What's for dinner? 3-15-16

It's spring break and I have 5 year old Tyler all day this week. Love the little guy but he wears me out!

Pretty sure it's going to be Taco Tuesday for dinner. I have some leftover skirt steak to use up from fajitas a couple of nights ago.

What's on your plate?

I picked up some thick pork chops yesterday. They're sitting in some Chinese Five-Spice Powder and I'm going to pan-fry them. I'll serve them with long-grain & wild rice made with chicken broth seasoned with a star anise pod and asparagus simmered in chicken broth and oyster sauce.

Inspired by PF's recent low carb company meal, I'm doing Almond flour Crusted Chicken Piccata tonight, but with an egg wash between coatings. I've been brineing a HUGE Dolly Parton chicken breast, and I'll split it lengthwise before pounding it some. SC will have his on top of rice, and mine will be on wilted spinach. Glorified salads for both of us.

Here's the recipe for anyone interested...

Yum! Homemade pico de gallo on the side to top them off - that didn't make it into the pic. :-)

Low Carb Grain-Free Chicken Piccata | All Day I Dream About Food
This recipe surprised me big time and I enjoyed it so much more with the almond flour breading than I have in the past with flour. The sauce was spot on, and worthy of a 4 four star restaurant. I did use half Chick.broth and half white wine. Hard to believe that one DP breast fed both of us. Well, it weighed 1 lb.

I was totally impressed with the way the dish came out, considering it was the first time Kayelle made it. It was excellent!!!!
