Cod in a tomato cream sauce

Cooking with Chicken or Fish

I don't know about you but I'm a really busy person that dose not have time to always spend time in the kitchen even though I'm a chef. ...Hey I know what your thinking ....he is in the kitchen all the time ...and that is true but that time is making things for other people not me or my family, With that being said What would you do if you could make one basic sauce then create two different meals with totally different taste , .......Well you can and I'm going to take you step by step on how to make some great tasting meals quick and easy using some basic ingredients and some chicken and fish.....Follow me.


1 tablespoon of olive oil

1/4 teaspoon of fresh black pepper

Pinch of salt

10 ounces of cream cheese

3 Ounces of tomato juice

2 Ounces of fresh basil ( chopped fine )

2 cups of frozen peas or 2 cups of sliced mushrooms

4 small boneless chicken breast ( for one meal )

4 small pieces of cod or pollack fish totalling one pound.


Making A Simple Sauce

Combine the cream cheese, tomato juice, and the fresh basil to a skillet and warm up until it is hot but not boiling ounce hot place on warm then set to the side.

Now it's time to make your meals

For the chicken heat oil in large nonstick skillet on medium heat. Add the chicken breast, sprinkle with pepper and a pinch of salt. Cook 5 to 6 min. on each side or until the chicken is browned on both sides and has a temp of 165 degrees. Remove from skillet; cover to keep warm.

Add cooking sauce to skillet; cook and stir 2 min. Remove 1/4 cup of sauce; set aside. Add sliced mushrooms and rice to remaining sauce in skillet; cook and stir 3 min, or until heated through.

Spoon rice mixture onto platter; top with chicken and reserved sauce.

Now for your Fish, All you have to do is add your olive oil to a large skillet get the skillet heated and add the fish to the pan and cook for 3 to 4 minutes per-side then follow the same instructions as to cooking the chicken but use the peas in to the sauce .

You really have to try this dish its a two way meal deal all rapped up in one and its super simple to make and if you want to take it up a notch you can add diced tomatoes to the chicken dish or a squeeze of lemon into the sauce for the fish, You can also make this sauce in advanced then freeze it for a later time....Either way you like it enjoy.......Happy Eating.
