We’ve been trying to cook & eat in more recently. We haven’t always succeeded (we got take out from Manchesters tonight~ so good!), but Jason loved our dinner Tuesday night so I thought I’d share. Husband actually said it was in the top three meals I’d made (along with jar spaghetti with Trader Joe’s meatballs & Shannon’s Chicken~ he’s not high maintainence with food!).

Wondering what I made?! {This is almost embrassing!} I got the idea from the back of the Shake N Bake Barbecue Glaze box~ add 3 tbsp brown sugar & 1/2 tsp ground red pepper (cayenne) to the Shake N Bake mix. I used Target boneless, skinless breats. I served it with Kraft from the box MacNCheese & frozen Green Giant veggies. I have to admit, the chicken was REALLY good! The brown sugar gave a little sweetness while the cayenne pepper added quite a kick! Jason, who doesn’t do leftovers, actually had the third breast yesterday for lunch. I meant to take a photo to share, but we ate it too quick!
So if you’re looking for a quick, VERY easy chicken dish, try it!

My mom also gave me an easy recipe when I was home that my aunt made for them at the beach. It’s just a few mostly on hand ingredients & vegetarian. I hope to try it soon!
