- 3 chicken breasts
- I used chicken tenders because I already had them on hand.
- 1 Tablespoon of olive oil
- 1/3 cup white wine
- Be sure to sip on a glass while you’re cooking!
- 2/3 cup crumbled blue cheese (4 oz)
- or more to your taste…you know, whatever floats your boat
- 3/4 cup heavy cream
- 1 tablespoon finely chopped parsley
- 2-3 cups of smaller noodles. Orzo or Farfalline work great.
- Preheat oven to 375
- If using chicken breasts, slice them lengthwise so that you create two from the original breast. They are thinner this way and cook quicker.
- In an OVENPROOF saucepan, bring olive oil to medium heat and cook the chicken about 2-3 minutes on each side.
- Once the chicken is seared (a little golden brown on both sides, doesn’t have to be cooked through, yet), add the white wine and turn the heat to low.
- Simmer the chicken in the wine for 8-10 minutes until the wine is reduced by half.
- While doing all of this … don’t forget to boil your noodles!
- Add the cheese, heavy cream, and the parsley.
- For just another minute, simmer it all together. Then pop the whole thing in the oven for 15 minutes. The sauce will thicken to a delicious consistency!
We were lucky enough to have our tour led by the actual founder of this fine establishment and creator of delicious beers. It was really interesting to hear how he started brewing beers in his dorm room and today they are sold in bars and grocery stores all over Texas.
We’ve been living in Houston just a little over two months now and we are having so much fun exploring the city and trying new things every weekend. Once I get my Houston “bucket list” complete, I will definitely share it with you all.
Hope everyone is having a happy Monday!
Alas, the first coat of paint was successfully applied and then a bird pooped right smack dab on the center of the table!
The paint dried really fast so it only took about twenty minutes or so of waiting in between coats. I probably could have gotten away with just one coat of paint on this, but due to the large amount of water damage it needed two.
Once the paint was dry, I sprayed the poly on. Polyurethane helps to lock in the paint and also gives it that glossy look that a finished piece of furniture has. The poly dried in less than an hour so it was time to bring the updated tier table back inside the house.
