30 Minute Chicken with Grains + Arugula

Posted on by Jennie

OK, guys, sue me. I love chicken. I love wilted greens. I love sundried tomatoes and add them mostly to all things any day, any time.

So last night, when I set out to make another 30 minute meal, I might have made you another chicken dish. I’m sorry. But this can be made sans chicken, with seafood, with tofu, or with beans…or pretty much with whatever you want. Basically what I am saying is customize away.

So here’s what we got: arugula, sundried tomatoes, feta, harvest grains from TJs, chicken, and lemons. Get excited.

I cut and juiced four lemons. You can use as much as you want – how lemony do you like your chicken and grains? (Hint: your answer should be as lemony as possible.)

These are harvest grains from TJs. They come in a bag. They take 10 minutes to make, and have couscous, and quinoa, and orzo, and garbanzo beans…it’s heaven! In only 10 minutes!

Cook up some chicken, salting it and squeezing about two lemons worth of lemon juice over them while cooking.

I used about five ounces of feta. I could have used more, but I didn’t want to be absurd. Be absurd; add more.

I also used about four cups of arugula. It was a lot, but I like arugula. If you’re not a fan, use like two cups, or use kale, or some other green that you can wilt. OR you can wilt the arugula first, but I just used the grains and the chicken to do the job for me. Laziness, is what it is…or hunger?

So add your cheese, and your sundried tomatoes (I used half a cup. Again, do what feels right in your heart.)

And you’re left with a delicious meal that’s ready in about twenty minutes. Squeeze lemon juice over the top, and eat while catching up on TV, or with a loved one or two.
