Apricot-Dijon Chicken

I want I can claim that tonight’s supper was caused by a thrill of nostalgia extra from recently’s huge wedding anniversary; sadly, the rotton avocado that I was preparing to make this with is worthy of the credit score.

See, apricot-Dijon poultry with [mushroom] risotto (plus a salad, gelato) is the initial dish I ever before prepared for David. Prior to you’re all like, aww, just how pleasant or whatever, allow me include that I had actually welcomed an entire team of my buddies over to my dormitory to consume, as well– (reduces voice, indicate the guy) I had not been so certain regarding that a person as a day, day then. It’s fairly feasible (most definitely so) that this little information was unbeknownst to him up until he saw me prepping an outrageous quantity of food for simply 2 individuals. Shock!

Anyhow, the initial dish requires poultry upper legs, which one fifty percent people suches as greater than the various other– favorably, busts function well in their location. While the meat is absolutely drier, the going along with sweet-tangy sauce greater than offsets it. When it comes to the risotto, I simply threw up the old standby, mixing in some heated up icy peas (8 ounces) and also a bag of child spinach (6 ounces) together with the Parm at the end. Therefore supper was conserved!
