The best dishes come together by chance and I find they are usually pretty simple to make. As matter of fact, some of the best food is simple food. This is one of those types.

It’s one I made after a long day and posted on a story then was messaged for the recipe. I was surprised at the response. Of course I didn’t bother to write it down anything I did to make this dish at the time naturally.

So after going back and testing it out, I have the recipe ready to share with you. It has become a go to meal for me, whether or not I am in a pinch for time.

**Note to self, write them down EVERY TIME. I am getting better at this. To those who asked, I hope it was worth the wait.
