Pan Seared Oven Roasted Skinless Boneless Chicken Breast w/ Red Beans & Rice and Sliced Carrots

Dinner Tonight: Pan Seared Oven Roasted Skinless Boneless Chicken Breast w/ Red Beans & Rice and Sliced Carrots

To start my morning off I made a Ham, Cheese, and Egg Breakfast Sandwich and my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I used Boar's Head Black Forest Ham, a slice of Sargento Ultra Thin Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Scrambled 1 medium size Egg, and used Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. After Breakfast I did some cleaning around the house. Then after a light lunch I headed over to spend the afternoon with Dad. My Dad is not looking good at all. I don't know if he's going to recover from this, we can only pray and hope. Back home I did some laundry for Mom. So for dinner tonight I prepared a Pan Seared Oven Roasted Skinless Boneless Chicken Breast w/ Red Beans & Rice and Sliced Carrots.

While at Meijer a while back I came across some beautiful huge Chicken Breasts. They were so good the first time around I couldn't wait  to use them again. I prepared them like I did last week, 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 minutes. Transferred the skillet to the preheated oven. Baked for 15-20 minutes until a 165 internal temperature. And like the first time I made these, 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 Glory Foods Seasoned New Orleans Style Red Beans and Rice. First time I've tried this item and was really pleased! To prepare it just empty the contents into a medium sauce pan. Cover and bring to a boil. Stir and reduce heat. Simmered gently until hot and served. The Beans and Rice were both good with excellent seasoning. Another item for the pantry.

For a second side I heated up a can of Kroger Brand Sliced Carrots, same preparation as the Beans and Rice. i also had a couple of slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread topped with I Can't Believe It's Not Butter. For dessert later a Skinny Cow Chocolate Truffle Ice cream Bar.
