Measure-In Monday | Week #2

Well, folks, we’ve got some good news and some bad news. The good news is I lost 2 and a half inches all over… the bad news is I didn’t reach my daily water intake last week, so this week, I’m sticking with that as my goal until I can manage an entire week without missing a day!

Last week was a trial, given the stuff going on with the house we’re currently in, and moving within the next week. It’s been stressful!

But my husband and I had our anniversary yesterday, so we went to this restaurant in the town we’re moving to. It was so good! I got this veggie filled cajun alfredo with blackened chicken, and my husband got a classic chicken fried steak. Our eldest ended up with this huge mac n cheese burger!

A few bites in and I was filled to the brim! Obviously I took the rest home for leftovers lol

This week is going to be heavy on the packing so I probably won’t upload my workouts, but I assure you, they are getting done! Until next time!

Spicy Chicken: Two Easy Ways

I’ve been on an adventure trying to come up with ways to make pretty much all of my food as spicy as I can handle and these two chicken recipes have gotten me pretty darn close to perfection.

This is pretty basic, and definitely not a complicated recipe but you’re going to get your hands messy, so prepare yourself!

This is a great recipe if you need protein for meal prep. This calls for just enough for one chicken breast each! My significant other thinks the hot cheeto one is too spicy, but the cayenne one was just right for him!

Spicy Chicken

Ingredients:

1/2 tablespoon cayenne
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon garlic pepper seasoning
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
One chicken breast

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Rub the chicken breast down in the oil
  3. Combine cayenne, black pepper, and garlic pepper in a bowl and mix together
  4. Rub the seasoning on the chicken breast
  5. Place in the oven for 35-45 minutes (I’d suggest checking every five minutes to see how it’s cooking)

This goes great with angel hair pasta!

Hot Cheeto Chicken

Ingredients:

1/4 cup Pancake mix
2 1/2 tablespoons of Grated parmesan cheese
1 1/2 cups Hot cheetos
1 Egg
1/4 Salt
1 chicken breast
1 tablespoon water

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Place your Hot Cheetos and parmesan into a food processor (I use a blender so it’s not as well crushed), set aside in a bowl
  3. Whisk together pancake mix and salt
  4. Whisk egg and water (I strongly suggest using a wet hand and a dry hand for this next part
  5. Coat chicken in flour mixture, then dip into egg mixture, and finally dip into Hot Cheeto/Parmesan mixture
  6. Place chicken on a greased (or buttered) baking sheet and bake for 35-45 minutes

This chicken goes well with rice dishes!

I hope you enjoy!
