Easy, Yet Delicious Dinner

Thursday, July 07, 2011

Raise your hand if you love meals that take hardly any effort or time to make.

Yup, my hand is totally raised right now. 

If you are still reading, then I am assuming that you can relate. There are two parts to this love fest. First up, garlic chicken.
  • 2 teaspoons crushed garlic
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. Warm the garlic and olive oil to blend the flavors. In a separate dish, combine the bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese. Dip the chicken breasts in the olive oil and garlic mixture, then into the bread crumb mixture. Place in a shallow baking dish.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes, until no longer pink and juices run clear.
This is definitely delicious, but since I LOVE playing around with spices I would add some random flavors to cater to your individual taste buds. Feel free to experiment to your heart’s content.

Now let me introduce you to a Pasta Salad that makes Suddenly Salad look like manual labor.
  • 8 ounces uncooked rotini pasta
  • 1 avocado - peeled, pitted and diced
  • 1 large tomato, diced
  • 1/2 cup Ranch dressing
  • 2 tablespoons crumbled cooked bacon
  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes, until al dente. Drain, and rinse under cold running water to cool.
  2. In a bowl, gently toss together pasta, avocado, tomato, dressing, and bacon. Chill until ready to serve.
From this moment on this salad will be my go-to food whenever I need to contribute a salad at a ward function, funeral, barbeque, etcetera. It is so gooooooooood.
