Want to know one of my favorite time saving tricks?? When I make my Italian Chicken recipe I double the amount of the chicken and spices, shred, and remove half the chicken for this recipe!
It freezes beautifully… and then the chicken has a bit of those yummy Italian Spices cooked right in! It also makes this recipe SO easy to throw together 🙂
Italian Artichoke Chicken Pasta is sure to be a family favorite of yours– it’s a deliciously healthy recipe too 🙂
Happy Cooking and Happy Tuesday!
