Sesame Chicken

Tonight’s recipe was provided by Oxygen Magazine. I tried out their sesame chicken and thought it would be easy and filling. I’m trying to up my protein intake, so this recipe fit the bill with a whopping 39 grams.

  • 4, 4 oz boneless, skinless chicken breasts (cubed)
  • 2 tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp smooth peanut butter
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • Juice from 1/2 lime
  • 4 tbsp unbleached flour
  • 3 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1/8 tsp four-blend pepper
  • Canola oil cooking spray

Combine the peanut butter, soy sauce, sesame oil and lime juice in a food processor. Pour onto a plate. Mix together the flour,seeds and pepper blend onto another plate. Dredge the chicken cubes in the sauce mixture before dredging with the flour.

On a cookie sheet, spray the chicken with cooking spray and bake at 450 for about 20 minutes. Serve with veggies! Rice, of course would be good too!

The chicken was good, but would have been better with a sauce of some kind. Oh, well, I guess that’s what you get from a fitness magazine Smile Still yummy though!

Today…

I received my first purchase from Haute Look. The site is an “exclusive” members-only designer sale boutique that offers specialty clothing at a discounted price. This is much like Rue-la-la or Ideeli.

This little black dress is from TART and is the Paulina dress that sells for $200 in store. I got it for $55. It fits great and is very easy to wear. It also came with the cute, tan belt! I highly recommend seeking out Haute Look for designer brands! You can’t beat a good deal!

At school, I stopped to take a look at his labyrinth of beer, wine and liquor bottles that is on display at the lot where I currently park. It is a very interesting concept, but I just wish I understood what it is there for. Maybe drunk driving?? I have no clue, but I liked it!

Meanwhile, I went to the SLC to study and daydream by the pretty windows. Don’t you love them?

Baked Orange Chicken

Tonight for dinner I planned on trying a new recipe that I thought would make a great weeknight meal. I found this recipe on All recipes and tweaked it a little to make it my own.

The chicken was really flavorful and the sauce thickened into a wonderful, citrusy gravy that was delicious. I ate the chicken alongside roasted asparagus and for some carbs, I ate multi-grain toast with butter. Simple and easy. Perfect for a busy schedule.

Baked Orange Chicken

  • 2 or 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts (or thighs like the original calls for)
  • 1 cup of orange juice ( I used Indian River…my favorite!)
  • 1 packet of onion gravy mix (1 oz. packet)
  • 1 Tablespoon of balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder

Mix the juice, gravy mix and seasonings together. Pour over chicken and bake in a dish for 1 hour at 350 degrees.
