Well fun or no fun, it's certainly prepared me to make easy dishes that I can crank out on Sundays and enjoy for dinner and/or lunches all week long. This system works for me because I don't usually become bored with the same dish every day. I recognize that I'm a rare breed though, because most people on the fifth day of same dish would say something like, "Oh goody! I get to have ____ again!" This is one time where being blah actually ends up being a time saver folks. Consider it. But only if you're single like me. If you're cooking for significant others or kids, I have a feeling their faces wouldn't even fake a smile on day three of the weekly dish.
Anyhow, I ended up making this chicken on a Monday night because Sunday had run away from me. It's so easy that you will have the patience to cook it on a manic Monday. Trust me, you don't need a complicated recipe or long ingredient list to satisfy your palate.
Q&E Chicken With Garlic & White Wine
(stay tuned for the yummy zucchini recipe shown with it)
4 tsp of crushed garlic paste (organic jarred or in tube)
8 boneless, skinless chicken breast steaks
4 splashes of white wine
Generously grease a large skillet with olive oil and put over medium heat.
Lay out the breast steaks, painting each side with crushed garlic paste to taste. I like garlic, so I lay it on.
Add 4 breast steaks to the skillet, turning over every 5 minutes until cooked through.
Add a splash of white wine & sea salt **Be careful! Wine has alcohol (duh) and will bubble up when added to hot oil and pan.
Turn the chicken over in the bubbling wine, making sure to coat.
Simmer a couple minutes to incorporate and remove.
Repeat the process with the other 4 steaks.
The chicken turned out extremely tender and flavorful; you would have never guessed it was a haphazard attempt at using whatever was in the refrigerator. You CAN make dinner quick, easy, cheap and yummy! I'll make it a habit to now post many Q&E recipes for all you working stiffs out there. Especially you Dream Man. What do you mean you can't cook, Dream Man? You just have to practice.
