145.0…Saucy Salsa Chicken

Saucy Salsa Chicken (Serves 4)
Recipe slightly adapted from: Every Day, Rachael Ray
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts (pounded to 1/2" thickness)
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup salsa verde
1/4 cup creme fraiche or sour cream
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season chicken with salt and pepper and cook until golden brown on both sides, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.
2. Add salsa to skillet and cook, stirring, 2 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in creme fraiche or sour cream. Return chicken to pan; cover and simmer over low heat, 3 minutes or until chicken is done. Sprinkle with cilantro.
I also made Mexican Rice to go with the chicken but I found the recipe boring and a bit bland so I'm not sharing it. I made a green salad to go with the meal.
Breakfast this morning was peanut butter on toast with pineapple.
After camp drop offs, I went to a Barre class at the gym. It was nice change of pace. I think I will be sore tomorrow!
Lunch was my usual tuna salad with veggies and ranch.
