Balsamic Chicken Tenderloins
Since I didnt go to training last night, I will just jump right into dinner.
I was weirdly craving mashed potatoes. I rarely make them just because I am ridiculously impatient to wait for potatoes to boil. But the craving was so intense, that it had to be done.
I boiled some red potatoes for what seemed like forever and mashed those babies up with some garlic. I even added a little bit of gravy. I’m not a big gravy fan but sometimes it just goes.
I also had some little chicken tenderloins that I marinated in some balsamic dressing (Newman’s Own).
I placed them in a flat dish (ok, Tupperware) and covered them with balsamic dressing and then sprinkled with some garlic powder and a little black pepper and let them sit for about 20 minutes before sauteing them in a pan (about 3 minutes on per side since they are small).
The chicken turned out super moist, you could cut it with a fork!
And of course I had some steamed broccoli and sliced tomatoes on the side.
I dont know what is going on but this week I have been waking up really late every morning. Just pretty much dragging myself out of bed at the last possible moment because I just havent been sleeping that great. I’m thinking a new (more comfortable) mattress may be needed ASAP.
Regardless, I have my gym bag packed up to hopefully leave work a couple minutes early again to make it to the earlier training!
- What is your favorite way to eat potatoes? (mashed, french fries, baked, etc)
Mashed for me, or baked!
- Gravy – yay or nay?
- If you are having a hard time sleeping or dont feel rested, what is usually the cause?
I rarely have issues sleeping but when I’m not feeling rested it is usually because I am having a hard time getting comfortable, am sick, or sometimes when I’m stressed I dont sleep well either.
