family dinner

on family time {caprese style grilled chicken breasts}

i love the “sunday supper” campaign idea.  something about it rings back to old-fashioned family time, laughter, real conversation, and always good food.  i remember my grandma making a feast to feed three times the number of attendees, and sitting down to be “fed, fat, and happy.”  now we try to make nourishing and delicious meals, and we try to do it as a team… if it’s not in the slow-cooker, we often pick up a rotisserie chicken and pick it apart, dropping onto a salad piled high with farmer’s-market harvested veggies.

this meal had the fastest-ever prep time, super-fast cook time.  my only critique: if you know me, you know i’m not a huge fan of the frozen chicken breast.  next time, it’ll be whole breasts, fired over the grill.  somehow it seems to need the bones and the skin to give it the richness of flavor for my liking.

i’m pretty sure i could prep this and have it all ready to pop on the grill when we arrive home from church, or from basketball, or from a relaxing couple hours at the beach.

oh yes!  we served ours with garlicky roasted green beans!  next time i might do spaghetti squash – i’d roast it and then pull it apart to replace the pasta.  this time was quick-and-easy!  ready to make it for your sunday supper?  click here for the recipe.  🙂
