Italian chicken is a kid favorite that's sure to please - it's quick to make and makes for a healthy dinner too! I like to hide pureed vegetables in my spaghetti sauce!

I premake large batches of healthy spaghetti sauce and keep it in the freezer - it makes it as easy to use as opening a jar and no preservatives!
