I started thinking about tonight’s dinner this morning at 10am, and then I didn’t think about it at all until about ten ’til 7.
This morning I marinated two chicken breasts in one tub of nonfat plain yogurt, a teeny bit of olive oil, salt, and some chopped green herbs and garlic. I did the same with some chicken thighs as well, as I had been intending on baking them. But when time ran out, I knew I needed to rethink my plan of action.
So I chopped the chicken breasts, and tossed them in a pan with a couple of cups of frozen peas and sauteed them until they were done. At the same time, I was cooking some small shelled pasta, and once the pasta was ready and the chicken was almost done, I added some of the pasta water (about 1/2 cup) to the chicken. Then I drained the pasta, tossed it in the pan, and stirred it all to combine.
Delicious! (and while all this was going on, and during dinner, the chicken thighs were baking for my husband’s lunch).
How do you best like chicken?
