Given the fact that I have a lifetime supply (okay, a week’s supply) of chicken breasts in the house, I decided to make a series of chicken dishes this week. Tonight, I pulled again from the garden and grabbed up some basil. I marinated the chicken with olive oil, basil, garlic, salt and pepper. Unfortunately, the flavor didn’t permeate through the chicken. The chicken was finished off with a chiffonade of basil that helped provide a bright flavor. For sides, I made two. The first was your basis mashed potato dish. I put a little butter, sour cream, nutmeg, and garlic powder in the potatoes. For the other side, I wanted to make a salad. Since I was going with an Italian theme, I pulled out some dried figs, hazelnuts, and gorgonzola cheese. The combination was great! Pictures to come later.
