The 5 in 10 Chicken Breast Cookbook

Last week Carson and I went to the library and I happened to pick this book up from the cookbook section. Amazing!
I highly recommend this book if you don't like to spend a lot of time on dinner or a lot of money at the grocery store. All the recipes have 5 ingredients or less and they are quick to make (hence the title). --I have always wanted to use the word 'hence'. I feel so medieval.
Anyway, I am becoming more organized and wrote out my dinners for the next ten days along with picking up all the ingredients. I have promised Justin that we will not eat chicken more than two days in a row... luckily his dad has supplied us with quantities of buffalo. If only I could find a 5 in 10 buffalo cookbook I would be set.
Here is the recipe I tried so far and it was surprisingly tasty... very German tasting:


4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
Salt and freshly ground pepper
1 large onion
3 Tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon caraway seed
1 cup dry white wine

Pound chicken breasts slightly to flatten evenly. Season with salt and pepper. Thinly slice onion.

Heat butter in large frying pan. Add chicken and cook over medium-high heat, turning once, until browned, about 2 mins per side. Push the chicken to one side of the pan, add onion and caraway seed and stir to coat with butter. Cover and cook over medium heat until onion is softened, 2 to 3 mins.

Add the wine and cook over medium heat, uncovered, until the chicken is cooked through and liquid is slightly reduced, 2 to 3 mins longer. Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve.

Yummy and VERY QUICK!
