Honey Mustard Chicken Breasts

今年は何年振りか(調べてみると5年振りくらい)でシンガポールの家でのクリスマスを迎えます。ここ5年ほどはリゾートでクリスマスを迎えましたが、今年は久しぶりに家でクリスマス当日を迎え、クリスマスディナーにはお友達に来ていただくことになっているので、当日シェフの夫は少し緊張気味。(夫だけでなく、わたしも。。。)早めにターキーを買っておこうということになったのですが、なんてことでしょう、こんな時に限ってタングリンでいつも買っているターキーがなく、メーカー違いのずっと大きなものしかなく、ターキーを求めて探し回る羽目に(涙)。途中でわたしは家に帰り、夫はもう1箇所探しに行ってくれてメーカー違いの小さめのものをゲットしましたが、これまでいつももっとクリスマスに近づいてから買っても大丈夫だったのに。

We are going to have Christmas at home in Singapore for the first time in a long time.  For the last 5 years or so, we had Christmas at a beach resort, then my husband cooked Christmas dinner after we got back from the resort.  This year, we invited a few friends to the Christmas dinner, so my husband, who will be the chef on the day, is a little nervous (and so am I).   We decided to buy turkey early but we couldn’t find the right maker’s right size one where we usually buy and had to go to a few places to find it.  After a couple of places I came home and my husband continued the search and found one right size (but a different maker).  In the past we never had a problem even though we buy one closer to Christmas.

その上、とある事情でクリスマスツリーの下4分の1ほどのライトを壊されてしまい、買い物に出た時に代わりを買ったのですが上のライトの色と違っていて、夫がまた出かけて買い直し。

Another problem we had was Christmas tree lights.  When we were out we bought a set of Christmas tree lights because the lights on the lower 1/4 of our tree had failed, but unfortunately these were slightly the wrong colour and my husband had to go out again and search for them as well!  Eventually he got some that matched and the tree is looking better.

そんなこんなで、わたしも疲れましたが、夫はもっとお疲れです。

I’m feeling quite tired as well but my poor husband!

そんな中、作ってくれた今日の夕食は、チキンの胸肉のハニーマスタードソース。付け合わせは、さつまいも(オーストラリアの水分が多いタイプ)のマッシュとブロッコリー。前回作ってくれたときにソースが少し甘すぎたので、はちみつを減らしてもらいました。

So, without much rest, he had to start cooking dinner!  The dinner he made was Honey Mustard Chicken Breast.  He served it with mashed sweet potato and broccoli.  The last time when he made it I thought the sauce was a little too sweet so I asked him to reduce honey, it was better.
