Today I made dinner for everyone! It was fun, and yummy! I made chicken apple walnut wraps, which sounds like a weird combination but turned out to be really, really yummy!
I got the recipe from foodfit.com. You can find it here: http://www.foodfit.com/recipes/recipe.asp?rid=1486 but I had to tweak it a little based on what we had/what I like/more people.
1 1/4 cup of white merlot
pinch of salt
13 black peppercorns
juice of 2 lemons
5 chicken breasts
10 tbsps non-fat sour cream
2 1/2 apples chopped
2 stalks celery chopped
1 red onion chopped
some fresh parsley (I just chopped up a few sprigs of it…)
some chopped walnuts (not sure how many I put in… I kept adding more!)
I followed the directions more or less exactly as the recipe called for, so here is what they directed:
1. In a large saucepan combine the wine, salt, peppercorns, lemon juice and thyme. Add the chicken breast and enough water to cover them. Bring the liquid to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and let the chicken cool in the liquid.
2. In a large bowl, mix the sour cream, apples, celery, red onion and parsley together.
3. When the chicken is cool enough to handle, remove it from the liquid. (Discard the liquid.) Cut the chicken into small pieces, add it to the sour cream mixture and toss. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and stir in the walnuts. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
