Day 7 – Another Recipe (Ranch Chicken)

Well, I fell into my problem of morning work outs and I had a poor mindset this morning. I knew I had a limited amount of time that I could squeeze one in after work so that is my plan (Dirty 30 Extreme).

That being said, I want to share another clean eating recipe… ranch chicken. Not only was this delicious and a large portion, but it also is just a one – pot meal.


2 teaspoons olive oil

1 pound of chicken – cute into bite sized pieces

1/2 red onion

2 peppers (I used one yellow and one orange)

1 zucchini

1/2 can black beans drained and rinsed

1 bag of boil in a bag instant brown rice

1 can fire roasted diced tomatoes, undrained

1/2 cup low sodium chicken broth

1 cup cheddar cheese


Ranch Seasoning (Mix the following in a bowl):

1 tsp of the following: dill, garlic powder, onion powder, dried minced onions

1 tbs: parsley

Salt & Pepper



  1. In a skillet, heat oil on medium high. Add diced chicken, diced onions, and ranch seasoning. Saute and stir often until most of the pink in the chicken is gone.
  2. Add bell peppers, zucchini, beans, tomatoes, rice, and chicken broth. Bring to a boil. Then simmer on low for 5 minutes or until chicken is cooked and rice is tender.
  3. Sprinkle cheese evenly over the skillet and let stand for 5 minutes or until the liquid is observed.



1 serving = 1/4 of the skillet (so 4 servings)

1 Red, 1 Blue, 1 Yellow, 1 1/2 Green
