Hello again, and welcome back!  Thank you for joining me on this adventure!!  🙂

I have to say, tonight’s meal was REALLY good!  Everyone got something they liked, the main dish was a nice surprise for some (William, of course), and the sides were really easy PLUS yummy.  So here was our menu:

Lemon Herb Chicken

4-5 boneless skinless chicken breasts

1 carton chicken broth (Great Value brand, of course)

3 cloves garlic, minced (or 3 Tbsp minced bottled garlic)

3 Tbsp olive oil

1 Tsp salt

1 Tsp pepper

1 Tsp rosemary, dried

1 Tsp Thyme, dried

1/4 cup lemon juice

3 Tbsp soy sauce

Put everything in a crock pot, cook on LOW 7-8 hours.

Turn off the heat, and remove about 2 cups of the broth, straining it before you put it in a sauce pan.  Mix 3-4 Tbsp corn starch with 1/2 cup cold water, and add this mixture to the strained broth.  Bring to a simmer, stirring and cooking until sauce is thickened.  Remove chicken from pot, place on serving platter, serve with sauce on the side.

We also had Kraft Mac N Cheese (because I scored two free boxes from their Facebook page a couple weeks ago), frozen broccoli (PictSweet brand, was actually pretty good for frozen, not mushy), and peas.

All in all, a good meal!

Until tomorrow friends, eat well, love well, live well!!
