Balsamic Grilled Chicken. It’s What’s For Dinner!

I have too much fun in the kitchen ūüôā Today’s creation was balsamic grilled chicken with spinach,¬†sauteed onion and laughing cow garlic and herb spread. And I made a side of green beans with almonds and cranberries. All topped with the most delicious balsamic glaze you’ll ever taste! In the middle of making my first video (on my about me page), my butt was getting sore from sitting for so long, so I decided to take a break and whip something up in the kitchen. I had just been on a big grocery shopping trip so there was no need to run to the store! Everything only took me about an hour to make, but 5 minutes to eat! It was so delicious that I can’t wait until tomorrow for leftovers!
