This uncomplicated recipe is made with strips of chicken breasts, sauteed and served with green onions, garlic, and hot cooked grits. Add sliced fresh tomatoes or a salad to this easy meal.
- 1 pound chicken breast halves (boneless, skinless)
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 bunch green onions (sliced, 6 to 8 green onions with tops)
- 1 large clove garlic (crushed and minced)
- 4 cups grits (hot cooked)
Cut the chicken into 2-inch strips. Combine the flour with salt and pepper and dust the chicken strips lightly with the flour mixture.
Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat; add the chicken and brown lightly on all sides, about 7 to 8 minutes. Remove the chicken and set aside.
Add the green onions to the skillet. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Return the chicken to the pan and add the garlic. Cook, stirring, until hot.
Arrange grits in plates for serving. Spoon the chicken mixture over the grits and serve hot with a green vegetable or salad.
