I decided not to give into my craving for steak and instead broke my vegetarian diet with a simple roast chicken dinner.
Super simple, easy dinner. I seasoned the boneless, skinless chicken breasts before browning them in a cast iron skillet. After flipping them, I slide them in the oven to finish cooking.
I paired the chicken with oven roasted potatoes and crispy green beans. I can’t tell you how happy I am to be eating meat again. Vegetarian dishes are awesome, but I really, really missed animal protein for dinner!
As I said before, I loved the opportunity to flex my creative culinary muscles by going vegetarian for the month of January. I came away with a bunch of new dishes, a few new flavor combinations, and a new respect for my vegetarian friends. I never thought I would have a nice thing to say about the dreary month of February, but this year, so far, it is my favorite month!
