I feel like Chicken Tonight

Yeah Chicken tonight :) 


Ok does anyone remember that commercial? Have I just dated myself? As I told you all before I am allowed to have a few meals of chicken so I decided to mix up a different options. 

With day 8 coming to a close - Tomorrow marks 7 days if not 6! till stage day!


I've been feeling pretty exhausted these days...taking it as best I can - My knees are starting to hurt from all the cardio and I am not recovering as fast. Its a good thing that I've taken three days off work next week to be able to prepare and sleep! On top of exhaustion, its been really difficult to get through my meals. For some reason I am just not hungry…I mean I am (hungry), believe me but I think it may just be boredom of looking at tilapia.  


Anyways, Last night I prepped three different types of chicken that I will be Pan "frying" or baking in the oven


One: "Chicken Wings" I saw this recipe HERE - Becca is a fellow figure competitor, so thought I might as well try this out! I marinated my chicken in The red hot overnight and then I added some Club House Tex Mex Seasoning and made in a non-stick pan.



Two: Harissa and Tagine inspired chicken with cilantro  (I love me some spicy food so this will be baked and stuffed with Zucchini yummmy!)



Three: dash of olive oil, paprika, salt, green onion - I am going to stuff this with some broccoli florets - rappini and mushroom that I had going on the stove




What's your favourite way of cooking chicken? I am always looking for recipes!

  1. I wish I could tell you a story about chicken, but I don't eat it.  Back when I did, my favourite way was a Wendy's spicy chicken sandwich ahahahaha.  Bet that doesn't help you much the week before competition...

    And yeyeyeyeye to the meet-up at the end of the month!  Caaaaaan't wait!

    Oh yum, you must be so excited to eat these  meals!!  I'll have to get recipe #2 for you because I am usually a bit clueless when it comes to spices. I made honey-lemon chicken thighs with rosemary last night. It would probably be a post-competition recipe  for you on account of the honey. Will post on my blog shortly.

    I'm a vegetarian so I gave up chicken but like someone posted below back when I did eat it I loved Wendy's Spicy Chicken Sandwich.

    P.S. We are having a giveaway on our blog.  I hope you will jump over and enter.

  6. I love this recipe of chicken.
    I always cook my chicken in a slow cooker (crockpot) due to the fact that I can add a variety of spices and flavors with water and the chicken is cooked without oil and still moist.
