Sometimes, I get lazy.
...okay, a lot of times I get lazy...
...and after waking up early, working all day and then going to the gym, I don't really feel like making dinner.
But a bitch gotta eat! ( and Nate... )
Chicken is a staple in our house and we eat it quite frequently, so sometimes it's hard to come up with "new" ways to make it. So in turn, I get creative ( and...lazy ) Then we get things like this:
( looks pretty good, right? )
This is what it is:
I had chicken marinating in teriyaki for, like, a day a half. Grandma ended up having dinner one day during the week, so chicken took the back burner. Usually when I don't have a specific meal planned, I just throw chicken breasts in a Tupperware with some kind of marinade ( Aldi usually has some good ones for less than a $1 a bottle! ) So I thought, "What can I throw in with this chicken to use for a *side*?"
Well, Doc gave me a bunch of jalapenos, green peppers and chili from his garden. I decided that since I like green peppers and Nate likes jalapeno, that I would just throw all of that under the chicken ( with some onion for good measure ) Threw that sucka in the oven on 425* for about 30 minutes ( covered ) and there you have it!
...I didn't realize how much the jalapeno was going to taint everything else. Because holy shit were the vegetables SPICY! Also, after making it, the chicken should have been on the bottom because ALL the juice from the chicken went downward and none of the chicken got jalapeno flavor.
Yes!...I know I mixed Asian with Mexican...but this was all just thrown together, okay?!
I think I made rice or something on the side, but for an impromptu healthier dinner, it wasn't half bad.
It's better than Ramen noodles!!! LOL!
