Smothered Chicken

When Brian is gone, I try to go for some easy meals that don't come out of a bag. This one is PERFECT! I found some really cute kids to showcase the food. See the smiles? that's how I know this is a winner, the kids ate it!

Smothered Chicken

Quickfrozen, or fresh chicken breasts
one onion
2 strips of bacon
cheddar cheese
frozen green beans
garlic (fresh or dried)
sea salt

  • Take chicken breasts and place in a pan with Olive Oil. Season them with salt, pepper, paprika, and garlic (to taste, we like alot of garlic). Cook until they are no longer pink in the middle.
  • Take the chicken out of the pan and put in two slices of bacon. cook.
  • take bacon out of pan and cut into small pieces.
  • place the sliced onion in the pan with butter. Reseason with garlic, paprika, sea salt and pepper. cook until translucent.
  • add frozen green beans, and bacon back to pan. cook till tender
  • add sliced chicken back to pan and cover with cheese.
I served it with spinach, mashed potates with skins on and sliced apples.

Blessed with Grace

This looks easy, which would be enough to convince me to give it a try. But those smiles! That's drives it home!

You served this with spinach and they are STILL smiling?!? You're powers of child-rearing are clearly vast indeed.

Looks like another good recipe Jenn. I'll hafta try this out!

Jennifer said...

muahaha, John has become convinced thru Popeye that Spinach really will grow his muscles. So he will eat it, flex, and evaluate "the gun show"
