Spin, Sauteed Chicken, and Greek Style Green Beans

That’s what my night consisted of.

Tonight was my second to last class subbing for Ed’s Wednesday night spin.  Lots of familiar faces tonight:  Tim, Katrina, Stanton, and Jen!  Next week will be the last Wednesday (for now anyways) – I’m gonna miss doing it.

I was super sweaty tonight.  Sometimes I measure the intensity of my workouts based on how much sports bra sweat I have afterward.  Even though that doesn’t really have much to do with it.  Tonight my entire sports bra was soaked.  TMI?  Oh well.

Dinner tonight was sauteed chicken with orange bell pepper and onions, and Greek style green beans (fasolakia!)

Chicken Dish

Ingredients

  • Stir-Fry Chicken
  • Orange Bell Pepper
  • Chopped Onion
  • Italian Seasoning
  • Basil
  • Parsley
  • Garlic Powder

Directions

  • I don’t have specific directions for you or specific amounts!  Just eyeball it and saute all together :)

Greek Style Green Beans (Fasolakia)

Ingredients – for 4 servings

  • Olive oil
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 clove minced garlic
  • 1 pound fresh green beans, rinsed and trimmed
  • 1.5 diced tomatoes (I cheated and used diced tomatoes from a can!)
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • salt to taste

Directions

  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.  Cook and stir the onions and garlic in the skillet until tender.
  • Mix the green beans, tomatoes, sugar, and salt into the skillet.  Reduce heat to low, and continue cooking 45 minutes, or until beans are soft.  (I cooked them for 30 minutes tonight – the time can vary!)

I’ve never had the two different dishes together before, but it was pretty good combined.  I ended up eating it all together even though I started out with two separate sections on my plate:

Best part is the leftovers I have for tomorrow / Friday!
