Chicken Scallopine with Sage and Fontina Cheese

by Courtney on January 31, 2011

Boy, do I have a dinner recipe for you guys tonight!


And do you want to know the best part??

I didn’t lift a finger to prepare it.


That’s right! Jay struck again with his off-the-charts cooking skills. I mean, I knew he could cook, but tonight was seriously impressive.

We sat down (in the living room, since we have yet to buy a new kitchen table…) to an amazing meal of Chicken Scallopine with Sage & Fontina Cheese,



a side of whole wheat pasta with extra sauce from the chicken dish,


and a side of fresh-steamed garlic green beans.


Holy Cow DELICIOUS!! Surprised smile

Jay did a little searching online earlier and came across this recipe for the chicken dish. While the prep did involve some extra dishes, he admitted that there really wasn’t anything too difficult about it at all…so don’t let the long directions scare you away!

We both agree that this is a recipe we MUST share with you all, so here ya go!


Ahhh, I’m still swooning over how good this was!

I will warn you though…as you probably know, I’m sort of a wimp when it comes to spicy foods. And despite having only 1/2 a teaspoon of red pepper flakes, this dish still packed a good amount of heat. Towards the end of the meal, my mouth was on FIRE!


But in a totally good way, of course. Winking smile

Now that dinner is done, I think I’m ready to snuggle on the couch and catch up on some good ‘ol How I Met Your Mother and a little piece of leftover Birthday Cake.

Life is GOOD. Open-mouthed smile

And in other news…remember this old kitchen??


Well, be on the lookout for the Big Reveal of the new digs…it’s slated to come up verrrrry soon! Smile

Can you believe tomorrow is already going to be February?!? Man, how time flies!

Question for the Evening:

What are you looking forward to this February??
