Spicy, Chocolate & Chardonnay Chicken Recipe & Matching Sage Apron

The other day I was dying for comfort food and didn’t feel like going to the store.  I also didn’t want to have to do much so I looked around at what I had in my kitchen and came up with a brand new recipe for a delicious and easy to make spicy, chocolate & chardonnay chicken recipe.  Not only is this recipe amazing comfort food, but because I sort of boil the chicken in chardonnay instead of frying it, I pretend its healthy for me.  Before I give you my spicy, chocolate & chardonnay chicken recipe, I want to share with you the perfect apron to match while you make and serve this delicious, decadent dish.  Remember, this blog is supported by your shopping for aprons without using coupon codes or clicking to another site when you shop, so please click the aprons link if you like this apron or want to find another and buy it without leaving the store to find a coupon or deal for the retailer.  they also feature a ton of other styles and accessories for you to choose from.

Spicy, Chocolate & Chardonnay Chicken recipe.

So I was stressed out and wanted something that wasn’t too spicy and was definitely comforting, but healthy.  I combined two of my favorite things, chardonnay and spicy chocolate with something I could eat for lunch, chicken.  This recipe is extremely easy to make and something I highly recommend if you want some easy comfort food to make on the weekends or after work when you just want a glass of wine and to relax.

Here’s what you need:

  • 1 skinless chicken breast per person
  • Dark cocoa powder (regular cocoa powder will work too)
  • Ancho chili powder
  • Sea salt
  • Pepper
  • Chardonnay

Take your chicken breasts and place them into a container.  Now toss on a pinch of salt and pepper to season it.  Throw on about a half to a full tablespoon of ancho chili powder onto the chicken breasts and then throw on a couple heaping tablespoons of cocoa powder over the whole thing.  Now shake it up so everything gets covered.  Now you have two options.

1.  Pour in chardonnay and let is sit in the fridge for about an hour (This will wash away the spices since they didn’t get to sit, but you’ll still be able to taste them.

2.  Place it in the fridge for an hour and let it marinade.

Now take a large pan that has a cover and set it on the stove at about medium high heat.  If you used option 1.  Pour the entire thing into the pan and cover it.  If you used option 2.  Place the chicken breasts into the pan and then pour in all of the remaining powder from your dry rub and then add your chardonnay so it just starts to cover the sides of the chicken breasts.  Now let everything slowly cook for about 20 minutes with the lid over the pan.  You may want to flip the breasts and check on them half way through.  Once the chicken is done cooking just take it out of the pan and you are ready to eat once it has cooled off enough.

I absolutely love this new recipe for spice, chocolate & chardonnay chicken and know that you will too.  Also, don’t forget to click through the aprons and buy one to help support this blog (without using a coupon or discount code) so I can continue to bring you new fun and easy to make recipes.  Also, feel free to leave a comment below if you like or have any other variations of this recipe you’d like to try or add.
