Slow Cooker Greek Lemon Chicken

Happy Hump Day! Anyone else waiting impatiently for the weekend? After my vacation last week I definitely need to detox and get back on track so I decided to make one of my healthy favorites for dinner tonight! Greek Lemon Chicken. I'm obsessed with Orzo lately, and what goes great with orzo? Yep, Greek Chicken! Combine the two and you've got a fresh and flavorful meal that is healthy and easy! My kind of weeknight dinner!

Spicy Italian Sausage and White Bean Skillet

I know it's been forever (literally) since I've posted a recipe. Has it really been since July? Summer has come and gone and now in my neck of the woods it is flat out COLD! With these chilly temps we've been having I decided I needed a hearty yet healthy, meal to warm us up and this Spicy Italian Sausage and White Bean Skillet was the perfect dinner. I used turkey sausage to keep the calories down so it is healthy and weight watcher friendly. A win/win in my book!

Spicy Italian Sausage and White Bean Skillet
Serves 4

16 oz. hot Italian Turkey Sausage
1 bag fresh baby spinach
2 cans cannellini beans, rinsed
1 can petite tomatoes, drained
1 tbsp minced garlic
salt and pepper to taste

Remove the casing from the sausage and add the sausage to a large deep skillet, and Sauté the sausage over medium heat, breaking it into pieces as you go, until the sausage is cooked through, brown, and crispy on the edges (about 10 minutes).

While the sausage is cooking, rinse and drain the cannellini beans. Once the sausage is browned add the beans, garlic, and spinach, stirring until wilted. Next add in the diced tomatoes and salt/pepper. Simmer until heated through. Top with fresh grated parmesan if desired. Enjoy!
