Good-for-you Spicy Chicken

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Hey Jude

I found this one in the Daily Herald and was happy to find a recipe where I didn't have to reduce the sodium myself, it's already done here. It's still tasty, you won't miss the sodium! This is great over rotini pasta with a salad on the side.

An enjoyable dinner. I split the recipe and made it to serve 2. Therefore, I was left with the instructions calling for 1/2 can of tomatoes and 4 oz of tomato sauce. I used the full can of tomatoes and left off the sauce. Served it over whole wheat rotini. It has a nice flavor and a subtle kick. Just goes to show you that healthy doesn't have to be dull. Thanks Jude.
