146.4...Zesty Citrus Chicken

I didn’t get a chance to share my cooking class experience I had at Great News before I left for Cabo. The class was called “Zesty Citrus Chicken” and was taught by Phillis Carey. Each recipe had some sort of citrus element in it and everything was delicious!

The first recipe was Oven-Fried Asian Walnut Crusted Chicken Breasts with Ginger Lemon Sauce:

Great chicken recipe! The sauce was a bit too sweet for me but that could easily be adjusted. 

The next recipe was Spicy Rubbed Chicken Breasts with Chipotle Orange BBQ Sauce:

This BBQ sauce was fabulous!!! If you didn’t want the orange flavor, it could be easily left out but it did make for a unique taste! Makes me exciting for summer so I can start grilling outside again.

Next was Pecan Chicken Breasts with Orange Rosemary Sauce:

The sauce was fabulous! The chicken was good too!

Next up was Thai Green Chicken Curry with Lime Leaves and Fresh Lime Juice:

This one was my favorite! It was all things that are great about Thai food: spicy, sweet, salty, sour. I can’t wait to make this at home! It was easy too!

Dessert was Lemon, Lime and Orange Cheesecake with Almond Crumb Crust and Strawberry Sauce:

Really good! Loved the almond crust!

Fast forwarding to yesterday…..breakfast was scrambled egg beaters with salsa and cheddar cheese.

I took the kids to school, then went to spin class. It was nice to workout after all those days indulging in Cabo!

I ran some errands then went home for lunch. Tuna salad, celery sticks and pickles:

Dinner last night was Trader Joe’s Orange Chicken, brown rice and broccoli. Their Orange Chicken is a staple in my freezer.

I threw the leftover broccoli in my eggs this morning.

My daughter hates eggs and is disgusted by me every morning. She hates broccoli too. She was more disgusted than ever this morning. 

Right now I’m off to another cooking class at Great News!

What food(s) can you not stand the smell of?  Bananas!!!!

I'm surprised you don't like the smell of bananas. I don't really like the smell of eggs or broccoli but I like to eat them once the smell has dissipated lol. I'm sure there are other smells I can't stand but these are some of the common ones.
