Started off this week being sick, so I haven't been posting as much. Tuesday night, I decided to cook up a double batch of chicken breasts since I still wasn't feeling good, but wanted some healthy options for eating on during the week. Half got just a basic marinade of Italian dressing along with some Fiesta Fajita seasonings, the other half got Lou Malnati's Sweet Vinaigrette that my secret santa sent me. Figured that would get us at least 2 meals.

Chicken for fajitas, didn't get any plated up pics.

Lou Malnati's chicken with some rice and hominy (i do not like hominy, I discovered)

Rest of the write up is Here BTW...I've lost almost 10 pounds this week. Could be the eating less and eating better, or being sick or a combo of both, who knows? But I'm excited.

The Lou Malnati's vinaigrette sounds interesting. Does it have a noticeable sweetness or is "sweet" more of a marketing term? I'm going to be in Chicago in 3 weeks and if I have the time I might stop in a grocery store to see what regional items are available.

I should do more batch cooking on the weekends. It's something I do on occasion but mostly any weekend food that makes it to Monday and beyond counts as leftovers. :wink:

Sorry to hear you've been under the weather. Hopefully you're back to 100% soon.

It was very sweet. I won't use it as a marinade again, and probably won't use in on a salad. I've heard great things about their pizza, but they can keep their vinaigrette.

Great job on the weight loss. Not sure if I've ever had hominy... Chicken looks great.
