Grilled chicken on herb skewers with herbed potatoes I made this last week and it was good.
Cut about 3-4 each long twigs of rosemary and oregano. Take off leaves except for a couple inches at one end. Place in water for several hours. Chop leaves. Take 4 chicken breasts and put in freezer bag. Add lemon and worchestershire sauce (if you can find one without HFCS- or use soy sauce maybe) also add some of the chopped herbs and salt and pepper. Marinate for an hour.
Take good fresh potatoes (I used these all red ones I grow that are very all purpose) about 2 large for 2 people or 4 for 4 people. (this meal was enough for me and hub who eats a lot of chicken- so I used 2 large potatoes). Slice them very thin and put in a casserole with butter Pam and layer with 1T total safe margarine, salt and rest of herbs into several layers. I used too much butter pam and you could taste it and they were kind of greasy but still good. Cover and bake for 45 minutes or so. at 375.
Cut the chicken vertically into big strips and place on herb skewers. Grill on medium heat until done. I put the herb ends off the grill but they still burned off! I'll try again.
I made this tonight and it was awesome! I deleted the cheese and did add a little really good oil. I also used regular lemon and homemade veg stock. (I just put some veg and herb in a pot with cold water and heated it up. I put the risotto pot next to it and ladeled the stock into it as needed. It worked really good.) Also I just pan sauted the salmon in Pam and patted the excess oil off of it. I used pam for the onions and garlic too so the only oil was at the end. If you have never eaten lavender it is really good. Garnish with whole lavender flowers and maybe a lemon peel strip. I think a good substitute for the lavender would be lemon thyme.
