Seared Chicken and Mushrooms

IMG_4161

 

Is this not the most gorgeous piece of chicken you have ever seen?  I definitely eat with my eyes first, let’s be honest, who doesn’t?  I usually am not a huge fan of dark meat, I guess you can say I am more of a breast gal 😉 But my ex was a huge fan of the darker meat and loved the skin (no thank you!) and we make sacrifices for the ones we love, which is why I went out of my tastebud comfort zone and made what was a very wonderful surprise.  Safe to say when I made this Tony and I were speechless over this dinner.  We seriously kept looking at each other saying “oh my gosh, this is amazing!”  Lesson learned, sometimes stepping outside of the comfort zone is okay and sometimes boys do know what they are talking about (even though I still won’t eat the skin!)
