Unbelievable by EMF here, but it won't let me.)
So! What do I have for you today? I have a great, easy, quick chicken recipe. I made this for the fam a few weeks back and the hubs liked it so much that we're having it again on Sunday. I got this recipe from Biggest Book of 30 Minute Meals, an awesome cookbook I got from my parents a couple years ago.
Lemon-Tarragon Chicken Toss
6 oz dried fettuccine or linguine
2 cups broccoli or cauliflower florets
1/2 cup chicken broth
3 Tbs lemon juice
1 Tbsp honey
2 tsp cornstarch
1/4 tsp ground white pepper
12 oz skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces
2 tsp olive oil or cooking oil
1 medium carrot, shredded
1 Tbsp snipped fresh tarragon or 1/2 tsp dried tarragon, crushed
Cook pasta according to package directions, addition the broccoli or cauliflower for the last 4 minutes of cooking; drain well. Return pasta mixture to pan; cover and keep warm.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine broth, lemon juice, honey, cornstarch, and white pepper; set aside.
In a large nonstick skillet stir-fry chicken in hot oil for 3-4 minutes or until no longer pink. Stir cornstarch mixture; add to skillet. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Add carrot and tarragon; cook for 1 minute more.
To serve, spoon chicken mixture over pasta mixture.
NOTES: I used broccoli. Instead of shredding a carrot (what a PIA!), I chopped it up and added it in with the chicken while it cooked.
I enjoyed this recipe. Easy to make AND it tastes good! It even makes great leftovers. Who doesn't like that?!
Since I didn't have much in the way of pictures this time, I thought I'd share a couple of pictures taken a couple weeks ago.
I know I said it before, but thank you so much for supporting my blog. I have had so much fun doing this. It has opened up a creative avenue I didn't even know I needed. A big thanks to Makeup Zombie, aka: Ms W, aka: bestie for "making me" do this. This is all her fault. LOL
