I had one of those, “what am I going to cook for dinner nights” the other night. I had pulled a chicken breast out of the freezer but by the time it came to make dinner I still had no idea of what I was going to make. I knew I needed some quick and easy chicken recipe inspiration. So I looked around and I found the tomatoes I had canned last year and I knew I could whip something up with them.

And so I did.

I didn’t need much else and I didn’t want to spend too long waiting to eat. It was a meal that came together in about half an hour. And it was very tasty. One chicken breast ended up feeding us for three meals too which was pretty awesome. I’ll show the other two meals in a later post.

I am not a fan of warm spinach so I had mine without. It was a very tasty meal. It all came together quickly and using items I had in my pantry/freezer. I went from “what am I going to make” to the table in half an hour. I love meals like that!

I used one of my ZayconFresh chicken breasts. I do love the chicken from Zaycon. I’ve raved on it before. I cut the one breast into thin slices and it fed us well this night and then we went on to have it two more nights. I just ordered wild caught shrimp and salmon from them. I have never been disappointed with anything I have purchased.
