Chili Pepper Olive Oil

Looking for a few last minute Christmas gifts? Does your recipient like to eat or cook? (Who doesn't like to eat!)  If so, here is an idea that is quick, easy and sure to please!

I did a lot of reading online before attempting this and have used a number of techniques from all over to make this spicy and attractive oil.Start with a glass bottle of oil...I used olive, but you can use pretty much any cooking oil you like, just not extra virgin olive oil as the heat and chili will destroy subtle flavours. Might as well save your cash in this case and get regular olive oil.

Chicken with Wine and Mushrooms

A quick and easy week night dinner. Chicken breasts are sauteed in a tangy wine and butter sauce and tossed with sauteed mushrooms. Serve over mashed potatoes with the side veg of your choice!

This recipe will serve two but you can scale it to serve as many as you like!
