This is one of the most simple and most healthy recipies we have done so far..and pretty much all of our recipes are simple and healthy. Westin cooked this one; the recipe is courtesy of allrecipes.com.
Before we begin, I have a special message for those of you who are already crying in your chairs, "I don't like mushrooms!" My message is this:
But seriously. Assuming that all mushrooms taste the same all the time is like assuming Lindsey Lohan has always been a high-strung crack-addict..it's simply not true. She didn't start until she was 9. That being said, there are a LOT of mushrooms in this recipe.
If you're really freaking out, just make it without the mushrooms, and this recipe will still be a ridiculously simple, but tasty way to bake your chicken. (Get it..baked..Lindsey Lohan..)
To begin this crack-free recipe, you'll need this stuff:
4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
2 cloves crushed garlic
3 tablespoons olive oil
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 chopped green onion
1 8 oz package fresh mushrooms (sliced)
4 slices Swiss cheese
Ignore the cajun seasoning in the picture.
I decided not to use it.
Once you've chopped your green onion and sliced your mushrooms, do this:
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Combine oil and garlic in a 9x13 inch baking dish. Add chicken breasts and coat well with the oil and garlic. Sprinkle with the vinegar.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
- Remove chicken from oven and cover with green onion and mushrooms; then add a few more sprinkles of oil and vinegar and return dish to oven for 10-15 minutes more. Remove from oven and immediately place 1 slice of cheese on top of each chicken breast; cheese will melt. Serve immediately.
THAT'S IT. Ohmahgawsh it's so easy. Enjoy! When you're done, it should look something like this:
Cost of this meal per serving: I don't remember, but less than a gram of crack, I bet.
Status of Basil plant: Flourishing, but slightly bored.
