Sunday Supper: Back-to-School Meal!

Happy Sunday, everyone! It's been a busy week filled with school parent meetings, soccer scrimmages, shoe shopping, and our school's end-of-summer festival. I haven't stamped anything in four days!!! That WILL change this week -- when my kids go back to school! They are in three schools with three starting dates -- Kyle on Tuesday, Megan on Wednesday, and Anna and Caroline on Thursday! Crazy!

My Sunday Supper recipe, therefore, is an EASY one -- perfect for those first days of back-to-school! Serve it with pasta, salad and bread for a quick and tasty meal for your busy family! :)


Crisp Garlic Chicken (from Southern Living Busy Mom's Weeknight Favorites)

1 tsp. bottled minced garlic
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp. pepper
4 (6-oz) skinned and boned chicken breasts

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Combine garlic and olive oil in a small mirowave-safe bowl; microwave at HIGH 30 to 45 seconds or just until warm. Combine breadcrumbs, cheese, and pepper in a shallow dish. Dip chicken in warm olive oil; dredge in breadcrumb mixture. Place chicken on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake at 425 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes or until chicken is golden.


This morning we're going to an open house to meet Caroline's kindergarten teacher! I can't believe my baby is starting kindergarten! I hope you have something great planned for your day! Thanks so much for stopping by! :)

Have a great day!
Christina

Oh, thank you! I wanted to make a chicken dish today and this just fits the bill and I happen to have all of the ingredients.

I just had to post that I did try this for dinner this evening and my husband and I both loved it. Thanks for sharing.

Recipe sounds good! I remember when my baby went to kindergarten. Part of me was sad but part of me was happy for a little alone time!

Bought the ingredients for this today, Christina! And hugs re: your baby starting Kindergarten. I have another year to go before that, but know I will be a total mess. I cry every single first day of school as I take those pictures. Of course, I cried over every single tooth Truman lost, too... *sigh* Guess I'm just one big crybaby when it comes to my boys!
