PIN IT FOR LATER

In case you’re wondering, yes I’m still in love with all things 30-minutes-saucy-chicken. 

Hey Hey! Happy Sunday, my internet pals! What’s on the agenda?!

I’m finally just waking up from a 10 hour deeeeep sleep. Myrtle Beach was pretty awesome, but as soon as I got back last night, I was literally crying for sleep. Like, a sleep deprived toddler’s tantrum had nothin’ on me. Like, putting on my pj’s was a task I didn’t want to do. Like, it was that bad. I think you understand.

So, now, I’m back from my getaway (⬅click to see all the fun on my Instagram!) with a chicken recipe on this fine Sunday. I hope you’re not shocked. I mean, chicken and 30 minutes on MY blog?! Yeah. No shock. Happens all.the.time. I’m so predictable. And speaking of predictable, how the heck is it March already. WHAT. ??? 

Let’s just not get into the whole how-time-flies-thingamajig, and let me tell you about this chicken alfredo deal. 

It was right in the middle of a hangry ME episode, and once I realized that this chicken alfredo recipe has been done and redone thousands of times, and if you’re on Pinterest, you’ve already DONE IT!?… I went ahead, took a gazillion pictures of it and literally couldn’t wait to share it with those that might not have tried it already. I’m thoughtful like that.

The two of us, the hubby and me, had this entire meal to ourselves and oh my word – it was insane. You know how when you make something over and over again, and it just gets better with each time that you make it? Yeah, this was it. Pretty incredible.

In here, though, you get your greens, your protein, and your calcium all in one. Garlic, too, a bit of lemon squeeze as well, and voila. Quickest dinner. If you want to add a side of pasta, that’s cool, too. I try to keep carbs at a minimum, but you can g’ahead and do what your heart desires.

BUT!!! Without all of that, this meal is just under 300 calories per serving. so yeah… if you keep the pasta out, it’s still pretty amazing stuff. Trust. 

ENJOY!
