It's about love, it's about compassion, it's about kindness, and faith. It has nothing to do with luck. You get what you give…

So give good.

Tuesday at the Table

Lovely Yellow Ribbons

Not to toot my own horn or anything (toot toot!) but I made some pretty tasty chicken for dinner tonight. It was a new recipe, so I didn't post it earlier in case it didn't turn out. It is also a Weight Watchers recipe so it's not so bad for you either. I will definitely be preparing this meal again!

Baked Chicken

Use fresh herbs and lemon juice to give plain baked chicken fantastic flavor. This combination of flavors also works well with turkey cutlets or white fish filets.

♥ 1 lb uncooked boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (four 4 oz pieces)

(I actually used a lb of chicken breast tenderloins-- they're small and nicely sized, just like chicken fingers, and cooking big hunks of chicken breast kind of creeps me out because I'm always afraid of undercooking it)

♥ salt and pepper

♥ 1 t. olive oil

(I omitted the oil and just spritzed the chicken with olive oil cooking spray)

♥ 2t. lemon juice

♥ 2 t. rosemary

♥ 2 t. parsley

♥ 1/4 c. chicken broth

(I used chicken stock, as the commissary was out of broth)

♥ 1/2 medium lemon, quartered for garnish

(I nixed the lemon quarters)

1. Preheat oven to 400. Coat a small, shallow roasting pan with cooking spray.

2. Season both sides of chicken with salt and pepper. Transfer chicken to prepared pan and drizzle with oil; sprinkle with lemon juice, rosemary and parsley. Pour broth/ stock around chicken to coat bottom of pan.

3. Baked until chicken is cooked through, about 30 to 35 minutes.

It was absolutely delicious! I served it with steamed peas and carrots that I seasoned with chopped onion, salt, pepper, and parsley. I love parsley and put it into everything I can, ha! It was a pretty tasty, low-calorie meal.

In other news, I started today off with a wonderful surprise-- I won Crazy Shenanigan's pillow case giveaway! I was so happy and can't wait to get it. They're absolutely lovely and I think that I'll purchase some in the future for gifts. I absolutely love bed linens! Thanks again, Jennifer!

Also, Christine is starting a blog review of The Husband Project by Kathi Lipp tomorrow and I can't wait to do that. I've been meaning to for a while but haven't. I haven't even started the project officially but I read the book and it's already had such an impact on our marriage. I'll be doing a review for The Marriage Project soon and am excited about that too!

  1. The recipe sounds yummy! And what do you know I was surprised to see my name on your blog! haha I'm excited to hear what you think about Marriage Project and what your plans are for the Husband Project!!

  2. You're welcome! I'm hoping to get it out to you in the mail this week!

  3. That chicken sounds delish! I have some tenders in the freezer right now, so I'll have to try that out!
    The husband project seems like it would be pretty awesome to do. This may be a silly question, but is there a book to buy?

  4. nevermind that question... that really was a silly one... I got it.
