Chicken with Thyme

So I worked at home today and was able to make dinner. I picked up chicken breast on sale. I cut them into Scaloppine. Mixed flour and fresh thyme leaves. Dredged the chicken. Heated olive oil and a knob of butter. Sauteed the chicken and seasoning it with salt and pepper. Added lemon juice and white wine and heated until reduced.
Sliced zucchini and yellow squash and sauteed that in olive oil and a knob of butter. Added parsley and cooked until browned.
Bought twice baked potatoes at the market.
The chicken was really good. The sauce was lemony but not too lemony. I really stood by the stove and said what the heck am I going to make for dinner and it came out quite good!

Your " I don't know what to make for dinner" meal came out pretty good! I had to smile, I keep seeing the phrase "knob of butter" in quite a few food blogs. I may have to adapt that phrase too :-)

A definite advantage of having an opportunity to work from home is the increased likelihood that a decent dinner can greet the family.
