(60) Lemon Chicken with Olives

Do you ever have a day where you feel like a complete moron with everything you do? That was me today! I don’t know where my kitchen mojo went, but it was missing! This is a pretty easy, straight forward recipe (thank the lord!). If it wasn’t, we would have been ordering pizza! I made a few changes to the recipe. My shallots were dried up and nasty, so I used the red onions from the farm box. I didn’t have any fancy green olives… just used the ones from the jar. Voila! I also didn’t have cutlets, rather just had some chicken tender pieces, so I used those. All in all, it went very well!

I do want to point out 2 things about this recipe. First, I would double the sauce part. There was little to no sauce action by the time it all cooked down. It was still very tasty, but it needed more sauce (Nancy, are you out there?! This sauce tip is for you and the RC!). Secondly, don’t crowd the pan when you’re doing your chicken. I know it’s a pain to have to do the meat in 2 batches, but it cooks so much better that way!!

I served this with some couscous (which I will discuss later) and sauteed greens that I needed to use up. (I think this would be FANTASTIC with some wilted spinach!)
