Oh my goodness!
I started this post and planned it to be very simple and more about the pictures. The first draft ended up being about nutrition and Italian family dinners and me peeping into windows during my trip to Italy.
Tonight I had a produce drawer full of things I needed to use, thawed chicken breast and thirty minutes.
So here is what we ended up with for dinner:
I cut up some tomatoes and tossed them in olive oil.
I put them onto a baking sheet and salt and peppered them.
I added fresh basil leaves, some garlic powder and roasted them in the oven.
Ten minutes before taking them out I crumbled blue cheese on top.
While the tomatoes were roasting, I browned cut chicken breast, onions and garlic.
After the chicken was almost cooked through I added this ready made sauce and two large cans of sliced mushrooms.
I reduced the heat and covered.
While the chicken was doing it's thing, I sautéed two big bags of spinach and a half bag of kale.
I added salt, pepper and squeezed the juice of one lemon while cooking.
(Sometimes I drizzle balsamic vinegar)
I used my cast iron frying pan.
If you do not have at least one cast iron skillet, go get you one.
They are wonderful to cook in and actually add minerals to your food.
(I have had low iron and using cast iron has helped. )
I always struggle to get all of my greens into the skillet at first, but in the end they reduce so far down
I end up wishing I had another bag.
I forgot to take a picture of everything together on a plate, but dinner was delicious
quick and easy!
