Chicken And Spinach Pie

Tonight I decided to make something new. I was a little iffy about the combination but I gotta tell ya, it turned out the be a winner.
I wanted to make something nice and healthy because Kyle and I went to Memphis this weekend and I was not very good on my food choices! We ate at this fried chicken place called, Gus’s World Famous Fried Chicken. It was so good! I don’t have much to compare it to because I can’t remember the last time I had fried chicken. I never had it growing up unless mom picked up some KFC one night for dinner. The only thing they had on the menu was fried chicken so there was no going healthy at this place. That’s okay, I will make it up with my Shred it by Jillian Michaels workout video this week!
I started by chopping up half of an onion and red bell pepper
Then sauté in olive oil until tender
Mix all ingredients together and pour into your pie pan.
Sprinkle with grated parmesan.
This recipe is so easy to make! The hardest part is waiting for it to cook in the oven!
I paired it with Kale Chips.
