Yum Number Two

Okay, I've already been on-line far longer than I planned to this evening, so I am going to make this quick.

I had another awesome meal tonight, and wanted to share it with you. I am not sure what to call it, but Chicken Spaghetti Parmegiana comes to mind...

1 Tbsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 onion, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
1 head broccoli, chopped
1/2 cup cauliflower, chopped
1/2 cup marinara or spaghetti sauce
1/2 cup spaghetti pasta noodles

In heated pan on medium, warm olive oil, then throw in minced garlic, chopped onion, and celery. Heat until limp or carmelized (your choice). Throw in broccoli and cauliflower, heat approx. 5 minutes, then toss mixture with spaghetti sauce. Put heat on low, add a little water if necessary, and simmer. Meanwhile, make your spaghetti noodles (or heat if they're done and cold from the fridge, which mine were). While all that is happening, finish the recipe by using these ingredients:

1 3 oz chicken breast, tenderized well
1/2 cup cornmeal
1/4 cup bread crumbs
Seasonings, such as Mrs. Dash, Rosemary, Oregano, Garlic Powder, Parmesan cheese, pepper, Italian seasoning, to taste (I didn't measure any of it, in other words)
1 tbsp olive oil

In a separate heated pan, heat olive oil. Mix cornmeal, breadcrumbs, and seasonings in pie pan. Tenderize chicken by pounding on it (or have the big rat do it--- sorry, daughter's been into "Ratatouille" lately). Bread chicken in pie pan, then place into heated pan. Cook approximately 5-7 minutes (or until no longer pink in the middle).

Place on plate in order of: noodles, chicken, then sauce. Then enjoy!

This recipe is probably a little high in fat, but at least it's the good kind. AND I got about 4-5 servings of vegetables in. I call that a good recipe.

And yes, I did pretty much make it off the top of my head, but Eating for Life and the Kraft Parmesan Cheese adverts taught me how to make the chicken once upon a time...
