Don’t get too excited- I am still camera-less. Corey was nice enough to let me use his iPhone for tonight’s picture, which, for those of you who know him, is a HUGE deal! No one touches his beloved iPhone.
Anyways, I felt that I needed to blog about my dinner tonight simply because it was just SO easy to prepare. On top of that, it was healthy and low-calorie. It doesn’t get much better than that!
The #1 thing that people say to me when I tell them that I have a cooking blog is “Oh, how nice- I wish I had the time to cook!” If they don’t say that, the #2 thing I hear the most is “I would love to cook, but I never know what to make!” Well, I think it’s safe to say this meal is a solution to both of those problems.
Granted, I did not actually create this chicken recipe or the sides, but I did take the help of good old pre-packaged foods from the grocery store- the healthy kind, of course! I picked up a package of 4 chicken cutlets. I was planning to marinate them, but then I headed down the spice aisle and came across this guy:
I am a huge fan of the original Shake ‘N Bake, but I had never tried the BBQ Glaze before, and I was intrigued. I headed over to the frozen foods section and grabbed this:
Along with my all-time favorite dinner item, which I blogged about in a previous post:
When I got home, I followed the instructions for the chicken, which instructed me to bake the chicken at 350 degrees for 20 minutes, after shaking (duh- shake…and bake!) While the chicken finished cooking, I microwaved the potatoes for 5 minutes, and then poured half of the frozen broccoli florets in a bowl with a little water and microwaved for 3 minutes. That’s it! Dinner was ready in 20 minutes, and I am happy to say that it was not only delicious, but it was under 400 calories! YAY for quick, easy and healthy dinners!
