A Valentine's Feast, with a slight change of plans...

Paul was going to make the Pimento Cheese Stuffed Chicken, but then realized he bought the chicken breasts too thin...so instead of him leaving to go back to the store, i told him to just take a different recipe from the week we had planned out and use that. So that's what he did, and he did it well. It was really good. I can't even explain how strange it was to lay on the couch with "What Not To Wear" playing while he cooked and made the house smell divine. A strange feeling, but not one that I wouldn't mind again.
We also managed to grab a Boston Creme Pie while at the grocery store and had that for dessert. it was delicious! Anyway, on to the recipe! Courtesy of Cooking Light Magazine.


Sautéed Chicken with Sage Browned Butter
Ingredients
4 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Cooking spray
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons butter
2 sage sprigs
1 tablespoon minced shallots
1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
2 tablespoons lemon juice
Fresh sage leaves (optional)
Preparation
1. Place each breast half between 2 sheets of plastic wrap; pound to 1/4-inch thickness. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat; coat with cooking spray. Place flour in a shallow dish; dredge chicken in flour. Add chicken to pan; sauté for 4 minutes on each side or until done. Remove chicken from pan.

2. Add butter and sage sprigs to pan; cook over medium heat until butter browns. Discard sage. Add shallots and thyme; cook for 30 seconds. Add lemon juice; cook for 30 seconds. Serve with chicken. Garnish with sage leaves, if desired.
