I have some chicken breasts thawing but am feeling uninspired. I had been thinking of grilling them but we're supposed to be getting storms on and off all afternoon and evening so I need to come up with something to make indoors that won't heat the house up too much. Hmmmm.....I think the easiest answer for me would be ordering a pizza!

Pa, my kids like what they call Chinese chicken we serve it over white rice. It cooks in a skillet about 35-45 minutes, but I've done it in the morning then re-heated..Another one is to do a picatta and serve with the picatta sauce, which I make extra of over angel hair pasta..You could do the chicken early and make a chicken rice salad,or do the chciken in bite size pieces with mushrooms, olives, onions,garlic thyme a slice or 4 of bacon.a little butter,beef stock a little white wine and eat as a stew with a green salad and some bread or rolls. I'm not to quick on my feet this morning..Hope this helps.

Since we are going to the beach tomorrow for a few days, I'm going to use up some stuff in the fridge. We will have a ham steak, steamed rice, zuchinni and tomatoes, and broccoli slaw, probably cantelope for dessert.

I just went to the market yesterday and bought some delicious foods - however, for me, dinner takes thought and prep - both of which I had no time for today. Soooooo, dinner will be chili and some cornbread. Easy but still good.

We're trying out a new recipe tonight...a much simplified version of Chicken Cordon Bleu. The ham and Swiss cheese go directly into the sauce, which you pour over the browned chicken. It calls for boneles chicken breasts, but I have bone-in breasts and thighs, so I think I'll finish it off in the oven.

Since neither Kim or I have had the real thing, we may like it. If we do, I know Kim's going to want to try the traditional recipe.
