Healthified version of Orange Chicken. Yes, I love the orange chicken at Panda Express or any other fast food Chinese joint, so I was wanting to try and make a healthy version for a long while now. I didn't deep fry and only used chicken breast. I used one less tablespoon of sugar than the recipe called for and it still came out sweet. Might try to go even lighter on the sugar next time. The girls loved this dish and I was pretty much a fan too! This will definitely be made again.
Oven Fried Chicken. We've made this many times before and it even looks really fried, but it isn't all and I think taste even more delicious than fried chicken and the best part it's guilt free. The girls get the drumsticks and Ben and I eat the breasts. Our breading (the girls had their breading with a lot less cayenne) has like triple the cayenne than the recipe called for and oh yes, that totally makes it. We love anything spicy!
Week 7/30 - 8/3
Monday: Chile Stuffed Burger
Tuesday: Cold Soba Salad with Dried Shiitake Dressing

I didn't get to cook two of the things that was on my plan this week, so they will get pushed to next week and we have enough leftovers to last us until Thursday, so we are good to go for this week. I forgot to plan for some vegetables, but good thing Ben was able to whip up something fast. Gotta remember to add that food group to my planning. What's a quick vegetable dish you make?
