But last Thursday was one of the craziest days I have had in a long time. Lots of running around. Luckily, I had a game plan. So I quickly reply, "Chicken." And do you know what I heard on the other end of the phone?
What is it about chicken that automatically makes us think "bor-ing?" I think it's because a lot of us have had our fair share of overcooked and under-seasoned chicken. But I'm going to let you in on a little secret: perfectly moist and perfectly seasoned chicken is quite easy. I use my Go-To Oven Roasted Chicken Breasts recipe all the time, like last Thursday.
I had anticipated a crazy day so I prepped the chicken breasts that morning. When I came home, I took them out of the fridge, preheated the oven, and less than an hour later I had dinner on the table. I served my chicken over a bed of gluten free angel hair pasta (I recommend this brand) with garlic, olive oil, red pepper flakes, and sauteed broccoli. All topped with a little Parmesan cheese.
And do you know what Patrick said? "When you said chicken for dinner, I forgot that you make chicken like this." You know what? I think I'll keep him :)
