Grilled Chicken, Sauteed Zucchini with Mushrooms, and Avocado Salad
Sometimes it's all about the sides!!! I had NO ideas for dinner tonight as my attentions were elsewhere. It was the first day back to school (and the beginning of a new era as my kids just started middle school AND high school). Anyway... dinner was the last thing on my mind. I just wanted something easy! Simply grilled chicken fit the bill... albeit a little boring. But maybe I could spruce up the side dishes, and it could look more interesting? Falsely elude that I put a lot of effort into tonight's dinner? Yea... that was the trick! Hope you enjoy. :-)
Season 4 chicken breasts with:
sea salt, pepper, chili pepper, garlic powder, paprika and cumin
Grill to desired doneness!
Sauteed Zucchini & Mushrooms:
2 zucchini's, sliced
9oz. sliced mushrooms
1/2 yellow onion, thinly sliced
2 tsp. olive oil
1/4 C chicken broth
Heat oil in skillet and saute onions. When onions start to caramelize, add mushrooms. Saute for about 3-5 more minutes. Add zucchini and broth. Cover and cook until zucchini is just tender (about 5-6 minutes). Season with a little fresh ground black pepper.
1 avocado, cubed
1 C cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
1/4 sweet onion, thinly sliced
1 T balsamic vinegar
Course sea salt and fresh round black pepper.
Combine all ingredients and serve! :-)
