Baked Tuscan Chicken


The Boat Galley
By Carolyn Shearlock

Our first company!  Dave and I were so excited to welcome our friends Tony and Vicky aboard for a week in Mexico.  Years before, we’d hatched the idea for our first charter when spending a weekend aboard their boat on Kentucky Lake.  One thing had led to another and now we were cruising full time and they were contemplating doing the same.

We wanted to show them just how magical this life could be from the moment they stepped on board.  The plan was to pick them up at the airport and immediately head to a nearby anchorage in time for dinner and sunset.

After anchoring, we had a “welcome aboard” glass of wine while dinner was in the oven.  I’d had done the prep work the day before – Baked Tuscan Chicken is a wonderful make-ahead meal for guests, needing virtually no last-minute attention.  Just as we finished eating, the sun set and turned the sky a fiery mix of crimson and orange.  We continued to sit on deck as darkness fell and the stars came out.

Later, as we all headed to bed, Vicky turned to me and said, “This is wonderful.”  I couldn’t have said it better.
