This may not be a particularly exciting dish but it's healthy & clean & just what you need sometimes after you have had a few bad eating days. It's very simple & quick too! The salsa lends flavor & moistness to the dish without adding any fat!
1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 tsp olive oil
2 red bell peppers, cut into thin strips
1 jalapeno chili pepper, finely chopped
1 medium Vidalia onion, thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup of salsa, mild or hot (we use hot)
I grilled my chicken breasts with a little salt, pepper & garlic powder. Use whatever cooking method you prefer. When cooked set chicken aside & slice. In a medium pan, heat olive oil. Saute vegetables until tender. Add salsa & cook just until warm. Spoon over chicken. Serve over whole grain brown rice.
To give my whole grain brown rice a little more flavor, I use chicken or vegetable broth instead of water. I also throw in a little garlic powder or cilantro depending what the main dish is. This time, I threw in some fresh chopped mushrooms at the very beginning of cooking the rice.
Just omit the jalapenos if you don't want this dish to be spicy.
Have a great weekend everyone!
Tonight I am going out with my best friend Tam to see a show at our intimate & charming Winter Garden Theatre. And Sunday we go to Disney to see my talented nephew perform in a show as part of his high school band. He will also be marching in the parade down Main Street.
