Asparagus on sale!, said no one ever. This morning I did and always having frozen chicken breasts on hand, One Pan Italian Chicken Skillet was the perfect way to use up the leftover yellow squash and zucchini from the dinner last night. Knowing a stir fry dinner would be a hit, I was sure this was a slam dunk. Plated, the dish was beautiful with every color except purple. Beautiful was where the dish ended. Varied textures of the veggies caused the ingredients to clash. Red and yellow bell peppers crunchy texture overpowered the perfect mixture of the asparagus, mushrooms, squash, and chicken.
Modifications Made: In preparation, the Italian seasoning and balsamic vinegar was left out because I don't use it, ever. Replacement was a simple salt and pepper mixture. In presentation, the dish was served over white rice but whole grain rice would have been better.
Scale for Likability: Good
If served at a friends house, this meal would be eaten again without complaint. Dislike for the meal simply came from a difference of food texture. Food textures affects people differently. IE: wilted spinach vs fresh spinach.
