Chicken with Mango Salsa

If you ask my mother-in-law what I like to eat for dinner, she’ll tell you chicken is not always my favorite protein. I used to be a liiiiiitle picky and there were a few times I would (hopefully, subtly and politely) opt out of the chicken for a PB & J sandwich. She still makes fun of me till this day, and rightfully so.

This recipe is an easy way to add flavor to chicken [not that my my mother-in-law’s chicken wasn’t flavorful 😉 ] In this recipe you’ll find a sweet and spicy mango salsa paired with juicy chicken! Clean up your drool and start cooking!

Sweet Potato & Brussel Sprout Hash

Oh veggies…you are so hard to get enough of.

Since it’s hard to get the veggies our bodies need, I try to make a big pan full of veggies once a week. One of my recent favorites is a Sweet Potato & Brussel Sprout Hash. I never really cooked with brussel sprouts before but they are great when paired with something sweet like the lovely sweet potato. The sugary flavor, soft texture of the sweet potatoes balance the earthy, crunchy flavor of the brussel sprouts. I’m so in love that I make this once a week!

I hope you’ll love it, too!
