Well I found my creative dinner hat over the weekend!
I had chicken, I had pearled couscous, some Zesty Italian Dressing, some carrots and a can of diced tomatoes. (tangent: You can a lot about a person by their appreciation, or lack thereof, for couscous)
So I cut up the carrots and the chicken; seasoned the chicken with salt and pepper and some teeth-sticking herbs.
Then I pan-fried the chicken on both sides and added in the diced carrots and tomatoes and dressing. I covered it and simmered it while I made the pearled couscous (from a box).
I scooped the chicken mixture onto the couscous and added a bit more dressing and voila!
The best part was that my husband really liked it and even liked the way my picture showed the juicy texture of the tomatoes. So I felt very good about this experimental meal and will add it to my menu.
