Parmesan Green beans

Parmesan Green beans

Hello there my fellow foodies! I feel like I’ve been neglecting you guys and my blog. I’ve been so busy with work and raising my daughter that I have barely had enough time to post all the recipes I have in my cue! This last week in particular has been trying, and I didn’t get around to posting a second recipe, so I’ll try to post 3 this week to make it up to you.

My husband is a big fan of green beans, he would eat them every day of the week if I served them. This is a super quick and delicious way to serve green beans, and we all love green beans this way! Serve these with meatloaf and you have a winning dinner!

1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese grated
1/4 cup of Percorino cheese grated
1lb of fresh organic green beans stems removed
Sea salt an black pepper to taste
1 tablespoon of olive oil.

Pre-heat your oven to 400F. Line a cookie sheet with foil. Place the green beans in a single layer on the cookie sheet. Drizzle the green beans with olive oil, and season with sea salt and black pepper.

Bake for 10 minutes or until green beans are fork tender, then remove from oven top with grated cheese and bake for 1-2 minutes or until cheese melts. Remove from oven and enjoy!

Share your favorite green bean recipe. I could use some new ways to enjoy green beans!

Parmesan Chicken with Caesar Roasted Romaine

Parmesan chicken is one of my favorite meals. This particular Parmesan chicken recipe is so easy to make, and it’s paired perfectly with roasted romaine. It is like eating a Caesar salad, but kicked up a few notches! This particular Parmesan chicken recipe speaks to my inner lazy girl, because it’s a one pot wonder! You read it right, everything cooks in one pan, and in 20 minutes! It doesn’t get better than that! If you’ve never tried roasted romain, then you’re in for a treat with this recipe. Romaine takes on a rich, warm, and soulful texture when you roast it. Everyone who tries this, always mistakes the romaine for a sturdier green, like a kale, or collard…without the bitterness of course.  Most Parmesan chicken recipes include bread crumbs, this one does not, so it’s gluten free. If you want to add bread crumbs then be my guest, just swap out 1/2 a cup of the cheese with 1/2 cup of either Panko, or bread crumbs. 
Here is what you need
1 lbs of  skinless, boneless chicken (4 breast or 5-6 chicken thighs)
Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper
1/2 cup grated Parmesan
1/2 cup of grated Percorino or Asiago cheese
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley
2 garlic cloves, chopped, divided
2 large hearts of romaine, halved lengthwise
4 anchovy fillets packed in oil, drained, chopped
1 lemon, cut into 8 wedges
Preheat oven to 450°. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with foil. Season chicken with salt and pepper; place on prepared sheet.

Combine cheese, 2 Tbsp. oil, parsley, and 1 garlic clove in a medium bowl.

Pat mixture onto breasts.

 Roast chicken until crumbs begin to turn golden, about 10 minutes.

Drizzle romaine with 1 Tbsp. oil and sprinkle with remaining 1 chopped garlic clove. Season with salt and pepper. Remove sheet from oven; place romaine around chicken.

 Roast until chicken is cooked through and lettuce is browned at edges, about 5 minutes.

Divide among plates. Top lettuce with anchovies; garnish with lemon wedges for squeezing over. Enjoy!
