Spinach Almond Chicken {Giveaway}

So, our new favorite thing is to drive down to our local farmers market on Saturday mornings and grab some goodies. We mainly pick up meat and bread, but lately there’s fresh pasta!

We picked up some roasted red pepper pasta and I couldn’t have chosen a better dish to pair it with!

This ‘twist on a classic’ dish came out beautifully and it looked like it took hours…yet it only took minutes! Not only was it very easy to put together, I even got my husband involved. He was the chopper, chopping the spinach AND the almonds. 😀

The green, cheesy crust on the outside of the chicken made for quite a moist chicken on the inside. I must say, these chicken recipes from Hellmann’s sure are fantastic!

In addition to heading down the post to grab the awesome recipe, head over to Hellmann’s facebook page to enter their daily giveaways of $50 and the $5000 grand prize!
