The Mashed Cauliflower with Cheese called for:
1 large cauliflower trimmed and separated into florets
1 cup milk or cream
2 Tbsp butter
Salt and ground black pepper
1/4 tsp grated nutmeg
Chopped parsley leaves for garnish
I decided to use broccoli instead of cauliflower. The recipe gave broccoli as a vegetable I could use instead. This was great because I had a lot of leftover broccoli from a past recipe. I also omitted the nutmeg and parsley.
First I brought a pot of water to a boil and salted it. When it was boiling, I added broccoli and let it boil for about 15 minutes. I then drained it, but kept about a cup of the cooking water.
The Chicken Cutlets with Grated Vegetables in Packages called for:
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast
salt and ground black pepper
4 slices ripe tomato
12 fresh tarragon leaves or about 1/2 tsp dried tarragon, basil, chervil, or dill
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
3 cups mixed grated vegetables such as carrots, zucchini, onion, potatoes, turnips, sweet potato.
balsamic or other vinegar
I used broccoli from the first recipe. I just took some of the broccoli out of the boiling water after it had cooked for a couple minutes. I then cut up onion and potato into cube size pieces. After that I put the broccoli, onion, and potato in a food processor, so they would be in smaller pieces and mixed together.
I preheated the oven to 450. I put pieces of foil on a baking sheet. I then put a chicken breast on top of it. I salted and peppered the chicken breast, and spooned the vegetable mixture on top of it. After that, I sprinkled some vinegar and olive oil on top of the chicken. I sealed the packages and repeated the process five more times to make six packages. I then baked the chicken packages for about 20 minutes.
As I said earlier, I wasn't able to mash the broccoli, potato and cheese sauce, but my mom said she loved the cheese sauce. Even though I didn't follow the directions exactly, it still turned out great. The chicken also turned out really good. It was cooked thoroughly and very moist.
