Wishing everyone a very Happy Valentine's Day.
How to Geek often have good cartoons. I couldn't resist sharing this one today.
Much to my disgust on Tuesday evening (right now in fact) my stomach problems came back, not badly, but my stomach doesn't feel to good at all. I took Gravol which, luckily, I had bought today. So fingers crossed.
Tonight I made Sicilian Olive Chicken which I decided to post as it was delicious. I thought I would check I hadn't posted already as it was new to me. Much to my surprise I had posted the exact same recipe in 2011 although I had never made it. Well I have now and we both enjoyed it. I used fresh spinach and wilted it, let it cool and then proceeded as instructed. I don't know what kind of olives I used, our grocery sells pitted green olives which are big and juicy and I used those. I used chicken breasts, not cutlets.
Sicilian Olive Chicken
Recipe by: Breana Lai, M.P.H., R.D. "This saucy one-skillet chicken dish is full of tomatoes, spina
1 (14 ounce) can petite diced tomatoes with garlic and olive oil or other Italian-style seasonings
1 1/2 cups frozen chopped spinach, thawed
1/3 cup halved Sicilian or other green olives
1 Tbs capers, rinsed
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper, or to taste
4 (4 ounce) chicken cutlets (see Tip)
1 Tbs freshly ground pepper
1 Tbs extra-virgin olive oil Add all ingredients to list
1. Combine tomatoes, spinach, olives, capers and crushed red pepper in a bowl. Sprinkle both sides of chicken with pepper.
2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the chicken until browned on one side, 2 to 4 minutes. Turn it over; top with the tomato mixture. Reduce heat to medium, cover and cook until cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes.
If you can't find chicken cutlets for this recipe, you can make your own. Purchase four 5-ounce chicken breasts. Remove the tenders and trim the fat. Place the chicken between pieces of plastic wrap. Pound with a rolling pin, meat mallet or heavy skillet until flattened to about 1/2 inch thick.
