How do you make your chicken? We eat chicken about 3-4 times per week when we’re not eating fish or another source of protein. I like trying it different ways but for some reason I always make it with LOTS of garlic at least once a week. I love actually cooking it in a garlic sauce and the chicken just absorbs all the flavor – makes for a perfect meal for my husband and I.. of course sweet baby too! Although she’s not too fond of the chicken texture right now.
We typically eat a starch or grain along with our protein and you can’t forget something green! My husband can eat at least two chicken breasts for dinner – he needs his protein so I try to add quinoa to our meal at least 4x a week! I like to cook mine with water and then add the flavor – our favorite way is a little onions chopped up sauteed with a little olive oil and then tossed into the cooked quinoa. Sometimes we even add in some chickpeas and tomatoes.. yum!
So I use a ridiculous amount of garlic.. like an entire bulb. I used to mince it by hand but I’ve been using my KitchenAid Handblender. LOVE this gadget! So what used to take me forever to minced.. now takes seconds and I can even add in the dried parsley and olive oil!
