If you look closely you'll see that there are a whole lotta carbs in the picture up above. I love carbs and it's no secret. Keep reading to find out about my potato and zucchini fries plus a chicken caprese grilled cheese.
As with all my other recipes, measurements aren't something I bother with. First I chopped my potato up into bite size pieces. I then tossed them in olive oil, panko bread crumbs, salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, and parmesan cheese. Then I spread them out on a foil-lined cookie sheet and threw them in the oven at about 450 degrees. While those started browning I started work on the zucchini.
For this I took one small zucchini and chopped it into quarters. For the "breading" I crushed corn flakes, added Italian seasoning, a dash of garlic salt, and parmesan cheese. I dipped each zucchini spear into olive oil and then into the corn flake mixture. once the potatoes were about halfway done I took them out and threw the zucchini onto the cookie sheet and put them back in the oven.
While the veggies were cooking I made the main course. I took two slices of cracked wheat sourdough and put a slice of mozzarella on each piece of bread. On one side I put sliced tomato (seeds removed, right mom?) and some torn up fresh basil leaves. On the other side I put some sliced lemon herb chicken breast meat. I let each piece cook on its own so that the cheese melted evenly on both sides. Once everything was starting to melt I put the two pieces together and let it all cook together.
It all went together really well. Lots of carbs, lots of cheese, a decent amount of veggies, and even some protein. Nope, not the healthiest meal but it sure was delicious. The sandwich would be really good with tomato soup and the veggies are pretty basic and would go well with anything.
