The hubby continues to do well post GERD surgery which is just wonderful. Each week I add in more foods to his diet but he is still restricted to some degree. The other night I was able to make him chicken for the first time. It had to be “well cooked” which is just a sad way to serve chicken so I thought about that a bit and decided that if I braised it the meat would be nice and tender. A braised chicken recipe is a wonderful way to add flavor and make chicken breasts less dry.

How Was the Braised Chicken Recipe?

Really quite tasty. It was so very tender which was just what I needed to comply with his eating restrictions. It pretty much melted in the mouth. The honey mustard sauce was delightful on the cheesey grits (I love grits.) I made roasted beets for him and I had broccoli. He can’t have broccoli or cauliflower yet. All in all a successful recipe for post GERD surgery needs. I am sure I could make this with tofu since he liked the tofu picatta I made for him so much. The chicken was from my Perdue Farms order and was flavorful and delicious.
