Chicken Disaster

Well just to prove not all my ideas work - tonight's meal went a bit wrong

Started off fine - frying the chicken breasts in olive oil & a little butter, then added a splash of white wine - still fine, then a drizzle of honey & some double cream - still fine - all things I've done before and have worked perfectly into a lovely creamy sauce.

Taste test, needs a little something so I go for one of my usual fail safes - a dash of soy sauce. So far so good...

Put the rice on & leave the sauce to reduce.

That's where it all went wrong.

Left it a bit too long & it caramelised a bit too much!!



I mean burnt


I tried everything I could think of to rescue the sauce but in the end had to give up & just have the chicken with rice & no sauce

It was ok but not as good as it should have been
