My Greek Inspired Chicken Dinner.

19 Mar

Tonight’s dinner was my version of a Greek inspired dish. It was simple and full of flavor. I simply took 2 chicken breast and sliced them so that they were about 1/4 inch thick. Then I lightly seasoned the chicken. You can use your favorite seasonings. I used a combination of black pepper, paprika and sea salt. I also added a little of the Wegmans Basting Oil. I actually used this basting oil for almost all of my dishes.

I then sautéed it in extra virgin olive oil. I cooked the chicken for 5 minutes each side until it was golden.

I then wrapped it aluminum foil and put it in a 400 degree oven and let it cook for another 10 minutes. While the chicken was cooking in the oven, I threw in the naan bread. Note, I literally threw it in the oven directly on the racks and let it stay for 3-5 minutes until it was golden brown.

The chicken and naan were cut and placed on a platter that included cucumbers, brushetta, feta cheese, pesto and grapes. I also served a side of Kashi 7 Whole Grain Pilaf. The combination was a flavorful and enticing to the tastebuds.

Kashi 7 Whole Grain Pilaf: A Whole New Way To Enjoy Whole Grains

19 Mar

Today I had a pleasant culinary surprise. I tried this Kashi 7 Whole Grain Pilaf and it was delicious. I was nervous about it being dry and rock hard. However, it was quite tasty. Now, I did boil it in chicken broth and I also added a teaspoon of the Wegman’s garlic parmesan cheese finishing butter. So, I definitely think doing those things added flavor. I also cooked it for 30 minutes instead of the recommended 25. It ended up being a tasty side dish and a nice healthy alternative to white rice and pasta.
