The hubby and I spent last week in Florida to celebrate our anniversary.  We had a wonderful time, relaxing, catching some rays, people watching and eating!
What did you expect?  I am a foodie ya’ know.

We had lunch at a beach restaurant that was bustling with some very interesting people, my eyes were a little sore from swiveling in my head behind my sun glasses.  Do you ever enjoy just watching people?
Besides the exemplary people watching the food was incredible.  I ordered Chicken Paillard off the menu, and it was delicious.  It seemed so simple and fresh I couldn’t wait to recreate it once we got home.
I was almost worried I had missed something when I made the recipe?  It was just so simple, a quick lemon vinaigrette, and a quick sear on the chicken and voila you have Chicken Paillard topped with a fresh Lemon Salad.  Perfect!
I hope you give this recipe a try, it is such a gem.
Are you an avid people watcher?  Do you own giant sunglasses to wear as your disguise?

    This is so delicious! Tonight I am making it with salmon burgers!!! Quick and especially DELICIOUS!!

  2. UPDATE: This was sooo easy to prepare…and to eat. Delicious. Deb is still talking about it because it surprised her.

  3. I’ll try this…the thought of the lemon and arugula kicks my taste buds. But the image of you banging away at those chicken breasts with a small iron skillet cracks me up.

    BTW: I don’t like to mess around with two sheets of plastic wrap, so I put whatever I’m flattening into a large Ziplock bag.

    1. Ms. Liz,
      This is a great recipe to make when you have a lot of frustration that you need to work out! 🙂
