Wobbly Chicken Tequila Fettucine

Wobbly Chicken Tequila Fettucine
Staff Writer

"I dont go out with my single friends — not at all — because I never have a good time, never have fun. We go to a club, a guy comes over: 'Hey, can I buy you a drink?' They're like, 'No, she's married.' I'm like, 'Yeah, I'm married, but I'm thirsty. Why don't you shut the hell up and let me have a free drink?'"

Directions

In a saucepan over medium heat, add 2 tablespoons of butter, garlic, cilantro, and jalapeño. Sauté for 3 minutes.

Chicken Shopping Tip

Buy whole chickens and ask the butcher to quarter them for you. You will save an average of $5 per pound, or more.

Chicken Cooking Tip

Allow meat to rest for at least ten minutes before slicing into it; otherwise, the juices will leak out.
