Healthy doesn’t have to be boring! This chicken and quinoa is drizzled with
a pesto ranch dressing to make this a light and tasty, yet satisfying meal!
Like any human, I LOVE vacation! Yes, I love the fun, family time, but I also love the fact that vacation means I DON’T HAVE TO COOK!. I love cooking and being in the kitchen, but as a stay at home mom, I’m in the kitchen a lot! I always get a little dizzy with the excitement at the prospect of not having to plan meals, do dishes or cook up one single thing. For a week, I get to be served.
The problem is, by the end of the week I am so tired of buffets, fried food, soft drinks, burgers and chips! I feel stuffed, greasy and well done. I can’t wait to get home and fill my body with fresh fruits and vegetables. I long for meals made with my own hands in my own kitchen with ingredients I gathered myself!
After a week of cookie cutter restaurants, I found myself craving quinoa. I just started throwing things in with my quinoa and came up with this! There are so many flavors in this meal between the seasoned chicken, the cherry tomatoes, the feta and the marinated artichokes. The pesto ranch dressing drizzled over the entire dish was like icing on the cake! It was delicious, healthy and satisfying!
After eating this, I felt good again. I felt lighter and healthier and happy to be in my own kitchen! However, then I had dishes to do and a kitchen mess to clean. I see pizza in our very near future!
