I can truly appreciate an easy, quick, light dinner. It seems like by the time I get home, sort through the mail, empty backpack and lunchboxes, help with homework, and do a little housework it is 6 PM and dinner is far from ready.
I, for one, am not a fan of eating dinner late. I like to have it on the table, eaten and cleaned up by 7:30. A lofty goal, I know, but an attainable one if you plan ahead.
I try to map out a few dinner ideas before I start each new week. I think it helps to keep me on track and also helps when I go to the grocery store or the farmers market. If I go with a meal plan and a list I tend to not over buy!
This is an easy, family friendly dish that I saw in BHG Magazine. Start the simple marinade the night before and when you get home simply place in the oven or grill. Add a side of veggies or a salad and dinner is done. It is so nice to come home to a meal that is easy to get on the table.
Chicken Breasts in a Green Onion Marinade
4 whole chicken legs or split breasts, skin removed. Mine were from Simpsons Family Farms, Martinsville, Indiana
1/2 C chopped green onions, white and green portions
1/4 C olive oil
Kosher salt and fresh ground pepper
In a plastic bag or shallow dish add all of the ingredients to marinade for at least 8 hours in the refrigerator.
Grill or bake, as desired.
