Simple Homemade Orange Chicken

As a mom, anything I can make that is quick, easy and not too unhealthy is a win for me. For when you are craving some orange chicken, this one hits the spot!

You only need 4 simple ingredients:

  • Boneless chicken breast
  • Bbq sauce
  • Orange marmalade
  • Soy sauce

This recipe serves 3-5 people. In one sauce pan, mix 1 cup bbq sauce, 1 cup sweet orange marmalade and 2 tablespoons of soy sauce together and let simmer. 

Then chop chicken breast to desired size and grill. Optional: you can coat with flour and water mixture to have a bit more breaded texture. 

Once all chopped, toss into simmering sauce and let simmer for about 5-10 minutes. 

Once it is done, you can serve as is or with a side of fried rice. 

Let me know if you enjoy this or have another recipe I should try! 😊


Beach Day & Date Night 💜

PART ONE – Beach Day

I love summer! And everything that comes with it. Sun, sand, beach and relaxing while tanning. With kiddos it make the beach more fun but also more challenging. Today was a wonderful day with no problems with the kids. 

My little one, Lexi was loving getting to roam free without boundaries. She’s also a major chunk so she is almost a year old but wearing a size 2 toddler 😂

My lil man, Leo, wandered around until he found people flying a kite and then just stood and watched them. 

Both passed out once I put them in the stroller and went for a walk. It was a great day at the beach. 
PART TWO – Date Night

We don’t get date night too often but when we do it’s usually casual so we can relax. We decided to go to Del Mar in Downtown San Clemente. Decided to scope out for a new place to eat and stopped at a place called “Cotton’s” and it was amazing!

I would post pictures of the food but we ate it too fast 😳 it was delicious. I was able to catch a photo of dessert though. 

A perfect end to a great day! 😊💜 hope all y’all had a good Friday Funday!

Let me know below your great end to the week 😊
