Day 15: Random Chicken Meal

Today I had to work a double, so Allison decided to make an old meal we used to make every once and a while. We called it Random Chicken Meal (not because the chicken was random, but because we randomly decided the ingredients). It is basically parmesan noodles with bacon, chicken, and a medley of veggies sauteed in whatever sounds good that day. Let me tell you, the bacon with the noodles will blow your taste buds through the roof.

Allison also chose to use extra lemon herb oil from the other night with a lot of this dish. We ran out of olive oil, so this helped add flavor and make everything easy to cook!

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons of minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon of lemon herb oil
  • 1/4 cup of sweet white wine
  • 1 medium white onion, sliced
  • 1 package baby portobello, sliced
  • 1 1/2 cup of baby spinach
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon of basil, sliced

Directions

  1. Add the garlic, lemon herb oil, white wine, and salt and pepper into a large skillet, bring to a simmer. Add the onions and sweat them until they are soft.
  2. Once the onions are soft, then add the mushrooms. Continue to simmer.
  3. Then add the baby spinach, sautee until soft. Serve!

Just as a note, I have been known to make these veggies with sherry vinegar instead of using the lemon herb oil and white wine. That tastes pretty delicious also!

Pasta Roni Parmesan Cheese

This is a pasta dish that is made straight out of the box, but we make a few changes to make it even better!

Ingredients

  • 1 box of Pasta Roni Parmesan Cheese pasta, plus ingredients on the back of the box (this includes margarine, water and milk.)
  • 4 strips of bacon, cooked
  • 1 teaspoon fresh chopped parsley

Directions

  1. Prepare the pasta according to the instructions on the box.
  2. Add the bacon and parsley at the same time as you add the pasta and the seasoning mix.
  3. Enjoy!

Chicken

Ingredients

  • Boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 3 tablespoons lemon herb oil
  • Salt and pepper

Directions

  1. Put the garlic, salt, pepper and lemon herb sauce on the chicken, put in a baking dish and bake for about 30 minutes at 450 degrees. Easy enough!
  2. In the past, when making chicken for this dish, we have breaded it and pan fried it.

How was it?

We really love this dish! It is pretty cheap, and if done in tandem, very easy to make. Unfortunately, I was working all day, so Allison was left to do it alone. Allison also chose to have shrimp marinated in lemon herb oil and mix them in with her vegetables instead of having chicken. We also had some garlic bread to go with this.
