Chicken with Creamy Parmesan and Sun Dried Tomatoes

December 30, 2014

This is the easy way to have a quick and flavor filled dinner.  And fancy enough for guests too.  This is a perfect example of putting your dinner on a bed of spinach, which I do many, many nights. One less pot and wilted perfectly.
