Didn't I say I was cutting meat OUT of my diet? Yes, I did. And no, I didn't give in so quickly. I actually made this meal several weeks ago and just realized that I never actually shared with you!
I can see how this may seem hypocritical- sharing meat-based recipes for the rest of the world to try for themselves, while I am now limiting the amount of meat in my diet- but I AM a supporter of everything in moderation. And I am also a supporter of everyone choosing to eat what he or she feels is right for them. So, that being said, if you enjoy a big plate of chicken for dinner, go for it. And try this easy-peasy crock pot chicken recipe while you're at it.
And throw bunches of steamed broccoli on the side for added color.
