I’ve been trying my best to prepare and eat healthy dinners ahead of time so that I can stay on track with my goals. This Creamy Tuscan Garlic Chicken Lean & Green recipe was shared with me by my friend Kirtley and it is so dang good! This meal works for a lean and green meal if you are doing the Medifast or Optavia program.

My favorite discovery about this meal was finding the sun dried tomatoes in a bag. You can work with what you need and seal up the rest to keep them fresh and ready for your next recipe.
This recipe is so light and fresh, I love how all of the flavors blend together and it made me feel so good after eating it. I am definitely going to be making this recipe again and again.
