I can practically feel each perfectly-roasted, lightly sweet tomato burst in my mouth as I munch my way from under the PILE of bright and fresh, zesty zucchini noodles.
Zesty zucchini noodles that are topped with CREAMIEST, herb-packed Greek yogurt chicken that my mouth has ever tasted.
It’s my idea of easy-peasy weeknight-friendly dinner food heaven. And I want to eat it all the time.
And I have been. Because it’s one of those meals that you eat, put the leftovers away for your husbands lunch, and then just kind of keep going back for little nibbles here and there. Which then end ups up in asking him if cereal is lunch-appropriate because you sort of got carried away with fresh-and-healthy-tomato-chicken YUM.
Which is, like, really surprising considering the addictive food in question is CHICKEN. Like, protein-packed, super full of health and good-for-you-fresh veggies kinda chicken.
If you’re like me and, since we’re SUPA BESTIES and stuff, you ARE, you’re usually the person who goes for the extra nibbles and secret-oh-my-gosh-is-that-chocolate-on-my-forehead-now-everyone-is-going-to-know-I-ate-an-extra-2 bites of cookie dough cheesecake or cake batter cookies.
I know you do it. Don’t lie.
BUT CHICKEN that lures you to fridge for that teensy little taste test? GAME CHANGER, my easy-meal loving friends.
I can’t lie to you. I am typically not one for cherry tomatoes. There’s just something about them. They bug me. I didn’t think it was possibly for food to be annoying, but cherry tomatoes have proved my brain wrong.
Until I tried roasting them when I made healthy mac and cheese, and decided that they were my mouth’s new BFF. The squishy bursts of fresh-vegetal goodness grew my once-cherry-tomato-judging-Grinch heart TWO SIZES that day.
Too soon? I’ll save it for November.
A-NE-Wayz, I then decided that I wanted to put them on ALL the things and in ALL the things. PLUS PLUS PLUS the combo of the fresh and sun-dried tomatoes is preeeety much the ULTIMATE in all things delicious and yum.
Especially when there’s sprinkles of herb-a-licious Italian seasoning, ribbons of freshly sliced basil, a squeeze of SUPAH fresh, bright lemon, and ALL the melty-ooey-gooey Parmesan cheese on top. ß DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP.
But, we’re besties remember? I know you wouldn’t let your inner-cheese-covered-winner-of-a-chicken-dinner-loving-self down like that.
Heck, I might even suggest you sprinkle on a little EXTRA cheese.
And if you’re reading between the imaginary, internet-land lines, well…
That’s not really a suggestion.
You feel me.
