What we ate Wednesday. May 24th

It's Wednesday, aka FOODday.
Are you ready to link up?
I sure hope so.
Here is my recipe to share.

Mash Potato Stuffed Chicken with Lemon Parsley Sauce

Here is what you will need:
- chicken breast one per person {bone in}
- 1 lemon
- 1 tbsp parsley {I like the tube kind over fresh}
- mashed potato {one pack can stuff 4 breast}
- 2 tbsp room temp butter
- salt and pepper

Preheat the oven to 400. Make potatoes per bag instructions.

While potatoes cook zest the lemon, it should be around 1tsp. Once potatoes are cooked add the zest and mix.
*warning if you are chicken squeamish you may want to look away for the next three steps*

Carefully separate the skin from the breast, making sure not to make too big a hole.

With a spatula start stuffing the potatoes between the skin and the breast.

Smooth it towards the back as you go, until they are nice and filled.

And before they go in the oven drizzle with a little olive oil, rub it over the breast, and then season with salt and pepper. Bake for 40-50 mins.

Remove the chicken right away from the pan but leave the pan juices. Add the butter, parsley, and the juice from half the lemon. Whisk until forms a thickened sauce.
Plate the chicken and top with the sauce.

We ate ours with some oven roasted asparagus.
Yum to a BIG FAT O.

You had me at "mash". I've never met a mash I didn't like. Trying this next week. We had roasted asparagus the other night and I ate almost all of it. SO GOOD.

It's also gluten and egg and peanut free - a winning combination at our home!
