I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Lemony Chicken with Asparagus and Brussels Sprouts

Another one pan meat and veggie beauty ready in about 30 minutes! Perfect for a quiet evening in over the holidays!

(Aren't we all having quiet evenings in? #Covid 😠😒)

3 medium boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp basil
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsps butter
1/4 lb asparagus, cut in thirds
1/4 lb brussels sprouts, halved
1/2 red pepper, diced
1/2 cup diced onion
3 tsps minced garlic
1 cup heavy (35%) cream
2 tbsps lemon juice
zest of 1/2 a lemon
2 tbsps parmesan cheese

Heat olive oil in a large skillet, sprinkle the chicken all over with salt and pepper and brown 5-6 minutes per side. Remove to a plate. Add butter to the pan on medium heat and placed the brussels sprouts cut side down. Cook 3 minutes and turn for 3 minutes. Add onion and brown 2 minutes.

Then add the red pepper and asparagus cooking for another 3-4 minutes before adding the garlic in the last minute.

Pour the cream, lemon juice, zest and parmesan in and stir together.

Return the chicken to the pan, turn to coat. 

Cook 4-5 minutes or until chicken is fully cooked through.
Serve with rice or noodles.

A little fancy, eh?
