Food for Fuel: Chicken with Goat Cheese Sauce

October 10, 2008 at 10:11 am | Posted in Food, Nutrition, Poultry, Product Review, Rice, Quinoa, and Other Grains | 2 Comments

Sounds fancy, right? It tastes pretty fancy too, but this Cooking Light recipe takes about 10 minutes to prepare. A good thing, because I got home late last night and I was getting hungry. However, I did take the time to roast some veggies that need to be used up before I leave for the weekend. I seasoned Brussels sprouts, mushrooms, zucchini, and onions with olive oil, garlic powder, and parsley. Roasted at 400* for 30 minutes, flipping halfway through. They roasted while I did all my “getting home and getting settled” type tasks.

On the side, I tried a new Kashi product: the 7 Whole Grain Pilaf that takes only 90 seconds in the microwave. It was very tasty for a microwave product. I liked the chewy consistency. One bag is about two servings.

I’m not sure if I made too much goat cheese sauce or didn’t allow it enough time to thicken, but it ran all over the plate. Not a bad thing, because it went nicely with my pilaf and roasted veggies.

Sorry you can’t see the sauce in the picture. It’s white…and so is my plate.

  1. ooh! I LOVE this new kashi product – it’s so good. Very chewy and nutty and just tastes so wholesome. I like the Moroccan Curry and the Fiesta varieties. Nummy! Yay for brussels sprouts, too!

  2. Oooh they have other!? I’ll be looking for those.
