Cooking With Caycee - Balsamic Brussels Sprouts And Chicken Quinoa Bowls

Happy Friday, ladies!!! 

After taking a poll on Instagram, it looks like y'all preferred Cooking with Caycee over sharing the recipe in a random post. This made me really happy to see because I love giving you guys a little peek at our real life, while also sharing a good recipe! 

Even though today's recipe is super healthy, it is packed full of flavor and is so delicious! Plus, it saves great to have it leftover, so Todd and I were both able to have a healthy lunch the next day!
