Looking for Easy Chicken Dinner Recipes? Here is one of them: Seared Chicken with mixed vegetables. Not only is this recipe easy to make; it is also quick to prepare.
To sear or searing the chicken means to scorch the surface with an intense amount of heat to a point where it is nearly burnt. This method cooks the outer part of the chicken real fast while preserving the juice and flavor inside. It only takes a few minutes to cook both sides of the chicken (make sure to add a few more minutes to ensure that heat reaches the center of the meat); this can be compared to the time spent in frying boneless chicken slices. As for the mixed vegetables, I always use packaged frozen mixed veggies. All I do is melt butter in a pan and put-in the vegetables.
If you are thinking how the flavor of the chicken will be when you sear it, the answer will depend on the seasonings that you will use. The recipe below details the seasonings needed as well as its measurements. Follow the recipe and step by step procedures in order to get the best possible results.
