HP Chicken and Roasted Veggies

Exclusive Michelle-Meals time-saving tip: nap while roasting veggies. It takes about 30 minutes to roast vegetables in the oven, and 20 of those can be spent in blissful cat-nap heaven. As soon as you wake up, toss the veggies to redistribute in the pan. In the last minute or two, put them under the broiler.

Today's veggies were some old dying peppers from the fridge, and broccoli, seasoned with salt and pepper and lemon pepper.

I pan-fried the chicken on medium heat -- a few minutes on each side, then covered and cooked on medium-low for another several minutes. It was the first time I've pan-fried chicken and it didn't turn out completely dry. The lid is the secret. The chicken was seasoned with salt and pepper and this Porcini Mushrooms & Parsley spice grinder that I picked up from the butcher along with my chicken and broccoli. I thought I had BBQ sauce but it turned out to be HP Sauce but I still threw it on at the end. And it was good.

Enough time between 5:30 and 7pm to cook, nap, eat, get ready and go out. It can be done! Of course the kitchen is a mess. You can't have everything.
