A New Recipe – And A Full Dinner – From Mrs. Bgddy Jim


March 2012

My wife just started working with the Broiler a couple of weeks ago and she absolutely hit one out of the park – by accident.  Be prepared to save this one, it’s simple and as good as any chicken I’ve ever had at a restaurant.

Prepare 2 or 3 boneless chicken breasts by fileting them, butterfly style – watch your fingers.

Pour 1/8 cup of Olive Oil into a plastic freezer bag

Add 1 Packet of McCormick’s Grill Mates Zesty Herb Marinade to the Olive Oil.  Close the bag and mix the ingredients.

Drop in the chicken breast and coat them in the mixture.

Place a cookie cooling rack on a cookie sheet (the metal thing you bake cookies on) and place the chicken on the rack and set aside.

Prepare a salad (our favorite is mixed greens, spinach, carrots, celery and cucumbers).

Prepare 1 box of Lundberg Farms Creamy Parmesan Risotto according to the instructions – after you add the water and mix, preheat the oven to Broil (525 degrees).  After the Risotto’s come to a boil and been simmering for a few minutes, Broil that chicken.  The wife says 4-6 minutes a side, depending on the thickness of the filets ‘0 chicken.

The risotto and chicken should be done just about the same time.


This is one of the quickest, easiest dinners my wife makes, and I’m telling you, it’s unbelievable!  Even my two ultra picky “can’t we just have hot dogs” daughters love it – and all you hear from my end of the table is Nom, nom, nom, nom…

    Sounds delicious!


  2. that exact mccormick spice mix has been one of my favorites for years. My best friend’s mom used it constantly on chicken. brings back high school memories of cookouts at their upstate new york abode. it’s a classic.
