Workin' It Out

Melting Away & Finding Myself

What I Made Monday

This Monday I made one of my most favorite meals in a long time.  It’s called Crispy Panko Chicken, served with Balsamic Green Beans and Skinny Potatoes, again all courtesy of emeals! Each recipe was 6 servings.

I totally forgot to take pictures until we had the chicken on our plates and lil’ man was asking for seconds.

You need:

1 C panko breadcrumbs
1/2 C shredded Parmesan
1 1/2 lbs chicken breast meat, pounded thin (I cut mine into strips instead and it worked quite well)
2 T olive oil
1 tsp salt (I omitted this and we couldn’t tell)
1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 C Dijon mustard
2 T water

In a shallow dish, toss together panko crumbs, cheese, olive oil, salt & pepper.  In another shallow dish combine Dijon & water.  Coat chicken in mustard mixture and dredge in panko mix.  Bake on sprayed (absolutely, or use parchment paper) baking sheet 25-30 minutes at 400 degrees or until golden brown. (Per serving: 225 Calories, 8 grams carbs, 10 grams fat, 27 grams protein)

I served this with Balsamic Green Beans (also from emeals) which consisted of microwaving a 16 oz bag of frozen green beans and tossing with 2 T balsamic vinegar, 1 T brown sugar, 1 t Dijon mustard, 2 t olive oil, salt & pepper.  Yum! (Per serving:  29 calories, 4 grams carbs, 2 grams fat, 0 grams protein)

We also had Skinny Mashed Potatoes.  Peel & dice 6 medium potatoes.  Boil until tender (mine took about 20 minutes) then mash with 3/4 C fat-free chicken broth and as much garlic powder as you want.  Salt & pepper to taste.

The family review went well!  Lil man even gobbled up the green beans and wanted more of everything.  Hubby & I also loved everything.  Ate the last of the leftovers today and I think I’ll have to make more.  It was super yummy!
