Chicken Ooh-la-la

I learned a few things today.

Chicken is hard to photograph.

It's just gross.

Maybe fried chicken would look good.

But fried chicken is time consuming. 

And anyway, I don't know how.

But Chicken Oooh-la-la.

I can make that.

The next thing I learned?

The original French expression Oh-la-la (imagine a little dots over each a) means - oh dear, oh my, oh no! The literal definition means - oh there there.

But I thought it meant something good.

Didn't you?

So I checked out that icon of American correctness: The Urban Dictionary.

Guess what it said?

 - a universally understood way of saying "check out that hot peice of ass!"


I thought it just meant - "something good this way comes."

At least I got the spelling right.

And this chicken?

It's right, too.

Get your stuff.

4 large chicken breasts
1 package of Boursin - garlic and fine herbs
4 tbsp apricot jam or preserves

  1. Let the cheese come to room temperature.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Salt and pepper the chicken lightly. Spread cheese on each breast to completely cover, and then spread with apricot preserves to coat cheese lightly and evenly.
  3. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray and bake 25 minutes.  Do not overcook.  Serve immediately.

Yep. This is what it looks like before you put it in the oven. Except I didn't use Pam. Or oil. Or anything.

And this is what it looks like when you serve it with spaghetti squash.

Still looks gross.

But it tastes great.

Tastes great!

And it's soooooo easy!

Well thanks for the definition of "Ooh La La". I always thought it meant something was "fancy".

And thank you for the link on the word boursin so I wouldn't have to google it myself.

Karen, this looks so good! I wouldn't have thought to pair the apricots with chicken but I like both of those flavors and now I can't wait to try this. Your salad looks amazing as well. I'm totally sharing this! Thanks so much for linking up to the Something to Talk About Party.

So, when I say "Ooh, la, la" as I serve up my chicken, I've been telling everyone to look at that nice piece of ass on a plate. Yum. (Your ass on a plate looks delicious, by the way!)

Kirby Carespodi said...

YUM! (Which I guess could be said about a nice piece of ass too, but that's just gross.)
