Savory Chicken and Potatoes..
This diet thing isn't so bad right? I love my George Foreman grill. It's one of the best purchases towards kitchen stuff I have ever made. I got it at a Black Friday sale, so the price was right! This thing didn't disappoint me tonight. I wanted chicken badly tonight but I wanted a healthy recipe. I remember a month or so back when Katie from Good Things Catered made grilled chicken and since grilled chicken is as diet friendly s it comes, I decided to give this recipe a go. I ended up doubling the recipe and making some substitutions for a couple things. This chicken, let me tell you, was sooo moist, tender and savory (and easy to boot!!). Thanks Katie for a great recipe!!
1 pack chicken breasts
2 Tbsp olive oil
3 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp garlic salt
1/2 tsp coarsely ground pepper
Montreal Chicken seasoning
Preheat the Foreman grill. Mix olive oil, vinegar, garlic salt and pepper together in a bowl. Pound chicken down to about 1/2 - 3/4 in. thick to tenderize and make the chicken faster to grill. Dip chicken in mixture on both sides, and place chicken on the grill (for me, one piece fit at a time. Then, sprinkle the Montreal seasoning on top of the chicken and put the grill top down. Grill for 5 minutes, or until done. Repeat for the rest of the chicken.
Yum! Time for my closeup!
And just one more stab to make sure it's still indeed dead!

Now, onto another easy dish, which is a favorite of mine. This is off the Lipton Onion Soup mix box. I made oven roasted potatoes. Here is the recipe...never fails and once again, easy and good!
1 pack Onion Soup mix
1/3 cup olive oil
5-6 medium Yukon Gold potatoes (use whatever potatoes you want...these are just my favs)
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Cut the potatoes into 4-6 pieces (depending on potato size) and place in a 9x13 baking dish. Drizzle olive oil and soup mix on top and mix together (best done with hands I find!). Place in oven for about 30 minutes or until done. YUM!
Zoom in of that starchy goodness!
I could just sit with a fork and eat it all!! Can't wait for lunch tomorrow now :)
