Creamy Cilantro Chicken with a Kick
We enjoyed this dish. I try not to change recipes on the first try but sometimes ingredients or preferences interfere. My biggest problems with almost all recipes is they do not have veggies in them. So, to incorporate some summer squash, and also because once long ago I was a saute cook in NY, I made some small changes.
First I sauteed summer squash in olive oil with onions (4 saucer squash and 1/3 of an onion) in olive oil after dusting with flour to coat.
Browned a little, then removed from heat and spread on half cookie sheet, placed in oven which was hot from another dish, but now turned off.
Added more oil to skillet, and then sauteed chicken with all marinade, covering for a bit to steam the chicken. When sauce was reduced to a thick sauce, mixed in warm squash and onions. Plated chicken pieces with leftover rice and arugula covered with sauce (always double sauce- you will never regret it!), along with a warm white bean balsamic salad.
It was very tasty! Next time I will add a little salt, and a little lime juice at the end of the reduction.
