Let me start off by introducing you to “B,” my live in boyfriend. We’re college sweethearts who moved to the city together after school to start the next big step of our lives together. B loves to cook, drink, and entertain as well, so expect to see the occasional post from him. We actually work quite well together in our small kitchen, though he is definitely a messy cook!
Now that you’ve been introduced to B, let’s discuss one of our nightly conundrums…what to have for dinner. B and I are both young careerists, and, like most working professionals, we need quick and somewhat healthy meals during the week. I try to be creative with my quick meals; no one likes to get stuck in the pasta-every-night rut. I’ll post quick recipes B and I come up with to keep us from getting bored, and hopefully it will give you some ideas for interesting weeknight meals. Here is my first quick meal post, enjoy!
Chicken & Apples
This quick chicken meal only took about 20 minutes, I suggest using thin chicken breasts to keep the cooking time short. This meal was inspired by things I already had sitting around, namely, an apple and a half an onion. Recipe serves 2.
2 thinly sliced chicken breasts
1 small apple
½ a small yellow onion
Flour, salt and pepper (just enough to coat the chicken)
Olive oil (two turns of the pan)
½ cup of dry white wine
1 tsp. rosemary
1 cup cooked white rice
Thinly slice the apple and onion. Dredge the chicken through flour (add a little salt and pepper). Heat the olive oil in a sauté pan over medium to medium-high heat. Add the chicken, onion, apples, and the rosemary. Make sure to stir the apples and onions so they cook evenly. Chicken should cook for about 3 minutes each side. After chicken is cooked through, add the white wine and stir, let it cook down for a minute or two. Serve over white rice.
