Here Goes Nothin'


My very first post. My husband was pleasantly surprised with my first attempt at a blogworthy meal. I promised him I wouldn't compromise his health and would continue to use low fat ingredients if he swore not to mock my post-meal picture taking. It was a deal. Here were the results.


The meal: Garlic, cheesy baked chicken from allrecipes, with a healthy twist. Side items were green beans and reduced fat cheesey garlic biscuits (compliments of MrsPresley). Pretty good for someone who doesn't care for cheese, huh?! We finished off with low fat butterscotch blondies with a low fat caramel sauce. The blondies were good, not great. I wouldn't recommend them without the caramel sauce. The meal was FANTASTIC, if I do say so myself! ;)


Garlic Cheddar Chicken (Allrecipes.com with Marissa Modifications)

2 tbsp butter1 clove garlic, minced
3 tbsp dry bread crumbs
1/8 tsp dried parsley
1/8 tsp dried oregano
1/8 tsp ground black pepper
1/8 tsp salt2 tbsp freshly grated Reduced Fat Parmesan cheese
6 tbsp shredded Fat Free Cheddar cheese
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, pounded thin

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Melt the butter in a saucepan over low heat, and cook the garlic until tender, about 5 minutes.In a shallow bowl, mix the bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, Cheddar cheese, parsley, oregano, pepper, and salt.Dip each chicken breast in the garlic butter to coat, then press into the bread crumb mixture. Arrange the coated chicken breasts in a 9x13 inch baking dish. Drizzle with any remaining butter and top with any remaining bread crumb mixture.Bake 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear.

I am anxious to try the Bourbon Chops; but things have been really busy here, and I haven't gotten around to it!!
