How’s it going, fabulous people?!  So, you may be wondering just what in the heck CEiMB stands for … you may, or may not, have noticed it on my blog roll as of recently.  Allow me to fill you in …

I joined a cooking group (thanks to the gorg MacDuff) called Craving Ellie in My Belly, based around Ellie Krieger‘s recipes found in The Foods You Crave cookbook.

I am thrilled to be a part of the fun group of ladies that adore the great works of such an awesome foodie! 

Each week a new recipe is chosen by one of the members and that featured selection will be posted on each member’s blog on Thursdays.  Feel free to check out the CEiMB blog for more information, or to check out the other bloggers fab dinner posts each and every Thursday.

This week’s recipe selection was chosen by the classy duo, MacDuff and Jonny T, over at Lonely Sidecar …






I have probably broken all the rules and will be banned from the group tomorrow, ‘cuz of course I made a few modifications to the original recipe.  If you want to see the original recipe, click here to visit the Lonely Sidecar’s post. 

Here’s what I whipped together –


(For two)

  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 10 whole wheat crackers, pulsed in a food processor to fine crumbs
  • 1/4 cup Grape Nuts cereal, pulsed lightly in a food processor
  • 1 tbsp. sesame seeds
  • Scant 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1 large egg white
  • Scant 1/2 cup nonfat plain yogurt (I used Chobani)
  • 1/2 tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 tsp. salt


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Coat baking sheet with cooking spray.  Combine cracker crumbs, Grape Nuts, sesame seeds and cayenne in shallow bowl.  In another bowl, combine the remaining ingredients.  Dip the chicken into the yogurt mixture, coating both sides.  Then dip each piece in the cracker mixture, packing the crumbs evenly on the chicken.  Place chicken on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 20 – 25 minutes, or until chicken is cooked throughout.



On the side, we enjoyed kale chips and our typical spinach/veggie salad (no pic of the salad though.)

Our thoughts on this dish … all-in-all, this one’s a winner in our book!  The flavor was excellent.  We really enjoyed the crispiness on the outside from the cracker/cereal coating and the inside was extra juicy.


Rewind to lunch, I will be brief and allow it to tell it’s own story …



Leftover soup with added black beans, carrots, plus cottage cheese with pomegrante seeds. YUM!


Well, I tried to let the picture do the talking, but my fingers just had to get in there!! 😀


I’m off to plop my bum on the couch and watch all the great entertainment on my tube.  It’s marathon TV night, after all …

Ta ta for now!
