This summer I’m growing several types of mint in pots. One evening I was cooking boneless, skinless chicken breast and decided to flavor it with fresh mint. I cooked it a bit first in olive oil and a little water (it was frozen when I put it in the pan), cutting it into bite size pieces when it got partly done (using tongs and a pair of scissors). This speeds the cooking time. Then I added snipped fresh mint and salted it. I may have added some green onion tops and black pepper as well, I don’t remember now. But, it was absolutely delicious! So very simple and yet so tasty! :-) I served it with vegetables (use fresh or cooked), and a carbohydrate (something easy – bread or toast?). A super simple and quick meal.
