I need dinner ideas for tonight...

I'm out of ideas for dinner tonight, here's what's in the fridge:

• frozen boneless skinless chicken breasts
• yolk-less egg noodles
• lemons
• more campari tomatoes than you could possible imagine
• spaghetti
• panko bread crumbs
• assorted bell peppers
• onion, garlic, carrots, parsley
• kale
• about 2 tbs of heavy cream leftover from a recipe
• avocado
• pomegranate seeds
• cheddar cheese

Thank you, chowhounders!

  1. I'd do a version of chicken cacciatore with sauteed chicken bites, onion, bell peppers, tomatoes, maybe some chicken stock or white wine. Serve over pasta.

    1. This is an easy one! Saute the onions and garlic and tomatoes. Add the chicken. Finely chop the kale, add near the end. Put over spaghetti. Put lemon and parsley on after dish gets plated. S+P, glass of vino, enjoy

      1. Or... depending on where you are and how long you have until you need to put dinner on the table, how about a hearty vegetable-chicken soup?

        That would use your onions, garlic, carrots, peppers, tomatoes, kale, and chicken breasts, and you could even add the egg noodles, too. Mmmm I'm rethinking my own dinner plans now!

        1. i know i'm too late, but i'd still like to play :)

          for crudite, some cheddar crisps

          for a starter, stuffed roasted peppers with bread crumbs, some al dente finely chopped noodles, veg of choice, and a bit of cheddar cheese if desired.

          i'd do a spaghetti with chicken and tomatoes in a kale pesto (use garlic, onions, kale, parsley if desired) finished with a bit of lemon

          avocado mousse with a pomegranate syrup for dessert

          what did YOU end up doing?
