Alrighty, I'm a little late on the dinner post this week, but better late than never, right? Right.
First up was a little something I threw together before we could actually get to the store this week. It's kind of a cross between chicken picatta, chicken parmesan, and chicken tenders. I like to call it: chicken picatta Tenders over pasta.
To make this I just breaded the chicken tenders in Italian bread crumbs/parmesan cheese and then baked them at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes, turning them halfway through. Once the chicken was done I just slapped 2 tenders on top of some spaghetti and marinara sauce and then topped the whole thing with more parmesan. Yum! Oh, and I served it up with some of the sparkling red wine that my sister gave me a few weekends ago when I puppy sat for her. It was the perfect combo.
The next thing I made for dinner was this:
|Chicken Pesto Pasta|
I served the pesto up with this yummy greek salad that I make all the time. It was, as always, a hit.
I also made this wonderful Mexican lasagna...
|I found the recipe for this here|
|Shoutout to Ina (aka the Barefoot Contessa) for inspiring this lemon basil chicken!|
I love this chicken. It's kind of my "go to" recipe when I'm out of ideas or can't find anything that's jumping out at me on the Internet/in my cookbooks.
On a completely unrelated note:
Justin Bieber's Christmas album came out on Tuesday. I recommend that you go out and get it immediately. That's all.
