First--apologies for the cruddy picture--there IS chicken under those mushrooms. Scott told me the other day that it really freaks him out that I take photos of our food. :) Yes, I guess it is a little strange.
You know those pages in the recipe books that are so sticky from things getting spilled that you know by now it's a great recipe you love? This has been a favorite of ours for years--and for Scott to like something (other than me) for years is astounding.
From Trim and Terrific: American Favorites (a family favorite)
1 1/4 pounds boneless chicken parts
1 tablespoon minced onion flakes
1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
2 tsp honey
Dash of garlic powder
1/2 cup chopped green bell peppers
2 1/2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms.
From Trish's Easy Peasy Shortcuts (I've learned measurements don't matter for this one)
2 chicken breasts (or more if you want more)
Fill medium bowl with some soy sauce and more teriyaki (I prefer teriyaki to soy sauce, hence the deviation)
Sprinkle in onion flakes, garlic powder, and whatever strikes fancy
Squeeze in honey
Let chicken marinate for as long as you can (I try to start it in the morning so it's nice and juicy by the time I get home--hence the dark color of the chicken in the picture.
Place chicken in 2-quart baking dish. Pour sauce over top. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Take out of oven and cover with mushrooms and bell peppers and continue coooking for another 20 minutes or until veggies are tender. Serve with rice.
In Real Life?
I'm exhausted. I've been having severe jaw pain for the past year and half and finally sucked it up for an MRI this morning. Two hours in a tube. Moments were relaxing, but when I had to force my jaw open...ugh...
I made some great progress on the quilt top yesterday until I realized that my tension was off after changing my bobbin and now I'll have to unpick two rows. BUT the good news is I'm almost done! And then I just have to think about binding it and then cuddling with it.
Zero progress in Les Miserables. Still have ONE more book left, so can definitely see the horizon there. Am caught up to the group for Wuthering Heights, though, so yay! Anyone up for a Brothers Karamazov readalong this summer? I know Bellezza just did one but I missed it.
Scott is in the other room right now listening to Nessum Dorma and Con te Partirò. They're so beautiful it makes me want to cry. I might just a little. :)
Our fourth anniversary is on Wednesday and Scott says no flowers because he has a big surprise. Not sure I can hold my breath until then!!!
We finally planned our next trip! We're going on a biking trip to the Ozarks (in Arkansas). Yes, like a motorcycle. Over Memorial Day Weekend. Now I just have to ask off of work. We're still in "busy season" and on extended hours so this will be tricky. I'm going to plead I need this trip for my well-being.
