Here’s a quick meal that’s easy to make and clean-up is a breeze. This is a spin on a traditional salsa chicken. Basically turning it into a casserole of sorts. This dish is the perfect balanced meal. I like to have a lot of vegetables with meat. What can I say, it’s the dietitian in me. ? Anytime you are able to get a leafy green in, you’re doing your body some good. Not to mention potatoes being beneficial as a good source of potassium. Try this meal this week!
