I intended to sauté Tyson boneless, skinless chicken breasts with mushrooms, red bell pepper, and onion last evening. Laura decried this notion, crying out for the chicken breasts to be grilled. I sprayed the chicken breasts with olive oil Pam and seasoned liberally with Tony Chachere's More Spice. I grilled them on the indoor grill for 10 minutes per side. I made a casserole of sliced white onion, sliced yellow squash, sliced red potatoes, and a head of whole, peeled garlic cloves. I seasoned with Tony Chachere's More Spice, Italian seasoning, and ground black pepper and baked in the microwave. It was a delightful meal. The grilled chicken was delicious. I was pleased that Laura requested that it be grilled. It was charred nicely on the exterior and moist and tender throughout.
