I came across this recipe on Epicurious while looking for an easy and quick chicken dinner. This was tasty and very easy to put together. The only thing I would do differently the next time I make this is dredge the chicken in some flour before putting it into the pan. I didn’t have basil, as the recipe called for and used whatever I had in the fridge. The mix of parsley, mint and tarragon paired nicely with the chicken and sun-dried tomatoes. If you’re looking for an easy chicken dinner, look no further!
In my last post, I mentioned a chili we had with our cornbread. Well, here it is! 🙂
I love this chili! It’s a nice switch up from your beef chili. I always like to include sausages or ham steak (plus bone for flavor) in my pot of chili. I find it gives it texture than just plain old ground meat. Leftovers are fabulous in nachos or chili macs. I used mine for nachos. Sorry! Didn’t get a chance to photograph it. Chris got too hungry and couldn’t wait. 😉
I’m having one of those real lazy days where I want something on the dinner table without having to put a lot of effort into it, or shopping for that matter. I know, I’m lazy but don’t we all have those days? I don’t want to order take-outs either —ick! After all the eating out, take-out is the last
thing I need.
I generally don’t care for cream in my pasta dish, mainly because it’s too rich and heavy. However, I had some cream I needed to use up so I decided to add it to my pasta. It was divine! You can’t even tell there’s cream in it. For a pasta dish with cream, it was rather light. So if you’re worried about this dish being too rich and heavy, don’t be!
I love a good stir-fry at home. What’s not to love? Veggies, pieces of meat, quick, and it doesn’t weigh you down after eating. I love veggies of all kind but I prefer mine cooked rather than consuming it raw, like a salad. The only drawback about making stir-fry at home is all that spattering. Ugh! I hate getting spattered. I know there are spatter guards out there but I’d rather not add more dishes to wash. Yes, I’m lazy too, in case you haven’t picked up on that.
I used white chicken meat here, but feel free to use chicken thigh meat if that’s what you’re into. This dish is still delicious the next day so your lunch is covered. 🙂 Have a great Tuesday!
