Pan Seared Oven Roasted Skinless Boneless Chicken Breast w/ Golden Hominy and Cut Italian Green Beans

Dinner Tonight: Pan Seared Oven Roasted Skinless Boneless Chicken Breast w/ Golden Hominy and Cut Italian Green Beans

Another rainy night and early morning. For Breakfast I made one our favorites Skillet Potatoes and
Ham for Breakfast. I used 1 package of Simply Potatoes Steakhouse Seasoned Diced Potatoes and a package of Meijer Diced Ham to prepare it. Just cook the Potatoes according to the package instructions and with about 5 minutes of cooking time left add the Diced Ham. We really enjoy this for Breakfast. The afternoon the sun finally broke through for a while. Cleaned and straightened up the pantry after Breakfast. Went to the hospital to see a friend of mine. Back home took the leaf blower and cleaned around the deck and driveway. So for dinner tonight it's going to be a Pan Seared Oven Roasted Skinless Boneless Chicken Breast w/ Golden Hominy and Cut Italian Green Beans.

While at Meijer a while back I came across some beautiful huge Chicken Breasts. Perfect for what I
had in mind to do with them, Pan Seared Oven Roasted Skinless Boneless Chicken Breast. To season them I 'll need McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley along with Litehouse Poultry Herb Blend. I love the Litehouse Poultry Herb Blend it's a blend of Herbs; Onions, Thyme, Sage, Marjoram, Spring Onions, Garlic, and Rosemary. I had the Chicken in the freezer so I laid it out overnight in the fridge to thaw.

To prepare; I preheated the oven on 400 degrees and I got my favorite skillet out, the Cast Iron
Skillet. Sprayed a light coat of Pam Cooking Spray w/ Olive Oil on it and added 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil to it. Heated it on the stove on medium high. I then seasoned the Chicken Breasts with my 3 seasonings. With the skillet and oil heated I added my Chicken. Browned both sides for 3-4 minutes each. Transferred the skillet to the preheated oven. Baked for 15-20 minutes until about 165 internal temperature.

The Chicken Breast came out perfect! Moist and full of flavor. I served it with a side of JB's Fat Boy Sticky Stuff BBQ Sauce. The Cast Iron Skillet is perfect to use when starting a dish on the stove and finishing in the oven!

For one side dish I prepared a can of Allens Golden Hominy. I love Hominy with any meal! For those
that has never had or heard of Hominy; Hominy is a food made from kernels of corn which are soaked in an alkali solution of either lime or lye. The corrosive nature of the solution removes the hull and germ of the corn and causes the grain itself to puff up to about twice its normal size.

Then for another side I prepared a can of Allens Cut Italian Green Beans. To prepare them just empty
the can into a small sauce pan and simmer until heated. I love the taste of these, just season with a bit of Sea Salt and it’s ready! I could have Beans every day and never get tired of having them.

Finally I baked a loaf of Pillsbury Italian Loaf Bread, family’s favorite baked bread. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Double Chocolate Pudding.
