I have pondered over this idea for a chicken recipe for a couple of days. I called it elegant because it looks like it could be served at a dinner party. I complemented with garlic mashed potatoes and corn. At a dinner party I would make asparagus or in season vegetable and of course an amazing dessert afterwards.
