dinner for three

walk with me as i share how i made our dinner tonight....
so my friend was going to make some stuffed tomatoes and stuffed mushrooms so i decided to follow the "stuffed" theme and decided to go and stuff a chicken (more like a roll)

i went ahead and cut the vegetables into fairly thin strips to that they'd cook quickly

bell peppers, mushrooms, onion, garlic

i pounded the chicken tenders fairly thin so that the cooking time would be very short.
after seasoning the chicken (with salt and pepper), i sprinkled cheese and layered on all the vegetables along with some parsley.

rolled them up, rolled them in egg then panko.
i didnt need to use a toothpick because these chicken tenders were small.

dont they look all peaceful inside the oven? hahaa
i let them stay in the oven for about 15 -18 mins at 350 degrees F.

some of the friends of the chicken roll:

tomatoes stuffed with mushrooms, celery, parsley tossed with balsamic vinegar and dijon mustard :)

same stuffing but with panko crust on top prior to going into the oven

bomb freaken salad....with feta cheese, cranberries, sliced almonds, balsamic vinaigrette yum

we also drank this wonderful sparkling pink lemonade
love the bottle it came in :)

thank you friends for sharing this wonderful dinner with me :)
