It was too rainy to truly blacken the chicken breasts as that smoky event must be done outside.
So, I cheated and pseudoblackened the chicken inside on the stove top. Each skinless, boneless chicken breast was rubbed with a little olive oil/butter mix and then dredged in Cajun Seasoning.
After that, they went into the hot cast iron pan.
After a while, I took them out and set them aside. Then I turned my attention to the pan with it's browned bits of this and that stuck to the bottom ...
Into the hot pan went some cheap wine and sliced mushrooms. I worked the bottom with a wooden spatula to release the good bits stuck to the bottom. A little chicken broth and some corn starch thickened the pan drippings and produced a nice sauce.
While the sauce was finishing, I cut the chicken into strips and returned it to the pan for a good tumble in the sauce.
A cool salad to rescue your tongue between bites of spicy chicken and we were ready to laissez le bon temps roulez!
Elle a approuvé.
I'm tossing in a second post this Friday morning, ... a puzzler to take your mind off the sound of your stomach growling.
TGIF and TGIPD!
