Balsamic Chicken Fettuccine

January is a time when many people make the decision to eat healthier.  I personally made that decision in October 2017, and I've lost 50lbs!  Now if you are a follower of the blog, you know I'm not eating all healthy 100% of the time, I'm a big believer in enjoying everything in moderation.

It's so much easier to eat things that are good for you if they're pleasing to the eye, and have great textures.  This Balsamic Chicken Fettuccine from the Taste of Home test kitchen is one of those dishes.  I didn't make any changes to the recipe this time, though I will definitely switch to in season fresh tomatoes and broccoli when they are available.

I added the mushrooms, but I'm going to admit that I'm not really the biggest fan. I'll also be upfront that my guys would not touch most of this one with a ten foot pole.  They are avid veggie haters.  The great thing about this is, they'll eat the chicken and the pasta, and I can mix the veggies just into my serving.

Thanks so much to Heather and Christie for hosting this event. Be sure to go and check out the links down below to see the other amazing dishes being shared today!   You can also join the Facebook group to see what we we are sharing from #OurFamilyTable here.

    4. As soon as I saw this, I knew I was going to make it. I went over to ToH to get the nutrition info and find that it has 11 WW Smart Points -- so I may even make this tonight! We are all on WW FreeStyle and this is a lower point, yet hearty meal. Thanks!
