This weekend was entirely too busy for me! The last day of school for the kids was Friday. My son’s baseball banquet was Friday night, Summer celebration parties with friends were on Saturday and Sunday afternoon was spent at the waterpark. Busy Busy Busy!!
Despite of my very full schedule, I did manage to carve out some time for working out. Friday night I got a brisk walk in on the treadmill (1.85 miles in 30 mins), Saturday was my day off from working out. It worked out good because I spent most of the day not feeling well. And Sunday, the hubby and I rode our bikes (6.86 miles in 33 mins) and I did a few strength training excercises with him using his free weights. I’ve never really worked out with weights before and my arms still feel tired!
I cooked all weekend which saved us from eating out. Friday night, the kids were craving chicken tenders so I made us an oven-baked alternative that was really good. I took my chicken tenders and seasoned them with salt, pepper and garlic and coated them with Miracle Whip Light salad dressing (just enough to cover each piece of chicken). Then I rolled them in bread crumbs (I combine regular bread crumbs and Panko crumbs to make them a bit crisper after cooking). Next, bake them in the oven at 375 degrees until the are browned. There you have it oven baked fried chicken. They were really good.
