It’s a brand new year and Award Season has begun!!!! The 75th Golden Globes will kick it off and what better way to celebrate it than with a bit of bubbly… but no one said it had to be confined to your glass!
KitchAnnette Champagne Chicken Divinos
Champagne Chicken is a dish that has a lot of meaning for me. When I was growing up in the Bronx, we often went to Manhattan for dinner at gorgeous restaurants. One we frequented regularly was called Divino’s. It was on Second Avenue and had to most delicious food.
I don’t know how I didn’t become a little chubby ball because what I ate was always the same – and note I was about 8 – 12 years old at the time! Where’d I put it all??!! Drat the adult metabolism. Ha!
KitchAnnette Champagne Chicken Setting
Appetizer of melon and prosciutto followed by a half order of Fettuccine Alfredo, then… yes, you guessed it, CHAMPAGNE CHICKEN! Oh yeah, then fresh berries for dessert. When we got to the car, my sisters and I always bemoaned how full we were yet we always repeated our overeating. And did I mention we were permitted to order white wine spritzers? This was the ’70’s and as long as parents were OK with it, they would give a little wine to a kid. Ha!
KitchAnnette Champagne Chicken Ingredients
Divino’s has been closed a few years but my father helped me do a good job at capturing this delightful dish. It’s glamorous and easy to prepare, two of my favorite things in the kitchen. Basic ingredients, a little bubbly, and if you want to jazz it up a bit more, sprinkle the plated dish with EDIBLE gold glitter/dust!

What could be more elegant and perfect for the Golden Globes! This year Seth Meyers is hosting. It’s going to be a challenge to dance around all the topical issues in a comedic way, but he’s more than up to the task and will do a fabulous job.
I’ve been doing a good job seeing many of the movies and shows nominated, especially with the Oscar nominations being announced on January 23rd.
Enjoy the champagne chicken and raise a glass to you!! It’s WONDERFUL! Enjoy the show!
KitchAnnette Champagne Chicken AZCheers!!
