Because of the COVID-19 pandemic and the quarantine that came with it, many started to upload more content on their online platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube to cope with the isolation.
While most just document their daily quarantine lives or do viral challenges on the Internet, some content creators are using their platforms to spread positivity and inspire others, especially amid this health crisis. And one of the inspirational channels My Pope Philippines came across on YouTube is vlogger and mom Heather who runs her YouTube channel, A Catholic Mom’s Life.
Heather’s content ranges from educational videos on Mass etiquette, life tips, and regular vlogs of her family and her five children. As a homemaker, Heather also shares some recipes (including some for Lent!) so it would be easier for her subscribers to find something they can cook for their family. (Read: WATCH: Fr.

A Catholic Mom’s Life Recipes: Margarita Chicken
The Margarita Chicken is a baked chicken breast fillet topped with cheese, tomatoes, and pesto sauce. Heather pairs it with a caesar salad but you can also eat rice with it. She says that this recipe is one that you can make if you’re a big rush and only have an hour or less to prepare food.
Plus, the Margarita Chicken is also healthy because it’s baked and not fried! Check out the procedures here.
