    TXOLDHAM's Note:

    Another wonderful recipe found in the Pink Adobe Cookbook. A nice Chardonnay would go nicely with this dish. This would be a great dish for a dinner party. Definely not low-cal but worth the splurge!

    CILANTRO SAUCE

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Roll in flour and shake off the excess. In a heavy skillet, heat butter and brown lightly the breasts on both sides. Add the chicken stock, cover and simmer for about 10 minutes.
    2. 2
      While chicken is simmering, prepare the Cilantro Sauce. In a food processor fitted with the steel blade add 2 cups of cilantro, the pine nuts (or almonds or the mix of both), Parmesan cheese and garlic and blend into a paste. Add softened butter and then slowly pour olive oil through the feed tube until mixture is the consistency of heavy cream. Set aside.
    3. 3
      Cook fettuccine according to package directions. Drain and place on a large platter. Toss with butter. Toss in the Cilantro Sauce, reserving some to use as a spread for the chicken.
    4. 4
      Place the chicken on a separate platter and sprinkle the remaining fresh cilantro on top.
    5. 5
      Serve the remaining Cilantro Sauce on the side. Pass grated Parmesan at the table.

      I made this recipe last night, and everyone loved it! I tweeked it a bit to make it a bit easier and avoid my past issue of too much oil. First, I rubbed the chicken with a very little olive oil and seasoned with salt and pepper. No flour. Then I put them into a Mario Batali lasagna pan-similar to Le Creuset, enamel coated cast iron. Added a cup and a half broth and put into a 375 oven for 35 minutes.<br/> The sauce was made exactly as recipe calls for, but I used a scant cup of olive oil, not a cup plus two tbs. Added extra Parmesan cheese, 1.75 cup or more.<br/> Finally, only 1.50 tbs butter on noodles. Just enough to toss them and keep them separated, no clumping together.<br/> This is a keeper! <br/> Steak Dunigan tomorrow night at our house. It'll have to do until we get to Santa Fe!
