Chicken with Blue Cheese and Grapes

 A simple chicken dish made with red grapes, tangy blue cheese, toasted walnut all in a sweet wine (mead) sauce!

 Chicken gets all dressed up!  This dish pairs chicken with sweet alchohol, grapes, walnuts and tangy blue cheese!     I tried mead only twice in my life.  The first time was in college.  My friend made it in his basement.  He was incredibly proud of his alcoholic honey creation, he truly thought it was the best thing ever.  I, on the other hand, was not impressed.  I’d rather drink rubbing alcohol than consume what he served!  Good … Continue reading →
