Chicken Teriyaki

Tomorrow is my weigh-in day and I think it may be a good weigh-in if my scale doesn't decide to jump the other way. Mrs. Scale, please be nice to me tomorrow. For the past few days I have been adding the cappuccino calorie burn drinks twice a day and an infuser once a day. They seem to be working well. I highly recommend them if you haven't tried them. I admit the first day I tried them, I was jittery but after the first day I didn't have the jitters at all. I did have a lot of energy. I started off with the two shakes for two weeks and then added an infuser recently so I could see how my body would react to them. I love them! 

I had my final call from hubby this morning until he gets to the states. He packs today and he leaves tomorrow. Not sure when tomorrow since nothing is ever set in stone in the Army and anything can change, but he should be somewhere in the states either Thursday or Friday. It is hard to believe the time has come when we can see each other again. He has only been gone since July and I already feel it has been a lifetime. I really do miss him and I can't help thinking he will have to go  back again after two weeks of being together. He won't be home from deployment until June of next year. They already have their orders to return to Afghanistan Summer of 2013. That's the Army life for you. Anyways, we should have a fun time when he gets here! Yay! I can't wait!

Marinating chicken in soy sauce is one of my favorite ways to eat grilled chicken. The soy sauce helps tenderize the meat and makes it moist. Why this is called Chicken Teriyaki I do not know, but I do know it was gooooooood. I usually marinate it overnight to make sure the soy sauce and spices penetrate deeply into the chicken. This time around I used chicken tenderloins because they are easier to measure frozen. I usually use three of these babies which equals the 6 oz needed for my lean. Sometimes I use four if they look kind of small. Whenever I use the regular size chicken breasts, I find myself always having to cut them to reach my 6 oz. I threw these on the George Foreman Grill, roasted some green beans in the oven and dinner was served! This would also be nice with riced cauliflower. Quick and easy!
