Steps

  • In an oven safe skillet, sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper and brown on medium high heat for a couple of minutes. Remove the chicken from the pan and set aside.
  • Add olive oil to the pan. Layer the sliced potatoes and onions in the pan and sprinkle with half of the steak seasoning. Cook potatoes and onions in a thin layer until brown, turning as little as possible to get a nice sear.
  • Place chicken in an even layer over the zucchini. Pour tomatoes evenly over the chicken. Sprinkle tomatoes with the oregano and basil. Cover and cook until the veggies and chicken are completely done.
  • Sprinkle with cheese and place under the broiler until cheese melts or starts to brown. You could also just cover the pan with a lid on the stove to melt the cheese.

  • What could be easier than a one-pot dinner recipe? As the lazy days of summer grow long so does my to-do list of laundry and chores. The household responsibilities have taken a back seat to cooling off in the pool and impromptu backyard picnics. By the time dinner rolls around, the last thing I want to do is slave in the kitchen. Lazy can sometimes be considered a negative term, but I just like to think it’s being efficient with your energy. This Lazy Chicken is a one-pot healthy dish with layers of fresh summer vegetables and seasonings. And just because it’s called Lazy Chicken, don’t expect it to lack flavor. Although, it’s sometimes hard to find healthy dishes that still appeal to the whole family, this one will have your family eating their veggies without complaint. Let’s face it — sometimes healthy cooking requires a lot of time and preparation. Now don’t get me wrong, you still have to chop a few veggies here and there, but this Lazy Chicken is cooked in one pot, which means less cleanup in the end and more time to relax in the summer sunset. The key is to slice the veggies thin and layer them in the pot in even layers so that the veggies cook quickly. No need to transfer it to a fancy serving dish — just serve it right from the pan on the table … this is Lazy Chicken after all!

Nuggets

Honey Mustard Sauce

Steps

  • 1 Cut chicken into 1-ounce chunks. You should get about 24 pieces. Add chicken to a bowl with pickle juice and let marinate for at least 20 minutes.
  • 2 Preheat oil to 350°F in a deep fryer or heavy saucepan. In one bowl, whisk together eggs and milk. In a second bowl, whisk the dry ingredients together.
  • 3 Drain chicken well and pat dry with a few paper towels. To coat nuggets, dredge each piece in the dry ingredients, then the egg mixture, then again back in dry ingredients so there is a nice crust on nuggets. Place nuggets on a baking rack and repeat until all pieces are breaded.
  • 4 Fry nuggets in batches for 6-7 minutes until they are golden brown and cooked through. Test a larger piece by cutting it in half to make sure they are cooked through.
  • 5 Remove nuggets from fry oil and drain on a few paper towels. Serve while warm with honey mustard sauce and waffle fries.

  • It’s dangerously easy, folks. Almost every fast food place has some version of nuggets on their menu. Some are better than others. In my humble opinion, I think Chick-fil-A™ does a great job with theirs. Of course, if it’s Sunday and you’re craving them, you are out of luck! Until now. Because now you can just make them at home. Don’t forget the waffle fries! I don’t know this for a fact, but it seems like they must brine their nuggets or something. They are always nicely seasoned and really juicy. This might sound crazy (okay… it definitely does), but pickle juice is the way to get that Chick-fil-A brined flavor! Serve these tasty nuggets with that delicious honey mustard and some crispy waffle fries.
