So, I gotta be honest with ya. I’ve been a little behind on work. Things have been crazy busy with my family life and work, so I’m not in the kitchen as much as I’d like to be. For the past few months, I had back up recipes/pictures in a folder on my computer because I was cooking so much. Well, those have run out and I wasn’t making anything super exciting this week for dinner. I needed quick and easy. So, instead of bailing on this week’s food feature, I decided to show you what quick and easy looks like in my house.
Last night for dinner I made bourbon chicken and roasted broccoli. The hardest part was stopping to take pictures. I mean this is one of those dinners that is put together before I can even get my kids to set the table!
I had a giant bag of broccoli in my fridge, so it was as simple as roasting (with olive oil, salt and pepper) it in the oven at 425, then tossing with lemon, pine nuts and parmesan. I based it loosely off this recipe…The Best Broccoli of your Life.
While the broccoli roasts, you are cooking the chicken and dumping together a few pantry items for the sauce. SO EASY.
This is the recipe for Bourbon Chicken. Which has Asian flavors, but I’ve been to many Chinese restaurants and I’ve never seen Bourbon Chicken on the menu. Regardless, it tastes good!
