Julianne Marie is my just-over-one-year-old Goddaughter and namesake. She is perfectly perfect.
Julianne?was born just shy of?nine months after her father, Bryan, (a?fellow copywriter at Fire Mountain Gems), lovingly prepared?and served the following recipe for?his beautiful?wife, Chelsea, on their wedding anniversary.?
This may very well be a recipe for Love; but it is also, most?certainly, a recipe to love. Delicioso!
Anna Maria?s Italiano Chicken
4 Chicken Breasts
4-6 Garlic Cloves-chopped or crushed
1 Medium White Onion-chopped
Crushed Tomatoes-2 cans
Fresh Basil 6-8 leaves lightly chopped
Salt and Pepper
White wine-1 cup
Parmesan Cheese-1/4 c.
Fettuccine or Linguine Pasta
Lightly brown chicken breasts on both sides. Transfer to a baking dish. Saut? garlic and onion. Add crushed tomatoes with juice. Simmer for 15-25 minutes. Add white wine. Simmer another 5-10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Add oregano. Toss in basil and parmesan cheese. Pour over chicken breasts. Cover with foil. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-45 minutes.
