*Don’t forget to comment on this post with a recipe or key ingredient you think I should try next week!*
I was intrigued by all the yummy veggies in Kelly’s recipe, but what sealed the deal for me was the ease of the recipe. You guys know I love easy, peasy dinners!
After work, I swung by the grocery store to pick up the necessary ingredients as well as my weekly essentials.
I arrived home to my sick fiancé and crazy dog. Poor Ryan stayed home from work today because he’s not feeling so hot. This dinner seemed like the perfect dish of comfort food for a sick boy and I figured it was good night to try out this warm and nutritious meal. Let’s hope it helps him get healthy fast!
Dinner came together quickly, and after a few minutes of slicing and dicing, the chicken and veggies were a-roastin’!
My favorite part of this dish was the roasted zucchini. The combination of the veggie with the olive oil and sweetness of the rosemary made it taste phenomenal.
Ryan and I both enjoyed second helpings of this dinner. Ryan said we should make thie recipe again if only for the smell. The rosemary made our whole apartment smell fantastic!
I also enjoyed a small bottle of POM Wonderful pomegranate juice with dinner for some added sweetness.
I’m off to unpack from our weekend in St. Pete before climbing in bed early. I’m tiiiired.
