My husband Scott has been busy with work which means dinner is with me, myself and I. So I decided to make the usual. This is a great dinner that is healthy and fast, I make it a lot so to change it up I just add different kinds of seasoning to the meat.
First off, I start the asparagus roasting in the oven at 400. I spray them with canola oil from Trader Joe's and season with salt and pepper. I roast them for about 12-15 mins.
Next is the acorn squash. I slice it in half, scrape out the middle and put it upside down in the microwave for about 7-8 mins. (this time is for 1 half) I know it is not good to micro the veggies but sometimes I just run out of time and don't have that hour to let them roast. Plus I DO think you get SOME nutrients, I mean really, it is still a veggie right?
On to the chicken, I buy the frozen chicken tenders from Trader's, unthaw them and last night I seasoned them with Emeril's steak rub which is really spicy. I get my pan hot on the stove, spray with oil spray and put the chicken in the pan. I cook each side about 5 mins or so.
When the micro goes off I flip the squash and continue to cook another 5 mins. With about 1-2 mins left I put a little, bitty bit of butter. I mean just a little people. You don't need a lot and then I add a small amount of brown sugar cuz I love it!
Then...... after all the timers are done and off and 15 mins later dinner is served!
It was so good and de-lish and for dessert I am sure I have room for some dark chocolate.
