6 Reasons Why You're NOT Losing Weight to start living healthier today!

Nothing makes me more excited than a good crockpot dump recipe!

Life is much easier when you can add a handful of ingredients to your slow-cooker, set it, and leave the house knowing dinner will be ready once you return!

And that smell when you do finally leave the office and come home- well that’s an added bonus.

For the longest time, I’ve been stuck in the same routine of some rendition of salsa verde chicken, but after venturing into the International Food aisle at my local grocery store I was inspired to create an Asian-styled dish that would liven up the dinner experience at my house once and for all.

I gotta tell you- I am so pleased with how this whole thing turned out!

The sauce is just enough of both sweet and tangy to please even the pickiest of eaters. Plus, the dish pairs well with a side of white rice and steamed broccoli- giving it a feel of Chinese take-out (just a little more macro-friendly!).

It’s honestly hard to believe that such a flavorful dish packs over 27 grams of protein per serving with just 6 grams of fat!
