Have been having a rough day today. The house has recorded an all time high frustration levels with the baby crying for something I can’t seem to comprehend, my lingering migraine and me unable to do any work cause he is clung to me like I am the mother kangaroo to him the baby kangaroo.Just want to add-I am extremely thankful for people who have devoted their lives in making mother’s lives and back a little load free.Kolkol people you have my eternal thanks!

Ok now that I have finished berating let me come to the actual point of this blog post. The amazingly scrumptious herbalicious butter garlic Chicken.

This was my evening snack yesterday, also dinner last night and breakfast this morning. The pictures unfortunately don’t do justice but the chicken was one silver lining in my crazy day!

I made a quick sandwich with the leftovers with some Dijon mustard and some veggies.At least in the whole chaos of feeding, cleaning, directing and giving a bath to the baby this was easy peasy and quick! So here is my suggestion-make lots of it and use it as a sandwich filler for the next few meals!
