Healthy Diet Chicken and Vegetables

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by The 20 pound strugg

Healthy diet chicken with vegetables combines the ease of frozen chicken breasts with the nutritional benefits of fresh vegetables. What I like about this easy recipe is that little differences in my choice of seasonings can create a variety of tastes without compromising on my basic diet requirements. The basic recipe calls for basil, but you can easily substitute lite soy sauce and some sliced water chestnuts for a Chinese flavor. Can be served on rice or noodles but is great as is.

Top Review by Malia

I'm so happy about stumbling across this recipe. It is so good and far better than I thought it would be. Even my son ate it over and over. I did not drain the diced tomatoes. I'm glad I did it that way. Keeps it moist when there are left overs. The left overs only lasted less than a day.
