Isn’t it challenging to come up with meal ideas? I mean I struggle and I feel like I am constantly searching the web for something that looks hopefully as delicious as it tastes. Now the problem arises when I find something fantastic and it has bigillion steps. It’s an automatic turnoff for me. Our what should have been love story is over. Disappointed I continue to search or you could even say waste-time or even procrastinate by continuing to waste mindless minutes searching instead of actually cooking. Yes, even I the food lover procrastinate over cooking.
But alas, there is always an easier way. Something where you just throw the ingredients together in one pot and let it cook. Those are my kind of meals. My minutes are precious as everyones are. Most days I have slobbery hands and snotty faces looking at me to pick them up. And as I cook, they destroy. On a side note, how can little ones destroy a house in a matter or minutes. I swear the more stuff out the happier they are. Literally it looks as if a tornado has destroyed our house most days. I am over it. I really am.
And back to the meal. Look no further as this is another one pot wonder (insert Angles singing or just me). Drumroll please…. this roasted chicken, kale and potato meal coated in a savory sauce was made in just one, yes one pot! O Happy Day! Plop it in, pour the sauce on and let that baby simmer in the oven while you deal with the slobbery mess or whatever you have to deal with.
45 minutes later you will pull it out and realize you have just created this beauty (insert sigh of relief)…. Now to sit back and enjoy.
