Doesn’t that look delicious? I had a lot of fun coming up with this simple dish. The ingredients reminded me of shepherds pie, but different enough it’s more what I imagine a farmer would be eating.
I have been horrible at meal planning this year. Thank goodness that wasn’t one of my resolutions right? I was trying to go with something quick and easy last Saturday. I succeeded with both quick and easy prep time, but I forgot to thaw the chicken, so cook time took a lot longer than expected, which resulted in PB&J sandwiches for dinner that night. The chicken and vegetable’s made a great “leftover” lunch on Sunday though.
One of the fun things about this dish, was because of it’s ease to put together, I was able to recruit some help in the kitchen from Princess V. She had a rough day and needed some special time with just mom and her attention. Before we tossed everything in the baking dish, we decided to try out my new Salt and Pepper Grinder from Ozeri. I have never owned a grinder, but I recall how fun they were as kid to twist.
The Ozeri Duo Ultra Salt and Pepper Mill and Grinder fits exactly what I needed. So many recipes call for salt and pepper to taste, with no measurement. So I tend to be pouring it into my hand and pinching some into my dish, and then dumping what was in my hand into the garbage. What a waste! I mean I realize a tiny bit of salt or pepper in the garbage isn’t that big a deal, but I still hated doing that. With the Ozeri Duo Ultra, I’m able to give it a twist or two, and feel confident that there isn’t too much salt or pepper.
Princess V had a lot of fun pouring the salt into the mill. It was pretty easy too! The top pops straight off, and the bottom cover converts into a funnel for the top to keep the salt and pepper separated while pouring them in.
Once we had the salt and pepper in, I let Princess V toss in the rest of the ingredients and then give a couple twists – we may have ended up with a little extra salt, and not as much pepper – of the grinder over the top. I hope you enjoy this easy farmers meal as much as we did.

Meal planning can be very freeing, I hope you are able to get into a habit this year. Great little recipe and I like your new grinder. Mine is wood and it's chipped, yours looks it will hold up for a long time.
Thanks Diane. The Duo is built very well. I know life was smoother when I menu planned, so I've got to get back to it.
That grinder is awesome! I would love to have one, and my husband would love it more! Hope your princess feels better! Tammy at http://creativekkids.com
Thanks Tammy. I think she's just trying to find her "space" in the family, and was acting out big time. It's hard splitting yourself equally between all your kids.
I know how that goes–how many kids do you have a gain? Thanks for linking up with the Tasty Tuesday's Link-up. I have pinned your post to the Tasty's Tuesday's Pinterest Board!
I have 4 kids all 2 years apart from each other
Looks delicious! Can't wait to give it a try!
Let me know if you like it! I loved the simplicity of it, but it really was a great medley of flavors.
That Ozeri Duo looks like something I would fall instantly in love with. I used to plan all of my meals in advance and it really saved a lot of time. I can't for the life of me figure out why I stopped. 🙁
I ask myself that same question so many times!!! I really need to start menu planning again.
I want that grinder! I love my peppermill but having an all in one would be great. This definitely looks like something I would make!
