Ingredients
4 to 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 extra-large eggs
1 tablespoon water
1 1/4 cups seasoned dry bread crumbs
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan, plus extra for serving
Unsalted butter
Good olive oil
Salad greens for 6, washed and spun dry
1 recipe Lemon Vinaigrette, recipe follows
Directions
Pound the chicken breasts until they are 1/4-inch thick. You can use either a meat mallet or a rolling pin.

Combine the flour, salt, and pepper on a dinner plate. On a second plate, beat the eggs with 1 tablespoon of water. On a third plate, combine the bread crumbs and 1/2 cup grated Parmesan. Coat the chicken breasts on both sides with the flour mixture, then dip both sides into the egg mixture and dredge both sides in the bread-crumb mixture, pressing lightly.

Heat 1 tablespoon of butter and 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large saute pan and cook 2 or 3 chicken breasts on medium-low heat for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, until cooked through. Add more butter and oil and cook the rest of the chicken breasts. Toss the salad greens with lemon vinaigrette. Place a mound of salad on each hot chicken breast. Serve with extra grated Parmesan.

Lemon Vinaigrette:

1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (2 lemons)
1/2 cup good olive oil
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
In a small bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, olive oil, salt, and pepper.

Yield: 6 servings

Smoothie Recipes from *A Beautiful Mess*

TRIPLE BERRY SMOOTHIE

6a00d8358081ff69e2017d3f996cde970c-800wi

6a00d8358081ff69e2017c356a883c970b-800wi

Needed: Coconut water (frozen into ice cubes, you will need 12), three cups of fresh berries, greek yogurt

Directions: For each layer blend 1/4 cup yogurt, 4 coconut water ice cubes and 1 cup of berries. Add each layer to the cup, rinse your blender and repeat.

GREEN APPLE + SPINACH SMOOTHIE

6a00d8358081ff69e2017c3580fba9970b-800wi

6a00d8358081ff69e2017ee724478d970d-800wi

Needed: 1 lime, coconut milk, 1 granny smith apple, baby spinach, yogurt, ice cubes. Optional: mint leaves.

Directions: For the green layer mix 2 cups spinach (2 giant handfuls works), 1/2 cup coconut milk, 4 ice cubes, 1/2 a granny smith apple (chopped) and the juice of 1 lime. Blend together and add to cup. Rinse your blender and then combine 1/4 cup coconut milk, 1/2 cup yogurt (green yogurt or vanilla yogurt work great), 1/2 a granny smith apple (chopped) and 2-5 fresh mint leaves if you like mint! Blend, add to your glass and garnish with an apple slice.

Note: This smoothie is refreshing and a little tart. If you like your smoothies extra sweet, try adding a teaspoon of Truvia to each layer before blending. Spinach is the easiest green to blend in a sweeter smoothie, but if you don’t mind the “green” taste try baby kale next time!

RASPBERRY + COCONUT SMOOTHIE

6a00d8358081ff69e2017c35b0b9c9970b-800wi

6a00d8358081ff69e2017ee75408dd970d-800wi

Needed: Unsweetened coconut flakes, greek yogurt, coconut water (frozen in ice cubes), fresh raspberries, 1/2 frozen banana.

Directions: For the coconut layer blend 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes, 1/4 cup greek yogurt, 6 oconut water cubes. Add to glass and rinse blender. Next, blend 1 cup raspberries (frozen if possible), 1/2 a frozen banana and 1/4 cup greek yogurt. This layer will be very tart. If you prefer a sweeter taste add 1 teaspoon Truvia before blending. Add to glass. Garnish with coconut flakes.

I received my headphones from Sugar Skull Boutique yesterday and I’m in love with them ♥ I chose what kind of “sweets” , “syrup” and the colors and I’m so pleased with it , I had the choice to either make it look realistic or whimsical and i always go for whimsical! I wanted it to be colorful and delicious. The “cherry Syrup” looks a little brighter in the picture  than it actually is , its a actually a dark red which adds a great contrast with the light colors of the sweets  .

sugar skull never fails to surprise me 😀 I’m in love with them

Thank you so much  Sugar Skull Boutique for this adorable gift!
