grandma's cookbook - Broiled, Herbed Chicken Breasts & Tater-Tot Casserole

With it looking like Spring is arriving here in Michigan, I have been in the mood for meals which are light, tasty and quick! So, I have been working on preparing meals which are healthy and home-made; not from a box or can and using fresh ingredients. I found a recipe for broiled chicken breasts - if you would like to try it it is really easy . . . place them on the broiler pan, add garlic, pink Himalayan salt, pepper, thyme, marjoram and rosemary, then broil them. The end result will be a moist, tasty, flavorful chicken which you might served in pretzel buns or just on their own with a spring greens salad! Tasty and simple!

If you have any leftover chicken, you could use some of the chicken in a chicken tater-tot casserole - I know, you are thinking, "Wait a minute! I thought you were using fresh foods!!!"

I know most tater-tot recipes use caned cream of mushroom soup and processed cheese, but not me. I used frozen mixed veggies, cut pieces of the broiled, herbed chicken, tater tots and sharp shredded cheddar cheese and bake it for 25 minutes. The result is a tasty, lean veggie and chicken dinner and this is a meal which is so simple to prepare you could have your grandchildren help you assemble it and then serve it to their parents!

So, what about you? How do you prepare boneless, skinless chicken breasts?
