Tonight boring chicken was turned into something vibrant and mouthwatering! On the menu, chicken murphy… I can always recall when I was younger my father asking for this dish whenever we went out to dinner as a family. A blend of different flavor profiles and textures made every bite enticing and left you yearning for more!
So I took the chicken breasts, cut them into chunks and seasoned with salt, along with juice from a jar of hot peppers. I let the chicken marinate for a few hours. While marinating, I prep the supporting ‘actors’ in this dish… one onion sliced, garlic minced, sliced baby bella mushrooms, hot peppers and yukon gold potatoes cut into chunks. After marinating, I pan sear the chicken in olive oil until browned, I set the chicken aside and then in the same pot cook the potatoes also until browned and crisp [you don’t want to skimp on this because it develops amazing flavors]… I then toss in the onions and cook until soft and slightly caramelized. Next I add in the garlic, hot peppers [along with the juice from the jar] and mushrooms and cook until the mushrooms reduce in size. Lastly, the chicken is returned to the pot, along with two cups of white wine and reduced slightly. To not lose a single ounce of this amazing sauce, I offer up some warm crusty bread to sop up every last bit… What a meal!
at a low simmer…
