Hi everyone!!! After yesterday’s Clean Monday or Ash Monday and a day of fasting, I am back with another Chicken recipe. 🙂 Fasting usually last for about 40 some odds days, which is way to long of time at least for me that is, so what I usually do is fast the last week before Easter. I think most people do that know, busy schedule and fasting a bit difficult. If your in the mood to eat something different give this recipe a try, you just might like it. 🙂
My husband is a fan of Green beans, me not so much, but before I say NO to something I like to try it out first, I have actually tried to eat them a few times in the past, but it was a no go. I gave it one more try again today just in case my tastebuds have changed aaaand NO they have not..:), so I can officially say I am not a fan of Green Beans.
Since, I do love Chicken this recipe has the combination of both worlds, and the taste is just superb (Chicken of course is). 🙂 With the addition of fresh tomatoes and herbs simmering together just makes you want to eat it all at once. Adding a side dish of Feta cheese, drizzled with Olive Oil, topped with fresh Oregano, dipping that fresh slice of bread into the sauce AWWW!! what more can I say. 🙂
