Garlicky Breaded Chicken Breast recipe

I found this recipe on AllRecipes and altered it slightly.

    2 chicken breast halves
    2 tablespoons Organic Pastures Raw Butter
    3 cloves crushed organic garlic
    2/3 cup Organic Panko Breadcrumbs

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
    In a cast iron saucepan, melt butter with garlic. Dip both sides of chicken pieces in butter/garlic sauce, letting extra drip off, then lay in plate of breadcrumbs and coat both sides completely.
    Place coated chicken in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking dish. Combine any leftover butter/garlic sauce with bread crumbs and spoon mixture over chicken pieces.

Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
This served 2.

Apple/Kiwi/Mint Juice recipe

I'm trying to add more fresh mint to my foods, since I know I will have a LOT of it in the future, once I transplant this potted mint into one of my 18-gallon bins. So, I came up with this juicy treat!

3 organic Fuji apples, halved
2 organic kiwifruits
2 4-inch sprigs of fresh spearmint

Add ingredients to juicer opening (alternating apple, kiwi, apple, mint, apple, kiwi, etc. to make sure mint leaves get juiced properly.) This made about 12 ounces of minty-fresh juice!
