OK, so be prepared that most Sunday's we have a full dinner with no shortcuts. We try to leave Sunday evening for quiet and we love to end our weekend with a nice dinner. We try to invite close friends to dinner too. People who we really care about and can relax with! Tonight we had my brother-in law and one of our cycling friends.
We had chicken cacciatore over sweet potatoes with roasted asparagus. I used a combination of chicken breast tenders and bone-in skinless chicken thighs. I thought the dark meat would add a richness. I used bell peppers (red & green), mushrooms (button & cremini), and diced tomatoes. For additional flavor I used a Oregon Pinot Grigio, crushed red pepper flakes, fresh thyme, and a bay leaf. I liked the sweetness of the wine but next time I think I will omit the thyme. I think the smashed sweet potatoes were a great base.
