There are days when I stare at the fridge and in this case the chicken breasts we bought. I am convinced they stare right back and laugh at me. That’s when I grill them with Herbes de Provence and leave them until inspiration hits.
I remember how I hated chicken breast because it would always turn out super dry. I was scared to not cook them long enough and since there is no medium rare in chicken…..I cooked it to death and dried it for so long that it turned a bit too dark on the outside if you get the drift.
So what I do now is that I fry it in the pan so that it gets a nice colour, cover it and finish it in the oven. Clever, ey? I bet you already knew all about it and I am just the last person to discover it.
What to do with 2 chicken breasts? We love to slice it and eat it on a sandwich with some lemon mayonaise. All you need to do is get some of your favourite brand out. In my case it is Miracle Whip with Yoghurt because we grew up with it in Germany and did not know Hellman’s or any other brand. Then zest a lemon and add a bit of lemon juice to the majonaise and season to taste. I promise you it is so much better then just spreading the no-taste mayonaise on. If I am wrong and you don’t like it, you are welcome to come over and I give you a cookie instead 🙂
