Ah...it is Friday. Whew! It has been a busy week of carting the kids here and there and everywhere. This weekend Nurse Boy and I are even going to try to sneak off on a date. Man, I could use one of those! And, NO, I am not wearing anything that is dry clean only. I have learned my lesson. Those dresses are for non-eating events only.
Or, maybe I should wear it. THAT could be my new diet plan!
On to dinner tonight. This one is a recipe I kind of came up with on my own with--you guessed it--CHICKEN!
We will call it:
You will need:
3-4 Chicken breasts
Bag of frozen peas
Wide egg noodles--your choice of no yoke, whole wheat, or whatever you prefer
8 oz. Freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Light Italian dressing
1/2 stick of butter
Italian seasoning, dried parsley, and garlic powder to taste
1. Cook the egg noodles as directed.
2. While you are doing that, cook the chicken breasts on low heat, on the stove top, in a fair amount of Italian dressing. Sprinkle with Italian seasoning, parsley, and garlic to taste. Cook on each side for about 4-5 minutes until cooked through.
3. Cut up the cooked chicken into strips and add to cooked pasta.
4. Next, add cooked peas, Parmesan cheese, about a 1/3 cup of Italian dressing, butter, and sprinkle with some more Italian seasoning, parsley, and garlic. (You can use more dressing if you think it is too dry.)
I know, I know. Just like Martha Stewart, wouldn't you say? Minus the jail time, big bucks, magazine, TV show, and all the craftiness.
OK, forget I said it.
Have a terrific weekend and eat some chicken for me, K?!
