A Romantic Night In

By John Smith | This page by Tess Allen

Recruit your spouse as an associate chef, don some toques and novelty aprons and share the joys of cooking. Light a candle, dim the lights and put on your favorite music to set the mood, and enjoy the romantic zest of a home-cooked meal for two - a meal that, with help from the following recipes, will taste like it was prepared by gourmets.


Eating a fancy meal can be indulgent, romantic and relaxing. But finding a good restaurant, getting reservations, picking the perfect meal and matching it with the best wine can be stressful - not to mention the stress it puts on your wallet. And it's difficult to have an intimate conversation with a loved one in a crowded, noisy hotspot.

But don't let these things rain on your soufflé - you can recreate the pleasure of eating out in the comfort of your own home. Here are three chicken recipes that offer simple, affordable ingredients you and your cooking partner can transform into scrumptious meals.
