Came up with another healthy dish for me and my sweetheart. There are so many recipes with chicken that I think this on is for sure a keeper. Chicken with whole grain pastas are excellent sources of niacin,a water soluble B vitamin that's linked to nervous system and digestive health. I've been reading up of good foods since my surgery last week and finding that the meals I have been making are very tasty and healthy for me also.
