A last minute decision to make dinner had me heading to the grocery store after work. I had already picked out some recipes so before leaving work, I pulled up this recipe for sauteed chicken with corn and edamame from Real Simple.
While we were on the phone she said "I can tell you're getting addicted to having your dinners." I think she's right. There are some nights when all I want is a homemade dinner and the challenge of making it myself. And then there are nights when all I want is someone to make it for me.
I'm pretty terrible at cooking chicken, but I'm starting to know when it's done without having to slice it open. I still slice it to check, just in case. When the chicken came out of the oven it was moist, juicy, and perfectly done.
Cooking bacon was interesting. For this recipe, the bacon needed to be crispy so that I could easily crumble it. I definitely burnt it a little, but with it being bacon bits you really couldn't taste that. The recipe called for 4 ounces of bacon. How much is four ounces? I had no clue, so I used three strips. The bacon was so good with the corn and edamame that I wish I would have use more strips. It was soooo good.
This meal was very good and, other than adding more bacon, I wouldn't change a thing!
