Kicking it old school

This was a recipe I used endlessly after I graduated college. 

There is chicken in there - trust me.

Why? Because all you need to do is pull together the ingredients - wrap it in foil - pop it in the oven - it cooks while you decompress on the sofa watching TV- walla! your dinner is done.

It has been a while since I graduated from college - so this is a little more involved. 

Again, no exact amounts because you can do a million variations of this basic recipe. So, I encourage you to embrace your creative nature and make up something totally unique.

For the marinade I mixed together lemon peel, lemon juice, crushed garlic, mustard, ground pepper and some parsley.

One chicken breast went into the aromatic bath for 30 minutes.

Then I placed it on a sheet of tinfoil.

In went the veggies:

Carrots, celery, onion, whole cloves of garlic, ground pepper and slices of lemon.

 All wrapped up.

The package went into a 350 degree oven for 1 hour. 

This is a very reliable recipe. The chicken came out tender and juicy. The veggies were just cooked through and infused with the mustardy/lemon flavor of the marinade. 

My favorite are the cloves of roasted garlic - Yummm!

I am totally procrastinating on the whole 'About Me' page. Was that an easy thing for everyone else to write????


  1. O, that sounds really good. I bet the chicken absorbs the flavor of the veggies - yum!

  2. sounds delicious - and super convenient!
    aw, just don't over think it (the about me page) - just something to let your readers know a little more about you! you can always update it as you go :)
