Quick & Easy Caramelized Black Pepper Chicken

Tuesday, 25 August 2009

I'm always looking out for quick and easy recipes that I can cook during weeknights. When I saw this at Lisa is cooking and her link to the 30 Best, Fast Recipes Ever in Food and Wine website, I bookmarked it without any hesitation. The hardest part was deboning the chicken, you could use chicken breast but that's our least favourite part of the chicken. I would highly suggest adding the mushrooms as they soaked up all the wonderful sauces and they were so tasty! I'd try adding less sugar the next time, other than that, this recipe is a keeper!
