I have this amazing challenger in my current accountability group. She finds and makes the BEST recipes. I seriously start to drool as soon as I see her name in a new notification.
A fellow foodie. A girl after my own heart. Reason #9874 that accountability groups are awesome.
Anyway, she made this lovely one skillet Chicken Caprese found on Delish.com, and I had to share it here. I made a few simple modifications, decreasing the oil and adding red onion, and I served mine over spaghetti squash. but wow was it good.
And I cooked my spaghetti squash in the microwave, so this dinner was quick and easy! Perfect for a weeknight!Print
