Sometimes its the most obvious thing to make, yet you never make it. Take for example, chicken parmesan. Its super easy, quick and can be made healthy, so when I saw Chicken Parmesan on The Pioneer Woman Cooks site, I decided it was now or never!
I started with 3 big chicken breasts and cut them in half horizontally. Place 3 chicken breasts at a time into a big ziploc bag and pound the heck out of it until its thin. Repeat with the remaining chicken.
In a separate dish, add flour seasoned with salt and pepper and dredge each chicken breast in the flour. In a large skillet, melt 1 TB butter or olive oil and cook each side for about 2-3 minutes per side. Remove from skillet.
In the same skillet, I added 2 cloves chopped garlic, 1 shallot chopped and sauteed for a few minutes. Then I added 1 28 oz. can of crushed tomatoes and added salt, pepper and dried oregano.
Cook the sauce for about 10 minutes, then place the chicken back into the sauce. Cover each chicken slice with parmesan cheese and place a top over the skillet so the cheese will melt.
Serve over angel hair pasta.
Unusual, but great breakfast
Cooking quinoa is like cooking rice. You use 1 part grain vs. 2 parts water. I made a bunch so I would have leftovers on hand.
In my bowl I had 1 cup quinoa, 1/2 ounce of feta cheese and 1 Pam fried egg. Chop up the cooked egg, and add the rest of the ingredients. When I got to work, I just heated it up for a minute. It was really good! You could add turkey bacon, or turkey sausage, splash of hot sauce, add some veggies. This HUGE bowl was 350 calories. It kept me full until lunch!
