Lemon Pepper Surf & Turf

Alright so I finally got to cook again!
It seems like we have gone out to dinner a lot lately so I think its time for me to get back to it and start cooking some good meals for my parents
Tonight I made a lemon pepper surf and turf of tilapia and chicken along with green beans and some good grains
My dad bought a lemon pepper salad dressing the other day and I figured it would be good on some fish or chicken so tonight I tried both!
well I made both because as you might know my mom very much dislikes fish so for her sake I cooked a chicken breast along with our fish
To make the fish and chicken I just rubbed both down with the lemon pepper dressing and and sprinkled with salt and some more pepper.
I placed my chicken breast on a lined baking sheet and baked a 375 for a bout 25 minutes then about 10 minutes in I placed the fish on the sheet and finish baking them with the chicken
(mind you I used frozen fillets of fish so simply follow directions on package or if fresh cook until opaque and firm)
For the green beans I just blanched them until tender then sauteed them in a pan with some scallions, garlic, salt and pepper
and for the grains I cooked bulger with sauteed onions and garlic and chicken broth until tender then I seasoned with salt and pepper and some lemon juice to tie in with the fish and chicken
So that was dinner and it felt really good to get back in the kitchen and do what I do best which is using my creativity to make a great meal from whatever I find
