So have we been catching a trend over here? I love any recipe that is quick, nutritious and versatile. It makes its much more practical to cook at home then ordering out. This hits all that.
First off to make this recipe even easier I buy Costco rotisserie chicken; I mean come on its $5 and so good! Simply cook your potatoes and add toppings and your done. Versatile, absolutely. Sometimes this is an as is lunch other times it’s a dinner with a salad or veggie on the side.
I enjoy sharing meals likes this with you. I hope it gives you a fresh new idea but it's also like giving you a blank canvas. When I say versatile that’s two-fold, you can make some meals a snack, lunch or dinner with little tweaks, You can also completely change the flavor profile and make your own creation, and that's really what my hope is. Try something new and find recipes that work for YOU.
