This super easy baked chicken recipe caught my attention on pinterest about a week ago. It looked like the perfect entree for my husband’s new cooking attempts.
After 49 years of marriage and the provision of most of the evening meals, I decided to assign one night a week to the ‘Ole Buckeye. We decided together (he reluctantly) that Thursdays would become his night to provide the evening meal.
We have not had this schedule in place for very long, but it is proving to be quite successful. I have a night off from the food preparation, and he becomes more acquainted with where things are in the kitchen, as well as some basic training.
I will give you a little background on how all of this transpired. On Tuesdays the ‘Ole Buckeye volunteers at the USO. He helps to prepare and feed anywhere from 50-80 for lunch. He normally comes home quite tired. He also talks about all of the different things he does in their kitchen. Hummmm. Thus I decided to put his new found skills to use at home as well as assist in his learning curve.
It is still too early to determine how successful this experiment will be, but so far he has had great success. In addition, most of his meals have been cook once/eat twice entrees, making it possible to provide meals for 2 Thursdays without additional kitchen duty.
His latest oven baked chicken was a take off on a recipe from Budget Savvy Diva which she calls “The Best Chicken Ever”. Budget Savvy Diva’s Chicken
