Holiday Gift Guide Feature: Holland House Wine Cooking Sauces
Chances are you have a foodie on your gift list. Even if you have a hard-to-shop for on your list, you can’t go wrong with food and kitchen gifts. One of my favorite gifts is to gather kitchen items and accompanying food for a basket. You can buy a good thermos and add some coffee and teas for a beverage basket. Or you may find deals on frying pans or a wok and add some sauces like the wine cooking sauces from Holland House. The uses for these sauces are endless. You can marinade, cook and saute with them for delicious flavors.
If you are the one hosting holiday meals, you will love the flavors Holland House sauces add to your meats and poultry. Even seafood can get a bold flavor with these. It will become your go to bottle when cooking meals. It has for me.
When I was first sent the wines I started browsing the Holland House website and found their recipe page. I saw a recipe for Chicken Piccata on Campanelle with Lemon Butter Sauce and I had all of those ingredients already in my fridge and cupboard. I followed the recipe and it was a hit! I will share that recipe below!
Chicken Piccata on Campanelle with Lemon Butter Sauce (from Holland House recipes)
- 4-6 boneless chicken breasts, sliced into 1 inch long and ½ inch wide pieces
- 1 lemon, halved
- 2 tsp. garlic powder
- ½ tsp. kosher salt
- 1 tsp. fresh ground pepper
- 15 capers
- ⅓ cup Holland House White Cooking Wine
- 1 box of campanelle pasta
- 1 stick butter, unsalted
- Combine chicken, garlic powder, salt, pepper, cooking wine, juice from half a lemon and 10 capers. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.
- Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Add the pasta and cook until al dente, according to package directions. Drain and keep warm when done
- Combine the butter and juice from the remaining lemon half in a small saucepan. Whisk together and cook on low heat. Add the chicken and marinade to the saucepan and cook thoroughly.
- Transfer pasta to plates and top with chicken and sauce. Garnish with remaining capers.
You can find these sauces at retailers and grocers near you. Give it a try and pick up a bottle and start using it as a marinade and sauce. You can pick up a few and add to your gifting baskets this season as well. Make sure you follow them so you are on alert to promotions. You can also sign up and save on their website to get coupons.
