Our second Blue Apron meal was delicious this week. Oven Friend Chicken with Sauteed Green Beans and Corn really hit the spot and even David agreed that it was quite good! With two of our three meals digested, we are really really thinking about joining Blue Apron during this first year of new parenthood. Because, even though I can get the recipes from the service online, can I get all the ingredients for the price Blue Apron is offering, that is the question! David and I will try this week to buy three meals worth of ingredients for these Blue Apron recipes and see what it costs us from a regular grocery store. Anyway, back to cooking this meal. While Henry napped in his mamaroo, I cooked up this meal in 20 minutes. I seriously cannot believe how easy this company has made dinner time. Yes, I cooked it at 3PM and then let it sit on the oven until David got home and we reheated it for dinner, but it is the small victories in life as a new mom that matter! This meal will definitely join our meal rotation since it was super flavorful, easy, and the quick quick quick.
5 Ounces Green Beans
2 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
2 Ears Corn
1 Bunch Basil
1 Clove Garlic
1 1/2 Cups Panko Breadcrumbs
1 Cup Buttermilk
2 Teaspoon Fried Chicken Spice Blend (Smoked Paprika & Garlic Powder)
1 Tablespoon Butter
1 Mini Bottle Tabasco Hot Sauce
Preheat the oven at 450. Cut the chicken breast into three equal pieces. Dip the chicken in the buttermilk and then roll in the panko breadcrumbs and spices (which you should blend together in a little bowl). Place the breaded chicken on a lined baking sheet. Bake for about 15-20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the breadcrumbs have browned. Meanwhile, in a pan on the stove, melt the butter and add a tablespoon of olive oil and saute the green beans (which you should cut into 2 inch pieces). Once the beans are a bright green, about 2-3 minutes, add the corn kernels that you removed from the cob, juice of half the lemon, salt, pepper, and basil. Saute all together for another 2 minutes. Add a 1/4 cup of water to thicken the mixture. Then plate the sauteed vegggies and top with the delicious chicken. They recommend adding Tabasco sauce to taste on the chicken but I skipped this part and it tasted fine.
