When it comes to the timing aspect of cooking dinner, I’ve always been a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants kind of girl. I’ve been lucky and usually everything just falls into place and different dishes get ready around the same time. My mom, on the other hand, is way more organized about it; usually when it’s a holiday or she’s otherwise entertaining, I’ll spy a nice, neat little timeline in a notebook on the kitchen counter, with each step meticulously calculated.
The timing gods were smiling on me when I made this dinner. This Broiled Herb Chicken with Lemon Butter Sauce was served alongside the Savory Vegetable Patties last week. The chicken literally takes minutes to put together, and as soon as I put it into the oven, I went to work on the vegetable patties. By the time the patties were done, so was the chicken. Absolutely perfect.
Broiling gives the chicken a nice, crispy skin and the meat inside ends up very tender. The seasoning on the chicken and the lemon butter sauce on top just finishes it off nicely. This is a great go-to recipe when you’re looking for something quick to get you in and out of the kitchen. Served alongside the vegetable patties or some nicely whipped mashed potatoes, you have the perfect comfort food meal to fight the slight chills of the Fall season.
