between travel, chasing snow & a good ol' winter cold on the weekend...& a mid-week double delight of today's italian class & tonight's puccini opera "tosca"...cooking is a bit light & rather predictable (according to boyworld, anyway!) this week.
in casa piacere predictable=chicken!
this what's cooking wednesday recipe is a recent experiment gone well...the dish Baby Girl dubbed "awesome chicken" over her holiday. it stands well on its own (& was a fine meat with last night's mashed potatoes & edamame) & it eases rather well into a chicken soup if you have leftovers (i make extra just for that purpose).
sorry...no photos...some very sweet men cleaned up the kitchen too quickly for me to get a shot. can't complain about that!!
add extra virgin olive oil to a pan to cover the bottom...place 2 pounds split chicken breasts (boneless) in pan
whisk together 1/4 c. dijon mustard, 1/4 c. balsamic vinegar, juice squeezed from 1 lemon, 1/4 c. more olive oil, & 3 finely diced garlic cloves...drizzle over chicken
sprinkle chicken with fresh ground pepper & sea salt to your liking
bake at 400 for 30-40 minutes~~ it's that easy!
