Chicken Bryan Carrabba’s Copycat recipe is juicy chicken with a rich lemon butter sauce, sun-dried tomatoes, creamy goat cheese and fresh basil. Perfect!
If there is one restaurant that I torture my husband with, it’s Carrabba’s. Its not that he doesn’t love the food as much as I do (he’s a huge Chicken Bryan fan), its that every single time he asks “Where do you want to go out to eat?” I immediately answer the same way each and every time.. Carrabba’s.
I cant help it, I have an addiction to Alfredo sauce and free bread. It’s a disease, I’m working through it …
Now this ever quick plea for Pasta Weesie worked like a charm in the early years of our relationship (we can call it our courtship but it breaks down to when things were all shiny and new) but now that we have some years behind us, my request more times than not falls on deaf ears. I can’t blame him, I have made that man walk though those doors more times than people who actually work there.
But Big Scary Mike is the best of the best when it comes to husbands and every so often, he surprises me and we turn left instead of right and YAY!!! we have baskets of delicious carby goodness and packets of real butter for as far as the knife can reach. So on these field trips, as I am staggering head first into a carb coma, he is happy and content ordering HIS favorite dish which is Chicken Bryan. Now I have watched him order this dinner a thousand times and have never once even thought about trying it… why would I? I have pasta… and alfredo sauce (no mushrooms, please) and garlic shrimp. My life is good, my life is complete, I am happy in my choice of husbands.
Fast forward to last week when my brain is about to explode because I have NO IDEA of what to make for dinner… none.. blank.. do you ever get that? It’s horribly frustrating and for a food blogger… well, slightly embarrassing. Way to go, Food Girl.
Then, out of no where it came to me … “Honey? What’s Chicken Bryan and would I like it???” I will spare you his response.. it wasn’t all together kind .. apparently I was supposed to be paying attention to this amazing dish at some point in the past ten years… But I moved forward and pulled up their menu and thought .. I can do that!! So here you are .. Carrabba’s Copycat Chicken Bryan. It’s juicy chicken with a rich lemon butter sauce that perfectly complements its garnish of sun-dried tomatoes, creamy goat cheese and fresh basil.
Seriously good yums going on here!!
And how did this fly with Mike, you ask? And I quote “I’ll be honest, I was really nervous about this… your ‘experimental (insert ethnicity here) nights’ have not always treated me well… Baby, you nailed this one though!”
I’m considering having that compliment tattooed somewhere on me but that’s still under consideration.. haha
Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think… or just say Hi! I love hearing from you!!
