When we think of holiday meals, it’s easy to think of all the deliciousness you can create with the help of Carbonell Olive Oil. I was sent three different “flavors” to use in my holiday cooking.
Carbonell Olive Oil has three distinct varieties each suited to a different cooking need:
- Daringly Expressive Extra Virgin Olive Oil has a rich taste and smooth flavor that will make any dish pop with Spanish personality. Use Carbonell Extra Virgin Olive Oil for salads, dips, marinades and drizzling over finished dishes. When you use the Daringly Expressive Extra Virgin Olive Oil, you give yourself permission to be a more daring and expressive version of yourself.
- Fantastically Light Extra Light Olive Oil has a light taste that will take your meal to new heights. Use Carbonell Extra Light Olive Oil for high-heat cooking such as frying, sautéing, and even baking.
- Distinctly Classic Olive Oil has a traditional flavor that harkens back to the heritage of Cordoba. Carbonell Classic Olive Oil is an all-purpose cooking oil, adding a mild flavor to soups, sauces and grilled meats and vegetables.
Using Carbonell Olive Oil to make the turkey, ensured a delicious turkey with perfectly cooked skin. Doesn’t this just make your mouth water?
However, we are not focusing on the main dish today. Today, it’s all about simplicity. Our big dinner is always on Christmas Day, so Christmas Eve I like to keep it simple. However, I don’t want to sacrifice taste, which is why I love to make Sautéed Chicken with Peppers & Onions or something similar.
It’s such an easy recipe, super flavorful, and only has 5 (yes, I said 5) ingredients:
- Carbonell Fantastically Light Extra Light Olive Oil
- Yellow Bell Pepper
- Green Bell Pepper
- Red Onion
- Tyson Grilled & Ready Southwestern Chicken Breast Strips
To start you pour the oil into a skillet, over medium-high heat. Add peppers and onions and sauté about 3 minutes (adjust time depending on if you like more raw or soft veggies)
Add the strips and sauté just until chicken is heated.
This meal is ready in about 15 minutes from start (chopping veggies) to end because the chicken is fully cooked. I love how simple this meal is to make, so when I am busy in the kitchen for Christmas (or any other holiday), the night before I can take it easy without sacrificing taste.
You can serve it over rice, add some stir-fry sauce, or even some more veggies *Fresh green beans are AWESOME*. I want easy and I want tasty, I just make this meal. I get both and you can too. What are some of your favorite “Easy, during the holiday” meals?
