Garlic and Brown Sugar (and Onion) Chicken. And some PO-TAY-TOES!!

Yum Yum Food Time!! Wiiiiith BECKY!!!!!

I got very much used to Brandon cooking meals. Which was awesome! But as all things change, so did this. (You mean I have to get off the couch and be a grown up!?)
And I got tired very quickly of hearing “what’s for dinner?” every night.
“What’s for dinner?”
“Food”
“What kind of food?”
“The good kind of food”
“What good kind of food?”
“The kind you eat.”
“What good kind of food that you eat?”
“The kind you are gonna get.”
“What is it?”
“Food.”

And so on and so forth…
Till he got tired of asking.

He still does cook. Mostly meat. Especially steak.
I love it when he cooks. Sometimes he surprises me.
Like yesterday.
The menu was grilled cheese and soup. It was a blustery, rainy, grey, perfect day for grilled cheese and soup.
He surprised me by making chicken noodle from scratch!
Then he surprised me again when he said he didn’t know how to make grilled cheese…
Apparently he is unsure which side of the bread to butter…
The complexity of buttered bread is always a mystery to mankind….

Today’s meal choice is was vague… chicken and potatoes…
Good job Becky… vague chicken and potatoes.

I didn’t want to take a whole lot of time with it though. SO for your enjoyment, a quick dinner. About 10 minutes prep, 30 minutes cook time (At the most)

Ingredients:
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast
3 tsp. Olive Oil
4 Garlic Cloves, minced
4 Tbs. Brown Sugar
(I added onion, cause I love onion)

Saute garlic (AND ONION!!!) in the olive oil till tender.

It’s so yummy, in my tummy!

October 22nd, 2010

This is not a food challenge, but just something yummy!!

Tonight since it’s Friday

and because I have a secret love affair with pasta (don’t tell Brandon)

I made some fettuccine alfredo with grilled chicken!

Did you know that…?

Fettuccine alfredo was named after restaurteur Alfredo di Lello, who created it.

Know you know!!!

lol. Thanks Betty Crocker!

I grilled chicken breasts on the George Forman, which in my opinion is a MUST HAVE in all kictchens.
I added a dash of Mrs.Dash as it cooked.


Doesn’t it look good enough to eat. Please, no licking the screen.

The alfredo sauce was pretty easy to make.
All you need is 1/2 whiping cream, 1/2cup butter (melted together till boiling)
reduce to simmer till it thickens slightly
remove from heat and add in 3/4 cup parmesian cheese, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and a dash of pepper.

DONE!

I actually doubled my alfredo recipie cause I had an already opened carton of heavy whipping cream that I didn’t want to go to waste so I doubled it.

My suggestion is don’t double the parmesean cheese. There was a lot of it, a little too much if you ask me.

Cook some noodles, pour on the sauce, top with chicken, and sprinkle with parsley!

Brandon loved it so much he had two helpings and made himself sick!

I like keeping my hubby happy like that! πŸ™‚
