We both loved the chicken breasts stuffed with fresh spinach, caramelized onions,
and vegetable cream cheese,
The husband thinks he has died and gone to heaven as this is the second weekend in a row that I have stayed home and engaged in the domestic arts. Don't tell him, but I love to do that on snowy winter weekends (he may start thinking I should stay home every weekend--my natural inclination is to get away every weekend that I can. It's my reward for still having to work after reaching the age of the 1974 Emergency Highway Energy Conservation Act speed limit).
I did not use a recipe for tonight's dinner, but for those of you interested, I can give you a basic idea of what I did.
I used Yukon Gold potatoes for the 'Potatoes Anna'. I sliced the small potatoes with the skins on using a food processor.
I melted about half a stick of butter and after arranging the slices in a deep glass pie plate, I drizzled butter, salt, pepper, and dried basil over the potatoes. I made 4 layers and then put them in a 400 degree oven for about an hour.
I cooked the potatoes before the chicken and put them back in the oven just to reheat once the chicken was almost finished baking.
I put the chicken breasts between two pieces of Saran wrap and whacked them a few times with a metal mallet to thin them out.
approx. 1 cup half 'n half
leftover spinach/onion mixture- maybe 2 tablespoons
leftover vegetable cheese - maybe 1/4 cup
I mixed it all together and brought it to a boil, stirring constantly. I let it boil lightly for about one minute, then turned it off and added freshly ground pepper.
I must say this was a good meal! I cooked enough so we can have leftovers on Monday. We can't wait to enjoy it all over again.
