This weekend was so nice. We continued celebrating our engagement with friends, we started the planning process, and even saw a possible venue! It’s really an exciting time and going to be a fun year. I’m excited to share with you details along the way. With all the future planning ahead; wedding, exciting Lexi’s Clean Kitchen endeavors, and so on, I’m officially ready for SPRING! Warm weather is calling my name despite the current not-so-warm weather in Boston.

I’m channeling the warmer days through this chicken dish.  I love the unique sweet flavors! Dairy-free, no refined sugar, and so simple to throw together! I used jasmine rice in this, but feel free to substitute it for cauliflower rice to make this low-carb and paleo-friendly!
