Champaign, OH:  Summer Recipe from Swisher Hill Herbs


Hello from Swisher Hill Herbs,
I think summer is really here! Hot and muggy! With this weather no one wants to heat up the
kitchen. Here is a simple Cajun Chicken recipe that makes enough chicken that you can use for
varied meals throughout the week as a dinner entrée, Caesar Salad, Sandwiches, just get
crea"ve! Got the Grill hot! Might as well just cook once, right!
I some"mes make batch of rice in the rice cooker ( throw a small handful of fresh chopped
herbs on top of raw rice, put steamer basket in cooker, add fresh uncooked Broccoli ’owerets
to steamer basket. Close lid and cook, following Manufacturer instruc"ons. You have a meal!
Enjoy!
Take thyme,
Charlene
