I made this last night.  Thursday is our salad night and I was getting so bored of our regular salad so I thought I would try this.  It was so good.  My husband really liked the chicken.  I cooked my chicken in the oven at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes because it was not completely thawed and because I don't like cooking in hot oil because of the spray and mess.  I also used Romaine lettuce because we use to eat the spring mix all the time and I just got tired of it.  It turned out really well and I will make it again.  I was not sure about the orange segments because I am an apple not an orange person but it was good. 
Ali Edwards has already done her December Daily.  Should I start mine too?  I have to come up with a plan.  I missed a few days of taking pictures last year.  December is my favorite time of year because of Christmas. I don't want to miss out on the documentation of it this year.  We are celebrating Canadian Thanksgiving on Monday and I have already got out my Christmas Cd's because I am starting right after Thanksgiving.  It is not too early.  I love Christmas and want to spread it out as much as I can.
