14523221_10100106000488099_5590087458305758382_nIt’s a new recipe coming at ya! Dustin and I have committed to trying at least one new recipe a week! As a family of 4 we tend to get into the same routine of dinners and lately our kids have been bored and let’s face it, we have been a little bit bored with the same meals too! So lately we have been really focused on our nutrition. Like cutting back on a lot of the excess carbs and sweets. I have noticed my focus has been really off and if I feel that way then I know my kids are effected too. So, whole foods, very little to no processed foods and just a system detox has been in order!

So here we go! Are you ready for the recipe?!!

 

1 lb. chicken breasts

1 TBSP. olive oil

Warm olive oil in the skillet and then add your chicken breasts to the hot pan. We are pan searing so pan needs to be hot. Sprinkle the chicken with some garlic salt and black pepper. Mrs. Dash would taste great too! Cook approximately 5 minutes on each side then transfer it to a greased cookie sheet and put into the oven on 350 degrees for about 15 minutes or until fully cooked.

While the chicken is baking put bacon into a skillet and cook according to the directions. We use organic, no nitrates, antibiotic free bacon. We get it at Target! Cook according to your liking and then pour out 1/2 of the bacon grease and leave the rest in the pan. Toss the asparagus into the skillet (yes with the grease!) and put a lid on it. Steam for about 6-8 minutes or until asparagus is tender 14550551_10100106273181619_1765720814_owith a fork.

Last step! We made sweet potato fries to go with it as a side! So we either use Alexia brand or we make our own! This time we used the pre packaged ones! Cook according to directions which is about 25 minutes at 425 degrees!

 

VIOLA!!! Served 4 people and we had left overs!!
