Simple Grilled Barbecue Chicken Breast

22 Mar

Barbecue chicken breast, broccoli, and corn, it doesn’t get simpler than that! Today was crazy and dinner was, honestly, an afterthought. Everything in the fridge was old and everything in the freezer was, well, frozen. I was tired and I had a headache, yet for some reason, my kids still expected me to feed them! The nerve!

Chicken Breast

Barbecue sauce

Salt, pepper, seasonings

 

As I was defrosting a couple of frozen chicken breasts in the microwave, I was heating up my trusty George Foreman grill. I dry rubbed some seasonings on the breast, grilled them, then covered them in barbecue sauce. Next was a bag of frozen broccoli florets in the microwave, as I opened a can of corn and heated it on the stove.

 

The Verdict

It was far from fancy, but Simple Grilled Barbecue Chicken was a hit!

Easy Grilled Chicken and Rice

21 Mar

Who needs a recipe when you have frozen chicken breasts, barbecue sauce, Minute Ready to Serve Brown & Wild Rice, and frozen broccoli? The night before, I had decided to defrost chicken breasts, but did not know what I was going to make. My husband had recently bought a new George Foreman Grill, so I decided to grill some chicken.

I pounded the defrosted chicken breasts flat, sprinkled on some salt and pepper, dredged them through a bowl of barbecue sauce and tossed on the grill. What a mess that was! I then remembered why I stopped using my old grill, some things make a huge mess on the George Foreman Grill. I spent almost as much time cleaning the grill in between pieces of meat, as I did cooking. Despite my frustration with the mess, the end result was great!

While the chicken cooked, I steamed the bag of frozen broccoli in the microwave, followed by microwaving the rice for 65 seconds, not the 60 seconds on the package…it tastes better that way. I threw in a little butter and salt on both the broccoli and rice, and, “Dinner’s Ready!”

The Verdict

No complaints from anyone. It was a simple tasty dinner that was made on one of our busy nights, not too much work on my part.
