Italian Chicken and Spinach Skillet

I found a great new blog the other day and have already tried out several of the recipes (and bookmarked even more to try soon)!

This Italian Chicken & Spinach Skillet was so flavorful (and easy!)! I have a long standing rule that any recipe that gets my husband to eat spinach goes in the keeper file so we will definitely be having this one again! :)

Just 8 points for a good sized serving!

Kickin' Chicken Nachos

This, my friends, is the awesomeness that results from your husband making dinner:


I think Jake was over chick, diet food and seized the opportunity to make nachos after spotting key ingredients around the kitchen. We had an abundance of grilled chicken after our freezer and fridge died (right after I had stocked up on chicken breasts of course!) that was just begging for a more creative use than simply throwing it over a salad. We tossed some of the chicken in buffalo wing sauce and then used typical nacho toppings like an insane amount of cheese, olives, sour cream, salsa and heaps of guacamole. I usually make my own guacamole but we tried the Wholly Guacamole brand for the first time since I had a coupon...it was SO good! Not quite as good as the homemade stuff, but definitely nice to have on hand in the fridge. I used it on turkey burgers the next night...I'm pretty firmly in the "guacamole goes with everything" camp.

I think I'll let Jake handle dinner more often. :)
