Do you love having options of simple and easy meals to make for dinner? There are days that I don’t have time or don’t feel like making a complex dinner. Do you have those types of days? I totally do. Especially after a long day. I have a great healthy chicken sandwich idea for you.

I created the marinade for the chicken with what I had in my fridge/pantry. I put ingredients together that I thought sounded good together. The flavor of the chicken turned out great. I melted mozzarella on top of the chicken and added spinach and a slice of tomato to the sandwich. For a side with the chicken sandwiches, add fruit such as pineapple, strawberries, and raspberries.

Here is my recipe for raspberry Italian chicken sandwiches.
