After all the craziness from last week: rushing bean to the doctor (instead of the ER) with 105 fever, a diagnosis of pneumonia, a rash that could have been an allergic reaction to the antibiotic or rosiolla (I guess medicine isn’t an exact science), it is safe to say Mr. Man, Bean and I are all in one piece. If not one piece, we are in a better place then last week. We finally have our cheerful, witty, playful toddler with a VERY strong personality. While I didn’t miss her “attitude” (I am in trouble!!! She isn’t even 2.) she is back:
Since my little lady is in full force, keeping me on my toes I decided to make a family favorite. This easy weeknight meal has been adopted as a regular in my in-laws as well as sister-in-law’s house. My sister-in-law has even coaxed her husband, Mr. Man’s brother, home from work to promise to have this on the table when he got home. It is one from Catherine McCord of weelicious her Moroccan Chicken.
The thing I like best about this recipe is that the ingredients are staples in my kitchen. So, when I do my weekly shopping I just make sure I replace the tomatoes and garbanzo beans when I make the dish so I know have them on hand for next time. The only ingredient you do have to obviously plan on is the chicken. One thing I do want to note, for some reason I never see chopped tomatoes in my local grocery store so I use diced tomatoes instead.
By the way…….this is Bean’s FAVORITE meal.
Don’t believe me: just ask her Francia.
