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!

    Yummy, Yummy and easy too. It isn't fun to cook for one but necessary :) Also your pumpkin spice cinnamon buns sound heavenly, I think you may have made them before and brought one to me.
