    HealthyChocolate's Note:

    Double or triple this if you like. It's one of the most low cal, filling, and nutrient-packed of all recipes, and freezes well. Shovel what's left over into Ziplocs, lunch containers, or freezer. Tastes even better with re-heating!

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Spray skillet with cooking spray.
    2. 2
      Cut chicken into small chunks.
    3. 3
      Over medium high heat, sautee chicken until golden.
    4. 4
      Pour off all drippings, leave chicken in pan.
    5. 5
      Add whole container of barbecue sauce, stir, then add all the vegetables.
    6. 6
      Reheat all, stirring occasionally, adding more water if sauce too thick.
    7. 7
      Let simmer and serve in 4 ounce portions.
    8. 8
      Further note 1) : Sugar free barbecue sauce has 1/6th or less sugar of regular barbecue sauce. I got mine online at Amazon.com. Smokin' Joe Jones No Sugar and Walden Farms Calorie Free are both terrific. I sometimes further thin them with water.
    9. 9
      2) Keep a Ziploc bulging with pre-cut pretty-colored peppers & squash. You do the washing and cutting all at once (ugh), but then they're ready and you just dump them inches.

      I wasn't able to find sugar-free BBQ sauce at the store so had to use regular. It went over well with the kids. I thought it was pretty good, but very sweet since I had full-sugar BBQ (not by fault of the recipe at all). I wasn't sure how I would feel about BBQ sauce on my veggies but it was better than I expected. I think this would be best served over rice. I like that it was super easy to put together. The only dislike I had is that the BBQ was a bit overpowering. Thank you for the recipe.
