Spring is coming, or at least I keep telling myself this! At least our snow is gone and a few warmer days and some rain and things should start turning green. This time of year I like to focus on healthy eating and this Parmesan Crusted Chicken with Arugula Salad is a perfect example of enjoying a delicious meal and eating healthy at the same time!Chicken with Arugula Salad

we have a family favorite recipe similar to this, but without the salad. I’ve never tried arugula before, does it taste much different than regular lettuce?

Arugula is a little less sweet than regular lettuce but very tasty. I like to include it in a mix of greens!

Hi Nancy,
I am so glad Spring is here or at least almost here. I have loads of daffodils blooming, roses bushes, lilacs are coming out in buds. Your chicken recipe sound great and tasty and I am a chicken lover. The salad looks so healthy, colorful, and tasty. Our family garden has spinach coming up from last fall planting so delicious fresh greens are ready to eat. I think arugula is a great alternative to regular lettuce – it does have a stronger or tangy taste. It taste great mixing them together. Thanks for sharing on Real Food Fridays. Pinned & tweeted!

I can’t wait for spring, I really thought it would be early but unfortunately we got snow yesterday and it’s snowing today and it’s April!
