Easy Chicken Breast Recipe – Twenty Five Minutes

Easy Chicken Breast Recipe-5-poppopcooks.com-chicken breast recipes, chicken recipes, chicken breast, boneless chicken recipes, easy chicken recipes, recipes for chicken breasts

This Easy Chicken Breast Recipe uses sage which goes along with poultry real well.

My turkey dressing always goes over good and sage is an important ingredient.

Sage can grow just about anywhere except for blazing hot desert and freezing polar weather. Just plant it in the garden or in a pot on a window sill or the deck and let it do it’s thing.

And if you do live inside the Arctic circle or in the Sahara desert or if you just aren’t a plant person dried sage from the spice rack works okay.

Gammy learned growing up on a farm here in Texas that when the sage plants are blooming that means it will rain soon. So far she hasn’t convinced me about that one.

You will make this easy chicken breast recipe like a chef. It’s simple and has only a few ingredients that come together real well.

Instead of a humdrum weeknight supper you and your special squeeze will be able to close your eyes and imagine you are dining out at a fine hillside ristorante in Tuscany.

I put together a scallions – aka green onions – , peas and gnocchi in one skillet while I was doing the easy chicken breast recipe in another skillet. 

Regular old onions or shallots will work instead of scallions, if you like.

If your chicken breasts are frozen put them in the microwave to thaw out. One skillet at medium heat with about 1/8″ of good extra virgin olive oil. Another skillet at medium high with about 2-3 tablespoons of regular olive oil. Just eyeball enough to coat the bottom of the skillet plus a little more.

While the pans are getting hot clean and chop up the scallions – or onions – and put them in the medium heat extra virgin skillet and sprinkle with a little salt and pepper.

Stir or toss them a few times as they cook.

Salt and pepper the up side of the chicken breasts and put them in their skillet with the seasoned side down and then salt and pepper the new up side.

While it’s all cooking coarsely chop up the garlic and the sage leaves.

When the scallions just start to get translucent add the peas and the gnocchi. Spread it all out…. 

Easy Chicken Breast Recipe-4-poppopcooks.com-chicken breast recipes, chicken recipes, chicken breast, boneless chicken recipes, easy chicken recipes, recipes for chicken breasts

……and add enough chicken broth to just barely get up to the top of the gnocchi.

Turn the heat up to medium high until it starts to simmer then lower it to medium. Mix it all together and stir or toss it all a few more times and when the  gnocchi is okay to a nibble test it all is ready to serve.

If the chicken skillet is still busy just lower the heat as low as it can go so the veggies will keep warm.

Give  the chicken breasts about 3-5  minutes a side depending on the thickness. When they are leaking clear liquid and/or are firm to a finger poke or better yet if they read 165° on a meat thermometer they are done.

Remove them to a shallow bowl that will catch the drippings.

Put the butter, lemon juice with the rinds, sage and garlic into the chicken skillet. Using a wooden spoon stir it all together while scraping the bits left from the chicken off the bottom.

As soon as the garlic gets fragrant – about a minute – add the white wine and stir it all up.

Put the breast and the drippings back in the skillet to warm back up and spoon the liquid and the veggies over the breasts. Turn them over a couple of times through the process. 

You did great!! Some sage advice here – sorry – you and your honey really should finish that bottle of white wine while dining on the results of your easy chicken breast recipe.

One Pot Weeknight Chicken Dinner – Quick and Easy – 25 Minutes

One Pot Weeknight Supper-11-poppopcooks.com-chicken-chicken recipes-easy chicken recipes-one pot meals-chicken dishes-one pot

 One Pot Weeknight Chicken Dinner will be….

 ….real good on the weeknight that you make it and also the leftovers will be great as a lunch at work or as a “weeknight nuke it no brainer” on one of those nights when you just don’t feel like cooking.

One Pot Weeknight Supper-poppopcooks.com-chicken-chicken recipes-easy chicken recipes-one pot meals-chicken dishes-one pot

A lot of my readers are working moms and/or dads so I hope, no I’ll bet, that  this recipe helps.

It’s quick,  easy, and delish!

First get out your dishwasher safe cutting board and cut up the chicken. In the pursuit of quick and easy I just thawed out some tenders in the microwave and cut them into pieces.

Put a large skillet or sauté pan on at medium high and swirl in enough olive oil to coat the bottom. Put in the chicken pieces and stir them around a few times as they cook.

One Pot Weeknight Supper-2-poppopcooks.com-chicken-chicken recipes-easy chicken recipes-one pot meals-chicken dishes-one pot

When they have browned add the carrots, salt, pepper and dried basil.

One Pot Weeknight Supper-4-poppopcooks.com-chicken-chicken recipes-easy chicken recipes-one pot meals-chicken dishes-one pot

Mix it up a few times until the carrots just begin to get a little soft. I test them with a table fork.

Add the broth and let it come up to a fast simmer. Then…

One Pot Weeknight Supper-7-poppopcooks.com-chicken-chicken recipes-easy chicken recipes-one pot meals-chicken dishes-one pot

…..put in the gnocchi.  Stir a few more times until the gnocchi starts to float, 2-3 minutes. You could use cut up potatoes or some small piece pasta like penne or rigatoni instead of gnocchi. Just put it in at the same time as the broth.

One Pot Weeknight Supper-8-poppopcooks.com-chicken-chicken recipes-easy chicken recipes-one pot meals-chicken dishes-one pot

Then add the peas.

Mix the peas in and when broth starts to simmer again throw in the grated parmesan.

One Pot Weeknight Supper-10-poppopcooks.com-chicken-chicken recipes-easy chicken recipes-one pot meals-chicken dishes-one pot

Stir in the parmesan and it’s ready to enjoy! Top it off with a little more grated parmesan when you serve it.

One Pan Shrimp Dinner – 20 minutes – Quick and Easy Recipe

One Pan Shrimp Dinner-7-poppopcooks.com-onepot-quick and easy recipes

Your One Pan Shrimp Dinner……

………..will be done and on the table in 20 minutes and it,,is,,good! The shrimp and the gnocchi both cook so fast that it’ll be ready before you know it.

A couple of  tips to get started

  •  Frozen broccoli florets don’t have to cleaned or cut up so they help speed things along.  Peas are even faster.
  •  If you are using frozen shrimp just thaw them out in the microwave. It only takes a minute or 2 and get the ones that have already been peeled and deveined to make things even quicker.

Put a large skillet on at medium high. Swirl in enough olive oil to coat the bottom of the pan. Add the broccoli and the chopped garlic then squeeze some lemon juice in and toss in the rind. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook for a few minutes tossing a few times during the process. And……..

 One Pan Shrimp Dinner-poppopcooks.com-one pot-quick and easy-gluten free

………..when the broccoli just begins to wilt a little put in the shrimp and the gnocchi. Toss a few times as it all cooks together. 

One Pan Shrimp Dinner-4-poppopcooks.com-one pot-quick and easy

When the shrimp start to turn pink add the white wine and ……….

Then serve up and enjoy your One Pan Shrimp Dinner and the rest of that wine!

Wow! Do you think we just set a record for a quick and easy weeknight meal?
