Chicken in a White Wine and Mushroom Sauce

Chicken in a white wine and mushroom sauce

Cooking with wine creates a beautiful flavor to your food! I try to incorporate it whenever I cook chicken or fish. Today I made a fillet of chicken breast in a white wine and mushroom sauce. I served it over a sweet potato mash and left the skin on the potato for added vitamins and nutrients.
 
Sweet potaoes not only taste delicious but they also provide so many inportant vitamins such as vitamin D, vitamin C and vitamin B6 (which can aid in preventing heart attacks) They also contain iron, which is very important for women and magnesium which is also important  for healthy blood, nerve function and your muscles.
 
So next time you want to make a “potato” with your meal, reach for the “sweet potato” and as always, enjoy!

    How do you cook the potatoes prior to mashing? And….how do you know what wine to use when cooking?

      Hi, and thank you for your comment! To boil the potatoes, I cut them in even size about 2 inches. You can either peel the skin or leave it on, your preference. Place them in a pot of cold salted water. Boil until fork tender, about 12 minutes. Drain them, add butter and milk. How much butter and milk depends on how many potatoes. If you made 2 cups of potatoes, then add 2 tablespoons of butter and about 1/8 cup of milk. I use a hand masher. You can always add more butter or milk depending on the consistency you like for the potatoes.

      To add some flavor to a plain mashed potato you can add either 1 celery stalk with the leaves or/ 1 clove garlic to the potatoes as you boil them. When you drain remove the celery stalk. If you added garlic you can just mash that in with the potatoes for garlic mashed.

      Let me know how your potatoes turned out. Enjoy!
