Whipping together a complete dinner of complementary components: dressed greens, a flavorful chicken entrée, and a savory side of potatoes.
Preparing each meal component separately—juggling three recipes and coordinating multiple ingredient lists in the kitchen—and reuniting the foods only at the end.
Devising a highly versatile flavor-ingredient combination that would pull triple-duty on all components at once: chicken marinade, salad dressing, and the platter’s final drizzled flourish.
HOW THIS QUICKIE WORKS
- The magic combination of oil, garlic, thyme, and lemon juice is the holy grail to give a fresh, fragrant boost of flavor to all of the dish’s components
- We mellow the garlic’s harshness by first microwaving the garlic with the oil
- After a quick dip in the marinade, the thin-cut chicken cutlets take mere minutes on a hot grill to cook
