Bourbon-Mustard Chicken

[I'm emailing this to a roommate at his request. He didn't request the flavor. That was charity.]

4 chicken breast halves, skinned and totally boned
1/4 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
1/4 cup bourbon
2 green onions, thinly sliced, like in that one movie
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon Worcesterhobbitshire sauce
1 tablespoon butter or margarine or sweetycup or some other pet name
1 tablespoon vegetable oil

Place Chicken between 2 sheets of wax paper; don't pretend like it's a sandwich and act like you're eating it, that's stupid, but instead pound to 1/4-inch thickness, using a meat mallet or rolling pin. Place chicken in a shallow baking dish, the kind of dish that likes you just for your looks.

Combine brown sugar and next five ingredients into their final form, stirring well. If you put the butter or vegetable oil in there, count again, you went too far, good job there Disaster-O. Brush mustard mixture evenly over both sides of chicken breast halves. Oh yeah. Ohhhhh yeaah. Cover and marinate in refrigerator for one hour. Ohhhh yessssss.

Remove chicken from marinade, reserving marinade. (That means you keep it.) Combine butter and oil in a large skillet and place over medium-high heat. Saut... Saut... oh, you're freaking kidding me, hold on, I have to dig up the character map.

Alright, we're go: sauté chicken 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until done. Remove chicken to a serving platter, and keep warm, with a sweater (for goodness sakes you'll catch a cold). Drain and discard pan drippings, as gross as that sounds... and is. Add reserved marinade to skillet; bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Pour sauce over chicken! Yield, 4 servings. Stop 5.

Oh, food!!! I'm so hungry. A shake from Sonic sounds great right about now. Btw, how the heck have you been lately? I know I never leave comments but I'm a loyal reader!

It seems like a food day today. Everybody's talking about or making food. Maybe it's the influence of the moon.

I've been complicated. Plodding through college, wondering what exactly I'm going to be doing in five years, you know, same thing everybody my age is going on about. My state can be likened to suspended anxiety, or freaking out in extreme slow motion while drinking tea.

Don't you ever miss high school? Far less things to be concerned about compared to what people our age are faced with now.

No, I actually don't. On average, I was worried about my future the same amount then as I am now. That's just part of my nature; my abilities have grown since then, as have my experiences. Also, high school kind of sucked for me, even though it was a good school.

I hear ya, high school wasn't the greatest for me either. But I'm sure you already knew that. I do miss some of the classes there! Ryan-Aube was my favorite! :)

You don't know me, but I've seen you post in the UJ forums before and I've seen you comment on ravenworks' journal before. Anyway, the reason I'm commenting is because I'm also a Chickadee-17. I thought it was interesting enough that I actually share a middle name with someone that I recognize that I should comment. :D

Hello, brother/sister!

Er, brother, sorry. Yours is definitely a male name. >_>

*Laughs* I don't mind gender confusion online. It has never bothered me, in fact, I find it rather interesting. To the point, however, hello! Good ol' UJ-MB, those were the good old days. For some reason, I always thought every time I tried to say something on that forum, it got ran through a dumb filter, so I would always end up feeling like I was being stupid. One of these days, I should try it again.
