The hardest part of making dinner each and every night is coming up with ideas that;
- Everyone will like it
- Doesn’t take me half the day to make it
- I don’t have to shop for weird stuff to make it
And most importantly
- I actually enjoy making it and eating it too.
It’s funny how at some point in the day I have always been expected to stop doing whatever I am doing and think about making supper. When the kids were little, that made sense as I was an at home mom and really I enjoyed being at home and it was part of what I did.
But now, I am a grandma. I am cooking for usually only two people sometimes three, but more people than that, I have advanced notice. Ok, ok, maybe I am just grumbling now, but my role has changed. I am not spending my day chasing my children anymore although sometimes I am spending the day with my grandson, and that is not nearly as exhausting. I am now writing, researching, hiking, going to the gym, reading, learning, so I am not in the kitchen as much.
So, when I found this recipe, I had my doubts, but that didn’t last long. This is truly one of the easiest, yet best tasting chicken recipes with the least amount of time to invest, and I have all these ingredients in my kitchen.
Take a read and try it out. It has become a favorite in our family.
