#eatfreahca #soulfood dinner! Low cal-healthy and easy! 

So in an effort to eat healthier my diet has gotten pretty bland. My kids aren’t happy, sometimes I’m pretty unhappy with it…it’s all bad. So I found this website eatfresh.org and I browsed through some of the recipes until I found a couple soul food recipes that really just hit me in my soul!

I’m planning a trip to South Carolina and I have to say the part that I’m looking forward to the most is the food! I will not pretend that this rendition is just as good or that my cooking skills could ever equal that of a experienced southern chef,  but this is as close as I’m ever going to be able to get. And it’s low calories and easy! All a must for me.

So I started out with oven baked fried chicken!

Raw chicken is gross.

So here is the recipe as shown on eatfrech.org:

This is what my chicken looked like in the fridge. Pay close attention to the fact that you need to let your chicken sit in the fridge for an hour!!! I almost missed that and I would’ve been MAD!

So while that is baking, I started on my Carribean Casserole!

Here’s what that looked like for me:

It smells so freaking good.

While that is simmering, I started on the biscuits!

Now, if you’ve looked at my previous experience with biscuits….it didn’t go so well last time.

This time I’m hoping is MUCH better!!!

We shall see.

I brushed them with butter…just a little bit. I probably shouldn’t have but I did. Stop judging me.

So this is what the chicken looks like halfway done with the foil off!

I mean it’s definitely not going to be fried chicken because it’s not fried LOL but I think it’s going to be delicious it sure does smell good 😊 

So now time for the rating!!!

The “fried” chicken turned out super good! Same with the casserole aaaaand the biscuits!!!!!! Woohoo!!!! Mom for the win!!!
