I expected tonight’s post to turn into one of those “I tried cooking and failed so spectacularly it was really a win” posts. But actually, my dinner turned out really well. No thanks to me.
Aldi has these seasoned, uncooked, boneless, skinless chicken breasts that you heat up in the oven. Steps include “put in pan” and “bake for 15 minutes.” You think ‘how hard can that be?’ I think, ‘That’s what I said about asparagus. And look how that turned out.’
But actually this turned out really well. I probably overcooked it because I was paranoid about raw chicken but even that didn’t harm it too much. A little over-seasoned, maybe, but more flavor than my cooking usually brings. I paired with garlic naan bread (from Aldi) and hummus (also from Aldi) and it ended up really yummy.
If you’ve seen this and been on the fence about it because it looks like a weird, mushy mess…well, it is worth it! I recommend pairing with $3 wine from Aldi because that is the best deal on the planet.
Thanks, Mom, for buying me groceries and tolerating my weird experiments! This one was actually a success.
