I'm Getting Brave

So last week I told you about how impressive I am - making up my own recipe and everything. Well, today I am pleased to announce, I did it again!

When I was making my weekly menu I put "Baked Chicken" on the list. Yeah, I was a little lazy. Didn't feel like looking for a specific recipe, so I just planned to pick something when the time came. And when the time came, well, I felt inspired to try something new. As in, something new which no one had ever written down before. (At least I hadn't seen it. *wink*)

This is what I did: Coated my baking pan with olive oil and placed boneless, skinless chicken breasts on the oil. (Rather than "pounding" them to 1/4-inch thickness, I always slice each breast into two pieces. As if butterflying them.) I drizzled more olive oil on top of the chicken and sprinkled them with italian seasoning, paprika, garlic powder, and pepper. Then I covered the dish with foil and baked at 350 for 35 minutes. Uncover and bake 10 minutes more.

My whole family loved it. And I quite agreed.

Hmmmm. Maybe my next book will be a cookbook! I can see it now: The Irritable Mother's Guide to Cooking. There sits me on the cover with a large knife in my hand and a silly grin on my face.

I am totally kidding!!! About the cookbook. Not the chicken. You should try it!

Leah - You are too kind. I don't think I can handle another new "career". hahaha!

Chera - I have to admit, trying new things is kind of fun. Go ahead and give it a try sometime! *wink*

Edie - Have I ever told you my favorite story about *somebody*?

There was a job to do, and four people to do it. Anybody, Everybody, Somebody, and Nobody.
Anybody could have done the job. Everybody thought Somebody took care of it. But Nobody did it.
In the end, Everybody was mad at Somebody because Nobody did the job Anybody could have. *grin*

Love you!
