I mean don’t you love the versatility of chicken and what can go with it with?
Chicken is such an easy meat to prepare and can be turned into so many healthy dishes. Its low in fat/ calories and high in protein too.
Easy chicken meals like this make up what Lady Lynne and I have at least once or twice a week.
It’s like my cajun spiced oven baked chicken recipe, except this one is cooked in a grill pan.
These types of recipes make easy, quick and nutritious meals. They fit our busy, hectic weekdays so well.
Time is a huge factor in our lives. Or should I say the lack of it! When I make and serve simple meals like this, I’m thinking you’re in the same position? With a busy life or a family too?
Talking of family. The majority of all my recipes can be adjusted to suit the number catered for.
How do I know? Well, when I’m trialling my recipes, I “double up” my cooking of the dish. In case something should go wrong (perish the thought 😉 ).
