Enter the era of One Pan Chicken Parm with Veggies! I find you can almost always add something like eggplant or spinach to a pre-existing dish thereby adding tremendous nutritional value. It’s a valuable Veteran Move for anyone in any Kitchen and eggplant is the operative veggie in this recipe!

Sheet Pan Pineapple Chicken Fajitas offers all the nutritional punch of peppers and pineapple. Chicken is also chock full of vitamins and minerals essential to psychological health as well as body tissue strength and cell growth.

For my money THE most important Veteran Tool in my kitchen is my Smith’s mini-sharpener. Sharp knives are a must for every cook because they’re safer to use. Even the best quality knives make cooking a chore if they’re allowed to go dull.
