I love a quick and easy dinner, I do love to cook for hours as well. But when I’m intensively writing I need something quick and easy , because I want to get back to writing asap. These days i’m writing a lot, and it takes up most of my day and at the end of the day I need a good meal to keep going. That’s why today’s dish is exactly that, easy to make and incredibly tasty and it’s pretty quick as well.
As you all might know I tend to plan my weekly dinners at Sundays, so I know every week what to eat. The great thing about that is that I know what to eat the next day for dinner. This gives me an advantage because I can prep a meal the night before which makes it so much easier the next day. Today I had Chicken filet that I marinated the night before( The recipe for the marinade will be written at the bottom of the post.
First off I pre-heated the oven to about 400 degrees, while waiting on the oven to get all heated I use an Iron skillet added some butter and added the chicken to give it some color before putting it into a casserole dish and put it in the oven for about 20-30 minutes. While the chicken was in the oven, I sliced up some mushrooms and zucchini and added them into another iron skillet with some butter, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper until they where almost caramelized. I boiled some rice, and served it all up with some chicken sauce I found at the grocery store.
Normally I would teach myself how to make the perfect sauce for chicken but since I was in a hurry to get back to my writing this would have to do for now. It’s an easy chicken fillet dish that is suitable for any night of the week, weekdays as well as the weekend. I really recommend trying it if you haven’t already. IT might seem a little boring, but believe me when I say that the result is really good and perfect when you’re in a hurry. You can easily switch out the vegetables with your favorite vegetables, or make your own marinade, but this is so easy to make and fun as well. Personally I needed something easy for a change. I have some problems with eating lately so I needed something that was easy to make, looked good and tasted great. This was the perfect alternative.
