Maple Lime Chicken

Super easy meals are awesome.  Especially this one…it’s THREE ingredients, people.  Well, four if you count salt.  But some people don’t salt their food nearly as much as I do…and “three ingredients” just has a nice ring to it.  So much less intimidating.  Especially on a Tuesday night when you get home late from school and the gym and still have calc homework and you’re just beat.  Seriously…I prepped these while I was in the shower and baked them while I finished homework/watched Arrested Development.

I know like, everyone has already finished the new season…please don’t spoil it for me.  We only got the Roku working a few days ago so I’m SO far behind.  Pathetic, just pathetic.  Know what else is pathetic?  Realizing my undergraduate education…AND my master’s degree are worthless.  Utterly.  I’ve been sitting in math class for the last 2 weeks with the dumbest looks on my face.  Seriously, no clue what’s going on.  I guess that’s what happens when you’re an Art, Philosophy, and Literature major and decide to be a doctor.  Totally makes sense, right?  …Right…?
