Neighborly Chicken – Rebecca J. Clark

A neighbor from our very first house, years ago, gave me this recipe, but I can’t for the life of me remember her name. It’s become a go-to recipe because it’s quick to put together, it tastes great, and it never fails–and it’s fast to cook.

Dijon Mustard & Melted Butter (I use a bit more dijon than butter…)

Parmesan cheese (the shake type)

Seasoned breadcrumbs (I like Panko, because of the crunch)

Boneless, skinless chicken breasts

Preheat oven to 500 degrees.

Spray bottom of casserole or cake pan with Pam. Dip tops of chicken in dijon/butter mix, then into cheese and breadcrumbs. Place bare side down in pan. Bake for 15 minutes.




Haunted by a tragic accident 20 years ago, John Everest knows he doesn’t deserve a family of his own, so he spends his days building the most successful fitness franchise in Seattle…and his nights alone. But that all changes when Samantha Rossi storms back into his life.

Happily single, Samantha feels there are only two types of men in this world: those who are good for nothing and those who are good for one thing. Now she needs that one thing desperately, because she wants a baby. John, a man from her past, is the perfect donor. He doesn’t want children. He doesn’t want a wife. He just wants her body. She can deal with that.

John agrees to Samantha’s no-strings-attached proposal, never expecting to fall for the fiery beauty he’d wronged so many years ago. It’ll take more than a shameless proposal to overcome their tragic past, but with a little luck and forgiveness, anything is possible
