Four cheese chicken

I found a great looking chicken parmesan┬á recipe on the Internet last week so I decided it’s time to try it. Then I started pulling stuff out of the fridge, and like most of the things I cook, it was clear that I won’t follow the recipe and would have to cross my fingers till the first bite.

First off, I preheated the oven to 200 degrees, I put the chicken breasts in a baking sheet and seasoned them with olive oil, salt, cracked pepper, garlic and white wine.

DSCN2209I baked them for 10-15min and when I got them out of the oven I covered them with pesto, tomato sauce, grated mozzarella, grated parmesan and croutons with a small amount of butter on top.

DSCN2212I baked the whole thing for 5 min so the croutons would get golden brown. Then I put another layer of tomato sauce and added mozzarella, parmesan, cheddar, Bulgarian yellow cheese and basil.

DSCN2220The result was a tasty homemade dish that got even Martin full, which is a rare sight since he has something like nine stomachs ­čÖé

It appears that I get crafty when I do something stupid. I bought these frozen shrimps and forgot them in my car for a few hours so when I finally remembered that there were more bags in my trunk  I had to come up with a recipe ASAP. I did this little experiment it came up great. So here is the recipe:

The shrimps:

Defrost the shrimps (the common way, not in your car:) ). Heat the oil in a large skillet, add the shrimps, the wine and season with mixed pepper, salt and sugar. Stir for 5-10 min till they get golden brown.

The sauce:

Mix in a bowl honey, mustard, soy sauce and olive oil.

The salad:

Rinse the radishes. Slice them in thin slices, spread some butter and sprinkle with salt.

All this took me about 20 min and it was delish. Bon apetit!
