What’s For Dinner? Sage and Rosemary Chicken

Sage and Rosemary Chicken Breast with rosemary potatoes and green beans with almonds.

One thing I love about cooking is trying recipes. What I love even more is finding recipes that are simple to make and that look very tasty. In fact, tasty is a dealbreaker for me. When I saw the Sage and Rosemary Chicken Strips recipe on the Pillsbury site, I knew I had to try it. We had a package of chicken breasts to make dinner and I was looking for an easy recipe to make online with ingredients that I already had at home.

Although the recipe called for cutting the chicken into strips, I decided to cook the breasts and instead pound them a bit to slim them down. I followed the rest of the preparation and cooking directions. The recipe truly was easy to make. The most work entailed getting the ingredients in a bowl to mix.

When I was done, I had a chicken with a lightly crispy outside and a very tender inside. I was very impressed! The chicken was also very tasty. It was a milder taste–not bland–and definitely worthy of making again.

If you are looking for a quick and tasty dinner entree, I highly recommend it!

Below are the ingredients and steps copied from the Pillsbury website.

INGREDIENTS
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary leaves, crushed
1/8 teaspoon ground sage
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cut into long, thin strips
1 tablespoon oil

STEPS
1. In shallow bowl, combine flour, onion powder, salt, rosemary and sage; mix well. Generously coat chicken pieces with flour mixture.

2. Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add chicken; reduce heat to medium. Cook and stir 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned on all sides and no longer pink.

When nearly done, the chicken appears like it is very crispy, but it is actually just lightly crispy.
