Thnings are finally settling back to normal, and normal for me is cooking dinner almost every night. Tonight was a wonderful simple but yummy dinner. I actually made it to the gym today so I thought I would try to cook a healthy dinner, the plan was going well untill I found the asparagus in my fridge. Immediatley I could taste hollandaise sauce in my mouth and I started drooling. So of course I went for it and decided since I was not going to cook a starch it was ok. Got love the BUTTER!!!
Here is the simple but yummy dinner we had tonight:
2 chicken breasts
1 cup of hot sauce (I used El Pato Red sauce)
1 cup of italian dressing
2 garlic cloves grated
salt and pepper
In a ziplock bag add the chicken and all of the ingredients above. Marinate for 30 min. Then grill 25-30 minutes untill juices run clear from the chicken.
Asparagus with Garlic Hollandaise Sauce:
1bunch of asparagus (with the ends trimmed off)
1 stick of butter
1garlic clove grated
1 tsp pepper
Juice of 1 lemon
2 egg yolks
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add asparagus to water and boil for 5 min. Remove asaparagus and place in a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking.
While the asparagus cools, add the stick of butter into a sauce pan, add the grated garlic and pepper also, melt over med low heat. Once melted whisk in the egg yolks and lemon juice. Continue to whisk about 3-5 min over med heat untill sauce has thickened.
Place the aspargus on a plate and drizzle the garlic hollandaise sauce over the top!
We had both the chicken and aspargus with a nice salad. It was a great meal, not to heavy but still very filling!
