Bombshell Cooking: Elizabeth Taylor’s Recipe for Chicken Steamed In Wine

Passionista Principle: “BIG girls need BIG diamonds.” ~Elizabeth Taylor
I have been thoroughly enjoying our “Bombshell Cooking” feature here on The Passionista Playbook Blog TV. So far we’ve shared the favorite recipes of larger than life divas such as Josephine Baker, Marilyn Monroe, Diana Ross, Michelle Obama and Pam Grier.

It is with love and reverence that I pass on a favorite recipe of movie star Dame Elizabeth Taylor upon news of her passing. I didn’t realize that I’ve only seen one Elizabeth Taylor movie, “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf.” I think I was so annoyed at her “Cleopatra” that I never looked deeper into her legendary career. Sometime soon thanks to Netflix I plan to have a mini Elizabeth Taylor Film Festival in my living room.

As you know from my Orange Vodka Barbecue Chicken recipe, I love cooking with alcohol. I found this  Elizabeth Taylor recipe that already has the wine built in so I don’t even need to consult Gary Vaynerchuk this time.

Elizabeth Taylor’s Chicken Steamed In Wine recipe comes from posted by Lennie of the blog Eat, Write, Create. Thanks Lennie!
