Happy Anniversary to me and my hubby! Today, we celebrate 27 years of marriage and a total of 30 years together. We haven’t made any elaborate plans to celebrate. All I want is a quiet dinner out where I don’t have to get all fancied up to get full.

Since we just vacationed in Havana, Cuba this past January and have vacation plans coming up this summer, we scaled back on our normal anniversary bash. Last year, we checked into a day spa which I thought was amazing. However, the hubby complained the entire time about everything and nothing so we won’t be lounging in white bath robes and sipping on champagne. Instead, we will throw our three favorite casual dining dives in the ring and settle on one. I also plan on preparing this simple Sunday meal with chicken and a bunch of veggies which are hanging out in my fridge.

This easy peasy recipe is like those famous dump cake recipes where you dump a few chopped veggies in with some yard bird, bake and serve. Braised Chicken Legs with Veggies is a favorite go to meal for me and this recipe will soon be a favorite of yours.
