In an effort to save money, I've started cooking again instead of going out all the time. I love to cook, but I also love the convenience of just running to the deli for a sandwich when I come home from work. So for this to work, the recipes have to be simple and fast.
Today I had to get to the office very early (about two hours earlier than I normally drag my ass into work). Since I was paranoid about oversleeping (and had been having bad dreams so I couldn't really sleep anyway) I woke up much earlier than normal. Finding myself with some free time, I cooked lunch/dinner for the week. Here it is, a recipe from the Barefoot Countessa, modified by Crash.
4 split Chicken Breasts, bone-in with skin
1 7 oz. stick of dill goat cheese
4 Basil leaves
Peel back the skin from the chicken breasts, insert two fairly thick pieces of goat cheese and a basil leaf under the skin. Drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake on a baking sheet for 35-40 min. at 375°.
I haven't tasted the chicken yet (lunch is still an hour away), but it smelled amazing.
Tonight when I get home, I'm planning to make hummus. If I do, I'll post the recipe tomorrow.
