Weekend of Glutton Part Tres

In continuation of the weekend foodie theme and also in light of my new arugula theme, Sunday night Live In and I made the most delicious meal, probably ever. No joke.

Angle 1:


Blackened Chicken on top of Spaghetti with sauteed spinach, onions and asparagus, topped with fresh arugula and shaved parmesan.

It was just so darn good and also very easy to make!

Sauteed Veggies

  • Sauteed 1/2 onion
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • spinach (1 package of frozen spinach)
  • 1.5 tbsp of olive oil.
Add chopped asparagus in the last 2 minutes. Season with salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. You can also leave the onion out or not.

Blackened Chicken
Coat lightly oiled chicken breasts with a mixture of the following (about 1/4 to 1/2 tsp each)
  • White pepper
  • Cajun seasoning
  • Cumin
  • Salt
  • Cayenne Pepper
    Smoked Paprika
  • Onion Powder

Preheat oven to 350. Grease a cast iron skillet with 2 tbsp of butter. When hot, add chicken and cook for about 2 minutes each side.

Throw in the oven until chicken is done (internal temp of 160)
We also throw a pat of butter on each breast in the last five minutes of cooking.

Spaghetti (Whole Wheat)
Follow the directions on the box

Mix sauteed vegetables in with spaghetti and add more olive oil, if your little heart desires.

After plated, top with handful of arugula and shaved parmesan. Your taste buds will thank me. I don't lie.

Whew! All that cooking makes one sleepy little puppy!

Night Night
