What I Eat In A Day: Roasted chicken with white beans and tomtaoes

Hello!

Come with me and I’ll show you what I eat in a day. I also want to share two of my favourite meals with you!

Let’s start off with breakfast. In the morning I’m not hungry at all so the first thing that I do is drink a big glass of water to wake my body up.

Then I have a coffee or a cup of milk with cocoa powder (which is my favourite!).

Then I’ll probably get hungry before lunch time, so to fill my stomach a little I make some chamomile tea.

Lunch time! If you’re a chicken lover as I am this meal will light up your day.

The recipe is slightly adapted from Taste Food blog.

Ingredients:

  • 5 tbspoons extra-virgin olive oil (even more)
  • 1 coffee spoon garlic powder
  • 2 coffee spoons sweet paprika
  • 1 coffee spoon ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoon salt (divided)
  • 1 coffee spoon mix peppers (crushed)
  • 1 cup Greek yoghurt
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 4 large chicken breast (boneless)
  • Tomatoes (any kind, but cherries work better)
  • A can of drained and rinsed chickpeas or white beans

Sauce and Greek yoghurt sauce

  1. Whisk oil, garlic powder, sweet paprika, cumin, 1 teaspoon salt and crushed pepper in a large bowl.
  2. Transfer 1 tablespoon to another to another bowl.
  3. Mix that oil with the yoghurt and the same amount of mayonnaise (put the mayonnaise in the yoghurt cup so there’s the same amount of yoghurt and moyonnaise).

Chicken

  1. Heat the oven to 450ºF or 250Cº.
  2. Slice the chicken and put it in the bowl with the oil sauce (not the Greek yoghurt sauce) to mix everything with your hands.
  3. Place the chicken on a baking sheet with oil underneath.
  4. Clean and peel-off the tomatoes, then cut them in half or cubes.
  5. Put the tomatoes and the chickpeas or the white beans around the chicken.
  6. Add salt and oil.
  7. Put in the oven for 20-30 minutes.
  8. Serve with yoghurt sauce.

After lunch and before dinner I’ll probably make tea and eat whatever is around like tea biscuits or cheese or an apple.

Chamomille

And for dinner I make this super simple and tasty sandwich.

  1. I toast the bread on one side and spread a bit of mayonnaise. Then I add lettuce, tuna and low-fat ham.

So that’s what I eat in a day. I hope you try the chicken recipe because it’s delicious.

Have a great Friday. I will come back with another post very soon!
