In keeping with our plan to empty the freezer and eat as many strawberry dishes as we can, we had a recipe I’d saved from Lea Ann over at Mangos Chili and Z. I made up the dressing early per her recipe and seasoned the chicken with some Wolfe Citrus Rub about 1pm. I suggested to Bev that she buy a nice spring greens mix, but she thought the romain and baby spinach we had on hand would work fine. Can you believe it, about 2pm our neighbor showed up at the door with two bags of fresh picked leaf lettuce – the perfect addition to our dinner salad. I quickly got it in cold water, then washed it and put it on a towel to dry a little before I stuck it in the frig.
I like that she’s taking pity on me since I’m not growing anything but a few tomatoes and peppers this year.
Just as Lea Ann did, I lightly coated the chicken in flour and sautéed it in olive oil on all sides to an internal temp of 170*. Bev pre-dressed the lettuce, including S&P, and put it on the plates, then we put the other ingredients on top. My pic isn’t as pretty as Lea Ann's – what do you expect, I’m a big clumsy guy – and I forgot the raisins on mine.
Thanks Lea Ann and now it’s back to the berry patch.
I mowed yesterday and the grass is already suffering from drought stress - never happens in May. It got dark and windy in the early evening and I could seen lots of rain on the radar just west of us (4-5 inches in some places), but we barely got enough to wet the driveway.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.
