I threw this dinner together in about half an hour, including prep. I wasn't really expecting it to be anything special but I was very pleasantly surprised. The chicken in particular was really good. My husband doesn't really eat a whole lot of broccoli and he finished mine off! The best part? It's a Weight Watchers friendly dinner!
The cannellini mash recipe can be found here.
4 skinless, boneless chicken thighs
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground pepper
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp honey
2 tbsp chopped fresh basil
Pound the chicken thighs with a mallet to even out the thickness. Sprinkle both sides of the chicken with salt and pepper.
Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook until lightly browned. Turn the chicken and cook until done. Stir in the balsamic vinegar, honey and basil. Cook 1 minute, turning the chicken to coat with the glaze.
I pound broccoli florets
2 tsp olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 tsp salt
Steam the broccoli, covered, in the microwave for 3 minutes; drain.
Head the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and saute for 1 minute or until it begins to turn golden. Take care not to burn the garlic, it will taste bitter. Add the broccoli. Saute, stirring, for 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and sprinkle with salt; toss well.
I used basil from my very own garden! The honey was from our local CSA and I've been eating it by the mouthful.
