After calming down a little, talking with the other driver, and doing paperwork with the policeman; Mom and I got back in the truck. Amazingly, it was still driveable, and we were still hungry. So, being less than a mile from the restaurant, off to Zio's we headed again. The place was busy so we ordered it to go and ate in the truck. It was still yummy!!
First, I sliced the chicken at an angle just like at the restaurant. Then, I cooked it just until it was done in my favorite skillet. Zio's grills the chicken, but I have no grilling capabilities without my husband home.
Then, I started on the veggies. I only had fresh spinach so I steamed it while the chicken was cooking. (Note to self: Keep a box of frozen spinach on hand for recipes like this.) Drained it well, and chopped it in my handy-dandy, little-bitty food chopper. Then, I popped open a can of artichoke hearts, drained them, rinsed them, and chopped them up.
To the healthy veggies, I added parmesan and mozzarella cheeses. Kevin says I like everything better with cheese. (I think
