Home Chef meal #1

Tonight’s meal was “Ditalini Chicken Caesar Salad with Parmesan Croutons.” The ingredients were chicken breasts, ditalini pasta, baguette, romaine lettuce, roma tomato, grated parmesan cheese, garlic, mayonnaise, and white wine vinegar.

On first glance, the poor tomato was so pale and tasteless. Tomatoes aren’t supposed to go into the refrigerator, because it makes them bland. So full disclosure, I used tomatoes I had on hand instead of the one in the package.

The preparation was easy. Neither my hubby nor I am a gourmet chef (or even good home cooks), but the instructions were easy peasy. The chicken breasts were pan-fried, which we never do at our house because the hubby prefers to grill everything. We opted to try the pan frying though and it was pretty good.

I don’t like mayonnaise (Picky Point #1). I was planning on skipping the mayo for my portion of the meal, but the hubby told me it was defeating the purpose of expanding our culinary palate. I made the meal as instructed (with the exception of using my own tomatoes), and loved it.

The portions were bigger than I expected. Dinner was done in about 30 minutes.
