Sauteed Chicken with Sage Browned Butter

Thank you for visiting! If you like this post...don't forget to Stumble!



Since our move, I try to make dinner that will reheat well.  Grumpy works a lot of late hours and when he gets home, what he eats needs to taste as good (or better) warmed up as it does when I first make it. (this was delish!!) I also look for easy to throw together recipe since I too work and by the time I get home, the last thing I want to do is spend the rest of the night in my kitchen - for the most part.  This recipe was quick, easy, and flavorful.  Defnintely something you should try!
