Recipe

I have always been a huge fan of one pan meals, anything to avoid washing hundreds of dishes at the end of a meal.  Paired with the fact that this also comes together in under 30 minutes - it's the perfect meal for a busy weeknight.  The chicken, spinach, mushrooms, and tomatoes come together for a warm and comforting dish without the extra calories.  I like to serve it over a bed of polenta, quinoa, couscous, or spaghetti squash.
