Saturday my husband and I celebrated our 5 year Wedding Anniversary. We had plans to attend a concert at the Hollywood Bowl later that evening, but we elected to stay in for dinner. I made this tasty little dish I pinned the other day, Avocado Chicken Parmesan: http://pinterest.com/pin/91901648616930402/. I also made Easy Parmesan Couscous as a side dish: http://pinterest.com/pin/91901648616949233/
Dinner turned out great! The babysitter arrived early and we enjoyed Diana Krall at the Hollywood Bowl.
I forgot to take a photo of this one. But I think I have a pretty good excuse. You’ll just have to check it out on Pinterest!
Avocado Chicken Parmesan Recipe
2 Chicken Breast Fillets, halved lengthways
1/4 cup melted butter
1 1/2 Cups Dried Breadcrumbs
1/2 Cup Tomato Pasta Sauce
2 Avocados Sliced
1/2 Cup Grated Mozzarella Cheese
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
Place breadcrumbs in a bowl and and melted butter in a bowl.
Dip your thawed chicken in your melted butter and then into the breadcrumbs- cover the whole chicken with breadcrumbs
Place the breadcrumb chickens on a baking tray that is lined with foil and bake for 10 minutes
Remove from oven and on each chicken breast spread 1 heaped tablespoon of pasta sauce. Arrange avocado slices over sauce and sprinkle with decent amount of mozzarella cheese.
Return to oven and bake for another 10 to 15 minutes or until golden and chicken is cooked through.
Serve with salad or serve over cooked pasta.
Easy Parmesan Couscous
1 1/2 C. dry couscous
1 1/2 C. chicken stock
1 clove garlic, minced
3 green onions, sliced
2 Tbsp. butter
Salt (optional. I rarely add salt because my chicken stock is salted)
1 tsp. balsamic vinegar
1/3 C. grated Parmesan cheese
Melt butter in a saucepan on medium heat. Add garlic and onions and saute until soft. Add chicken stock and bring to a boil. Add couscous. Cover and remove from heat. Let stand for five minutes, then fluff with a fork. Add remaining ingredients: pepper, balsamic vinegar, and grated Parmesan. Fluff again and serve while hot. Voila! Easy Parmesan Couscous.
