Hey all! It is Derby week here in the bluegrass…and the sun is going to shine the ENTIRE week! Can I get a whoop whoop!!?? I have missed you sunshine:) We don’t have any big plans…other than to watch the races and eat/drink. Our neighborhood will be all a buzz…so we will most likely be spending a lot of time on the front porch:) I wanted to share with you a recipe I tried for the first time last week. It had to be hands down one of the easiest meals I have ever made. It was a huge family hit too! We had a salad with it….but you could probably add in any of your favorite veggies and just skip the salad. Make it this week….it doesn’t disappoint:)
I finally tried a one pot meal. Have you all tried any of those recipes? Martha has a whole cookbook dedicated to one pot meals. This is a definite new meal in our rotation and I hope it is for you too. It does not have a whole lot of heat so it appeals to all the family members. You could even chop all your veggies and put your spices together and chop up your chicken….and when you get home from work just dump it all in the pot. It comes together in about 25 minutes. It was rich and thick and really one of the easiest meals I think I’ve ever put together (have I said that yet?:). I think next time I make it I will add one more chicken breast cut up maybe some mushrooms and more red pepper slices.
One pot people…no joke….you cannot mess this up…
Garlic…..and then more garlic:)
