Before we get started with the recipe, here are the two wines we highly recommend to pair with this dish. A Chardonnay and a Merlot, whichever you are in the mood for 😉 Tasting notes are at the bottom of the recipes. 
Here are the links to purchase the wines:

Croze 2019 Chardonnay $34.99

Switchback Ridge 2018 Merlot $68.99

 

Now to the recipe, here is what you will need:

  • Chicken – we used boneless skinless chicken breasts. We half each breast into cutlets to make them flat.
  • Veggies – Mushrooms and bell peppers (any color you like)
  • Garlic
  • Herbs – Dried thyme and rosemary, fresh parsley.
  • Spices – Onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper
  • Cream
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Oil and butter

 

And here is how much you’ll need:

Meat:
3 Chicken breasts (cut in half or use cutlets)
Produce:
3 Colored bell peppers
4 Garlic cloves
1 tsp Garlic powder
8 oz Mushrooms
1 tsp Onion powder
1/4 cup Parsley, fresh
1 1/4 tsp Rosemary, dried
1 1/4 tsp Thyme, dried
Baking & Spices:
1 Pepper
1/2 tsp Pepper
1 Salt
1/2 tsp Salt
Oils & Vinegars:
1 tsp Oil
Dairy:
1 3/4 tbsp Butter
1 1/2 cup Cream
1/2 cup Parmesan

 

Here is how the fun went:

I made the chicken first. I cut the chicken breasts in half so they were thinner and would cook quicker. I rubbed oil and Parmesan cheese on the chicken, put a little butter and oil in the pan, seared each side for 7-8 minutes.

Once chicken was cooked, I put them on a plate and added a little more oil and butter to the pan with some chopped garlic.

Then I added the yummy veggies (peppers & mushrooms) and sautéed for one minute.

Next I sprinkled in the green onion, parsley, poured 1 1/2 cups heavy cream, 1/2 cup Parmesan, salt, pepper, (you can add Italian seasonings or onion powder, garlic powder, rosemary and thyme if you want). Stir everything together.

Lastly, it’s time to put the chicken breasts back into the pan and cook on low-medium heat for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add extra parsley to garnish. And ta-dahh! A dinner bursting at the seams with flavor. Now for the wine!

 

About the wine pairings!

Croze 2019 Chardonnay $34.99This wine is pure, precise and wonderfully refined with notes of vibrant citrus, pear and red peach flavors, spicy, toasted oak while maintaining a bright acidity. Barrel aged for 8 months in 20% new French oak, our Croze Chardonnay embodies the balance of brilliant acidity and round, integrated oak that define Croze winemaker Daniel Benton's approach to chardonnay.

Switchback Ridge Merlot: This powerhouse Merlot draws you in with striking aromas of ripe raspberry, red currant, and a hint of vanilla. The palate offers a rich sweetness of fruit, pleasantly viscous with an array of ripe fruit flavors. The tannin's are refined and gentle, perfectly balanced out with bright acidity, and lead to an incredibly long finish that rivals any Merlot.
