Welcome to Chaotic Recipes, CosmosThe Recipe-Free Recipe Column where we share easy meals, snacks and apps that you can prepare without measurements. Promise your mouth won’t be sorry.
Let’s not pretend that a chicken breast is, for example, the sexiest lunch or dinner option on your regular rotation, because it is not. Nothing against chicken, it’s just basic. But that exact quality is what makes Chicy Boob the perfect base for more appealing ingredients, like melting foods.
Sure, you can put them on the side or on the top, but may I have the audacity to suggest you flutter the breast and put the fun stuff INSIDE the chicken? Think of it a bit like a sandwich with meat for bread but less bizarre and more delicious.
Follow this easy recipe for inspiration, then read on for more flavor combinations to experiment with next week.
Carefully slice the raw fillet horizontally, leaving a small “hinge” on one side; fill it with layers of roasted red peppers, mozzarella, and basil leaves (or one of the combos below); season everything with salt and pep; and bake at 400 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes (or until juices run clear). Thank the chicken for being so delicious. To eat.
The magic combination is, essentially, some sort of green vegetable, plus a creamy (read: cheese) thing, plus a little extra something for ~ complexity ~. Yes, it’s Top Chef. Yes, you will be judged on your final dish. You are free to fly through this list of perfectly logical ingredient combinations.
- Cream cheese + spinach + chopped artichoke hearts
- sliced zucchini + feta cheese + sliced tomatoes
- Cheddar cheese + chopped broccoli + minced garlic
- Honey + Goat cheese + arugula
