Cooking again

Haven't posted any meal shots for a long time, so tonight's supper is revealed: chicken breast pieces with button mushrooms and dried apricots in a cream sauce, served with new potatoes and carrots, and fresh-cut spinach.

Absolutely wonderful!


  1. Looks wonderful. Could you please post the recipe for the chicken?

  2. Simple - (these amounts wwere for one serving) Heat a small amount of oil in a lidded frying pan or similar. Add 6 - 8 chicken breast pieces and cook until white. Add 8 washed whole button mushrooms and 6 or 8 halved dried apricots. Stir round and fry for a few minutes, then add a cup of water to act as a cooking liquor, turn the heat down and put the lid on the pan. Cook gently for 15 mins or so, stirring occasionally.

    Remove from heat, stir, pour in a couple of tablespoons of double cream (or as much you want to make as much sauce as you want) and stir round. This will lift the browning from the bottom of the pan and colour the sauce.
    Do not put back onto heat or cream will begin to separate.

    Serve with whatever veg you want and book your next appointment with your cadiologist!

    No salt was used, and for serving it was sprinkled with freshly-ground black pepper.

  3. Sounds yummy! If I was closer, I'd invite us over to eat sometime, so you could have the pleasure of cookng for three.

    Good thing I used preview, because I had "cokng for three". Can't have that on the blog of a priest.

  4. Thanks much for the recipe. I will give it try and let you know how it turns out.
