What's for Dinner Wednesday.

I want to apologize up front for the lack of photos to go with this post. I feel like I am missing my right arm, I have missed place my battery charger for my camera!

Ok back to dinner.

Mashed Potatoes Stuffed Chicken Breast w/ Oven Roasted Broccoli.

4 Chicken Breast {bone in with skin}
Mash Potatoes {I normally use a package of the Idaho Baby Reds}
1 Lemon
2 Tbsp Butter
2 Tbsp of Parsley
1 Package of Broccoli
Olive Oil {for drizzling}
Salt and Pepper

Preheat the oven to 375. Cook the mash potatoes, add grated peel from the lemon. Take your chicken breast and separate the skin from the breast {simply stick your fingers between them}. Take the mash potatoes and stuff it under the skin, fill them up {you can get a good amount in there}. Place in a baking dish skin side up. Drizzle with olive oil and the season the salt and pepper. Bake for 45 mins.

Take the chicken out of the dish. Add the butter, lemon juice from the lemon, and parsley to the baking dish. Stir as the butter melts. Then drizzle the mixture over the chicken as you plate it.

Take the broccoli and spread it out over a lined baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper {I normally toss with my hands.} Bake for around 15-20 mins at 375, just until the broccoli gets crispy brown {this is my families favorite way to eat broccoli}!
