Do you get tired of your standard meals?
Do you get stuck in a rut, looking for new ideas?
I know I do.

Next question ....have you heard of the Pioneer Woman?
She has a great blog, covering homeschooling, photography, and cooking among other things!
She is a funny writer.
she will have her own Food Network show starting this fall,
and they are making a movie about her and her family based on another book she wrote
On top of that she has 4 kids!
She is a busy woman!
So this week before grocery shopping a picked out 4 recipes to try from her blog.
The first up was this one just posted on Monday.
A definite keeper!

I am not going to post any pictures because she has done all the work (see recipe link above)!

I am going to provide you with a critique:

1. Allow enough time for browning the chicken this takes a little longer than you would think. Allow 10-15 minutes per batch. After that the dish comes together pretty quick.

2. BE CAREFUL WITH THE WHISKEY! I have had some bad luck with adding alcohol to dishes and it not cooking off. I reduced the whiskey from 1-1/2 cups, to 1/2 cup and than added a cup of chicken broth. (I could still taste it a little if you don't want to taste it at all just substitute chicken broth where you see would be cheaper too.)

We will definitely be making this again.
The kids said keeper, everyone left the table stuffed!
A sure sign of a good meal right!?
Let me know if you try it!


  1. Yummy, it looks great. You can make that for us next time we come for dinner!

  2. oh yummy. i can smell it cooking already. and with your famous avocado/cabbage slaw...forget about it. oh by the way, have made 'your' slaw numerous times and have had plenty ask for the recipe. the gift that keeps on giving.
