Chicken Marinara
Chicken marinara is a well-loved dish, and it doesn't need much modification to make it a nutritious dinner option. The key to flavor with no added sugar is a long, slow simmer time, so plan this for a day when you can do a little meal prepping while the sauce bubbles away in the background.
