Oh let’s see…what can we make today? It’s 5:40 and Kevin will be home in about 25 minutes. I hate when I don’t have a game plan, but sometimes that ends up being my finest meals. I’m hoping tonight will be that way. Here’s some “Monday Lovin’ from Your Oven”:
Simple Chicken Courden Bleu (kind of?) with Rice and Green Beans
Alright so this is easy-peasy. I make this recipe for 2, but you can make it for however many people are at dinner! Get your oven groovin’ at a nice 350.
I take boneless, skinless chicken breasts and filet them (cut them in half, except the one side), and then pound them out a tiny bit. (OR you could just pound them out. your call.) Next, I add some sliced deli ham that we happen to have for lunches. (I generally do 2 to 3 slices per chicken breast- put it on one side of the chicken) I top that with cheese- baby swiss works great, but we didn’t have that tonight, so I’m using a sliced mottz/provolone blend. 1 and 1/2 slices per piece of chicken. Then I fold the top half over the chicken and coat it. To coat the top, mix 2 squirts mayo with 1 squirt dijon mustard. Very scientific. Mix that up with a fork or a spoon and divide it up among your chicken in a semi thin layer. Then, pop those lovely chickies into the oven for 25 minutes.
While those are going, I make the rice and finally the beans. This part is nothing special- I follow the directions given to me. When I’m feeling fancy (as I am tonight), I spruce up the rice at the end with a few spoonfuls of the dijon/majo mixture. It adds a little creaminess and flavor pop to the otherwise pretty boring rice.
And that’s it. Sorry this is a shortie today, but in all honesty…I’m typing this while the above dinner is cooking, and figured..why not share?
