Simply Delicious

OK I titled this -Simply Delicious- because the meal I made for supper tonight was simple AND delicious! It was simply Grilled Chicken. I guess it was the seasonings I used that made it delicious. So I am sharing it with you, so you can try it if you want to.

Start with 3 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
I cut the larger ones in half to make smaller pieces easier for grilling
Place pieces in a bowl
Add EVOO (If you watch Rachel Ray, you know thats Extra Virgin Olive Oil)
Sprinkle with the following: Tony Cacheries, McCormick's Barbecue Seasoning, Garlic Powder*Just a touch, Emerils Essence Southwest Seasoning and Worcetershire Sauce.

Turn pieces covering well with seasoning.
Grill about 5 or 6 minutes on each side. Make sure its done, but if you wait too long it wont be juicy and delicious like mine was today. Sorry no way to tell you exactly when to take it off.

The other thing I did was take left over tortillias from yesterdays lunch and quarter them. Drizzle the EVOO over them and shake on some ground black pepper and Sea Salt! I have Sea Salt only because my husband the cook LOL bought some the last time he grilled steaks for us and used it on the baked potatoes. So now I am wanting to use it when I can. I put them in a 350 degree oven for a few minutes until lightly browned. They made a great crispy cracker like bread with our meal. It was really simple and very nice.

Now the other simple thing I made with tonights meal is something you have probably made tons of times just like me. But adding little touches that we dont always add, made it DELICIOUS. So this is what I put in my Green Salad.

First the usual: Iceberg Lettuce (Although if I had a Spring Mix I would have used that.)
and Tomato
Now for the special little delicious touches.
Red Onion sliced very thinly
Banana Pepper Rings and
Calamatta Olives (Much better than green or black)
If Todd would eat it, there would have been cheese as well and if I had some I would have sprinkled sunflower seeds on there too. But it was GREAT just like I did it today. For me Balsamic Vinagrette Dressing, for Todd Ranch.

Then I just added a vegetable - Corn - cause Josh will eat corn and that is all he will eat in this meal aside from the grilled chicken so I try to add at least one other thing that he will eat so he will have more than one item on his plate. The joy of picky eaters. :)

Well now if I do say so myself, I think that delicious meal deserves a hand - or two - or four. :)
