Chicken with chimichurri, broccoli, and rice

leave a comment »

Made Mahatma Spanish rice straight out of a package. Roasted broccoli in one pan, and layered raw chicken breasts on chopped onions with a drizzle of EVOO in another pan, and roasted all till the chicken was cooked through.

Also made chimichurri: a bunch of fresh cilantro and parsley, about 1/8 red onion, 1-2 cloves garlic, EVOO and walnut oil, a handful of walnuts, salt and pepper, dried oregano, and lime juice all blended together in the food processor.

Ate the rice, chicken, and broccoli with chimichurri.

For dessert, I made a blackcurrant mousse that was a bit too strong: 1 small container whipped cream, 1 package frozen blackcurrants simmered with vanilla and pressed through a strainer, 1/2 cup sugar, 1 package gelatin, juice and zest of 1 lemon.

Also made guacamole for Kathryn’s guac-off party. Avocados, lime juice and zest, salt, cilantro, red onion. Keeping it simple! The winning guacamole had basil in it. Tim made one that involved roasted avocados, tomatillos, chipotles, caramelized onions…
