One Grilled Chicken-Two Simple Dinners

What more should I say? The title says it all. We love grilled chicken. Mostly, during the weekends, I grill about a couple of lbs.of chicken which we use for dinners and lunches. I use them for sandwiches for lunch and throw in some steamed veggies with garlic bread for quick and easy weeknights' dinners. Saturdays, I marinate boneless chicken breasts with Italian seasonings, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, Olive oil and balsamic vinegar. This is my go to marinade. Always, always have used this one. Leave the chicken overnight in the fridge, grill them on my trusty George Foreman Grill( which I bought from a garage sale for only $2, yay!) Sunday afternoon. They are all done in under 30 minutes. And I am ready to face half of the week's lunch and dinner challenge. I do the same in summer time but grill it on my outdoor bbq. Life's been pretty hectic as we leave for work at 6 am every morning and come home at around 5 PM. Inclement weather which is very normal in Canada could make us get stuck in traffic and come home very late. We have our supper at 6 pm and then I start cleaning up the kitchen, getting ready for next day and so on and so forth. If I have a main dish ready to go, sides I can throw in in no time!

The rolls in these two dishes were made out of Pillsbury crosssaint dough. The first one, I simply use the same cheese and tomato mixture on top of the chicken inside of the crosssaint dough, with some more seasonings and bake them. The 2nd one, is rolled up in a ball, with sprinkles of garlic and parmesan.

First dish has a simple sauce of tomatoes with salt and pepper. 2nd dish has the cream sauce with saffron and garlic.

Again, for all the foodies, who cares about the recipes?!
