I am a foodie, I love to make my own sauces and purees but I have a weakness, powdered Bernaise sauce. Don’t judge, I have tried making my own, it was good (and much more difficult) but when I crave Bernaise I want the Knorr green, red, and yellow packet. I was shopping in Publix the other day and heard over the loudspeaker that the Aprons lady was making some kind of fish with a Citrus Bernaise. Sounds delicious, I thought, so I changed up my menu a little to include it. I always have packet in the pantry as well as some sort of citrus in the fruit bowl. Here is what I came up with…
Chicken with Citrus Bernaise Sauce and Wilted Spinach
For the chicken
2 T olive oil
2 T lemon juice
1 t salt
1/4 t black pepper
1/2 t dried thyme
Mix together pour into a large zip lock bag and add 4 – 6 chicken cutlets. Seal and refrigerate 30 min to 2 hours. Grill over medium high about 5 min per side depending on thickness ( alway check temp with a meat thermometer to ensure doneness).
1 package Knorr Bernaise Sauce mix
1 c milk
6 T butter
1T Orange Juice
1/2 T lemon juice
1/2 t zest from orange and lemon
fresh parsley (if desired)
Follow Bernaise sauce directions, then add juices and zest stir and cook about 2-3 minutes over low, add chopped fresh parsley if desired.
1 T olive oil
2 bags washed baby spinach
1 t garlic
salt and pepper
heat oil in a large skillet over med high,
add spinach and garlic and cook over low heat, stirring constantly until spinach is just wilted. Remove from heat, do not over cook.
Place spinach on plate, top with grilled chicken and ladle Bernaise sauce over top.
** This would be great with grill fish as well
