Another secret: the other night, I kind of flaked on my planned meal for Saturday. As in, I was vile, and chose to slam pots around rather than lovingly roll out pizza dough with my husband. But I had a total go-to dinner sitting in my fridge, and I was thankful for it. I thought some of my friends would be thankful for a 5 ingredient supper, too!
What to make when you have nothing in the fridge: Chicken Parmesean
Serves 2 (but you can easily make this for 4, 6, 8, whatever)
- 1 large chicken breast, butterflied
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 T Italian seasoning
- 1 small can of tomato sauce (or, you can use a cup of prepared spaghetti sauce like Ragu)
- 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella
- 1/4 cup grated parmesean cheese
As I was thinking about this recipe, I thought it would make a really yummy mexican version too: use Rotel tomatoes, mexican 4 cheese blend, and taco seasoning for the chicken. With a guacamole salad or black beans, you'd also be set.
