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.
* 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. ; )
