One Pot Wonder: Creamy Italian Sweet Pea Chicken

*recipe adapted from boss sanders



monday monday.

monday is always my day to get back on track. this usually involves a good sweat, a healthy meal & a bed time of 9:30pm. it's my day to re-charge & re-boot the system. if i'm feeling extra organized, i throw something in the crock pot for an even simpler dinner plan. this creamy italian chicken has been making the photo rounds on pinterest so i decided to give it a try. i made a few adjustments to the recipe, added a veggie & it was a big hit around our house.

enjoy...it's almost tuesday!
