You know the drill….you look in your pantry, refrigerator, and freezer to try to come up with something for dinner when you know you should be at the grocery story buying groceries. I desperately need to take a trip to the grocery store but a couple of things prevent me from doing so. One, I have been super busy with classes and finals; and two, I hate that place. It’s my most dreaded place to shop and to think when my girls were young, it was THE place I went to get a bit of sanity back. Yes, sanity but now, I feel I am insane for going. Anyway, back to the hunt for dinner. There’s not much here and the family members tell me about it often. I found a pack of chicken breasts, frozen broccoli. fresh green onion and some Laughing Cow Swiss cheese wedges. I also had some containers of minestrone soup in the freezer which I heated up to go with this dinner. One of the things about this impromptu recipe is that you can make it for one, four, or as many as you need to. Another great point is that it’s easy to make and you know that’s a requirement for me. This is what I came up with and it was not only good but it’s very healthy!
For each piece of chicken:
Heat a oven proof skillet with the oil in it. Brown all sides of the chicken roll. You don’t have to worry about the cheese oozing out of the chicken. The cheese doesn’t melt, instead it just gets all kinds of creamy good.
Place skillet in oven and cook till chicken is done, about 30 – 45 minutes. Remove toothpicks before serving.
