Chicken Verona & Vodka Sauce

Find it here also...

Monday Meal Plan #28


Some old favorites revisited...

Having made the Chicken Verona for a catering several years ago, it became a favorite! Great served with a dipping sauce or on its own as an entree with Crash potatoes & veggie of choice.

The Vodka Sauce adds a finishing touch to  Shrimp/Andouille Tower! Sauté grit cakes or polenta cakes until golden,
On a bed of spinach, place one cake, top with sautéed shrimp (seasoned with Old Bay) & cooked slices of andouille. Repeat layers of grit cakes, shrimp & sausage. Spoon vodka sauce over & garnish with fresh snipped chives.
