Do you wish you had more time in the kitchen or more energy left over at the end of the day so you could prepare a delicious, nutritious, and satisfying meal for your family? Well, lots of working parents feel that way; sometimes it just seems so much easier to pop a frozen dinner into the microwave, order a pizza, or run into the drive-through on the way home, but we all know that those kind of meals are neither good for you nor all that satisfying, and they don’t really promote meal time as a special time for the family to gather.
The good news, however, that you really don’t need to spend hours in the kitchen to prepare a delightful meal that everyone will enjoy. There are lots of quick easy chicken recipes, for example, that can be prepared in a short amount of time and will taste delicious and make a nice meal for your family. Chicken is very versatile and can be prepared a lot of different ways.
My favorite quick easy chicken recipe involves boneless breasts and Italian salad dressing. All you need to do is take five minutes before you leave the house in the morning to get your chicken started. Simply poke some holes in the breasts and cover them with the dressing and leave them in a flat baking dish in the fridge to marinate.
When you get home at night, simply roll the breasts in a mixture of flour, grated parmesan cheese out of the can, and Italian bread crumbs, and then place them on a tray or in a shallow pan and bake them in the oven for about half an hour.
While they are getting tasty in the oven, prepare a nice salad using bagged lettuce and some tomatoes and cucumbers and put one of those steam-in-the-bag bags of broccoli or green beans in the microwave and season them with some butter and salt and pepper.
In half an hour, you have a delicious, quick, easy chicken recipe that the whole family can enjoy around the table.
