Chicken amp Veggies!

5 years ago

This is what I made for dinner tonight. It is very simple and basic but delicious and satisfying. It was just baked chicken breasts, hobo potatoes, and steamed broccoli & cauliflower.

This is absolutely nothing fancy and something anyone can do... even with the very basic of cook wear!

For the chicken I just tossed them into a glass baking dish and seasoned them with mixed dry herbs and garlic powder. They went into the oven for about 50 minutes at 350 degrees. I started them out uncovered and about 20-25 minutes in I covered them. Then I uncovered for the last 10 minutes or so to let them brown up a bit more.

As for the potatoes... I have done a post on here in the past explaining how I made these as a full meal with meat patties included, but tonight I did the same thing minus the meat. I just sliced up some potatoes and put them in a foil packet (they look like "hobo bags" when they`re crunched up) with a small pat of butter, onions, and whatever seasonings you like (I just use the mixed seasoning again and then a bit of garlic powder...the same flavors as found on the chicken). They go into the same oven as the chicken for about 45 mins-1 hour. Being sliced, though, the 45 minutes should be sufficient. Also note, you can either slice and toss them in or peel them... however you like. I flip flop what I do. Tonight I chose to leave the skins on.

For the veggies. Super, super simple. I don`t have a steamer or a double boil steamer so I just use a basic pan. I used fresh heads of cauliflower and broccoli. I chopped off the florets and tossed them into a large pan with about 1/2 cup water (change the amount depending on how much you have. I used one head of each veggie so I did have quite a lot). Bring the water to a boil, make sure the lid is on the pan and leave them alone for about 3-5 minutes... depending on how soft/firm you want them to be. I wanted mine to remain pretty crisp so I only let them steam for a couple of minutes. I didn`t want to cook the nutrients out of them. Then, drain any remaining liquid and season as you want. I sprinkled the very teeniest amount of salt onto my serving and that was it. I didn`t season the whole pot because I wanted everyone to be able to choose how they wanted to flavor theirs. Plus, I have left over that I will be eating tomorrow with my lunch and I want zero seasonings on them for that. I sprinkled a bit of shredded cheddar cheese onto my son`s portion since he isn`t a fan of veggies and that helps him to eat them without grumping about it.

voila.. super easy and tasty.

Oh, and my chicken looks shredded because I cut some off for my son. He can`t eat a whole breast, so I share mine with him.
