Keepin’ it simple…

Thought I should make a post about how I eat on the days in between I try cooking “different” stuff, i.e. regular days with good, but low-effort, food that require no planning.
The following recipe is a perfect example of that.
It was made in a very short time, only using what I found when opening the refrigerator, and is maybe better to be seen as inspiration rather than a recipe as it’s so…simple:

No-effort Chicken with Roasted Parmigiano Veggies

Ingredients:
• Chicken Breasts.
• Leftover Rub from latest grilling.
• Butter.
• Whatever veggies you have at home. (In my case: Romanesco, Broccoli, Onions, Cherry Tomatoes.)
• Some leftover Parmigiano. (Any cheese will of course do just fine, and is highly optional..)
• Olive oil.
• Salt and Pepper to taste.
• Cold sauce of choice. (I had some Béarnaise at home, you could also mix some Turkish yoghurt with some minced garlic and/or herbs for an easy, low-effort sauce.)

What to do:

1)
Preheat oven to about 390F.

2)
Cut the veggies into bite size pieces, toss them in olive oil with a bit of salt and pepper and pour over into an oven tray.
Grate some cheese over and roast in the oven for about 20 minutes.

3)
Meanwhile, place a frying pan on high heat with a piece of butter in it.

4)
Wash and dry the chicken breasts, and cut them into strips lengthwise, maybe 3 strips per breast.

5)
Place them in the hot pan and give them some color on both sides while seasoning with the rub, and then pour in some water (start with a cup or so). Let them simmer until the veggies are done, flipping them over every once in a while.
(The water will evaporate (and should), so add just a little bit more at a time if needed. The water is supposed to be gone when the veggies are done, and doing this way will keep the chicken very juicy…)

6)
Right before serving, let a chunk of butter melt in the frying pan and flip the chickens a few times to give them a nice, buttery, coating.

7)
Enjoy the simplicity.

(..yupp, half of the reason for this post was to put the Romanesco’s on display. ;)
If you ask me, they are by far the coolest, most beautiful vegetable there is!)

Both LCHF and Paleo…

Take care, and feel free to comment!
