Hmm… For 3 ourses I would start with a butternut soup (always easy), for the main i would probably do a roast because it can just be put in the oven and for pudding I am a fan of waffles or cupcakes or even just ice-cream and chocolate sauce… 

Since you want to use chicken breast, you could stuff it with a cream cheese mixture and bake it, always nice… For pastas, I make a roast butternut and chicken breast pasta with cheese sauce, actually what we had last night. Or a ham and pea pasta with a cream cheese sauce is also easy and very yummy…

Danie.pearce:  Also what my husband and I have started doing now is cooking Indian food, there are plenty of good blogs out there. The whole sharing concept behind it is amazing as a date night meal… I make samoosas for starters, a good curry for the main with rotis or we buy naan and some rice and then we do whatever we feel like for pudding… I haven’t ventured into indian puddings yet…

Danie.pearce:  Have you ever made risotto? It is actually not that hard, just a bit tedious and time consuming…but it’s so delicious and, in my opinion, more special and impressive than regular old pasta. I’m a vegetarian so I don’t incorporate chicken, but you easily could. My 3-course meal would be…

1. Homemade tomato bruschetta (tomatoes, garlic, fresh basil, salt/pepper, balsamic vinegar, olive oil) with toasted crostini brushed with olive oil and sprinkled with parmesan cheese

2. Salad with mixed greens, walnuts, dried cranberries, and goat cheese with a cinnamon-pear balsamic vinaigrette (I make this out of a cinnamon-pear-infused balsamic vinegar and olive oil)

3. Creamy mushroom risotto with white wine, porcini and portobello mushrooms, truffle oil, and parmesan

My fiance goes nuts over this. You could easily do a risotto with chicken instead. The internet is such an amazing recipe resource – just pick an easy recipe with good reviews and it’s pretty much fool-proof. Here’s one I found for risotto with chicken: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/food-network-kitchens/fontina-risotto-with-chicken-recipe.html

Or you could do my favourite mushroom risotto recipe and just add a sliced, grilled chicken breast on top of each serving: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/tyler-florence/mushroom-risotto-recipe.html

I made this pasta without the sausage and with seasoned grilled chicken breast and roasted red peppers instead and it was to die for! (I accidentally blended with spinach too but I think I actualy liked it better!) You could start with a nice light soup like italian wedding soup or a salad, then the pasta and chicken, then for dessert you could get some nice sorbet, or try making a chocolate mousse (mae in advance so it’s easy to juggle your courses).

For the salad, lately I’ve been eating a mix of argula and spinach with raspberries or blueberries, toasted slivered almonds, grated parmesan, and a balsamic vinagrette… it’s SO good!

How about:

First Course: A beatiful salad

Second Course: A roast chicken with potatoes

Dessert: Chocolate cake


This is a simple one, but, in my experience, always a hit. Also, everything is pretty simple and straighforward, but when home made is awesome!

I love chicken saltimboca, so I would use that as the main course.  For the first course, I’d so a really nice salad with a homemade dressing.  Or, if you can get fresh, garden grown tomatoes, fresh mozerella, and fresh basil, do a caprese salad.  That’s always a hit!  For dessert, I would do something do something with berries porobably.  Maybe a cobbler.
