Crispy Baked Potato Chip Chicken
Life is busy. Even when (or maybe even especially when!) you decide to step back and re-focus on priorities. Since I made the decision to leave my agency work and focus on full-time blogging, I’ve discovered my days are just as busy as ever. It hasn’t taken long to get into a new rhythm that includes quite a bit of time in the kitchen. I’ve been doing a fair amount of baking and improving my cookie and cupcake decorating skills—fun stuff. But for some odd reason, Mike and Sam still think they need to eat meals!
Actually, I enjoy cooking as well as baking but I came to a quick realization that even though I’m now home more, fixing meals cannot take up a huge block of my time or I won’t reach my new goals. Most weeknight meals need to be quick and easy. I feel good about a meal heavy on fresh vegetables and a protein and then a later snack of fruit and nuts. We all like chicken and there are a lot of ways to change up the taste.
Last week I made crispy baked chicken drumsticks. My guys both gave it a thumbs up (me too!). The addition of a simple spring mix salad with a bit of crumbled feta and balsamic dressing had us enjoying an easy and satisfying weeknight meal, something that is especially welcomed during the busy holiday season.
