Yesterday I shared my tablescape, "Black and White with a twist of Lemon". Today I was trying to think of what I would serve to go along with that decor.
One of the "bestest" drinks I've EVER had was a martini Lemon Drop.....
I highly suggest you try one, or better yet, make one!
This would be my choice for a nice cocktail:
|Lemon Drop Martini |
| The fresh taste of citrus infuses a hint of |
sunshine into our special season-inspired
martini. This refreshingly crisp and tasty
drink is perfect for any occasion that may spring up.
For the main course I would go for a simple chicken dish
1 package PERDUE® FIT & EASY® Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts, Thin-Sliced (alternate: PERDUE® FIT & EASY® Boneless, Skinless Turkey Breast Cutlets, Thin-Sliced)
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons garlic salt
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup 99% fat-free chicken broth
- In a shallow dish stir together flour and garlic salt. Press the chicken into the flour mixture, coating both sides completely.
- Coat a large, non-stick skillet with olive oil and set it over high heat. Add chicken and brown on each side approximately 45 seconds. Remove chicken and set it aside.
- Add lemon and chicken broth to skillet and let boil 30 seconds. Return chicken to pan and push it into sauce. Cover and simmer over low heat 3 minutes until meat thermometer inserted in center registers 170° F.
- To serve, set chicken on plates and pour sauce on top.
Along with the chicken, a nice angel hair pasta, garnished with basil and red peppers:
A nice salad:
And saving the best (and EASIEST) for last:
Lemon Icecream filled lemons!
Cut lemon tops off. Scoop out pulp.
Cut bottom off so they will stand up, fill with lemon icecream !
So there you have it! The perfect dinner party meal to go with "Black and White with a Twist of Lemon tablescape!
