Parmesan Chicken with Garlic Kale and Spinach


Things are a bit hectic this week. My daughter left for camp yesterday. I took her up and dropped her off. It was a bit bitter-sweet as I realized that this would probably be her last summer at this camp (even thought she could attend one more season after her senior year) but I know she is going to be busy getting ready for the next phase of her life. The lasts are slowly starting but I know there is so much good ahead for her.

I also have a big birthday coming up on Monday. To celebrate I have invited my college friends, local friends and dance moms to dinner. We will have company for about a week. I have been planning for this all week. The first people arrive on Friday. So, blog posts may be sporadic for about a week. But, first I have to tell you about this wonderful meal.

Verdict:

When your son says he wanted more kale and spinach you know you have a good meal. The flavors were so good. Of course we love garlic and this has quite a bit of it! It was good even heated up the next day for lunch.

Serve this with a nice green salad and a vegetable for a delicious meal!

  2. Nice dish, Marci. It is definitely sad when our kids move from one stage to the next but there are good things ahead for them.
