Let's Eat

Crispy Honey Lemon Chicken

Last night I made this dish and it turned out amazingly all the lemon and honey flavors were perfection! 

For the Crispy Honey Lemon Chicken I made Long Grain & Wild Rice, some Broccoli that I steamed over the stove with salt/pepper and added a slice of lemon to the plate.

Honey with Lemon zest dipping sauce for the chicken is Amazing!!

Serves 4-6


4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into pieces
1/4 cup olive oil + 3 tablespoons
3 tablespoons honey + more for dripping/drizzling
the juice of 2 large lemons
1 tablespoon fresh lemon zest + 2 teaspoons
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 cup all-purpose (or whole wheat) flour
2 tablespoons cornstarch

In a bowl, combine 1/4 cup olive oil, 3 tablespoons honey, lemon juice, 1 
tablespoon lemon zest, and a 1/4 teaspoon each of salt and pepper. Whisk 
ingredients together, then add chicken pieces to a ziplock bag and pour marinade 
over top. Let sit for 30 minutes – 2 hours.

When ready to make, add flour, cornstarch, 1 teaspoon lemon zest and the 
remaining salt and pepper to a large bowl. Mix well. Heat a large skillet on 
medium-high heat, and once it is very hot, add 1 tablespoons of olive oil. Coat 
chicken pieces in the flour mixture, then add to the skillet and cook until each 
side is golden brown, about 3-4 minutes per side. Remove and set chicken on a 
paper-towel covered plate.

Serve with rice, your choice of veggie &a few tablespoons of honey mixed with lemon zest for 

I'm usually against dessert after dinner, just think that's how you bring on the pounds.. =/ 
The only way ill make something sweet after dinner is if we ate earlier or at a decent hour cause some days we eat as late as 8.30-9 and if the dinner I made was light and healthy. 

We ate around 7ish so for something sweet i just sliced up a few strawberries and drizzled them with honey and added a couple leaves of mint. The mint adds an amazing flavor to the strawberries and honey.

Retail Therapy this month

Its no secret.. I Love to Shop

I love a new piece of clothing, I love to wear new things, but I do love to be frugal
Love to find great things for a great price! 

So here are some things I bought this month at least things I remember buying this month..
I have a bad memory :-/

This dress i bought at Marshall's for $20.. Great place to shop!
But... I still haven't worn it cause i feel as if it looks funny on me.. I like dresses to be longer on me so i got a medium.. But it seems to be fitting wrong on me, kinda to large. Need to find a great belt for it maybe then it'll fit good. 

This two dresses were $13 each at Forever 21. 
Dark purple and a brownish gold color. Both go all the way down to the floor, have only worn the purple one so far but excited to wear the other one when it gets a bit cooler out.
They go great with a belt and some cute bracelets. 

Blazer from Cotton on for $30 I believe.. 
Fits great and excited to wear it for fall. Below is a close of pic of the material. 

My fav blouse from Forever 21.. Dont member the price. 
But fits perfectly and goes with everything!

Maxi skirt also from Forever 21 $12.
Love the material and looks great paired with the blouse above or a tank and belt. 

Dont member where i got this one.... 
But a fun skirt with pockets. 

So I'm not a fan of jeans.. I only wear them when i have to like if its super cold out..Only wear them like 2-3 months out of the year tops. Well as much as i dont like them it was time to get some new ones before it gets cold and these were a great deal at Pacsun. Buy one get one free, one pair was $49.50. So two pairs of jeans for $50 not bad. They fit great and feel very nice on.  Got one pair flared and other skinny. Need a pair of skinny's for boots. 

Got this lovely bracelet at Forever for like $3....
Gold, my fav color..  
 {Side Note} Check out my nails.. Did them my self pretty proud of how they turned out. Nude with Gold tip.{Side Note Over}

Check out my sexy watch with brown leather straps. 
Got this one at Macy's for $55 & I Love it! 
Really wanted a all Gold or Rose Gold Micheal Kors watch but kinda got over it, seemed like every one had one so i decided to go for something diff. 

Me and Hubs got these bracelets at Cotton On for a dollar each he got a brown and I got a blue and pink with charms. It was for a charity cause.

Brown heels at Marshall's for $30 i believe.. 
I love them super comfy and go with everything. 

Later i'll do a post on the products and make up i also bought this month. 
Some I  liked and some not so much...
