Are you in need of a quick chicken dinner? Well, today is your lucky day. Not only is it chicken, but it is chicken breasts. You could totally do chicken thighs, but I think it is hard to find good recipes for breasts to keep them from being dry. I’d rather save my chicken thighs for more finicky dishes, like a stir fry. This is also allergy-friendly since I first made this when the Chiplet couldn’t have any nuts at all, and I like that I can use a butter substitute if dairy is an issue.
When I was looking back through my pictures to figure out which recipes I wanted to share, I had the hardest time remembering where this one came from. Normally I would have dismissed it as not memorable, but actually it was. I remembered that we all really liked it, including the Chiplet in a pureed form. So, I definitely wanted to make it again. All I needed to do was think back to which cookbooks I had been looking at for ideas and finally I remembered this one. See? Even my tired brain works sometimes. I am very happy to be reminded of this because it was fairly simple. My biggest worry at the time was if it would turn out okay with my changes. But it did and we enjoyed it.
I don’t know how many installments this will have, but here is the first one! I am hoping it will have a bunch since this will be sort of an ongoing adventure for our family. My husband K had the realization recently that he knows how to cook certain dishes really well, but hasn’t had to do as much cooking since we’ve been married. As a result, his cooking progress had hit a plateau. He wanted to get back in the kitchen and learn to make some dishes we have had in the past and enjoyed. This sounded like a good idea, and one we should start immediately so that we could make him feel better for the future and give us another couple-y activity to do.
