These are the ramblings of a self-described wheat, grain and gluten-free “gourmet girl” that loves to cook and eat good food. I love creating and sharing recipes and photographing “beautiful food”. In July 2012, I eliminated wheat, grains and added sugar from my diet and rediscovered real, whole fresh foods again and effortlessly lost 65+ pounds. Join me in my wheat, grain and gluten-free journey. See how easy it is to enjoy grain free gourmet, one meal at a time! Welcome to my blog. Enjoy!
Friday Night's Simple Grilled Chicken and Roasted Asparagus
TGIF and Happy Friday! This evening I made a super quick dinner and we were actually sitting down to eat less than an hour after I walked in the door. The dinner itself only took about 30 minutes to actually prepare and cook. I pounded boneless chicken breasts to even out their thickness a bit (and to get rid of some aggression by beating them into submission...LOL), sprayed them with a little olive oil and then sprinkled both sides with one of Penzeys Spices' seasoning blends called "Northwoods Fire" before grilling them. The seasoning is a blend of salt, chipotle pepper, Hungarian paprika, garlic, rosemary, thyme, black pepper and cayenne. It isn't overly spicy, but just a touch. I oven roasted the fresh asparagus after tossing it with some olive oil, sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. After the asparagus was done cooking, I turned off the oven and slid a few little slices of the herbed cheesy baguette bread into the oven to heat and then lightly buttered them. It was a delicious, fresh, quick and easy dinner for a Friday night. I took a couple of pics to share below. Enjoy!
