Cooking is being creative with food. It's experimenting with what pairs well together, what flavors complement others and how much of one taste you prefer. The only way to really figure this out is to try yourself. Look what you have in your house already and find some inspiration for a satisfying wholesome meal. Tonight my ingredients were:
How I could combine these ingredients and add a few from the fridge was the task for dinner. I came up with ...
Mushroom and Swiss Chard Stuffed Chicken over Sweet Potato Brussel Sprout Hash
Chicken Roll Up:
Pound chicken breasts until less than 1/2 inch thick. Lay a large leaf of swiss chard to cover the chicken. Sprinkle cheese blend of your choice (I used mozzarella and asiago). Slice mushrooms and spread them out on top. Tuck one end of the chicken under tightly to begin rolling. Push all the stuffings under and in so everything is packed tightly. Stick two toothpicks through each side to keep together during cooking.
Egg wash the outside of each roll up and sprinkle with panko crumbs. Heat butter and oil in a big pan and add roll ups. Cook each side through till brown, rotating 3-4 times.
Preheat oven to 450.
Cut sweet potatoes in 1/2 pieces.
Cut brussel sprouts so they are leafy and piecey.
Finely chop 3 garlic cloves.
Mix together with almond oil, sprinkle salt and brown sugar.
Bake in oven for about 40 mins. Until brown and slightly crispy.
Plate and Enjoy!! Mmm!
