Hope you are all enjoying your holiday weekend! Today is officially my last day of summer, back to work I go tomorrow on my birthday. Here we have a great weeknight option for all those moms and dads who are struggling getting back into the swing of things!
Easy, that has been the key thing in my mind when I have been menu planning these past few weeks. As I mentioned last week, it is the beginning of the school year which means I am tired and have put long hours into my hot classroom. The last thing I feel like doing after one of those days is making some elaborate dinner. I want something that is still delicious, but comes together with ease and few ingredients. A bonus would be if I have all the ingredients already on hand, which in this case I did. This chicken is seared, removed, and then cooked in with all the other ingredients. Once the chicken is cooked through, the sauce is blended and topped with some fresh basil. This made us feel like we were eating a fancy meal, but it came together in less than 30 minutes and you use only one pan to make it. I don’t know about you, but this is definitely a winner in my book!
