I love grabbing an ingredient or two and creating a meal around them - a la "Chopped."
Last night I was inspired by chicken and a jar of peanut satay sauce. In addition to the chicken and peanut sauce, I used the following "on hand" ingredients:
Dried minced onions
"Pride of Szeged" Chicken Rub
"A Taste of Thai" Peanut Satay Sauce
Sliced green onions
Precooked, bagged brown rice
Add some dill, minced onion, and garlic powder to Greek yogurt. Let sit in refrigerator.
Heat a pan with EVOO. Add 2 chicken breasts that have been liberally coated with pepper, celery salt, garlic powder, chili powder, and some "Pride of Szeged" Chicken Rub.
Sear both sides of the chicken then add a chicken broth and several spoonfuls of the peanut satay sauce. Cover and let simmer until chicken is almost done.
Heat precooked bagged brown rice in microwave.
Add sliced green onion to the chicken for the last minute or two of cooking.
Serve chicken with sauce over rice and put some of the yogurt mixture on the side.
Enjoyed some really good food while the window replacement salesman measured all our windows. Even he couldn't resist and ended up eating a plateful.
This is a keeper.
