My lack of wanting to put forth culinary efforts, instead of becoming a hindrance, has instead enabled me to create the easiest meal prep method for chicken by far, that looks and tastes so good, you won't believe it's not gourmet! Without further a-due, I introduce you to the broiling method of cooking chicken, a.k.a my No Grill "Grilled" Chicken, Italian Herbed Style. And before turn your nose up at the thought of broiling chicken, feast your eyes on this:
Italian Herbed Chicken
Chicken Breasts (make as many as you want, I made a batch of four breasts)
McCormick's Salt Free Garlic and Herb Seasoning
Basil Leaves (dried, from a spice container)
Oil of your choice (Spray or actual Olive Oil)
1. Cut defrosted chicken into chunks/bites/strips, whatever size you like best
2. Turn over broiler to high
3. Line a broil pan/baking sheet with aluminum foil, spray/rub with a bit of oil
4. Add chicken to pan, coat chicken with Garlic and Herb Seasoning, then Basil Leaves
7. Broil for seven minutes, flip over, broil another five minutes
(cooking time can be a total of 10 minutes, no flip, but I like my chicken crispy!)
- Add crushed red pepper flakes for some heat
- Add onion powder
- Cooking time may need to be adjusted based on the strength of your broiler and how much chicken you're making
- When chunking/cutting up your chicken, aim for even sized pieces to prevent the chicken cooking unevenly and drying out
- Italian Spaghetti Squash Skillet
- Use chicken on top of a salad
- Italian Quinoa Bowl, add roasted red peppers or tomatoes
- Served in a pita/wrap/etc
- Add to your favorite noodle with sauce
Don't have this on hand? Make your own, McCormick's blend is: Garlic, Spices (Including Oregano, Rosemary, Basil, And Red Pepper), Orange Peel, Onion, Paprika, And Celery.
