Chicken Pomodoro with Garlic Spaghetti

Chicken Pomodoro with Garlic Spaghetti. The perfect weeknight meal by Muy DelishP I N_______I M A G E

We all know that weeknight dinners are always a struggle since most of us have busy lives. I feel confident to say that the majority of people  are stuck in a rut and always end up cooking the same ol’ things. Right? Now that I’ve been blogging for a few years, I can’t imagine not experimenting with new dishes and making a delicious weeknight dinner here and there. I feel it’s my duty to share with you this delicious, healthy & quick dinner you can make any time of year. So get in the kitchen and try this new dish!!

This crowd pleaser meal should take about 30 minutes to prepare unless you’re very slow with the knife 😉 . But I promise it won’t take more than 45 minutes to make. What took me the longest was mincing the garlic for the Garlic spaghetti. I think fresh garlic (instead of the jarred stuff) is best in a dish like this since it’s one of the main flavors.

For someone that likes kitchen gadgets I can’t believe I still don’t own a garlic press!! I think this calls for a shopping day:)

    Shots, Growth Charts, and Chicken – Love Grows Well in Little Houses - […] Baby K had her 2 month appointment this morning so we got to know her weight, height, head circumference, overall health, and she got 6 shots! Poor girl is drugged on Tylenol now and sleeping peacefully. She did pretty well so far, just a little fussy. Lots of snuggling and Food Network today :) she is growing well; Brendan says I must be giving her whole milk, not skim haha. At least the doctor appointment forced me to actually get dressed. I do feel better when I get out of pajamas, even if I’m not planning to go anywhere. Luckily, I have been back in my old clothes since a couple days after she was born so I have options. I’m still figuring out how to best dress for nursing when out. So much easier to just wear a t-shirt at home :) Made a chicken pomodoro recipe last night that we really enjoy. It’s super simple but very tasty and leaves enough leftovers for lunch for both of us the next day. Here is the recipe. […]ReplyCancel
