It was one of those days where dinner consisted of whatever I could find in the refrigerator, and in this case, it was perfection! I started rifling through the fridge at dinner time, and saw that I had a whole bunch of green vegetables!
I wasn’t sure how they would all go together, but I knew that all those green veggies were going to supply me with all sorts of health benefits and nutrients.
So, I decided to cook some of them, leave some of them raw, chop up some chicken that I had previously cooked in the pressure cooker, and see what the result was! You can thank me later, because though this is simple, it is absolutely delicious!!!
