Purple Chicken Recipe

Dinner. It's a struggle for me because after a long day of work I don't feel like standing in the kitchen creating a yummy, healthy meal. Luckily Brad enjoys good food and does a lot of the cooking (winning!). I wanted to share this inexpensive, easy, and delicious recipe that we have so fancily (new word?) named "Purple Chicken". 

You will need 5-6 ingredients from the grocery store:
- chicken breasts (3-4)
- zucchini
- squash
- vegetable oil
- grated parmesan cheese
- Ken's Raspberry Walnut Vinaigrette

What I love about this is you can prep the food the night before. First butterfly the chicken (optional, but it absorbs the dressing better), place it in a container and poor the Raspberry Walnut Vinaigrette dressing over the chicken to marinate overnight.

Cut the zucchini and squash into chunks and store in a container in the fridge. 

The next day when its time to cook preheat the oven to 375, place the chicken in a glass pan and cook for approximately 45 minutes. 

About 20 minutes before the chicken is done cooking, put vegetable oil (we use a little less than a tablespoon) in a pan on the stove over medium heat, sprinkle pepper over the vegetables and cook until golden brown. 

Once the vegetables are cooked, sprinkle parmesan cheese over them until the cheese melts. 

That's it! Once the chicken is done you are ready to eat. It is delicious and your house will smell amaaaazing.

And if you're lucky, someone will do the dishes too :) 

Hope you enjoy this meal, it is one of our favorites. Let me know what you think!
