Spinach Stuffed Chicken // Recipe

Spinach Stuffed Chicken
Roasted Broccoli
Mashed Cauliflower

Last night, I tried a new recipe and it turned out great! The recipe I based it on called for chicken breasts. I did a grocery pickup at Kroger yesterday morning and they subbed my chicken breasts for chicken tenderloins. At this point, I am not going inside the store, so I had to work with what I had. While this recipe would probably be better with chicken breasts, it still worked out nicely.

Wing Stop Charcuterie Board

Last night was the Super Bowl, so I decided to host a watch party. Because my guests and I were not particularly interested in the game itself, we called it a “halftime show watch party.” Really though, we were just looking for good food and good company! We had far more snacks than we needed,… Read More Wing Stop Charcuterie Board
