ONE-PAN CREAMY CHICKEN AND SPINACH

It’s funny how much your life can change in just 24 hours. Thursday night we had a category 4 hurricane coming right for us. Naturally, I wanted to make our last meal a memorable one and this Creamy Chicken and Spinach was it.

The last time a hurricane was knocking on our door I made these Cheerios Treats. What can I say? When I’m stressed cooking relaxes me.

The next day I woke up to hear that the hurricane had shifted and we weren’t in the cone.

Here’s why you’ll love this chicken dinner. It’s all made in one pan! Creamy Parmesan sauce with sun-dried tomatoes and spinach, this dinner is great over pasta or cauliflower rice.
