  1. Creole Chicken and Green Beans

    Most comfort food dinners are packed with unhealthy fats, unnecessary calories and obscene levels of simple carbs…and flavor, lots of flavor. With this comforting Creole Chicken and Green Bean Dinner I’ve left the abundance of flavor, while removing the unhealthy fats, unnecessary calories and those pesky simple carbs. Win-win!

    Enjoy this hearty, protein-rich comfort food dinner with a salad of dark leafy greens for the perfect fitness meal.
