There wasn't very much cooking going on in my house this weekend. Baking, yes, lots of baking. But I wasn't particularly hungry around dinner time and I was feeling very lazy. Saturday night the hubbs came out of his dungeon and asked about dinner.
Husband, eyeing me on the couch: "So, what's for dinner?"
Me: "I don't know."
Husband, panicking: "Huh? We're not eating tonight?"
Me: "I'm not really in the mood to cook tonight."
Husband, baffled: "What do you mean? Then we're not going to eat?"
Sometimes you just don't feel like cooking, you know? Don't worry, he didn't starve. We had bowls of ravioli and he was a happy camper.
This is an old chicken dish I made during my chicken escapades. It's super easy and quick, perfect for a night when you don't feel like cooking.
Depending on what you serve it with, you might only need to dirty one pan! Yippie! I don't know about you, but that's the only thing I dread about the kitchen- washing pots and pans. You could make a simple salad or maybe some rice to go with this. Keep it simple!

4 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 tablespoons chopped shallots
1/2 cup fat-free, lower-sodium chicken broth
1 rosemary sprig (I used 1 teaspoon dried rosemary, add more if you really like this herb)
3 tablespoons whipping cream
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
Place chicken breast halves between 2 sheets of plastic wrap; pound to 1/2-inch thickness. Sprinkle chicken with salt and black pepper. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add olive oil to pan. Add chicken; sauté 3 minutes on each side or until done. Transfer to a serving platter. Add shallots to pan; sauté for 2 minutes. Stir in chicken broth and rosemary sprig; bring to a boil. Cook 2 minutes. Stir in whipping cream; cook 2 minutes. Remove from heat, and discard rosemary. Stir in Dijon mustard. Spoon over chicken.
Are there nights when you just don't feel like cooking? What do you make?
