Dinner in 20 minutes or less

Real Simple magazine is oh-so-clever. Near the back of the magazine is a page of perforated cards with highlights from various articles.  One is always a recipe.  This one caught my eye: “What’s a good go-to chicken recipe that’s ready in under 20 minutes?”

Real Simple delivers with Chicken, Proscuitto and Zucchini

The answer: Chicken with Prosciutto and Zucchini. Score! Mondays are always hectic.  At 5:55 I realized I’d lost all sense of time and the boys needed to be out the door in less than an hour.  I don’t know about you, but it takes me a few minutes just to get acclimated when I walk in the kitchen.  Twenty minutes of cooking is more like the cardio segment of a workout routine. I need a few minutes to warm up and then a cool down period as well. Nonetheless, Real Simple’s quickie chicken dish worked like a charm for a busy Monday night.  With a side of buttered egg noodles, dinner was done in a flash.
