      Let’s take a look at the main ingredients:

      • Chicken
      • Garlic 
      • Sun-dried tomatoes
      • Spinach
      • Heavy cream 
      • Parmesan cheese

      Garlic, sun-dried tomatoes, and spinach are all natural, nutritious food sources. Each have their own list of health benefits. Combine them together, and you’ve got a bright, flavorful, and healthy meal. 

      But what about heavy cream? What about Parmesan cheese? Is dairy healthy?

      Here’s what we know. Dairy is full of vitamins, minerals, protein, and natural fat energy. But if everyone consumed dairy all of the time, dairy farming would become abusive and unsustainable…

      Let’s be mindful of our dairy intake. Buy dairy that comes from pasture raised cows and try to eat less. 

      But what about the chicken skin? Isn’t it fatty and unhealthy?

      Neutral Eating has a practical stance on chicken skin:

      If you’re going to eat meat, make full use of the animal. Eating the whole animal is sustainable, nutritious, and humane.

      Chicken skin is full of vitamins, minerals, protein and natural fat energy. And the stuff is delicious. Doing right by the animal means you get to eat it all. Enjoy the skin! Learn more about the Neutral Eating Food Philosophy here.

      Marry Me Chicken Tips

      1. Bulk it up

      Serve this dish over a bed of zucchini noodles, cauliflower rice, or low-carb pasta to make it even more filling and help soak up the sauce. 

      2. Grate the cheese

      For the best results, use a block of Parmesan, and grate it yourself. It will have a bolder flavor and melt easier, creating the gooey consistency we want. Also, pasture-raised cheeses always taste better. 

      3. Avoid light cream

      Not only is light cream often made with unnecessary chemicals and additives, but it also dilutes the flavor and creates a thin, runny sauce. Go for pasture-raised heavy cream. 

      4. Store leftovers

      Feel free to make a double batch, and store leftovers for easy meals throughout the week! Once cooled, they can be transferred to an airtight container and stored in the fridge for up 3 days. To reheat, warm them in the microwave or oven, and add a splash of water to thin out the broth.
