If you want a super simple chicken recipe, I’ve got one for you. It was a hit on our table last night.
Garlic Chicken (Serves 4)
Recipe slightly adjusted from AllRecipes.com
2 teaspoons crushed garlic
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup dry Italian bread crumbs
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
- Pound the chicken to an even thickness.
- Warm the garlic and olive oil to blend the flavors. In a separate dish, combine the bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese. Dip the chicken breasts in the olive oil and garlic mixture, then into the bread crumb mixture. Place in a shallow baking dish.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes, until no longer pink and juices run clear.
I served the Garlic Chicken alongside a baked potato (with sour cream and green onions) and green beans. It was a filling, satisfying meal.
This morning’s breakfast was pineapple Chobani (have you figured out that this is my favorite flavor?), Gluten Free Granola and mixed berries.
After dropping the kids off at school, I attended a couple of different events at the school. I was supposed to go to the gym afterwards but I’ve been feeling very run down and exhausted since last night. I decided to give my body a break and skip, although I felt really guilty.
I ran a couple errands and then came home to throw an easy lunch together.
Turkey sandwich, veggies and ranch dressing.
Here’s to hoping I feel better soon! There’s a birthday party I don’t want to miss this weekend!
When do you know that your body needs a break from the gym?
