Looking for a healthy and easy recipe for dinner tonight? Here is a chicken and veggies in garlic butter sauce that I made yesterday and it was well received by my picky boys. To make it more healthy I suggest using alterations such as margarine for the butter and plain yogurt for the mayo. You could use no carb pasta and extra veggies too! It is packed with lean protein and healthy spinach that make it a good choice for dinner. If your family is not a fan of spinach, substitute with green beans or other dark green veggie. Great served with a side of couscous or baked potato.
