Trust me, you don’t have to be basic or a bitch to enjoy this easy and comforting weeknight recipe for Basic Bitch Chicken.
I have debated for a while if I should share my news out loud here on the blog, but I’ve let my readers in on my life for the past almost seven years so I decided that I should. I am in the process of a divorce, and I moved into a new home about six weeks ago. There has been lots of change in my personal life, but I have to say that this round of change has been all positive.
With a new kitchen has come a bit of a learning curve and so I’ve had to go back to the basics for meals when my kids are here. This chicken dish is the first thing I made for them, the night before the first day of school. Neither myself nor my kids can resist chicken with mashed potatoes and gravy. It’s comfort food at its finest.
Through all the change and ups and downs I’ve gone through in these past few years, I have not lost my sense of humor. If anything, it’s gotten more pronounced because I’ve had a lot of pain I’ve had to turn on its head – to get to the other side. It struck me as funny thinking about how basic this chicken recipe is – like it’s kind of ridiculously stupid to even share. So that’s why I am calling it Basic Bitch Chicken. This video was floating around a few years back. Hopefully it gives you a good laugh.
