Smothered chicken

Healthy & full of flavor!

This dish is packed with grilled chicken and simple sauteed vegetables. It's perfect for a quick weeknight dinner.

Chicken is always a great go-to meal,  because it's quick and can be cooked in so many delicious ways. This recipe takes simple grilled chicken and covers it with simple sauteed vegetables with just a little cheese.

We went light on the cheese to keep the calorie count low. However, just because the calorie count is low, don't think the flavor is anything but big!

Our local restaurant makes this. Which in turn I now make at home the only difference is using honey mustard instead of Dijon.

How yummy and easy does this look? I hate spending a ton of time in the kitchen especially in the summer. This looks healthy, yummy and most importantly easy! I think I know what I am making for dinner tonight :)

Awesome recipe! I love chicken and I have specifically been looking for dishes to make with boneless chicken breast. I also love this dinner because it incorporates three of my favorite cooking foods – onions, garlic and cheese! Best of all it serves 4 people, which is the size of my family!
