Mediterranean Veggie Dish Brings Back Summer Garden

Super Moist Chicken and The Veggies Cooked in the Herb Filled Diced Tomatoes Brought Back The Summer Garden

It has been a busy autumn getting the greenhouse in tip-top shape for year-round growing, putting the gardens to rest by dressing it to prepare  for winter and finding the time to enjoying one of my favorite seasons when some of richest colors taking over the landscape.  This maybe one of the busiest seasons if you grow year-round.  When I came in contact with Hunts Signature Recipes I can’t tell you how excited I was about their simple creations that are easy to prepare and yet promise a meal that is just as good as the ones we enjoy when the garden is being harvested.

Today I’m sharing the chicken with Mediterranean vegetables dish you will find on the  Hunt’s Signature Recipe Collection Website.  This entree  not only was easy to prepare it was the perfect family meal to prepare on a Monday night just before #gardenchat Twitter chat forum event when I have minimal time to figure out a healthy meal for my family.  This was one of the first evening meals since summer that brought my teenage son running downstairs to ask when dinner would be served because it smells so good!  The herbs in the  Hunt’s® Diced Tomatoes with Rosemary & Oregano filled the kitchen with memories from the summer herb garden.  My calorie conscious teenage daughter actually came back to the skillet for a few more slices of the chicken when I shared that 1 serving is only 240 calories.
