Chicken, Potatoes, Asparagus, and Baked French Bread

Dinner Tonight: Chicken, Potatoes, Asparagus, and Baked French Bread

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin and lightly buttered it with I Can't Believe It's Not Butter. And as every morning I also had the morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I spent a very restless night last night, fighting with Phantom Pains most of the night. When they finally stopped it dawn. So after doing a few things around the house I went back to bed to catch up on some much needed sleep! For Dinner tonight it's Chicken, Potatoes, Asparagus, and Baked French Bread.

Yesterday I bought a Simple Truth Rotisserie Whole Roaster at the Kroger Deli. Love these Simple Truth Chickens, they are huge and delicious! I pulled all the meat and had them in a plastic container in the fridge. To reheat it I put the Chicken on a micro wave plate with a steamer lid and reheated it. I served it with some Hidden Valley Ranch Buffalo Dressing.

 For one side I prepared a package of the the Little Potato Company – Savory Herb. I always pick up at Meijer. I have these quite often and really enjoy them. The Potatoes come in a microwavable tray. Just pop the tray in the microwave for five minutes and mix in the seasoning pack and you have a nutritious and tasty Potato Dish. These are definitely a good item to have in the pantry! So easy to prepare and no clean up.

Then for another side I prepared some Roasted Asparagus. To prepare the Asparagus I just needed
Extra Light Olive Oil, Garlic (minced), Sea Salt, Freshly grated Black Peppercorn, Lemon Juice, and Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese. To prepare it; Rinse clean the asparagus. Break the tough ends off of the asparagus and discard. Lay the asparagus spears out in a single layer in a baking dish or a foil-covered roasting pan. Drizzle olive oil over the spears, roll the asparagus back and forth until they are all covered with a thin layer of olive oil. Sprinkle with minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Rub over the asparagus so that they are evenly seasoned. Place pan in the preheated 400 degree oven and roast for approximately 8-10 minutes, depending on how thick your asparagus spears are, until lightly browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Drizzle with a little fresh lemon juice and shredded Parm Cheese before serving. For Dessert later a Weight Watcher's Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

Evoking all the cozy feelings of home-cooking, the Savory Herb flavor combines a fun mix of red and yellow Creamer potatoes with a comforting blend of savory herbs, earthy spices and just a hint of bacon flavor.

Simply pop the tray in the microwave for five minutes and mix in the seasoning pack and voila! – you have a nutritious taste of home. This is cozy dish on its own, or combine it with other ingredients to take your meal to a whole new level of down-home goodness.

In three easy steps, you have perfectly steamed and seasoned potatoes!

3. Let the tray rest for 2 minutes then carefully remove plastic film and stir in seasoning pack. Caution – the contents will be very hot. If desired, add 1 tbsp. of butter or olive oil.
