Menu Plan Monday


It was tough to stay on track with weight watchers last week. I gained 1.5 pounds (not too shabby I guess). So we are back on watching what we eat and excersing. I hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving! For more recipe ideas, please visit our host Laura @ www.orgjunkie.com.

Veggies

Lemon Pepper Chicken
4 Tbsp. breadcrumbs
2 Tbsp. grated Parmesan
1/4 tsp. cracked black pepper
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 egg whites, lightly beaten
2 tsp. butter
1/2 fresh lemon, cut into 4 pieces

Mix bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, and pepper on a medium plate. Coat chicken breast with egg whites and dip into the breadcrumb mixture, coating both sides well. Melt butter in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add chicken breasts and cook until golden brown on both sides. Try to turn only once to avoid losing the coating. Squeeze 1 piece of lemon over each chicken breast and serve. Makes 4 servings.


Herbed Pork Chops
2 Tbsp. flour
1/4 tsp. ground sage
1/4 tsp. dried thyme
4 to 6 boneless pork chops
2 Tbsp. margarine
1 can cream of chicken soup
1/2 c. water
2 to 4 c. cooked long grain rice

Combine flour, sage, and thyme in a shallow pan. Coat pork chops lightly with flour mixture. Melt margarine in a 10 inch skillet over medium heat. Add pork chops; cook 10 minutes until both sides are browned. Push chops to one side of skillet and spoon off excess fat. Stir in soup and water, stirring to loosen brown bits in pan. Cover and cook 10 to 15 minutes or until chops are tender. Server over hot cooked wild or white rice. Serves 4 to 6.
