8 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
1 teaspoon lemon pepper ( I like to use the salt free kind)
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon lemon zest

Flatten each chicken breast to 1/4-inch thickness between sheets of plastic wrap or waxed paper. Sprinkle both sides of chicken with lemon pepper.
Heat skillet sprayed with non-stick spray over medium-high heat. Cook chicken, lemon juice and zest 15 to 20 minutes, turning chicken once and stirring juice mixture occasionally, until juice of chicken is no longer pink. (if it starts to burn, lower the heat and cook longer)
Serve chicken topped with juice mixture.  You can also top with some lemon slices and chopped nuts.

Another Banana Bread….or is it Cake?

This is unbelievably moist!  I baked it like bread, but it was more cake-like in consistency.  This is great bread for eating low carb. If you need fats, spread some natty PB on top 🙂

2 cups unsweetened vanilla greek yogurt (or just plain greek yogurt)

1 egg

1 cup wheat bran

4 scoops whey (I used vanilla scivation)

1 very ripe banana

1 tsp Baking powder

1 tsp (or more) of Cinnamon

1 tsp vanilla

1/2 cup (or to taste) splenda for baking

Mix everything in a blender (or blend with a stick blender).  Pour into a loaf pan sprayed with non-stick spray.  Bake at 350 for approx 45-50 min.
