-1/2 cup balsamic vinegar (or 1/4 cup of balsamic and 1/4 cup of chicken stock if you want a less vinegar-y taste)
-3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (pounded thin)
-1 onion, thinly sliced (JJ and I use onion flake equivalent instead...neither of us are big on onions)
-1 garlic clove, minced
-1 tsp rosemary
-1 tsp oregano
-1 tsp basil
-1/2 tsp thyme
-1 can diced tomatoes
Season chicken breast halves with ground black pepper. Brown in a large skillet in a few tablespoons of olive oil. (If using regular onions, you should throw them in with the chicken...the onion flakes burn so I wait a little). Throw in the garlic; let it stew a little. Mix rosemary, oregano, thyme, and basil with balsamic vinegar. Put that mixture and the can of diced tomatoes in the skillet, basting the chicken with the liquid. Simmer 15-20 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in center.
We usually eat this over angel hair pasta, but it's good with rice too. And super easy! I love one-skillet meals =). And no, I don't have any pictures of my own cooking, but I did find this one on the internet that is pretty close to what it looks like when it's done (except we try not to smother ours in cheese):
We are also starting to think about Thanksgiving dinner. Since it will be just us two, we want to make a meal that is both special and NOT TOO CRAZY. We are thinking:
-Cornish game hens, with rice stuffing
-Cranberry sauce (from the can, because that's how I like it, and JJ is ambivalent)
-Mashed taters and gravy
-Some sort of vegetable...green beans?
I know, I know. Blueberry pie for Thanksgiving? Sounds weird, right? Well, my uncle Jim makes literally the BEST PUMPKIN PIE in the entire world. It's so good it makes me sad when I eat other pumpkin pies. Seriously. So I kind of don't want pumpkin pie because I think it would just remind me that I'm not in Arizona...so instead we are going to make blueberry pie! Yummy!
Any other ideas for Thanksgiving dinner for two?
