Dinner Party.


Tonight we had a couple of guests over to join us for dinner. Thank you to my sisters who actually helped out with today’s meal! ๐Ÿ™‚

*Menu: Stuffed Chicken, Chive Mashed Potatoes, Asparagus, Wedge Salad & of course DESSERT!

This meal takes some time to prepare so I split it up: I made the Stuffed Chicken & Asparagus, I put Taia in charge of the Mashed Potatoes & Dessert, Mia in charge of the wedge salad & Madelana in charge of cleaning (hey it got messy, thanks cindy) ๐Ÿ˜‰

WHAT YOU WILL NEED:

  • 3 packs of 4 chicken cutlets
  • 12 slices Provolone cheese
  • 12 slices of Prosciutto
  • 1 bag of spinach
  • salt/pepper
  • 1 bag of potatoes
  • butter
  • sour cream
  • chives
  • milk
  • 2 bunches of asparagus
  • garlic
  • 2 heads of wedge lettuce
  • blue cheese
  • 3 tomatoes
  • bacon bits
  • something for dessert-> we chose a cake ๐Ÿ™‚

Start by stuffing the chicken. Pound cutlets until thin, sprinkle with salt & pepper. Add one slice of cheese, one slice of prosciutto, and a handful of spinach. Roll and secure with a toothpick. Add oil to a large skillet and coat the chicken with some flour cook for 5 minutes on each side. After chicken is cooked place in a baking dish, heat oven to 350 degrees and cook for 10 minutes.

I chose to make a sauce for the chicken, what you will need is 3 shallots sliced, 2 cups of white wine, 2 1/4 cup of chicken broth, 2 teaspoons of tomato paste. Cook shallots until soft then add the rest, cook until reduced by half and pour over chicken before baking. In a huge pot boil water for the potatoes. While you are waiting for the water to boil, peel and cut the potatoes. When the water is boiling add potatoes & cook until soft. When soft, drain & place potatoes in a mixing bowl. Add butter, milk, salt/pepper, sour cream, chive and mix with a mixture. Top with some more chives ๐Ÿ™‚

To prepare the asparagus, cut the stems off. Add water to a skillet, like the asparagus boil until green. Drain water, add oil & garlic saute for 3 minutes. Now, add two tablespoons of breadcrumbs and add to oven on 350 degrees & bake for 3 minutes.

To prep the wedge salad, Mia cut the salad into wedges & drizzled with blue cheese dressing. She topped them with tomatoes & bacon bits.

TIME FOR DESSERT: Taia made two cakes, she loves to out due herself ๐Ÿ™‚
