Kitchen Adventures: Chicken or Fish?

Good Morning Humble Readers...

More than a week ago I promised you all a recipe... and I am just now getting around to it.  Soooo, because I made you wait so long, I'm throwing in a second one for kicks.  Both are super easy.

Goat Cheese & Herb Stuffed Chicken

One boneless skinless chicken breast per person
Sun-dried tomato & Oregano Salad Dressing
Goat Cheese
Basil, Oregano, Thyme, Parsley (whatever herbs you like)

Carefully cut a deep pocket into each chicken breast without cutting all the way through.  Place chicken breasts in a zipper bag and cover with the salad dressing.  Allow to marinate in the fridge for at least an hour (longer is better).  When the breasts have marinated long enough, take them out of the bag and discard remaining marinade.  Carefully sprinkle inside the pocket liberally with your herbs of choice.  Then stuff with goat cheese.  I baked this at 350 for about twenty mintues, but you could also grill it just as easily.  I served it with bbq-style potatoes and onions, and a creamy cucumber salad.

Tomatoey Baked Salmon

One Salmon filet per person
Two tomatoes, diced
Two-Three green onions, chopped fine
Minced Garlic
Lemon pepper
Lemon juice

Combine tomatoes, green onions, and basil.  Place salmon filets in a lightly oiled baking dish.  Sprinkle with lemon juice and lemon pepper.  Carefully spread minced garlic on filets.  Top with tomatoe mixture.  Bake in a 350 oven for 20 minutes or until salmon flakes easily.  I served this one with lemony greek potatoes and a cabbage salad. 

Both were super easy and super yummy!  They also are easily adapted for different numbers of people.  I'm sorry I don't have a picture of the second one. 


  1. Always making me hungry, woman, and like old mother hubbard, my cupboards are bare. i want to come play and cook with you! i dig your recipes!

  2. These are two of my absolute favourite things to eat. So you've won me over. They both look super yummy!! I liked the 'oh my' meme too-how interesting about you and your hubby meeting that way. I have never played 'things in a box', sounds fun though.
    Thinking of you :)

  3. That sounds AMAZING. Going to bookmark this one. :)

  4. Chicken and OMG that looks amazing!
