Canadian Living Recipes

So today things went ok for me. Just finished eating dinner which was realllly yummy, but I havent done any activity today EEK!!
I have been looking through some of my Canadian Living magazines writing down some recipes that sound really yummy. I am excited to go to the store and get things I need. Two of them sound extra yummy so I thought I would share: Peanut Chicken Pitas and Chai Spiced Baked Oatmeal.

Peanut Chicken Pitas
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 tbsp canola oil
¼ tsp salt and pepper
3 tbsp soy sauce
3 tbsp lime juice
2 tsp sugar
1 tsp minced gingerroot
1 tsp sesame oil
1 minced clove garlic
2 ribs celery, diced
2 green onions, diced
1 carrot, grated
½ cup snow peas, blanced and quarted crosswise
4 pita bread halved, or flour tortillas

Brush chicken with oil; sprinkle salt and pepper. Roast on baking sheet in 400F oven until juices run clear when chicken is pierced, 20-25 minutes. Let cool; cut into cubes *make ahead and refrigerate for up to 6 hours
In large bowl, whisk together peanut butter, soy sauce, lime juice, sugar, ginger, sesame oil and garlic until smooth. Stir in chicken, celery, green onions, carrot and snow peas
Divide among pitas

Chai Spiced Baked Oatmeal
1 ½ cups large flake rolled oats
¼ cup packed brown sugar
½ tsp cinnamon
¼ ground ginger and cardamom
¼ tsp salt
pinch ground cloves and pepper
2 cups milk
1 cup toasted almonds
1 cup blueberries

In a bowl, stir together oats, sugar, cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, salt, cloves and pepper; pour in milk and 1 ½ cups water, blending well. Scrape into greased 8inch square glass baking dish
Bake in 350F oven, stirring once, until liquid is absorbed and oats are softened, about 50 minutes. Serve with almonds and blueberries to sprinkle over top.
*make ahead: let cool. Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 3 days. Serve warm

Makes 4-6 servings

So the points aren't the lowest, but may work for people like me who have a lot each day (31) or if you want to use some flex. There are also ways that you can alter these recipes to make them even healtier (use WW wraps instead of pita for example)
