Scarborough Fair Chicken

For dinner the other night I wanted to bake some chicken, but didn't really know what I was going to put on it. I put the chicken in the pan, and sprinkled some rosemary on top. This made me start singing the Simon and Garfunkel (I went through a big sixties music phase in high school) song, Scarborough Fair:

Are you going to Scarborough Fair
Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme

Remember me to one who lives there
She once was a true love of mine

So what did I do? On top of the rosemary, I sprinkled parsley, sage, and thyme. I thought, if the spices are in a song together, then they should taste good together, right? I'm so glad the song isn't "Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Cumin," or chili powder or something...that could have been interesting.

I served the yummy chicken with some pasta tossed with fresh asparagus and tomatoes. It was a great dinner! Here's the lindstewfoodies original recipe! There's no measuring, just make one chicken breast per person.

Scarborough Fair Chicken

Ingredients:
Chicken breasts
Parsley
Sage
Rosemary
Thyme
Olive oil
Garlic, minced (1 large clove for every two chicken breasts)
Lemon Juice

Directions:
Heat oven to 350ยบ F. Spray a baking pan with cooking spray. Place chicken breasts in pan. Sprinkle evenly with parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme. Mince garlic on top of chicken. Drizzle with olive oil and lemon juice. Bake, covered, for about 45 minutes, then uncovered until juices run clear (about 15 minutes more).


Pasta with Asparagus and Tomatoes

Ingredients:
Angel hair pasta (or other desired pasta)
Asparagus, chopped (did you know the thinner the asparagus spears, the more tender they are?)
Tomatoes, chopped
Olive oil
Parmesan cheese
Salt and pepper

Directions:
In a large pot, bring water to a boil. Salt water and add pasta. Two to three minutes before pasta is done, toss in asparagus. When pasta is al dente, strain and put back in pot. Drizzle a little olive oil over pasta. Toss with tomatoes, parmesan, salt and pepper, to taste.

Easy! A light but flavorful meal! Hope you enjoy! :)
