Last week I didn’t cook much. It all started with a spontaneous invite to a birthday dinner for my grandpa (which was delicious!) and then other plans that just kept popping up making a ‘normal’ dinner meal impossible. I had some great meals but nothing that I had really planned even though I had ideas in my head!
Funny thing was, all week I was craving balsamic chicken with orzo. I even had chicken already marinated that I had to use up before I could actually make this dinner. (It turned into a great salad though).
So it just sat on my taste buds all week until finally Sunday, six days later, I could make it.
Nothing is as satisfying as a dinner that you anticipate to be good and it is just that.
I marinated my chicken in balsamic vinegar and Italian spices for several hours and then baked it at 350 for about 30 minutes ( I had thin chicken so keep an eye on yours).
My orzo was from Trader Joe’s and I cooked it per instructions with some garlic in the pan to give it an extra kick.
Of course, I made some broccoli to get in my veggies.
Simple and delicious.
Have an excellent weekend!
