So I was assigned to cook dinner tonight, and I'm not the best at knowing what to make. Any simple recipes for a 3 course meal with the entrée being chicken breast?
1) Chicken breast. season with salt, paprkia and dust with flour, fry in pan. remove to warm oven. Make a sauce with white wine, capers, lemon juice. or just a lemon/wine sauce...remove pan from heat and add soft butter.
3) a vegie dish or starch dish like baked potato, oven fries, or rice
You can boost up the chicken portion with some onions, peppers, mushroom in the pan. But finish with a touch of wine (or stock) and thicken it off heat with soft butter. So it doesn't break.

I would serve a vegetable soup as an first course - maybe this roasted carrot soup: http://food52.com/recipes...
Throw some baby potatoes with a little olive oil, chopped rosemary, and sea salt in the oven while it is on.
A simple green salad would be nice on the side.
If you are doing dessert too, Lazy Mary's lemon tart is super fast and never lets me down. Buy a tart crust if you don't have time to make one.
