Apparently I forgot to post yesterday so today is a two-fer.
My classic chicken dinner is always served with butternut squash, rutabaga, or potato mash. Sometimes, like Monday night, it is a combination because I don’t have enough of any one thing. I cooked the butternut squash and potatoes in the Instant Pot for 15 minutes and they always come out totally mashable. They are so tender that I can mash them with a fork easily.
The chicken comes from a Costco rotisserie chicken. We have decided it is such a good deal ($4.99!) that we will always buy one when we go to Costco. Once home I take the chicken apart for use during the next few days and I even make chicken stock out of the carcass. Yum, chicken vegetable soup! I think I will have it for lunch today.
Broccoli is always the vegetable of choice for Classic Chicken Dinner. We also made gravy from a packet of chicken gravy mix by McCormack.
John and I enjoy the mild taste of tilapia for our open-faced sandwich. While John cooks the fish I make a tartar sauce from mayo, relish, capers, yellow mustard, grated onion, a squeeze of lemon, and a squirt of sriracha. The bread component is an Artesano sausage roll that I toasted. For salad tonight I used a Taylor Farms pre-packaged chopped steakhouse wedge that comes with croutons, bacon bits, and a blue cheese dressing. Easy, tasty dinner!
