Khanh and I have been going back and forth from SF to Sacramento to check up on his parents’ house. They’ve been on vacation so we come and stay for a couple days every week to water the plants and make sure everything is still okay. We didn’t feel like going anywhere or ordering take-out and I don’t know where everything is and I don’t know what kind of spices his mom keeps in the cupboards so I went to Raley’s to look for some inspiration. At first I thought I’d fry up a couple of steaks, but then I thought about the grease splattering everywhere so I changed my mind. Then I saw this pre-prepared chicken cordon bleu pack in the raw meat section and thought, why not? Since I decided to take the easy way out of dinner I picked up a pack of frozen veggies with cheese sauce too.
If you’re a busy mom or just a busy person and wants to whip up something decent in a short amount of time this is a good way to go. The chicken goes in a baking dish in the oven at 350 degrees for 35 minutes. The veggies can steam in the microwave for 5 minutes which can be done while the chicken is finishing up in the oven. So in 35 minutes you’ve got a complete meal!
