What I love most about this recipe, is it’s kid APPROVED. Since we have been stuck in the house with self- quarantine, they both have become extra picky with what I make. Lately, they have curled their noses up to a lot of the recipes I have made, but they said this meal was a keeper. Additionally, this recipe it is healthy and I am able to sneak veggies in a tasty way. It’s a win-win.

  • Do you think I could use frozen spinach?

    • I think you could. You may want to have it thawed before using. It could get watery.

  • I initially planned to make this just to use up some sun-dried tomatoes, but I’ll definitely make it again! It was a hit both with my husband and I and our two toddlers. I was able to whip it up FAST and it was delicious! I think searing the chicken before baking made a big difference; never done that before but I’ll use that technique again.
