Dinner Suggestion: Chicken pot

This isn't as much a recipe, as it is a suggestion for what you can have for dinner. The reason for this is the endless ways you can tweak this dish.

Basically it's raw chicken rubbed with rosemary, along with some salt and pepper. I split the chicken into four pieces, two with thigh, and two with the breast parts. The chicken goes into the frying pan for a little while, and then into the casserole for at least 30 minutes. I also include onion, mushroom and cream. The sweet pepper is there for the color near the end. And that's it.

You don't have to use rosemary as your preferred herb. Feel free to use basil or oregano. Or how about spinach? Or mint? Curry is also an option. The mushroom is optional. How about artichokes or asparagus instead? The cream is optional. How about sour cream or yogurt instead? I used Brussels sprouts, and a simple salad as side dishes. You can add various side dishes like bread, rice, pasta, baked potatoes, mashed potatoes.

The main thing here is a relatively fresh, raw chicken. You can't really go wrong from there. It's easier than you think.

Remember to pour some water into the frying pan, and clear out the good taste that has accumulated. Everything goes into the casserole of course.
