Pan-Fried Teriyaki Chicken and Veggies

Tuesday has arrived! And it’s a gorgeous day in Wisconsin.

My intention this morning was to go to yoga, buuuuut it turns out the class I thought was today is actually Thursday. No problemo! Instead I focused on a upper, mid and lower back workout, accompanied with an easy 2.5 mile run.

^My thoughts exactly.

Last night was the BEST. So relaxing. Wonderful food. And the best company ❤

First off, here’s my attempt at peacock pose last night. This pose proved to be difficult, since my hands were trying to turn out, my wrists were giving in to the full weight of my body, and my shoulders (as you can see) are really workin’.

However, the strength I felt in this pose was high; and I can’t wait to keep practicing to nail this! Sometime…

Patrick and I started this AWESOME puzzle last night, and just got the border completed when we called it quits. Sooooo excited, and yes I’m suchhhh a nerd. Puzzles are a blast, and we guessed we’d finish this in a week, so we’ll see how good we actually are (haha).

Now for the main event!

Patrick and I are really great at working as a team when we cook; most of the time, I pick the meat and veggies, slice/thaw/separate and then do most of the seasoning. Then Patrick goes to work with the actual cooking.
Great combo huh??

Our meal last night was chicken and a delicious assortment of veggies. I’m a fan of throwing all kinds of veggies together so I can pick and choose each bite with a new flavor combination each time.

I seasoned the raw chicken breasts with seasoned salt, pepper, creole seasoning, and some hot spicy Slap Ya Mama seasoning. Then I diced up carrots, mushrooms, and onion, and we threw whole portabella mushrooms, peas, and spinach in at the end.

Patrick cooked the chicken in a frying pan with some heart-healthy oils, threw the veggies in to top it off, squeezed some lemon juice on, and poured a bit of gluten-free Teriyaki sauce in to sweeten and spice up the overall flavor.
SO FREAKING GOOD.

And I have all the leftovers for lunch today 🙂 That equates to a happy Shannon.

Peace and love, xoxo.
