Now that I'm back home to my full size range I am in the mood to cookI assure you this doesn't happen often! Even with my new-found motivation I am still all about quick and easy meals.
Oh! Attempting to finally modify the outdated design of my existing website. Thoughts regarding the whole feel of http://riseup2016.ca? Certainly an extraordinary labor union site when needed inside the general Alberta area. Value your feedback. Appreciated!
Last night I made some steamed green beans, brown rice, and baked chicken topped with a sweet pepper mango puree. The meal took about an hour to cook, but not much of that time required effort from me so it definitely brought me joy!
**Side note: I decided halfway through preparation to blog about it so not every step has photos, sorry!
I figured out earlier in the day what I was going to prepare so I prepped my chicken around noon. I started with 2 large boneless skinless chicken breasts, each of which I cut into thirds. I seasoned with seasoned salt, ground red pepper, paprika, and some old bay seasoning (You can use whatever seasoning you like. I wanted a little heat because I love sweet & spicy). I placed the chicken in a Ziploc bag with diced onions and garlic and stored it in the refrigerator until later in the evening when I was ready to actually cook it. At max that took me 10 mins.
When it came time to actually make dinner I started by putting rice, minced garlic, diced onions, diced carrots, ground red pepper, and chicken broth in my rice cooker. (Am I the only person who can't really cook rice??) This rice cooker is absolutely everything to me. I just throw in my brown rice, set it to "whole grains" and it does all the heavy lifting! The whole grain setting cooks for 60 mins, but I stopped it with 15 mins left and my rice was ready.
**Sidenote: Once I started the rice, I preheated my oven to 375 degrees for my chicken to be prepared later.
With 35 mins left on the rice cooker's timer I got my chicken ready for the oven. I dumped all of the contents of the storage bag into a glass baking dish. I cut the stems off three sweet peppers and cut them in half. I placed those, with 3 slices of mango in my tiny vegetable chopper until everything was finely cut and blended. I spread that mixture over the top of all the chicken, wrapped the dish in aluminum foil and placed it in the oven which all took about 5 mins. 15 mins later I turned the chicken.not sure if it helps to cook more evenly but it's something I always do.
With 10 mins left for the chicken to cook I put my green beans in my rice cooker to steam (did I mention it is also a vegetable steamer?!) by the time the chicken was done, the green beans we're perfect.
Of the hour it took for everything to cook, I was probably on my feet for 15 minsplus the time it took to prep the chicken earlier in the day. This is the perfect weeknight meal! If you're cooking for 1 then you have lunch or dinner for a couple of nights later in the week. I'm horrible at photography but I assure you it all tasted great! Any ideas on how to jazz those leftovers up??
Thanks people! I've messaged a buddie that I could certainly cite his great extraordinary commercial photographer that careses, http://macgregormedia.ca during a website blog post. If perhaps you are searching to find a commercial photographer around the whole Quebec location, they actually were superb.
To finish, we should state the initial concept to this little text was graciously provided through Joe from perigord. Certainly an impressive food blogs. We invariably love a fantastic suggestion!
