While in Paris Word Press notified me that I had reached my 100th post!! But I can’t celebrate, not yet… As I usually make a double post (English –Spanish) I’m still 31 post short (well, now 30). But it is thrill to get that message, isn’t it?
I’ve been blogging for 8 months now and it is addictive. The whole process from choosing the recipe, cooking, taking the picture, posting, receive comments (thanks for that!), answer them… every step is wonderful.
So even if is not my 100th yet, I feel great and soo motivated to keep writing…
Last weekend too, sweet Nia, from photographyofnia nominated me for the “Seven Links, Seven Post, Seven Blogs” award. Is an honor, for sure, I already made this a while ago and that was how I met so many great bloggers out there. So I’m thrill to do it again. Thanks Nia!
Photographyofnia is such a beautiful blog, with amazing pictures took by the very talented Nia. Take a look, you won’t regret it.
Ok now, how about some Chicken?
Chicken in tarragon sauce
Ingredients4 skinless chicken breasts 30 g butter 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil Salt and pepper
For the tarragon sauce2 tbsps. tarragon vinegar 6 tbsps. White wine 250 ml chicken broth 4 sprigs fresh tarragon, plus 2 tbsps. of chopped leaves 300 ml cream
Spice chicken breasts on both sides. Heat over medium heat a large skillet that can accommodate all the chicken in a single layer. Melt butter with oil and brown breasts.
Put the chicken into a baking dish and roast in preheated oven at 375 ºF for 15 to 20 minutes or until tender (and when pierced in thickest part comes out a clear juice). Reserve covered with aluminum foil.
To make the sauce, remove excess of fat from the dish, scrape and pour the juices into a skillet over medium heat, add vinegar and wine, let simmer until sauce is reduced by half. Stir in broth and tarragon sprigs and cook until juice has reduced by half. Incorporate the cream and let simmer until sauce has reduced by half. Discard the tarragon sprigs and correct seasoning if needed, finally add the chopped tarragon.
Serve chicken sliced and covered with sauce.
Almost forgot! The challenge …
