Normally hamburger helper made with ground beef, but tonight I made it with ground Chicken since my husband cannot eat red meat.

I try as much as I can to stay away from ready made packaged food, they are full of sodium and preservatives.

I like cooking from scratch so I made up this recipe for tonight’s dinner for my husband. It turned out delicious and healthier version.
