Whats for Dinner ~ Tuscan Chicken

I guess you can call it Tuscan Chicken... It really was a one pot, what do I have in the house dinner. I didn't take a picture, because- well my camera is dead.. I will try to get better at taking pictures for this blog :)

2 chicken breast
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon oregano
2 teaspoons basil
salt and pepper to taste
1 can white beans, drained and rinsed
1 can diced tomatoes
2 cloves garlic minced
1 medium onion diced
3 cups spinach
2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese

Evenly coat the chicken breast on both side with Italian seasoning, oregano, basil and salt & pepper. In a large saute pan over medium heat, brown the chicken breast on one side. When you flip the chicken breast to the second side add the onions. Cook for 5 minutes then add the garlic and cook for 2 more minutes. Add the beans and give a good stir, let cook for 2 minutes. add the tomatoes and cook for 5-10 minutes. (basically you want to make sure your chicken is done). Remove the chicken breast from the pan, stir the spinach into the tomato bean mixture until just wilted. Pour spinach, bean, tomato mixture over chicken breast and serve with a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese.

**note** ~ I used the diced tomatoes that had garlic and basil included. I also added extra seasoning to the beans and tomatoes to make it extra flavorful.

I actually screamed and danced for joy yesterday when I discovered that Blue Moon Pizza offers gluten free pizza, salads, apps and desserts! Of course the moment I found this out I had to try it. Review~ It was awesome. We went for Trivia to the Smyrna location. We started the night with cheesy bread (OMG! SO GOOD). I got the initial "lets test this crust out" pizza, by ordering a Margarita pizza (just cheese, tomatoes and basil). It was yummy. My husband ordered the super spicy Luna Pizza... which was good- but hot. I can't wait to go back, but since I'm trying to drop a few pounds I think I will have to wait till next month before my return visit. PLEASE CHECK THEM OUT!!! Next visit I think I will share a pizza and try out one of their salads and save room for the gluten free brownie and ice cream!
