Creamy Tuscan Chicken

This is a dish that can be served by itself or over spaghetti noodles. It uses sun dried tomatoes and herbs, garlic powder and Italian seasonings to create incredible flavor. The recipe requires you to cook the chicken and remove it from the pan. Then, combine the remaining ingredients in a pan to make the sauce. It’s made with coconut milk which means you don’t have to skimp on creaminess. Let it thicken and reintroduce the chicken back into the pan to heat through. Add spinach and enjoy!

Hummus Quesadillas

It turns out you don’t need cheese in a quesadilla in order for it to be delicious. Shocking, right? This particular recipe calls for whole grain tortillas, hummus and whatever fillings strike your fancy. She recommends folding the tortillas in half instead of sticking ingredients between two full tortillas. Because there isn’t cheese to hold everything together, the insides have a tendency to fall out. After you’ve selected your fillings, serve your quesadilla with an unexpected dip like pesto or hot sauce. You can find this recipe here.
