Recipe of the week - Lemon Parmesan Chicken

Happy Sunday, everyone!  I hope you all are having a wonderful relaxing day today.  Guess what??  I was featured over at Babes and Sages!!  I have loved getting to know Sophie and it is really cool, because she is from Germany living in America and I am American living in France!  Anyway, I don't write too much about my life here on my blog, but I shared a bit there, so go check it out!

I have decided that Sundays is going to 'Recipe of the Week' day.  I know it's not that clever and it doesn't rhyme with Sunday or anything, but I actually enjoy cooking every once in a while, but I am not creative enough to share more than one recipe a week.  So I am going to share with you all the best, easiest recipes I have.  Two key word, best and easy.  Gotta love that.  This one is super easy and it's from Martha Stewart, so you know it is gonna be good.  Here is what ya need:

1 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves, chopped
1/4 cup plain bread crumbs
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
grated zest of lemon, about 1 Tbsp
4 bone in chicken breast halves (about 3 pounds)

I don't measure things exactly in my recipes, and if I don't have it, I sub something for it.  Living in France has helped me be a bit more creative!  This recipe I didn't use flat-leaf parsley, I used homemade wheat bread crumbs, more lemon, and since we don't have breast halves, I used leg and thighs attached, closest thing to it here. 

So super simple:  Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  Mix parsley, breadcrumbs, Parmesan, and zest.  Season the mixture with salt and pepper.  Carefully loosen the skin of the chicken with your fingers and tuck the mixture under the skin.  Season the chicken with salt and pepper.  Place in roasting pan and bake until skin is crispy and the chicken is cooked through, about 30 minutes.  Et voila!!  In the future, I will try to have pictures fo the steps, but this seemed pretty easy.  Here is a pic I took of the final:

I is super yummy and super easy, two of my favorite things!!  If you have any recipes that you would like to be featured, please e-mail me!  I would love learning new recipes and featuring other creative minds!

Don't forget to link up any projects you have tomorrow!!!  I would looooove to see what your working on!  Have a happy Sunday!

hey natalia! sometimes, the mineral content of the water where you are can really affect what goes on with your hair. a few things you can do are: use a clarifying shampoo- get one at a beauty supply store. if you shampoo everyday, use it once a week. it strips the oils and product buildup from your hair and scalp. after you use it use your normal shampoo.

another thing you can try is to use conditioner still, but focus on your ends.

also if you are using pantene, its REALLY waxy! most people don't know that if you use it religiously, it makes your hair so greasy and flat

and YES! that updo would work fantastic on long hair. Just make more pincurls in the back. it looks great when i have my extensions in
