Chicken Breasts Pierre
This was an awesome recipe! I had every ingredient with the exception of the brown sugar.
I read through the reviews, which is always helpful, prior to cooking it up to look for any tips or suggestions that would sound good. I did read one review that stated they substituted the brown sugar with honey, which was so clever, especially since I didn't have any brown sugar on hand. I also, don't care for stew tomatoes as I'm not a fan of large chunks of tomatoes in any of my dishes, I rather prefer to have small pieces so that there is a piece of tomato in every bite, so I opted for a can of diced tomatoes.
Since chicken breasts, have the issue of being thick on one side and slender on another, I decided to slice three chicken breasts in half lengthwise, to get a thinner cut of chicken breasts so that they would cook evenly and so I would also have the six pieces as is suggested with the original recipe. I paired the chicken recipe with rice, and cooked the rice in a little bit of chicken broth, smothered the Chicken Pierre over the rice on each persons plate and added a side of broccoli to finish the plates, and the family loved it!
There was just a hint of spice, as the honey was a nice pairing in the recipe to give it a good balance. My 2 year old even loved it! That should tell you, that its really not that spicy. This will be included in my rotation. :)
