Roasted Balsamic Chicken with Dijon Green Beans
Recall that I purchased one year’s worth of “Low Carb” recipes and shopping lists from EMEALS on a Groupon. A pretty good deal, for $2.00 a month and darned convenient that the Hubs can do all the shopping.
However, one thing I have found is that EMEAL’s interpretation of low carb is different than mine.
I come from the low carb camp that you should refrain from using sugar (or any “real” sweetners for that matter). The recipe called for Honey, but since it was only 1 Tbsp, I guess I was able to live with it for a day. The rest of the ingredients were olive oil, grape tomatoes (I used cherry), chicken breast pounded flat, salt, pepper, and Balsamic vinaigrette salad spritzer. Huh ?? Salad spritzer. I went with it, although I would have preferred to use real Balsamic.
The beans called for butter, parsley, dijon, and lemon rind.
Overall this meal gets a thumbs down. The chicken was not terrifically flavorful and the lemon rind in the beans was not a great flavor. More importantly the family AND myself just didn’t care for it.
