Stay Out of the Kitchen!

Another pre-written blog from Gail:
 
If I were to tell you that I actually cooked something and it was edible and actually tasty, you would probably think I was a total nutcase. And had lost my mind entirely. Cooking was not something I excelled at... nor do I still excel at it, but I try pretty hard. Except on nights when we have fish sticks and mac & cheese. Those nights, I'm just phoning it in. Can't win every night, husband. At least I feed you!
 
Anyhoo... following that mindless ramble, I gotta pimp my friend, Rachel's, blog where she posts yummy recipes. I've actually made several of them (and tasted her versions of others) and she's got it going on. http://outofmealideas.blogspot.com/ Be sure to pop over there and whip yourself up something hearty and yummy!
 
My fave? It's gotta be the Greek chicken. Puff and I eat it probably twice a month, if not more often. And sometimes I even make the potatoes without the chicken. (They make a great side to eat with a grilled steak too!) And sometimes I cheat and use a regular baking potato (since our grocery store only sells red potatoes in bulk which pisses me off) but yeah... you should totally try this!
 

Greek Chicken

6 boneless chicken breasts
6 small potatoes, cut into quarters
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 lemon juice
1 heaping teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
paprika

Place chicken breasts in a 9x13 casserole dish. Place potatoes around the edge of the dish. Combine olive oil, lemon juice, oregano and garlic powder. Pour this sauce over the chicken and potatoes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with paprika. cover with foil. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
