I don’t know about y'all, but I’ve been busy kicking some Corona butt.
I’m still living my life.
With some amendments, yes... You know - those simple things in life. Like being able to grocery shop in peace. That’s out the door.
Or, planning beyond one dinner out. The door’s been closed on that one too.
And, maybe it's the simple act of choosing what brand of soap or even toilet paper to buy… Something we may usually take for granted, or show zero appreciation to on a daily basis. Yes, choice is kinda, sorta, maybe severely limited on our selection of toiletries there too.
But regardless of change - I’m still working.
I’m still exercising.
I’m still staying hydrated.
I’m still washing my hands. Funny thing there - I always did wash my hands.
I still have a daily routine.
I still plan.
I still write.
I still paint.
I still cook.
I still eat.
And I still ramble on and on.
So, yeah… I’m still simply chugging along.
I suppose the only real and big difference here is that I’m gonna take that virus, and give it a swift kick in the you know what, and send it packing. I will NOT be scared at all.
And with all these simple and very basic of changes in life happening right now, I know with a hundred percent certainty that there’s one vitally important thing on the above list that is imperative to human survival. And we all certainly don’t need Google or the news to tell us that it is so. And that is food. Cooking. The act of eating. Amidst all the Corona Chaos - we all still need to eat, my friends.
Yes, Corona Apocalypse or not - we all gotta eat y’all.
So today I’m publishing a fabulous and easy and completely one pan dinner recipe. If you’ll be home busting some Corona behind, do it in style with an easy meal. That is, as long a you have some chicken available at your local grocer. Lord only knows we don’t have access to a lot of toilet paper these days, but your store may, possibly, have chicken. Makes sense, right?
This recipe was inspired by the MyFitnessPal One Pan Chicken recipe, with some modifications to suit our tastes. It’s loaded with flavor. Very healthy. And a simple dinner to whip up after a long day of fighting crime - or viruses.
I hope you enjoy making this dinner as much as I did. And I definitely intend on making it again real soon.
In the interim, I’ll keep living. I’ll keep on keepin’ on. ~
One pound of chicken - we used legs for this meal.
One pound of fresh green beans.
One small carton of cherry tomatoes.
One onion, chopped or sliced.
A few garlic cloves, chopped.
One carton of chicken broth.
One tablespoon or so of your favorite olive oil.
Balsamic Vinegar to taste.
Sea salt to taste.
Freshly ground peppercorn to taste.
Pour olive oil in a large pan.
Add chicken and start simmering.
As chicken cooks add chopped or sliced onion. Continue simmering.
Let chicken continue cooking.
Add chicken broth.
Add cherry tomatoes and seasoning.
Add balsamic vinegar.
Simmer for 15 minutes or so. Stirring occasionally.
Serve in a bowl and enjoy.
Optional: To really kick things up a notch, to really be brave, to really show Co-vid 19 that you are not afraid, serve this fabulous meal with a bottle of Corona Beer on the side. ~~
