Engagement Chicken

Ingredients:

An Oven!  I know you have one, lol. (preheat oven to 375 degrees)

2 large chicken breasts

1 bag of baby spinach (or frozen spinach well drained)

4 mushrooms (fresh)

1 clove of garlic

1/2 cup mozzarella cheese

2tbs butter

olive oil

1/2 cup water

1/2 cup heavy cream

1tsp dried or fresh parsley

salt and pepper to taste

4 toothpicks

Directions:

First chop the garlic and mushrooms. Heat about 2tbs olive oil in a skillet and add garlic and let it cook for a minute before adding half of the bag of spinach. Cook spinach until soft then take off fire. Add the cheese, mix together, and set aside. Butterfly the chicken breast (split it down the middle, and lay open, like  butterfly) and season front and back with salt and pepper. Divide spinach mixture and put in the middle of each piece of chicken and seal closed with toothpicks. Add about 2tsp of olive oil and 1tbs butter to a heated skillet on medium high. Sear each side of chicken until light brown and transfer to the oven for 25 minutes. After 25 minutes move chicken to a plate and add remaining butter to skillet and let melt. Add mushrooms and cook until brown. Add water, cream, parsley, salt and pepper, chicken and let simmer until it thickens. Enjoy and don’t forget to remove the tooth picks.

*Optional

Serve with mashed potatoes. The sauce makes a good gravy.

Now, time for Dessert!

Chocolate Mousse

Ingredients:

4 dark chocolate Hersey’s bars

1tbs unsalted butter

2tbs sugar

4 eggs

1 cup chilled heavy cream or whipping cream

Directions:

First, melt chocolate and butter by placing in a bowl over almost boiling water. When mixture is smooth and glossy remove from heat. Separate egg and add yolks to chocolate mixture. Stir well. Beat egg whites until they hold their shape then add 1tbs sugar. Continue to beat until they form peaks. Whip cream in a chilled bowl until soft peeks form and add 1tbs sugar then continue to beat until the consistency resembles cool whip. Gently fold cream into chocolate mixture until completely mixed and repeat with egg whites. Serve in decorative glasses and place in refrigerator for an hour. Top with strawberries or whipped cream.
