Recently, I visited my friend, Sharon, from college who now lives in Connecticut. I only spent one night with her and her beautiful family, but I wish I could have stayed longer. Sharon is a natural when it comes to taking care of her home, her children (who are now teenagers), and providing such warm hospitality to her guests.
On the night of my arrival, I was served a chicken dish that knocked my socks off. It was oven baked with Italian seasonings and topped with fresh tomato bruschetta. The combination of the savory Italian seasonings with a scoop of sweet tomato and basil was superb.
Apparently, this dish is such a big hit in my friend’s household that she nicknamed it, Company Chicken.
Last night, after a long and hot work day outside for Scott (which meant a long day, for me, with Banana), I was craving something flavorful, yet quick to prepare.
Rather than ask for my college friend’s favorite recipe, I decided to recreate it with items I had on hand. To my surprise, it came out just as good as I remembered it.
I served it over a bed of fresh spinach, steamed with garlic and olive oil. Scott loved it and insisted that I make this again exactly the same way. It’s one of his new favorites.
I hope you like it as much as my very picky husband. Oh, and by the way, you can easily make this Gluten Free by using gluten free bread crumbs or Paleo by using almond flour!
* This is what I sometimes use in lieu of chicken broth. It’s concentrated and works great when you want to control the liquid to flavor ratio. ; )
