Tonight we had a quick and easy dinner because I wanted to use up some of the odds and ends I had leftover in the fridge from cooking this past week. I had a couple of leftover grilled boneless chicken breasts that I had cooked on Saturday for my son (since he has an aversion to eggplant and we were having Eggplant Ricotta Bake for dinner...I just tossed some chicken breasts on the grill for him and made him some veggies and brown rice to go with it and everyone was happy). I also had some leftover fresh baby spinach that needed to be used from when I made my Greek Style Spinach-Feta Pie last week. I lightly sauteed the spinach in a little olive oil with some salt and pepper and placed the chicken breast on top of a bed of wilted baby spinach. I served it alongside some Yellow Cheddar Squash Casserole left from last night's dinner...and BOOM...dinner was ready in about 10 minutes. I frequently cook extra servings at dinner time so I have enough left for a couple of lunches...or to make a quick dinner like the one we had tonight. I snapped a quick picture of our dinner this evening so you can see how easy it is to use leftover odds and ends to create a simple, quick and easy meal. Enjoy!
These are the ramblings of a self-described wheat, grain and gluten-free “gourmet girl” that loves to cook and eat good food. I love creating and sharing recipes and photographing “beautiful food”. In July 2012, I eliminated wheat, grains and added sugar from my diet and rediscovered real, whole fresh foods again and effortlessly lost 65+ pounds. Join me in my wheat, grain and gluten-free journey. See how easy it is to enjoy grain free gourmet, one meal at a time! Welcome to my blog. Enjoy!
