Tonight's post will be short and sweet, but as promised I wanted to give you a recipe to try.
I got my first weekly meal plan after redeeming my Groupon from "The Fresh 20". We have spent some time today following all the meal preps for this week's meals, chopping veggies, cooking rice, etc. It has been time consuming, but will be well worth it this week to make cooking quick and easy!!
Tonight's recipe is Chicken Milanese with lemon broccoli rice. It is baking away in the oven right now and smells and looks amazing!
Adapted from "The Fresh 20" website:
1 LB chicken breast, (2 breasts sliced in half)
1tsp kosher salt
2 cups bread crumbs
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1 Lemon, zested and juiced (kept separate)
1/2 tsp paprika
Pinch of black pepper
1 TBS water
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil and lay out chicken pieces. Season both sides with salt. On a large plate or baking pan, combine bread crumbs, Italian seasoning, paprika, pepper and lemon zest. On another plate or pan beat 2 eggs with the water. Dip the chicken in the egg mixture, then into the bread crumbs. Place onto the baking pan. Bake for 10 minutes, then turn and bake for an additional 5 minutes. If your chicken is thick, you may need a few more minutes but bake until no longer pink in the middle. Drizzle cooked chicken with fresh lemon juice.
For the broccoli, make one bag of steam-able broccoli. Add 2 cups cooked brown rice. Mix together. Add about 2 TBS of fresh lemon juice, 2 TBS of olive oil and a pinch of black pepper. A little garlic powder would be good too. Serve with the chicken.
Unfortunately, no workouts this weekend but tomorrow I will be back at it!
Tomorrow I will be talking about real sugar vs. artificial sweeteners.
Good Night and Stay Active!
