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 some lovely, boneless, skinless chicken breasts and placed them on the broiler pan, added garlic, pink Himalayan salt, pepper, thyme, marjoram and rosemary, then broiled them. The end result was a moist, tasty, flavorful chicken which I served in pretzel buns or just on their own with a spring greens salad! Tasty and simple!

Left over chicken is great in rice and 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 bak 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?
