Last week I gave you plenty of dessert options and although I do enjoy baking more than cooking, please don’t mistake me when I say “a “sista” can throw down”! You name it, I probably have made it before or will give it my best. I take that back. If you ask me to make any French cuisine or any other exotic cuisine, I will probably back out simply because of the complexity or I don’t want the smell of the spices lingering in my loft. Have you ever tried to get the smell of curry out of your house? It’s hard man. Anyway, I can really cook. It has always been a personal mission of mine to have a bunch of boys, they go to college, and rant and rave to their friends about how their mom can throw down and they come home every Sunday just to eat my food and stock up on left overs for the week. I want my boys to love my cooking to the point that the women they’ll marry will secretly hate me because they can’t make collard greens or cornbread as good as I can. Well, at least they will have something to shoot for.
This dish that I have created (yes this is a Brown Sugar original) was inspired by….nothing. I felt like eating thin and crunchy chicken with a white sauce. And as you can see in the picture the chicken cutlets are on a bed of fresh mashed potatoes, which I will include the recipe for if you want to make them as well. I like dishes that have a slight crunch. It adds texture and make the dish more fun to eat. That does not apply to every meal, just a few. I urge you to get creative and think were you can add a crunchy texture in your next meal. It just makes everything so much better. This dinner is perfect for one person or two people and it is really simple. Do not get intimidated by the sauce. I promise that it will be great. You can use this sauce for fish or even baked chicken if you decided that you want to do that instead of pan frying the chicken. I added basil and lemon simply because I love the two flavors and joined it just makes it better. If you try this dish come back and let me know how you like it and your own creative spin that you added to it.
