Good evening everyone! WOW. This was quite possibly the fastest day ever!! I got into work at 7:30 and the next time I looked up, it was already 1:15! Where does the time go?!
I’m happy to report that lunch was super spectacular today. The pepper jack cheese + blueberries were an insane combo, which I highly suggest you try! I was comfortably full (thanks lentils!) until I got home and started on dinner, which was inspired by this recipe – for Lemon Chicken with Whole Wheat CousCous!
Oh yes, Trader Joe’s made another appearance tonight! I used some whole wheat couscous I picked up this weekend to make a lighter-than-air, pillowy-soft bed for my sautéed chicken.
All I did was sauté some chicken breasts that I had seasoned with S&P, onion & garlic powders, for about 5 minutes a side. When those were done, I removed them to a plate and added 1 1/3 cups chicken broth + 2 Tablespoons lemon juice to the hot pan.
After that reduced for awhile, I took it off the heat and stirred in ~1 tablespoon of buttahhhhhh. Meanwhile, I microwaved some couscous and steamed from fresh broccoli. Remember when Ben inhaled couscous? Good Lord, that was hilarious!
When everything was ready, I spooned some couscous onto my plate, added the chicken on top and drizzled the lemon sauce over everything. My brocc stood guard on the edge of the plate. 😉
You guys – this was insaaaaaaaanely good! The couscous soaks up all the lemon sauce and the garlic powder in the chicken seasoning was such a great complimentary flavor. The whole wheat couscous is super nutty and delicious too, but don’t fret if you can’t find the WW kind – regular couscous is great too!
OH – HA! Speaking of tv, while I was cooking dinner tonight I watched Kids Jeopardy. Can I just tell you how much I love KJ?! I can answer every single question!! One of the girls playing today was wicked smart…like, too smart…it was crazy.
Do you like trivia? Do you like watching trivia shows?
I LOVE trivia – I think that’s probably why I love BLURT! so much. Normally I kind of hate game-type shows (Deal or No Deal gives me massive anxiety) but I love shows like Jeopardy and Who Wants to be a Millionaire!
Have a faaaaaab night everyone!
