PARMESAN-ASIAGO MUSHROOM CHICKEN
The best gift you can give or receive sometimes comes from the kitchen. This recipe is no exception!
Whether planning an intimate dinner for 2, or a great family dinner, this is one of my favorites! This flavorful meal will light up your taste buds and be ready to serve in less than 40 minutes. I serve mashed potatoes and bacon wrapped asparagus as side dishes. Then to compliment this flavorful dinner I finish with Pecan Cobbler for dessert. Enjoy!
1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast (2 large)

PECAN COBBLER with Bourbon sauce
2 ½ cups light corn syrup
2 ½ cups packed brown sugar
½ cups melted butter
4 ½ teaspoons vanilla
6 eggs lightly beaten
2 cups chopped pecans or pecan halves
In large bowl combine and mix corn syrup, brown sugar, butter, vanilla and beaten eggs. Fold in pecans.
1 cup plus 2 Tbsp flour
1 ½ tsp sugar
4 Tbsp. cold water
½ tsp salt
1 stick unsalted cold butter, cut into small cubes
Combine and mix together flour, salt and sugar. Add cubed butter and cut into the flour. Chunks of butter will remain. Stir in water and mix until combined. If dough holds together when pinched with fingers, the dough is good. If not, add a bit more water. Form into a ball and press into a greased 9 inch dish. Make sure you press dough up the sides of the dish. Pour in filling and bake.
Bake at 375 degrees for 30 min or so. I like edges to get crisp. Cool. Top with warm bourbon sauce just before serving.
Combine all ingredients together except for bourbon. Bring to boil and add bourbon. Serve warm over cobbler.
1 cup sugar 2 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup chopped pecans 1 ½ Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp milk 1/3 cup water
1/3 cup bourbon-I prefer Woodford Reserve
