I love cooking simple and fresh meals. I don’t have a lot of time to cook, but I want a fresh meal for Leo and Darrill. Here is one of my favoite spring green meals.
I start with fresh organic spinach, fresh basil, artichokes , cucumbers and limes, which I buy at my local farmers market.
Then I put a chicken half in a piece of foil and I add fresh basil and spinach, and garnish with slices of limes , garlic salt and pepper. Then I bake it in the oven at 400 for 35 min
Then I put the artichokes in salted boiling water for 30 min.
I buy my spices from Spice Merchants in Temecula Ca. I love their picnic blend, I add it to sour cream for a great dip for the artichokes.
Next I make my green salad with spinach, cucumbers, fresh basil and a few red grapes or black olives.
I add fresh tortellini from my market which I cooked for ten min. and top off the salad with olive oil and parmesan cheese .
This meal goes perfect with fresh brewed green tea garnish with a slice of lime.
The chicken is done and smells wonderful, this meal is low-fat and healthy too ! Hope you enjoy .
