Tasty Thursday - Orange-Crumbled Baked Chicken



Well Do to the fact I have a busy busy day ahead of me.. and this is a recipe I tried one week ago today and fell in love with it (so did everyone else that was at my house to eat it), I am using one that I just posted on my May Day weight loss challenge. It is worth posting it twice, better yet it is a Weight Watchers recipe!






Orange-Crumbled Baked Chicken
4 servings
2 T orange juice
2 T Dijon Mustard
1/4 t Salt
3/4 Cup Whole-Wheat Cracker crumbs
1 T grated orange zest
1 Shallot finely chopped
1/4 t freshly ground pepper
4 3 oz skinless boneless chicken thighs or breasts

1- Preheat the oven to 350F, Spray cooking spray on nonstick baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.

2. In a small bowl, combine orange juice, mustard, and salt. On a sheet or paper plate, combine the cracker crumbs, orange zest, shallot, and pepper. Brush the chicken on both sides with the orange-dijon mixture, then dredge the chicken in the crumbs, firmly pressing the crumbs to coat both sides. Place the chicken on the baking sheet, bake 15 minutes, turn over and baked until cooked through 15-20 minutes longer.

Per serving: 179 cal, 4 gr fat, 1 g Sat Fat, 1 g trans fat, 59 mg Chol, 518 mg Sod, 20 g total Carb, 3 g fiber, 16 g Prot, 18 mg Calc.

WFMW: Kitchen Organizer


I got this Kitchen organizer, The sunflower one because my kitchen has sunflower accents, but that is not why I got it.

I got the organizer because i have a closet in which the top shelf is filled with cook books, I do not use all of them all the time, but there are a few which I do use often, one main one being a Weight Watchers cookbook.

But the main reason I got it is because i need a good place to keep my Weight Watchers point tracker & information close at hand instead of just laying on the kitchen counter, because that in itself annoys me to no end. This is going to be so great because as I need immediate WW council I can just pull it out and reference. I can just pull out my most used recipes right there, and I can keep my shopping list at hand to write down what I need next shopping trip. This is what works for me!!!! I am a bit of an organization freak.. Well not hugely but in my mind I am, and things really bother me if they are not organized!

weight loss challenge - week 2
Ok so the scale is stuck again.. Well I lost 0.5 lbs but that is disappointing.

I did however start working out more.. Wanted to today but my back is killing me, so today we'll have to settle for taking the boys for a very long walk in the very heavy double stroller.

I haven't been writing down my points, I've been just calculating them in my head which I know hurts my weight loss, so STARTING TODAY I VOW TO MYSELF TO START WRITING DOWN EVERY SINGLE POINT~! I also have not been drinking as much water as I should.. I hate to do this but Cory has been sick and I just get lazy when he's sick because I want to be with him as much as I can. Although that is not an excuse at all. I hope to have a much better weigh in day next week. However I am going to share some yummy WW recipes every time no matter what.. This one i made last Thursday and it was Awesome!!!

My Flower Garden
Of coarse I will add pictures, once my flowers are fuller, but since they were just planted I just figured I would share what I have planted. First as you can see we have 2 hydrangea bushes. In between we have wild grass.

Today I planted tall yellow daisy looking flowers,
Inpatients, Petunia's & Dianthus Raspberry & Strawberry colored. I also planted two rose bushes. One is a Coral Color and the other is a deep pink. There are two hanging flowers, one are the small yellow flowers, and another is a flower i can not seem to find pictures of.. Blue flowers in a big grass like bushel. I love the time of year to plant my flowers, and watering them and watching them grow.
It's a little indulgence to me to have a little flower garden to take care of each spring/summer season! Of coarse my 3 yr old Guy helped me plant them today which was alot of fun for him~~~
