Grown-Up Chicken Fingers & Fries

There's nothing I crave more than a good potato-in fry or hash brown form - and some chicken - in finger form - for dipping!  Grown-up, healthy meals can involve these things, too.

(more of my "own" creations..)
Chicken Fingers
2 boneless chicken breasts, sliced (big enough for dipping!)
1/4 of a lemon
pepper, pepper, pepper!
vegetable broth

1.  Cook chicken in garlic and olive oil.  Sprinkle a lot of pepper on both sides of the chicken.
2.  Once the chicken has started to cook, add juice from lemon (1/4 of a lemon if it's a big one!) and enough vegetable broth to have the chicken simmering it it.
3.  Once done, eat alone or dip in something like Thai Chili Sauce

Curried Potato - Fries/Hash browns
1 big potato, cut into very, very small pieces
curry powder
olive oil

In my  mind, potatoes always take so long to cook after a long day at work.  Since we (J) diced them really small, we were able to microwave them for about 6 minutes or so - maybe more - until we could smell them. We coated them in curry powder before microwaving so the curry could start to cook right into the potatoes.  Once done - enough - I threw them in the hot frying pan with a bit of olive oil and harden them up, and we had our adult fries!

Let's face it - we still need a bit of veg.  Once the chicken was cooked, but still simmering, I threw some broccoli in the pan to simmer in the same pot.  Delish. Pin It
