Back of the Cupboard Delight

Happy Sleepy Doggy

Sometimes I think the only reason I married Taylor was to get 24/7 access to his adorable dog.

On Wednesday night I made some experimental back-of-the-cupboard-delight* chicken for dinner and I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out.

*BotCD refers to meals prepared with whatever random ingredients you happen to find in the back of your cupboard or fridge as opposed to using a real recipe. In this case it was this lemon pepper seasoning, lime juice (because I used up all my lemon juice), and ground ginger (because ginger goes nicely with lime but I was too lazy to go out and buy fresh ginger).
Complicated Ingredients

This might have been even more delicious if I mixed all this stuff together first but that’s not really my cooking style. I just put 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts in my hideously stained Pyrex dish, and ground/poured/sprinkled everything on it. This method also has the bonus of using exactly one dish. Then I cooked at at like 450°F for 45 minutes or so.
Ew Raw Chicken

I let Sym choose the side dish so I ended up serving this with a leafless salad: cut up veggies but no lettuce. That’s healthy, right/ This is the perfect amount for the three of us- Taylor and I each get a breast and I just pull the little fillet parts off for Sym.
