced (pimento) stuffed green olives
spaghetti noodles, cooked & drained
Heat olive oil in 10" skillet over medium heat; Add chicken and brown evenly on both sides (about 10 min.)
Add undrained tomatoes, wine, sugar, basil, garlic and bay leaf; bring to a boil then reduce heat. Cover and simmer until chicken is tender (about 35-40 min.).
In a small bowl, mix water and cornstarch, then add to skillet, stir and cook until thickened and bubbly.
Serve over cooked spaghetti noodles; garnish with olives.
