A large chicken breast cooked on the George Forman grill with 1 tbsp of wing sauce on each side and a sliced cucumber . It hit the spot and I feel full.

I am herb challenged so I am trying to learn how to use herbs more in my cooking. Tonight I tried an experiment with McCormick Recipe Inspirations Rosemary Roasted Chicken with Potatoes and saluted cabbage. The family enjoyed it so I think it was a success.

Mine was a hit, too! It was soooooo good. Very hearty and filling, and so freaking nutritious (Kale! Carrots! Tomatoes! Fiber-rich beans and veggies!).

A definite replay for future menus...and I get to eat it for lunch tomorrow. Hooray! (we don't have kids to fight over our leftovers).
