I am LOVING summer so far!!! While we haven’t gotten into a good summer schedule or started swimming lessons yet, we have already taken a mini-vacation and have been enjoying the sun and warmer weather. And since summer is here and the kids are out of school, that means less time in the kitchen – which is one of the reasons I like this easy gluten free dinner.

Not only does it only take 30 minutes to prepare, but it has tons of great flavor from the balsamic vinegar, lemon zest, and capers and never turns out dry. I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to post ’cause I’ve been making this for years as part of our regular rotation but I’m excited that I’m finally sharing it with you and hope you love it as much as we do!
