This week I started tracking calorie intake, which is part of why I created my Skinny Banana Cookies.

So for dinner last night I wanted something I could easily track calorically. So I made:

•When your rice is done, you can put your chicken on your rice or mix it into the rice.

Enjoy!

Next time I will double the spinach, I LOVE sautéed spinach.

Split for 2 = 440 calories per serving.
