Luscious alert! You’ve been warned.
It’s still chilly, so let’s make something classic and warm and homey before we can’t anymore.
Not that we’ll not be able to make this in June. We may not want to, is all I’m saying.
You may want to. Don’t let me stop you! I’m just meaning that this is a warm and comforting dish and not like, a salad.
Pretty straightforward. And there are versions of this type of recipe errrwerrrrrr, but I had a little bit of wine left (gasp!), and didn’t want to drink it (double gasp!) so I used it up in this recipe. So, if you’re in the same boat as I was (never!), this is your solution.
…did you leave?
We’ll melt butter and sear some thighs! Boneless and skinless, like I tend to do. If you have skin on yours, totally fine. Just get some color on ’em! Then we’ll pop them out of the pan while we make the rest.
We’ll slice up a shallot, some baby bella mushrooms (twist out the caps if you want. I love doing that!) and garlic. Well, you’ll chop the garlic. You can slice if you want! I’m not bossy.
We’ll sauté the shallots for a little bit, the mushrooms for another little bit, and the garlic for the last little bit. Roger?
Then we’ll violently add in that last Tbs. butter and the lil’ sprinkle of flour. Stir it with your wooden spoon for a second, then slowly pour in the wine and milk, letting the whole sauce bubble up and thicken a little. It smells so good in your kitchen right now.
Like this. The flour thickens it and it really takes on this deep flavor with the wine. The wine you didn’t want to drink (the horror!).
Then we’ll just nestle the chicken back in for a few more minutes and boom, done.
Let’s garnish with minced parsley while we’re at it! Noooow we’re done.
I’m telling you, that sauce is stupid delicious. Just creamy enough to hug your soul innards.
And you know, you could always have a little lemon on the side to wake it up! Taste it and see what you think. It’s rustic and homey enough as is.
Look at that sauuuuuuce, good gracious sakes alive.
Have some cooked white rice on the side for serving! You could definitely go with pasta if you’re not feeling rice. Even polenta would be positively wonderful. Anything works here.
Get ya face in it!
Whip this up tonight, you will fall straight over.
