Chicken Breasts with Creamy Vegetable Topping
Red bell pepper, scallion, and carrot are sautéed briefly, then mixed with cream cheese to form a bright, speckled sauce that bakes right on the chicken—simple and delicious. Quick Chicken Recipes
Variation Chicken Breasts with Boursin-Cheese Sauce: Substitute a 5 1/2-ounce package of plain or garlic-and-herb-flavored Boursin cheese for the cream cheese.
The rich topping on the chicken leaves one wanting a simply prepared vegetable, such as steamed broccoli, asparagus, or green beans.
A crisp and fruity white will cut through the rich cheese and pair well with the acidity of the bell pepper and scallion. A Kabinett Riesling from the Mosel-Saar-Ruwer region of Germany or, if you can find it, a Riesling from the Finger Lakes in New York is a good possibility.
