The day that the sun never came out

Another lazy morning where the entertainment options aren't that fun. So I Stick to home duties and hang on in here 'cos the afternoon is already on.
With the nasty weather outside the least thing I can think of is to go out for food shopping.
A quick pick in the freezer and voila! I have chicken breast as pretty much the only option on the menu... how exciting is that?
Chicken breasts aren't the most tasty or fun meal to cook, so what a heck do I do with this?
Google it!
In 0.23 sec google gave me 14,900,000 results with the key "chicken breast tasty"...
Obviously no-one in their perfect mind would go through nearly 5 million of results, so I don't know why
they even bother...
Anyway, in the first page I found the so popular top 10 of chicken breast recipes.
The draw gave me the marvelous:

"Blood orange chicken salad"

As mentioned above chicken breast was one of the few things in the fridge so all the rest was pretty
much made up, but
anyway I mention the recipe just as a reference.

So here's the improved recipe:

1 - Prepare the Vinaigrette: In a small bowl, whisk the juice of one orange, 1/2 red onion chopped, 3 soupspoons of olive oil, 1 soupspoon of vinegar, 2 teaspoons of mustard, 1 teaspoon of orange zest, salt and pepper to taste;

2 - Marinate the chicken breast with a couple of tablespoons of the vinagrette for 20 minutes.

3 - Throw the breast in the oven (200C), adding salt and pepper. 5 minutes on each side.

4 - Boil the Pasta;

5 - Boil the veggie medley! A salad can also be used alternatively.

7 - Cut the chicken breasts in eatable pieces;

8 - Cube a nice chunk of cheese;

6 - Mix everything in a large bowl - Chicken, pasta, veggies, cheese and the rest of the vinaigrette.

And enjoy your new tasty and exquisite chicken salad...
