1/6 Photos of Hot Toddy Chicken With Pancetta and Garlic Mashed Potatoes
French Tart's Note:
Tender chicken breasts cooked with whisky, honey & lemon; garnished with crisp pancetta slices & served on a bed of fluffy garlic infused mashed potatoes. A recipe devised for last Winter's evening meal menu - especially for candlelight & cosy fireside dining!! This is especially good all year around however & also works well with bourbon whisky too. Serve with any Winter greens, just lightly steamed & dressed in a little butter with freshly ground black pepper.Sublime!
