When I was a kid, my mom always told me to eat my vegetables and I’d usually dump them in the trash or feed them to my cat. I think if the vegetables that were served as a kid were dressed up and had more flavor, I would have been more open to eating them. I still have to dress up my vegetables in order to eat them.
A couple nights ago, I made chicken over kale. I’ve been creating a love for kale lately. I went a little overboard on the greens, but my mom would have been proud.
I massaged the kale in garlic olive oil and let it sit for an hour. I seasoned the kale with garlic and herb and baked it in the oven at 350 degrees until the kale was crisp.
In a small mixing bowl, I combined 2 tbsps of peach jelly, 1 tbsp hot sauce, 1/2 tbsp of brown sugar, and 1 tsp garlic and herb seasoning together. I topped a 5 oz chicken breast with the mixture and baked it in the oven at 350 degrees for about 18 minutes.
I had some leftover lettuce and peas that I needed to get rid of, so I mixed them with a vinaigrette for a side.
Since I was on a green kick, I added steamed broccoli with parmesan and mozzarella to the meal.
What is your favorite vegetable and how do you flavor it?!
