"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Ingredients:  
Ingredients:  
1 lb of chicken cutlets (sliced thin – one thick skinless chicken cutlet can generally be sliced into 3 thin pieces)
Feta Cheese or Goat Cheese (I use the herbed Feta)
Fresh ground pepper
Cooking sherry
Butter

Directions:
Directions:
Prepare Chicken:
1) If not thin sliced, take breast and cut in thin pieces
2) Lay on a cutting board covered with wax paper.
3) Spread cheese heavily over the chicken breast.
4) Sprinkle fresh ground pepper over the chicken breast.
5) Cover the breast with wax paper and pound in the cheese

Cook Chicken:
1) Melt butter in a frying pan on medium high.
2) Place chicken in frying pan cheese side down.
3) Keep a close eye on the cooking breast, as it starts to turn white (cooked) you will need to flip it over to complete the process. Use a spatula so that you don’t loose a lot of the cheese in the pan. My family likes the cheese browned. So I leave it in the frying pan a little longer.
4) Place cooked pieces on platter and keep warm. I put the platter in the oven (set at warm.) Make sure the plate in oven proof.

Sherry Sauce:
1) When all the pieces of chicken are cooked, take ½ cup (or more if needed) of cooking sherry and pour into the frying pan. Cook the wine with the drippings from the chicken until the liquid is reduced a little (about 1/3.)
2) Pour over chicken and serve immediately.
