Comfort food is a very good thing. Tonight I made chicken, mashed potatoes and broccoli. Homey and delicious.
I cut the chicken breasts into tenders, dipped them in beaten egg and then dredged them in a mixture of Italian seasoned bread crumbs and Pecorino cheese. I gave them a quick saute in a skillet over medium-high heat. They took about 2 minutes per side.
For the mashed potatoes I finally tried The Food Pornographer's recipe for garlic mashed potatoes. Her partner adds a clove of garlic to the potatoes while they're cooking and then mashes the potatoes and garlic together. One word - yum! I added two crushed cloves because we really like garlic. Once the potatoes were tender, I mashed them with some milk, leftover heavy cream from last night's fettucine alfredo, salt, pepper and butter. I think this is my new favorite way to make mashed potatoes.
The broccoli I just steamed and then tossed with butter, salt and pepper.
