If you’ve been following this blog for any length of time, you’ll know that I love my faith, family, friends, and photography … but one more thing that is right up there is FOOD … oh my word I love food!! So occasionally, I will be posting Foodie Fridays here on the blog. If you enjoy food half as much as I do, you’re sure to like these posts. Now, I should warn you, I am first a recipe follower … then a recipe tweeker … but I am by no means talented enough to come up with recipes on my own! I will, whenever possible, post a link to the recipes I use so you can try them out too! That being said … on to the first of many Foodie Fridays! (which will alternate with Family Fridays … until I find another F word that I want to blog about, in which case we might just have a rotating schedule … but I digress …)
I now give you … Chicken Paillard on Baby Greens …
This is from Rachael Ray’s book 30 Minute Meals 2. I am a super busy woman (aren’t we all) and as I mentioned here, I have ways to keep it all together. Finding yummy meals I can make quickly is one of them. This chicken was AH-mazing! Delicious, moist, flavorful, and quick! You can find the recipe here. The only tweeking I did was that I used only baby arugula for the greens, and because arugula can be a little peppery, and because I just bought this super yummy balsamic fig vinegar from this place and was dying to use it … I threw a little drizzle on the greens with olive oil and tossed them before placing them on the gravy base. It was delicious I tell you! And in the recipe book, she suggests her Roquefort, Pear, & Walnut toasts alongside or as an appetizer. YUM! Unfortunately, I don’t have a picture of these because they were gobbled up too fast. They are pretty enough to be served to guests and so easy to make, you can do it on a weeknight (like I did).
Bon Appetit lovelies!
