So after my quinoa fail a few days ago, I was more determined than ever to make a quick and delicious dinner. For people in college, it takes some effort to properly fuel our bodies. My goal is to make meals that are quick, delicious, and nutritious. Today’s dinner was definitely all of that.
- 1 grilled chicken breast, shredded
- 1/2 cup tomato or pizza sauce (I used plain and then sprinkled in some garlic powder and pepper)
- 1 flatbread
- Parmesan cheese to your heart’s content
Set oven to 375. Place flatbread in immediately (no need to preheat!). Bake flatbread for about 10 minutes, until the edges just start to turn brown. Top pizza with sauce, chicken, Parmesan, and any other topping you might desire! Place in the oven on high broil for about 4 minutes, until the sauce bubbles and the cheese melts.
Seriously. This. Was. Amazing. It was super easy for me to get grilled chicken because I took a few breasts from the dining hall today For those of you who don’t have access to a dining hall, you can grill a few breasts on a Sunday (or any other not so busy day) and use them in meals throughout the week. Off the top of my head, a few great ways to use pre-cooked chicken are: chicken quesadillas, grilled chicken salad, or on top of pasta. You could also just reheat the chicken breast and enjoy it with a side of rice, potatoes, veggies, or some really crusty french bread with olive oil for dipping. Hmmm…I think some french bread is going on my grocery list. Dessert
would have been a cookie dough protein bar, but I’m all out, and poor college students can’t always afford protein bars. The dress I bought instead was totally worth it. was a big juicy crunchy apple. Not really sure what kind it was because I also took that from the dining hall. (Shhh, this is our little secret).
I realize that I haven’t been blogging nearly as frequently as I did during the summer. One reason behind the decreased frequency in posting is that I’m busy with classes, work, mentorship, etc. However, I think the bigger reason I haven’t been blogging as frequently is because a HUGE part of my enjoyment in blogging was photography. Now that I’ve been taking pictures with my phone (yes, because it has better picture quality than my camera) instead of a DSLR, I don’t get to enjoy that aspect of blogging anymore. Anyways, I’m still fully committed to sharing my enjoyment and enthusiasm for food with you all, and I’m hoping we can all continue growing along the way.
