Okay so last night I was going to skip the whole dinner thing and cook something quick and then I remembered that I would be posting what we ate, soooo I cooked. Nothing fancy mind you I made it up as I went along but I wrote down what I put in it.
I am thankful to have a freezer full of chicken breast from Quail Cove Farms. I did not however have any defrosted, so I soaked the packs in hot water until I could at least slice through them. Along the way on this journey my goal is to be prepared and have what I need at the very least thawed ahead of time.
So I don’t really have a name for this but I will call it – Sauteed Chicken and Sweet Peppers
4 Chicken Breasts sliced and cut to about 1 inch pieces.
6 Sweet Peppers (I bought these at Costco so I have a rather large bag so you have seen these a lot and probably will for the rest of the week.
1/3 C Sweet Onion
4 Cloves Garlic
1/4 C Worcestershire Sauce
So basically I sauteed the chicken in about 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil until cooked through, in a separate pan I sauteed the Sweet Peppers, Onions and Garlic in Olive Oil for about 3-4 minutes then tossed it in with the fully cooked through chicken and added the spices (I just put in what seemed good to me, approx 1t each). I stirred and then added the salt, pepper and Worcestershire Sauce tossed for a few minutes and it was done. I probably could have cooked the chicken a little less before I combined it with the veggies.
I made a side of Cream Cheese Mashed Potatoes to go with this
8 Large Potatoes
2-3 oz Cream Cheese
1/4-1/2 C butter
Salt and Pepper
Next time I will sauteed up some extra onions and finely chopped peppers to a nice golden brown and throw those in with the potatoes as I had some left over and tried them and oh my was that delicious.
So that was my meal for last night and no complaints so I happy with that.
