So the other night I stepped into my kitchen and was beyond inspired. My inspiration actually stemmed from the fact that I had LESS ingredients to work with than usual.
Opened my fridge to find ONE chicken breast and 2lbs of untouched ground turkey. Now this could have been a hindrance. But the hell with that!
What manifested was a dish I’m calling the Chick N’ Turf. The recipe to follow just goes to show that sometimes, less is actually more.
- One 5oz chicken breast
- 1lb of ground turkey/ground beef
- 2-3 Eggs
- 3-4 Medium sized potatoes
- 3-4 Carrots
- Head of Green Leaf Lettuce
- One tomatoe
- One red onion
Seasonings and other added goodness
- Goat Cheese
- Italian bread crumbs
- Olive oil
- Red Pepper Flakes
- Thyme Leaves
- Curry Powder
Now Let’s Cook
The first thing you want to do is make sure you have all your ingredients. Cooking with missing ingredients just doesn’t do the dish justice.
Bring a medium sized pot of water to a boil. While that’s going on season your chicken with all the spices listed. If you want to add even more herbs/spices go crazy, you’re the chef!
Next chop your potatoes and carrots then throw them in the boiling water for 10 minutes. Then, set your oven to 400 degrees and let that bad boy sizzle up.
Now….here’s where things get dirty. Season your ground beef and add the bread crumbs and eggs. Really get up in there. The messier the better. Afterwards make patties from the ground turkey mixture.
Pour some olive oil into a pan and set it to medium low heat. Once hot, throw your chicken and patties on and cook them for 4 minutes each side. By now your potatoes and carrots will be done so drain them and throw them in the oven for 20 minutes (season as desired).
After the chicken and patties have cooked, throw them in the oven for another 7 mins. This makes for a crispy outer layer and tender inside 🙂
While the chicken and patties finish make your salad using the tomatoes, red onion and lettuce. Throw some olive oil and goat cheese on that bad boy and you’re ready to grub.
Share. Eat. Repeat
