Greek Chicken & Rice for the Family Win

Cooking healthy family friendly meals is always my goal and while it sometimes looks like mac and cheese with hot dogs, we try to make several healthy meals each week. I’ve gotten in a rut lately, cooking the same meals every week, but I stretched my cooking muscles and made this amazingly delicious (and healthy!) new recipe...Greek chicken, marinated cucumber salad, cauliflower rice and roasted red pepper hummus...and it was a huge hit..even for the kids’ friends.

Let me know if your family loves this meal as much as we do!
