New Year Cooking – Spice it up!

It happens every (new) year…resolutions. Besides flossing, I always seem to vow to myself that I will:

  1.  Eat healthy.
  2. Cook more.
  3. Save money.

Well, good news everybody! This recipe hits 3 of my most common New Year’s resolutions and I am excited to share it with you. It is healthy, quick and seriously delicious. If you are looking to spice up some boring chicken breasts and turn them into an easy weeknight meal while not adding some unwanted lbs, look no further…this is it!

Tips –

  • To save even more time, disposable baking dishes are totally acceptable!
  • I love to serve this over black beans as a money saving (and healthy) side.  
  • Top with reduced fat sour cream for some added yumminess.
