My friend Kristina gave me a recipe for “boyfriend chicken” a few weeks back. She told me it’s called that because it’s her “go-to” recipe for impressing new boyfriends. I think that’s adorable. Between this, and all of the recipes entitled “boyfriend bait” floating around on Pinterest these days, I decided to come up with my own.
This is totally what I’d make to impress a new beau, LOL… or, in my case, my hubby of 18 years. We enjoyed this with a glass of delicious Cabernet. It’s the perfect Friday night or weekend treat when you want to let loose a little and indulge.
