Chicken in a Balsamic Pear Sauce

This was so good. My wife, Juilie received for Christmas, a subscription to Good Housekeeping and this was in the issue with Dr. Feel and his wahfe. (I will not like that door knob.) Anyway, I did serve couscous, but not the other stuff...I like my julienned veggies better.
Here's what you need:
  • 1T (+ 1t) EVOO
  • 4 sm. boneless, skinless chicken breasts (approx 1 lb.)
  • 2 Bosc pears, unpeeled, cored and 1/8th'ed
  • 1 cup Chicken Broth
  • 3T Balsamic
  • 2t Cornstarch
Here's how you do it:
  1. Heat EVOO in 12" skillet (med. heat), add chicken and cook until done. Transfer to plate
  2. a.Cook pear wedges 3-4 minutes in same skillet (or until lightly browned & tender) 2b. mix balsamic, chicken broth and cornstarch while pears are cooking
  3. Pour balsamic mixture in with pears, bring to a boil, reduce to medium heat for 1 minute (until it begins to thicken).
  4. Return chicken (and any run-off juices from plate) and heat through.

NOTE: cans of chicken broth are 14 oz. what do you do with the other 6 oz? well, you boil that (along with 2oz water) and use that for the couscous. (Honey, I forgot to add the water last night and that may have been why the couscous was a little bad! It was still an amazing dinner.)

Well there you go.....the good, the bad and the yummy!

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
