Chicken with Spinach & Roasted Red Peppers
You know what? I have to be totally honest with you, this weekend knocked the crap out of me. Not because I was sick, that has passed. This weekend kicked the crap out of me because my fuse must be like .0295 milli-micro-supersmall-nano-seconds long.
Yeah. There were all sorts of challenges. Challenges that made me put on full display mom and wife melt downs, I am so not proud.
So there are those days when your toddler will not take a nap. You know, the ones where stuffed animals get tossed over the railing…by you. Yeah, I’m not proud – Sorry Mickey…and Minnie..and Bear..etc..
There are also those days when your partner sort of rolls their eyes at you, or thinks you lost something of theirs, or thinks you gave the computer a virus…NO IT WAS NOT ME I SWEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And yes I am pretty sure I yelled worse than that, and rolled my eyes right on back...thrice
Calgon, take me away.
PS..The P90x is kicking my butt.
PPS..I am so glad that Indigo's #2 accident came after everybody else left the park.
PPPS..I am sorry Indigo for letting the world know about the #2 accident.
Delightfully borrowed from Gina
4-6 Chicken Breasts, thin cut
1 bag spinach, pre-washed from the salad aisle
1 jar, Roasted Red Peppers
2 cloves garlic
Cayenne Pepper for a little heat
Salt & Pepper
2 tbs flour
Olive Oil, for sauteing the Chicken and Spinach
Pre-Heat oven to 350
First you will want to season your chicken with salt ,pepper,and Cayenne. Next lightly drizzle a little bit of flour onto the chicken. In a large pan over a medium high heat, sauté your chicken until cooked through.
Heat a sauté pan or pot over medium heat. Add oil (1-2 tsp) and garlic, sauté a few seconds, add spinach, salt and pepper. Cook a few minutes until heated through.
When chicken is done, lay on a baking sheet lined with foil. Divide spinach evenly between your chicken breasts. Top each with mozzarella, then slices of roasted pepper and bake until melted, about 6-8 minutes.
There, were all done cooking - phew. I am super beat! This weekend took one look at me and gave me a big ole whooping. Weekend, I give up. Take me to Monday.
PPPPS, I can’t believe I just said that.
