My, oh my...oh my. This past weekend has been s-t-r-e-s-s-f-u-l to say the least. This whole "nursing school is just around the corner and I still have a billion things to get done" thing is definitely leaving me feeling short of defeated most days.
Howeverrrrr.. it's all worth it and quite frankly, I wouldn't change the stressful days and sleepless nights for the world. I'm one step closer to pursuing my dream career and I'm PUMPED.
Between getting what seems like endless vaccinations (ouch) to memorizing thousands (maybe over-exaggerating a little) of medical terminology words, I'm surprisingly still finding time tend to my taste buds.
I mean...most days, I'm getting by with a few bites of a granola bar and a jar of overnight oats buuuut in the midst of the craziness, I found time to make this Sun Dried Tomato and Garlic Stuffed Chicken and it was FABBITY FAB ♥ ♥
Growing up in England, one of my favorite memories was coming home from school to the mesmerizing smell of garlic butter oozing through the house.
I always knew that it only meant one thing. Mom was making chicken kievs and it pretty much just clarified that she loved us.
This recipe isn't exactly the same as a chicken kiev but it utilizes the best parts of the recipe, then throws in some added ingredients to make it that much better.
I decided to add sun-dried tomatoes to really kick up the flavor and substituted the butter for lite vegetable oil spread.
The traditional kiev recipe usually requires that you fry the chicken prior to baking in order to get the flour layer extra crispy.
I found that substituting the flour with panko breadcrumbs allows us to not only reduce those calories, but also still have that deliciously crispy crust without the need of a frying pan!
