Messy Pan Teriyaki Chicken

Last night didn't go as planned. I was supposed to go to a family game night with my in-laws but had to cancel because we had too much going on. I had to meet somebody for work and then had to meet with a friend to discuss the wedding this coming up this weekend. I may have neglected to mention that my husband will be DJing our friend’s wedding, so we ironed out most of the details last night.

Despite the last minute changes to our plans last night, I did have an awesome first day of August! 

I ate dinner at home and stayed within calories for the entire day. I ended the day at 1,519 calories and my max is 1,550. I was happy with my results, especially since I got to have a treat while still being within calories. I believe that knowing I would be holding myself accountable for my dinner choice really helped, too.

I made a new recipe that I sort of just "threw" together. I have decided to call this recipe "Messy Pan Teriyaki Chicken". If you decide to make this recipe, you'll know why I am calling it that.

The mixture for the chicken involved this:

2 tbsp Hickory BBQ sauce
3 tbsp honey
3 tsp soy sauce
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp onion powder
pepper to taste

The chicken turned out great, the pan... didn't.

Tonight, we will be attending the rehearsal dinner for the wedding. I heard the bride mention pizza and wings for dinner. That’s going to be a tough one, but I’m going to do my best. So far, I've been tracking all of my food intake for the day and water intake. Day 2 of August and I’m on the right track!
