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.

Delicious for my Preemie Babay in PAC 2010. Very simple and basic recipe that lends towards variations and LOW fat to boot! I used the zukes and tomatoes that I froze last summer, added in basil from my window garden, a bit of extra garlic as I love garlic and spinach. I also had to add in some chicken broth base that I froze, still needed some chicken flavor. I will certainly make this again as it is very tastey and low fat to boot. You would never know by the flavors imparted. Thank you.
