I lucked out yesterday. Our Cafe’ at work had Field Greens on the Salad Bar. I keep Salad Dressing and a few other things in the Fridge at work. So I am able to create healthy meals when I need to. I just wanted to see what was in the Cafe’ hoping that there was something that would catch my eye. And there was. YUM 🙂

wpid-20140720_184824.jpgThe other day I was showing a friend some of the pics from things I have created in my room. She asked about  the beautiful Chicken I had made. So, this is for her. Ok ,and the rest of you too. I  forget to write about simple things I automatically do in my room. Like Glazed Chicken.

Glazed Boneless/Skinless Chicken Breasts

Family Pack of Boneless Chicken Breasts-Remember I could Protein to be used throughout the week. It makes the weeknight craziness a bit less crazy. This amount will feed 3 adults about 3 dinners. With at least one being a Salad.

Salad Dressing of your choice. I have found that if I buy a Salad Dressing I don’t like. That it works and tastes great for Chicken.The Dressing I used for this was a Balsamic Vinaigrette.

Water

In a large Skillet place the Chicken. Pour on about 1/4 of the bottle or a bit less. Add 1/4 cup to a 1/2 cup water. Place a lid on the Skillet. Cook at a medium heat for about 20 minutes turning it once. Remove the lid and raise the Temp just a bit. Turn the Chicken often as the sauce reduces.Serve when you like the color.

Simple 🙂

Til next time….Enjoy 🙂

and probably again and again.  As the Tomatoes are arriving in all shapes and colors.:)

This is the 3rd time I have made this since the original post. This time I served it with Balsamic Grilled Chicken and fresh Baked Bread. YUM

Til next time….Get out there and taste the flavors of Summer.
