Inspired by a friend who posts photos of the food she makes on Facebook, I decided to come up with another series on this blog - My Own Chow. Basically, I'll be writing about my forays in the kitchen.
I've always liked to cook, but the past year hasn't exactly been conducive to spending time in the kitchen. After the surgery, I have been experiencing digestion problems. I guess it's nothing new, but I have to be more careful of what I eat these days. The good thing about making my own chow is that I have more control over what goes into my food - not much need to worry about the best slimming pills now as I really can't use much fat and oil. Otherwise...never mind, TMI.
One thing you ought to know (if you don't already) is that I am a carnivore to the core. I love my steak and can't get enough of it. Thing is, I can't really eat that - for now. So I am having to come up with all sorts of dishes with only fish and chicken. I can't believe I am saying this but I AM SICK OF CHICKEN!
Even this baked chicken didn't really make me feel any better.
It tasted decent enough and was easy to make, but I think I just had had too much chicken at that point.
Anyway, how'd I come up with the meal?
I simply got a chicken breast, rubbed it with salt, pepper, and dried thyme. I did the same with the sliced taties, minus the thyme. I then drizzled the stuff with olive oil (which I really shouldn't have) and stuck everything in a baking pan. Forty minutes of baking, and the only thing that really gave me pleasure was the crispy skin (which I shouldn't be eating).
