Leaves are changing and cooler weather is on it’s way. Yes, it’s beautiful, but to be honest, the best thing about fall is the food! In the summer it’s too warm for hot, filling favorites. But now I can enjoy those comfort foods I’ve been missing all year long.
Speaking of comfort food, the meaning of that term has evolved in recent years. As we learn more about health and the benefit of a healthy diet, foods that comfort are not necessarily heavy meals, but foods that make us feel good. New comfort foods are hearty, but also good for you; foods you feel good about feeding your family, that keep your body healthy. My family now only eats gluten-free meals so I have had to adjust some of my favorite comfort food meals for that very reason! Health is important! But, so is taste. With some experimenting we found some new favorite chicken dinners as well as new ways to make old favorites.
My go to protein for healthy family meals is chicken.
You can do so much with it, so many different flavors and combinations and you really can’t go wrong.

Family Favorite Gluten Free Chicken Dinner
This Recipe is my family’s favorite at the moment. My son just started liking salsa. He’s outgrowing the picky phase he was in for some years and is branching out to try new flavors. This is not spicy, so all the kids will love it, big and small!
