Today’ mission: Making Yummy Chicken Breast
Chicken Breast is said to be one of the healthiest proteins you can eat.  Ninja agrees with this but struggles to make it more appetizing because it lacks rich flavor.  That’s why Ninja decided to make a delicious mushroom sauce.  To compensate for the plainness of the meat,  Ninja uses Herbs de Provence and crisps up the outside by cooking for 7-8 minutes per side.

Ninja found these!
