I am all about quick and easy when it comes to meals! Always involving the basics: Protein, carbs and veggies. So here is my Rosemary chicken, garlic lemon kale and brown rice.
- 2 LBS Chicken Breast
- Fresh Rosemary
- 1/2 cup Sun-dried Tomatoes
- 1/4 cup Chicken Broth
- 1/2 Tbsp Oregano
- 1/2 Tbsp Garlic Powder
- 1 Tbsp Black Pepper
- 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
- Parmesan Cheese
For the Garlic Lemon Kale side:
- 2-3 cups (3-4 handfuls) of kale (heat will shrink by a lot)
- half of one white onion
- 3-4 cloves of garlic
- 1 10 OZ of portabella mushrooms
- 1 Tbsp garlic powder ( I actually use FlavorGod Lemon & Garlic seasoning for this side.
- 2 TBSP Olive oil
- juice squeezed from one lemon
I also cook this dish with a side of brown rice, because brown rice takes about 45 minutes to cook I start the rice first. Do as follows on rice package for instructions.
Heat oven to 350 degrees.
As always, I start my chopping first. Chop white onion, garlic cloves, and cut mushrooms in quarters. Chop sun-dried tomatoes in smaller portions. Set aside.
Slice your chicken in halves. I do this so it cooks quicker and better tasting. Cover it with olive oil. Oil your 9 X 13 glass pan. Add chicken. Sprinkle black pepper, oregano seasoning, and garlic powder to your chicken. Atop your fresh rosemary and sun-dried tomatoes on all slices of chicken. I used one large stem and picked the rosemary leaves off and added evenly amongst chicken. Pour 1/4 cup chicken broth to glass pan for moist chicken!
Bake for 25 minutes.
While your chicken is cooking- grab a large pan (I use a wok for my kale dish) . Heat with oil and add in your already chopped garlic, onions and mushrooms. Mix. Wash your kale very well and add in 3-4 handfuls as it may look like a lot, the heat will definitely shrink it down. Right after adding your kale, squeeze your lemon juice in mixture but watch out for the seeds! I usually add a little more oil and stir everything around. This should be on low heat. Let this cook for about 10 minutes while stirring occasionally.
After the 25 minutes, check chicken to ensure it is done. Add parmesan cheese on top and broil for 5 minutes.
Let cool for 15 minutes and then serve.
