Jalapeno Popper Chicken

If you didn’t love those breaded delicious gifts from the gods, then we can’t be friends.

Seriously though, jalapeño poppers are a childhood favorite of mine.  Who says I can’t reminisce while staying healthy?  30 days until Christmas …

It has been a while since I shared one of my last dinner recipes with you, such as our Zucchini Lasagna.  I’m working on a backlog right now to bring you fresh inspiration.  🙂
