Healthy Breaded Chicken

Saturdays around our house are what I like to think of as “Daddy” days. Cody works a lot through the week so Elijah gets his quality one-on-one Daddy time on Saturdays.

Saturday’s also happen to be the day Cody has to get some projects done around the house. So really Saturdays are Super Daddy days.

Did I mention that Cody most often also cooks supper on Saturdays? And I get a few more naps in?

This little guy loves to wear his Daddy’s hats

 

Like I said, Saturdays are Super Daddy days.

Cody is the type of chef who likes to throw a little bit of this and a little bit of that in the pan and Presto! We have supper. Sometimes I consider it a winning combination but other times my Dutch, simple foods taste buds can’t quite handle his concoctions.

Tonight he came up with a winning combination.


He combined some soda crackers with some oatmeal and hemp hearts, added a few spices, and then blended it all in our Ninja blender. He called it his own version of Shake n’Bake.

As a bonus tonight’s dinner also fit into our new Isagenix lifestyle. Dinner was both satisfying, low calories, and high in protein.

But let’s not waste anymore time. Here is the recipe as provided to me by Cody.
