WFD? Comfort Food & Redemption Dinner

Hubby has been feeling a bit under the weather, so Monday night I made one of his favorite comfort foods--Fried Chicken, Mashed Potatoes and Macaroni and Cheese.  Now, I know I just posted about our goals, one of which was for me to cook healthier meals.  And I'm aware that our dinner consisted of two starches and a fried food.  But, I thought I'd meander around this one goal in hopes that it might make Nathan feel a little better.  Besides, we used the treadmill later and didn't feel the least bit sorry for eating those delicious fried chicken parts.  So there. :)

For the recipe, check this post.

To compensate for our misbehavior, I decided to cook up a low-fat option for Tuesday.  This was a new recipe, and I'm happy to say that although it lacked in fat it did not skimp in flavor.  It was super-fast to throw together, too!

Honey Glazed Chicken Stir Fry--adapted from Better Homes and Gardens Breast Cancer Awareness Cookbook

  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 TBSP honey
  • 2 TBSP vinegar
  • 2 TBSP orange juice
  • 1 TBSP soy sauce
  • 2 TSP all-purpose flour, for thickening
  • 2 c. frozen broccoli
  1. Cut chicken into bite sized pieces; set aside.  In a small bowl, mix together honey, orange juice, vinegar, soy sauce and flour; set aside.
  2. Drizzle about 1 TBSP of Extra Virgin Olive Oil in a wok or skillet and heat.
  3. Add broccoli and cook 3 minutes.  Remove broccoli from pan and set aside.
  4. Add more oil to pan to coat.  Add in chicken and cook while stirring for 4 minutes, or until no longer pink.
  5. Pour sauce into wok with chicken and stir.  Add in broccoli and cook until heated through and vegetables are crisp.
  6. Serve over white or brown rice.
