I am always drawn to a skillet or a casserole or any kind of one pan, throw it all together comfort meal. Easy and delicious. Even better is when you can throw a bunch of healthy ingredients in a pan and make a super easy healthy meal. Goals! I love this for dinners but it’s a GREAT recipe for meal planning. Makes a bunch and you can heat it up and eat it all week for lunches. So good!

Onions, sweet potatoes, ground chicken (you could really add any protein to this), spinach and cheese. As little cheese or a lot, whatever you prefer. I suggest a lot, but you do you.

So incredibly easy and good!! Check out the recipe below and leave me a comment to tell me what you think!
