All Local Dinner

Hello! I don’t have any recipes to share with you today but I wanted to show all my Arkansas peeps that it is possible to prepare an all local meal. I will say this is not the healthiest meal but it’s all right from our beautiful State of Arkansas.

Tonight I made sautéed red potatoes from Kornegay Berry Farm, bacon from Fallling Sky Farm, fried eggs from Farm Girl, and fresh strawberries from Kornegay Berry Farm.

Every bite was delicious!

Lemon Herb Chicken

I hope everything is well with you. I wanted to share a really yummy recipe with you. I love chicken and I’m always trying to find different ways to cook it. This was super easy and was made with a few things I already had on hand.

I started out with 2 chicken breast and cut them down the middle. You could actually use 4 chicken breast for this recipe but I was only cooking for Kyle and I so I just used 2.

Place in a greased baking dish and season with salt and pepper.

Chop up 4 garlic cloves and sauté in 1/4 cup of olive oil. You will only need to sauté for about a minute.

Once your garlic has sautéed for 1 minute turn the heat off and add your herbs, lemon juice, and white wine and stir.

Pour the mixture over your chicken. Also cut up 1 lemon and place around chicken.

Bake at 425 for 40 minutes.
