The Dentist and Breaded Ranch Chicken

Those two things totally sound like they go together…….. Anyway.

Yesterday I was super busy running errands and crossing things off my list. Around 10:30, I went to my dentist’s office to turn in a form and decided to ask about scheduling an appointment. I’ve been very very bad and haven’t seen a dentist in 5 years. :/ I missed an appointment one time and never rescheduled. So I knew it was time to be an adult and get a check-up and cleaning…. and Chad forced me to do it. 😉 So the receptionist asked if I could stay for an 11:00 appointment because there had been a cancelation. I didn’t expect an appointment so soon, but I went with it. Of course I ended up needing a filling. That’s what I get for going 5 years without a dentist. Oh well, I go back this afternoon for the torture, then I’m free for another 6 months! 🙂

After my dental appointment, I came home to fix lunch. It looks gross, but I mixed a can of tuna with avocado, black beans, and sriracha. Plus I had some cucumber and strawberries on the side.


After lunch I did some shopping for school supplies and bought a new workout top and shorts from Target. (Like I needed them)

Dinner ended up being a half win and half fail. I burned the broccoli (still ate it though!), but the chicken turned out delicious!


Healthy Breaded Ranch Chicken
Serves 2


-Two 4 oz chicken breasts
-1 egg
-1/4 cup Panko crumbs
-2 tbs grated Parmesan cheese
-1 tsp garlic salt or garlic powder
-1/2 a packet of Ranch dressing mix

Combine Panko crumbs, Parmesan, dressing mix, and garlic salt in a bowl. Dip the chicken in the egg and coat with breaking mixture. Spray a medium heated skillet with cooking spray and cook chicken about 5 minutes on each side.

Let me know how it turns out for you! 🙂

This morning, I got up around 5:30 for some coffee before heading out for a track workout. I ran to the track for my warm-up, stretched, then completed the workout. The run back home was my cool down.


After a shower, I had the usual oatmeal for breakfast.


I’m hoping to spend the morning tackling more things on my lists from yesterday before I have to go back to the dentist after lunch. Wahhh 😦 I know I’m a big baby.

Happy Tuesday! 🙂
