Parmesan Chicken with Mushroom Wine Sauce

I  arrived home this evening with thoughts of cooking this evening’s dinner and plans for the weekend ahead. I had only been home a few minutes when Mr C came to sit with me, after a few minutes he started to study a piece of paper. I enquired about what he was looking at and he gave an enigmatic reply; a recipe. After further discourse it transpired that he had found a suitable recipe for an impromptu celebratory dinner and that he was going to cook it!

Earlier in the day he learned that he had got promoted at work. Congratulations Mr C :-)

As Mr C started to cook dinner I enquired if he would like a pre dinner sherry, he didn’t seem too keen on the idea. I wondered why until he confessed that he had put a bottle of Champagne in the fridge in the anticipation of the good news.

The meal was Parmesan Chicken with Mushroom Wine Sauce, hasselback potato and broccoli. It was delicious.

      Apart from arranging the dishwasher he rarely does the dishes, that is my job ;-) I this type of meal generates a lot of hand washing ;-)

      But it is worth it :-)

      And it was a wonderful start to the weekend :-)

  4. Congratulations to Mr C and what a lovely dinner he cooked you :)
