Chicken is a healthy, versatile way to add protein to any meal, which is why I always keep some in my refrigerator. But half the time, when dinner rolls around, I look at all those packs of chicken… and have no idea what to do with them!

Grilled chicken is good, but it can get dry if it’s marinated. And plain pan-fried or baked chicken is just boring!

Luckily, I’ve found a solution. On those nights when you have nothing prepared and don’t have the creativity or energy to spend whipping up a meal, Spinach Stuffed Chicken or Creamy Tuscan Chicken are both wonderful options!
