Chicken and a Baby Sub

Since Jude's recent plumping up, he's now out of his newborn clothes and fitting into 3-6 month clothes. Which means that he now fits into the Beatles onesies we've received from our wonderful friends--and also that we have like zero clothes for him. Sorry bug. You like to kick your naked legs in the air anyway. 
Today he wore his yellow submarine one from our sweet, sweet, darling Myra Lindstrom. He looked so cute. Duh. 
p.s. He finally likes his swing. WIN. 

Also, I wanted to share a recipe with you guys that we used last night. Adam and I really love food. GOOD food. And we're also pretty healthy eaters. Except for the weekends. They're freebees.  Anyway, we like to experiment and try new foods and ingredients, and one thing we love to use while cooking is goat cheese. Last night, we made...ahem, I made...a great recipe for chicken breasts with goat cheese and tomatoes. Super easy, super delicious, and actually super good for you. It's one of those recipes that tastes like it took a lot of work. 
Tricks on you, buddy, because it didn't. 
What do you need?

Two 4-ounce chicken breasts
1/2 cup of diced tomatoes (recipe called for canned tomatoes, but I like fresh ones with garlic powder)
2 ounces of goat cheese
2 tablespoons of basil
Salt and pepper to taste

What to do?
Heat an oven-safe skillet until hot. Spray the skillet with cooking spray and immediately add the chicken breasts. Cook until each of the sides are golden brown, about 1-2 mins. per side. 
Remove the skillet from heat and top each breast with tomatoes, followed by the goat cheese. Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake at 350 degrees until the chicken is cooked through and the goat cheese is melted {p.s. it doesn't really melt it just looks melty, if that makes any sense}, about 5-9 minutes. Top with basil. Serve. Eat. Savor. Enjoy life. Blah blah blah. 
It was D-lish. Definitely going to makes this over, and over, and over again. 
As you can tell, I forgot the basil. Still amazing tho.
Adam ate his with whole wheat noodles. I stuck with just the chicken and veggies for a low-carb dish.

Look at us all domesticated. Nah, we just like taking pictures of our food. 
Like food perves.
