I have to admit. I’ve never loved chicken. Even as a little girl, I had my problems with it. My mom used to have to cut the chicken off the bone for me before I agreed to eat it. And even if it was boneless, it had to be thin enough to my liking, not to “chickeny,” you get the point. Still not chicken’s biggest fan even as an adult.
I think karma has come back to bite me because neither of my girls are chicken fans. And the things I have to do to even get them to try it…you wouldn’t believe. So Ima, here’s my official and public apology to you for all those years of denying the chicken you spent your evenings making for me. For all the tricks and recipes you tried to get me to even take a bite. I wish little me could have gotten a look into parenthood back then to realize how agonizing I was making it for you.
But with this chicken aversion comes a bunch of fun and flavor bursting recipes. For me and my girls, we can only tolerate chicken in sauce, with a very flavorful profile that gets rid of the “chicken-ness” of the chicken. Ladies and gents, I give you my Chicken and Wine Sauce. It’s a keeper. And even the pickiest of chicken eaters have a chance here.
Be sure to keep an eye out for more picky chicken eater faves! Maybe we’ll even make a whole cookbook of it one day 😉
