Things have been crazy busy lately, as evidenced by my lack of blogging, but I’m making my way back, never fear, ha 😉 Since my schedule has been so full, food has been whatever happens to be the easiest, lately. Last week I threw this random saute together for dinner, Chicken Sun Dried Tomato.
Chicken Sun Dried Tomato Saute
- 1 bag of broccoli slaw
- Pre-grilled chicken (or your choice of meat)
- Melissa’s sun dried tomatoes
- Oil of your choice (coconut preferred)
I started by sauteing the broccoli slaw with salt and lots of pepper, in the pan until it had cooked down. Once it had, I took two pre-grilled chicken breasts and my kitchen shears, and cut the chicken up into bite size pieces directly into the pan. I then did the same with the sun dried tomatoes. So much easier than cutting; no knife, no cutting board, etc. I continued sauteing until everything was warmed, and then ate a bowl for dinner (and brought a bowl to work for lunch a couple days later)!
Helpful tip: If you’re nightshade-free (obviously you wouldn’t use tomatoes here), but, using a lot of black pepper with broccoli slaw, makes it crazy spicy!
This is one of my favorite go-to meals, when I don’t feel like cooking and am feeling rushed; breakfast, lunch, or dinner, included. So easy and so flavorful!
- Mushrooms (I prefer baby crimini)
- Whole garlic
- Sun dried tomatoes (I use Melissa’s, no added salt or sulfites)
- Crumbled herb goat cheese
- Kosher salt/pepp
Start the mushrooms and whole garlic in a little butter/oil of your choice over medium heat, until garlic cloves start to brown:
Take kitchen shears and cut the sun-dried tomatoes into pieces right into the pan (so much easier than cutting!) Continue sautéing until the tomatoes warm up and soften a bit:
Add eggs (number of your choice, last night I added 5, so I could have leftovers for breakfast) and scramble until they reach your preferred done-ness:
Top with crumbles of herb goat cheese (I was out of goat cheese, but had some Gorgonzola leftover from a party, so I used that. Normally, I don’t add cows milk):
