Please don’t tell Colorado …but I’m having a love affair with Oregon. Let’s talk some Oregonese.
Our two last vacations have been to the Northern Willamette Valley region of Oregon. What a foodie and wine lover’s paradise. The Willamette Valley is in the heart of Oregon Wine Country and contains two-thirds of the state’s wineries and vineyards. And the Pinot Noir…world class in my humble opinion.
And where there’s wine there’s always an abundance of impressive cuisine. From wonderful restaurants, to farms where you pick your own bounty, to wineries offering up world-famous chefs to prepare winemaker’s dinners, to famous cheese factories like Tillamook. In Oregon you’ll find a culinary discovery around every bend in the road.
So with all that said, I’ve recreated this wonderful chicken cutlet recipe with garlic cream sauce. A recipe idea that comes from an Oregon Cookbook, The Vintner’s Kitchen. I’ve included an affiliate link for your convenience.
The original recipe calls for making your own Chicken Hazelnut Sausage. Which I did. And I wasn’t crazy about the flavor, but very satisfied that I made my own sausage.
Totally impressed with the garlic and red bell pepper cream sauce, I wanted to come up with a chicken recipe that was much less time consuming than sausage. I’ve simply floured and sauteed chicken cutlets. Delicious and a much more manageable meal.
How to roast garlic. Roasted garlic adds a an amazing depth of flavor to any recipe. And elevates this sauce to an over the top experience. Roasting garlic is so easy.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Get out your muffin tin pan. Cut the end of the garlic bulb off to expose the cloves. Rub the inside of the muffin tin with olive oil. Drizzle olive oil over the exposed end of the bulb and then rub the garlic head with the oil.
Place the garlic clove in the muffin tin and bake for 30 minutes.
The cooked garlic cloves easily squeeze out of their papery shells. Amazing flavor.
