The time of the year when we are reminded with the spirit of love – Valentine’s and here in the Philippines you will see flowers, chocolates, and teddy bears. I have a feeling that I scared away the heart’s day vibe by uttering unsolicited opinions how overrated the day is. Still, I am still the girl at heart who will appreciate little romance.
To change the mood, I decided to cook something. It’s like every occasion I cook, this time I prepared a creamy tuna Carbonara with flavorful meat on the side.
What I did was, I prepared the dry rub.
- BBQ Powder
- Cayenne Powder
- Garlic Powder
- Ground Black Pepper
Drizzling the clean chicken with Olive oil, I pressed the powder mixture carefully. Afterwards, seared it in a non-stick pan. Depending on the thickness of the chicken breast wait until cooked.
For the sauce, I added the following into my pan.
- Red Wine (Half Cup)
Wait until it thickens, return the chicken, have it reduced a little more…
AND you are good to go. The spices left in the pan from the chicken added extra kick in the sauce.
I know the photo doesn’t look inviting but I tell you it’s worth the try. I guess my palette has its own instinct for a good food.
I hope I can learn enticing plating in the future. *laughs*
Happy Sunday loves!
