I recently celebrated 27 years here on earth! Mr. PT got me an Ipad which I have been obsessing about in the past week...hence my lack of blogging.
But I have been wanting to share this amazing chicken dish Mr. PT cooked up for me! (I only helped a little...)
It was really healthy, incredibly delicious, and quite light!
He started by softening 1/2 red onion, sliced, in 1-2 tbs of butter in a hot pan. He set this aside.
Then he lightly breaded 4 chicken breasts with whipped egg and breadcrumbs and cooked them in a hot pan with olive oil. When the chicken was cooked through, he wrapped the breasts in aluminum foil and tucked them into a low-heat oven for safe keeping.
To the chickeny-oily mixture in the pan, he added 1/4 cup white wine, 2 tbs butter, salt/pepper, and 1/2 squeezed lemon. He reduced this to a nice sauce.
While this was reducing, he put about 4 heaping handfulls of spinach leaves in a large bowl with 4-5 tbs of water. He covered the bowl with plastic wrap and microwaved it on high for 5 minutes. This steamed the spinach.
To the steamed, drained spinach, he added 1 tbs butter and the other 1/2 of the lemon juice (squeezed), with a dash of salt/pepper.
To put it all together, he spread the spinach on the plate, topped it with a chicken breast, topped THAT with onions, and topped THAT with the wonderful wine-lemon sauce.
YOU CAN'T TOP THAT!!
It was a wonderful dinner and a wonderful birthday. 27 is going to be a great year!
Combine with a challenging walk/run...tackle that hill you normally avoid!
