Over the past few months, Skinnytaste has quickly become my go-to site for delicious and healthy recipes (especially after the holiday season). One of those meals that I have made several times is Pollo in Potacchio, which is chicken in a rosemary, garlic, and tomato sauce served over pasta. It is a yummy meal perfect for these colder winter nights! One of the best parts about this meal is that it is great as leftovers for lunch or dinner the next day.
