Dinner Inspiration Needed [Aug. 23rd, 2007|04:24 pm]
[Current Mood |curiouscurious]

I have a few ingredients here and the meat I have is boneless skinless chicken breast pieces. I do best if it isn't dry and have an awesome oven, great pans, extensive spices, and a few basics like butter, some olive oil, ect, and a few frozen veggies but nothing fresh just yet (we are just setting up the house). Any suggestions on what I can make? I'm looking to add moisture and flavor, but it has to be reasonably healthy.

I like this recipe. I don't use their recipe for green beans. What I often will do is toss in some green beans into the chicken al limone and then combine with a bit of rotini.

That looks yummy, but alas, no white wine. I do have an entire shrub of fresh rosemary in the yard. Any ideas for that?

You can skip the white wine to be honest. I did yesterday.
You can heat the olive oil slowly and add the rosemary to infuse the olive oil. then saute cut up chicken. Add a bit of salt and pepper. Combine with a bit of pasta or eat as is.
steam your veggies, add a bit of lemon juice and call it good.

quick and easy

Cook 2 cups of rice about 3/4 of the way cooked(your choice of type)
start baking chicken in a pan with some water while the rice cooks

remove chicken from baking pan
pour rice in the baking pan
pour cream of chicken soup over the chicken and rice

bake until everything is done, you can add peas to the rice when you put it in the pan. if it starts to dry add a little water and cover to finish baking.

you do have to find the low fat stuff and count the carbs and starch in your rice and soup.

I have heard of someone using a low fat, low sodium chicken broth instead of the soup also.

I hope that t least gives you something to work with

I would just give it a quick rub with some olive oil; a dash or two of your favorite spices and put the chicken under the broiler. The trick with chicken being too dry is not to over cook it. (I tend to Iron Chef things a lot).
